The Winner is......

I used to select the winning note pad from all the entries received at September's Club Meetings.  And the winner is..........................Lyn!  Visit my last three blog posts to see all of the note books that my creative stampers made!  Lyn will get to pick a prize from my basket at our next club meetings (October 19 & 20.)  CLICK HERE to go to my Stampin' Up! website to see my complete list of events.

Besides decorating their notebooks, I had several club members bring other projects for "Show & Tell."

Below is a Hershey's Bar that Connie decorated  for the children in her preschool class to take home on the first day of school.  Connie & I work at the same preschool and she is also on my Stampin' Up! team.

The card below was made by Linda, who is also one of my team members.  She is an artist!  Her work is always beautiful.

The card below was made by Lisa.  Lisa also works at the same preschool as Connie and me.  This is such a pretty card.  You can never go wrong using the stamp set "Lovely as a Tree."

The card below was made by Patti.  She used the triple time stamping technique to make her card.  

 I would love to teach you and your friends how to make this kind of card.  It is easier than you might think!  CLICK HERE and HERE to see other cards using this technique.

If I missed anyone's project, please forgive me!  Can't wait to see what my club members will bring for "Show & Tell" this month!

Please CONTACT ME OR VISIT MY STAMPIN' UP! WEBSITE for more information about my stamp clubs or to Join my Team!

For a limited time you can join for only $25 so if you were ever thinking about it, now is the time to do it!

More Club Notebooks

Here are more of the notebooks that my club members made.  (See yesterday's post for more details.)

This is Patti's notebook:

These is Jean's notebook:

This is Kim's notebook.  Kim was an out of town guest of Jean and Patti's and so was not at our September meeting.  But I wanted to show you her notebook and make sure she was entered in my club contest!  I am not sure why these photos are rotated!  I tried to fix it - but had no luck.  Not sure if it is because the  photos were emailed to me........hope you don't mind just tilting your head!

Thanks for stopping by and check back tomorrow for the last set of notebooks!

Club Notebooks

I always like to keep my club members stamping in between our monthly meetings.  At our August stamp club meetings we made quick and easy notebooks to hold a small legal pad.  You can see my super plain undecorated one by CLICKING HERE.  I challenged my club members to decorate their notebooks and bring them to our September club meeting.  I was impressed with the results and I am sure you will be, too!

 This is Diane's notebook (outside and inside.)

This is Nancy F's notebook:

This is Connie's notebook:

(Do you see my  name at the top of Connie's Christmas Card list?!)

And this is Lisa's notebook:

Truly Grateful

 This was the third project we made at my September stamp club meetings.  It is a notecard made using the stamp set, Truly Grateful.  I won this set at the Stampin' Up! convention this summer.  It is available to order from the current Holiday Catalog.  It is perfect set for making Autumn or Thanksgiving cards. I always encourage my club members to make the card their own, and below is the same card with a few changes.
I think this was Ellen's card.  She put the linen thread on the stamped image and changed how the banner was punched.  We used Stampin' Up!'s notecards as the base for these cards.  They are a great value: 20 Whisper White cards with envelopes for only $5.95.  Can you see the wood grain texture on the Chocolate Chip cardstock?  That was made using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and the Big Shot.   My club members had a chance to use the new Envelope Liners Framelits Dies to line the envelopes using Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper.  I don't have a photo.......but it sure added a WOW factor to the card.

Cupcake Throne

This was the second project we made at my September Stamp club meetings.  I stayed with the cupcake theme and made a little cupcake holder. Hopefully you will be able to imagine a cute cup cake sitting on this throne!  I made a few adjustments to a tutorial on Jan Tink's blog so that we could make these "thrones" using just one single sheet of 8 1/2 x 11" card stock.

Stampin' Up! Supplies:
Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Whisper Whiter card stock, Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper. Raspberry Ripple ink,  2 1/2" circle punch, scallop oval punch, Designer Label punch, Bring On The Cake stamp set.

Cupcake Card

 This was the first project we made at my September stamp club meetings.  I have been wanting to make this card ever since I received one similar to it for my birthday from my Convention roommate, Dawn.  You can see her card BY CLICKING HERE.  This card uses the current In Colors Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Baked Brown Sugar..... LOVE THEM!!!!  Below is what you see when you open the card:
It looks like the cupcakes are floating!  Super Duper Cute!  Everyone loved this card, and except for a lot of punching, this card is fairly easy to make!  CONTACT ME if you would like to make this card with your friends at a private class!

Another Winner

Way back in July I found this wooden box which is really meant to store cassette tapes. I have 4 boxes like this hanging on the wall in my craft room.  They are perfect for storing Stampin' Up! ink pads.  I didn't need another one, but I couldn't pass it up when I saw it at a Thrift Shop.  So I had a contest for my customers to come up with an idea for what they would do for this box.  Connie won - she is going to make titles for displaying my students work this year.  I think I got the better end of the deal!
