Get paper crafty with me and create hand stamped greeting cards and scrapbook layouts. Do either or both activities for a jam packed inky fingers sessions.

Session times are Monday, November 18th, 6:30-8:30pm or Wednesday, November 20th, 8:30am in Sun Prairie.

Card Buffet stampers create 10 hand stamped greeting cards with all supplies cut according to the samples provided and tucked into the envelopes. You pick which designs to create and how many of each design from a buffet of options. Cost is $20 to enjoy all this fun!

Let me do the prep work for you. Each additional card kit is $1. Nice!

Scrapbookers create 3, 2 page 12×12 inch layouts. I provide all the supplies to create the layouts in kits according to the samples.

Adhesives are $5 extra for card making or bring your own. I’ll have new packages of glue dots, dimensionals, liquid glue, tear n tape and SNAIL for sale as well.

You are welcome to bring friends! A new friend that has not stamped with me before earns you an extra card kit. If you are a member of my Super Awesome Stampers team, you get an extra kit too.

Place an order during the event or online using the host code on the right side of my blog and receive an extra kit.

Please invite your friends! I reserve the right to cancel the session if less than 3 stampers RSVP.

Please RSVP by Thursday, November 14th so I have enough time to prepare kits for you.

Scrapbookers prepay by November 5th so I have enough time order and prepare supplies.

Monday night session is at Carol’s. I’ll relay address and building entry details when you RSVP. We spread out in her apartment’s community room.

Wednesday morning is at my house.

Would you like a private session with your group? Just ask for dates!

Hope to stamp with you then!

Cajun Craze cardstock and ink along with very vanilla used for the neutral provides an autumn feel. Leaves are from the Gather Together suite along with a framelit from Seasonal Layers for the delicate leaf and Colorful Seasons stamp set from the smaller maple leaf stamp.

This is how I roll

My Mom wanted to know how I got my stamp expo display set up to my booth. Here you go Mom!

IMG_0344IMG_0343

My Lands’ End rolling suitcases I purchased years ago when I worked as a call agent have served me well over the years. Countless vacations to far away places, trips up and down the interstate and short jaunts to the expo:) I can pack 5 tubs (that equals 5 projects) per suitcase, strap on the Big Shot on top of one suitcase and my catalog bag on the other and away I roll!

The expo center has rolling carts to transport my containers to my car. I went home with a lighter load so that helps with pack up.

Thanks to everyone that stopped at my booth. I’ll be following up with you in the next week. If you have found some goodies in the catalogs you would like to order, you can do so by clicking on Shop Now on the right side of my blog. Please use host code EKNVNV97 if your order is less than $150. If it is over $150, do not use the code so you can redeem all the host rewards!

I have deglitterized the cutting table from preparing the snow peeps make-n-take I featured at my booth. Tomorrow I tackle deglitterizing the main table where I prepared the kits!

Here are the 2 make-n-takes. Can you guess which one was more popular? Leave a comment with your guess. Toodles!

Twas the Night Before Stamp Expo…

screen shot 2019-01-20 at 8.31.58 am

Twas the night before stamp expo pack up and all through the house, the supply tubs were stacked high, almost to the ceiling I dare!

The prep tables were a mess of snippets of ribbons, empty spool rolls, scraps of pretty patterned papers left next to Carl Cutter, he is my second boyfriend you know;)

Lots of self adhesive embellishments were cut apart, stuffed into kits, ready for the Card Buffets’ start.

The score board is worn out, markers placed at 4.25 and 5.5 inches. Where is the stylus? Stored right on the board for scores on one last minute design.

Fifteen packages of whisper white envelopes opened and how many whisper white cardstock packages cut down? I have lost count!

A few more hours to prep for scrapbooking class. My favorite themes: snowpeeps, fall and flowers. The time will go quick!

Now off to bed I go, otherwise I’ll risk punching lopsided daises, for the Tin of Cards class.

See you soon at the One of Kind Stamp and Scrap Expo in Madison!
