November calendar of events

I love My Digital Studio - I use it mostly for my monthly calendars-- so here you go.  I think in a week or two I might spotlight the calendar I just made for Nathan on his mission.

But, this is the calendar for November with all the events I have going on.  Watch in the next few days for photos of the Holiday Gift projects and prices.

Double take of a Double take!

Or is it double, double, take?  I am not sure.  I liked the idea that the club ladies could choose their own individual touch to the card that I did another one at the hostess club that they could do just that.  This card was a CASE from Mary Fish - a fellow Tucson demonstrator.

Stampin' UP!  has great ways to support their demonstrators and there are other means out there in our highly technological world to get support.  Mary is also a transplant to Tucson and hooked up with our Southwest Stampers group.  It is always nice to get together with other demos, but in a pinch, I have to admit I turn to my cyber demos on SUDSOL.  I had the privilege of being stop #4 on their blog hop yesterday!

Back to the card.  I used the stamp set Easy Events so the ladies could choose from 8 different celebrations!  They all turned out fantastic.  I told the ladies that they could make these as gifts and stamp a bunch of different sentiments to let the recipient choose what event they needed.

The first is the CASE from Mary, the second is my additional version for a birthday.

Stamps: Easy Events
Colors: Whisper White, Basic Black
Accessories: Red Glimmer Paper, Silver Glimmer Paper, 1 3/8" square punch, 1 1/4" square punch, 1" square punch, Heart to  Heart punch, Blossom Bouquet triple layer punch, Scallop Square die

Club double take

More club card shares for you today.  These two cards were the options for the gals.  I thought that not all people like to send Halloween cards so I created a simple solution- two cards that are similar, but can be easily adapted to a different celebration.  I began with the Give Thanks card and with a few additional stamped images created a fun Halloween card.

Stamps: Jack of All Trades, Hand Penned Holidays
Colors: Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Soft Suede
Accessories: Photo Corner punch (retired)

With a few additional pieces you can get a great Halloween card ....

Stamps: Jack of All Trades, Grateful Greetings

Accessories: Corner Rounder punch, Ticket Corner punch, Scallop Square punch, Postage Stamp punch
