What you missed at the first card buffet

I held the first of what I hope will be many card buffets at Buffalo Joe's down in New Richmond on Front St a couple of weeks ago. It was a great time and I have decided to continue to do so on the first Monday of the month.  Each buffet is held from 6:30 and you have till 9:00 to make as many cards as you like.  There will be 10 cards to make and you can make one or more of each design.  Cost is $15 for the first 8 cards and $2 for each card after.   Space is limited to 10 people so if you want to come to stamp with us on April 1st let me know ASAP!!!

The cards rotate so that there are 5 new cards each month and here are a couple of the cards you missed last month.

What I can do when I am not sitting in a parking lot

I was looking on Pinterest the other day and saw some projects using the All Dressed Up items from Stampin' Up!'s Spring Catalog and came across one that really struck a chord with me.  So I set out to make one of my own.  Then while crafting madly I got a text, Sarah would pick Kaylee up at work. Have I ever mentioned how much I like Sarah?  Such a sweetheart.  So anyways, this allowed me to continue working and I came up with this.

It uses the 2013 Sale A Bration paper, Sycamore Street, that is only available till March 22nd for the background and the stamp sets, Curly Cute and Feels Good embossed in Black Embossing Powder for the sentiments.

I am going to send this to one of our German "daughters" who is getting married in December.  It is in a acrylic frame that stands on it's own that I got at the Dollar Tree.

Edited to add..
PHOTOS from the SU! Blog !
 Little one liners, I love these little 3x3 cards.
 Adorable birthday frame
And did you see how they bend these around to make curves and such!  C'mon Mr UPS man, get these to my house pronto.  

Stampin' Up! has searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And they've found it. We're excited to announce that we now have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps! The new photopolymer will be an addition to our stamp line and will appeal to all types of stampers. Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, let's just say they're meant for each other! Photopolymer stamps will also be unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional wood- and clear-mount stamp options. 

What makes them so great?
  • They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time! 
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last. 
  • Can you say sticky? (Don't worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time. 
  • They use FDA, food-safe material. How far can you stretch your stamping creativity? 
  • We could go on, but we'll let you try them for yourself.

They are clearly a great choice.
