I have two things to share with you today – a card and a whole lot of World Card Making Day news and thoughts.
First, meet today’s card.
The papers here come from American Crafts, KI Memories and Bazzill. The letter stickers and rub-on are from American Crafts, too.
Second, World Card Making Day is coming up on Oct. 3rd. Have you made any plans this year?
Well, if you are in the Northwest, I’d love to see you at Stampin’ Cat Studio, a wonderful rubber stamp in Salem, Ore. The day there is going to be big… no wait… super big fun.
Lisa and her team have all kinds of fun things planned at the store that day – a card swap, a card contest, door prizes and demos! They are going all out. Plus, I’ll be there to teach two sessions of a special WCMD class from Paper Crafts magazine and the WCMD sponsors.
Give Stampin’ Cat a call for more information. You can also get directions to the store on their Web site.
If you can’t make it to Stampin’ Cat, perhaps you’ll be able to meet one of my Go-to-Gal friends at one of the stores they’ll be at.
Betsy will be at Scrapbook Your Life in Iowa. Kim H. will be at Scrapbooks to Remember in Arizona. Maren will be hanging out at Memory Lane Scrapbooking in Missoula, Montana. Jess will be at Scrapbooks N Such in Wichita Falls, TX.
And let’s not forget Kim “the craftiest girl I know” Kesti. 😉 She’ll be teaching a whole line up of classes at the CKC Glendale event in Arizona .
Just in case you can’t make it out to a WCMD event, here are a couple other ideas for celebrating:
* Get together with your friends and spent a few hours making cards. At the end of the day, swap cards.
* Introduce a non-card making friend to card making. Make a simple card like the one I posted today and gather up supplies to make a few identical cards. Give everything to your friend as an “Introduction to Card Making” kit.
* Check out the WCMD site for contests and inspiration. Lots and lots of stuff there.
* Call your local retailer. If they don’t have anything planned, ask them if they might open their crop room to card makers or offer a special demo for the day.
Well, that is all for now. I’ll be back tomorrow.
