New Fancy Pants!

They are already flying out the door. Speaking of which, we completely sold through October Afternoon's Good Cheer. I usually do not reorder the trendy or holiday lines, since we always need to keep making room for more new lines, but since we sold out in two days I did place a reorder for the papers in Good Cheer. October Afternoon said they would be here after Thanksgiving.

December Card Creations Class and Card Swap Info

Hi! I just wanted to pop on really quick and show you the great cards we'll be making in next month's Card Creations Class! I hope you can make it!

Here is the group shot:

I thought about doing holiday stuff but it seems like most people will have theirs sent out already! I decided to play it safe and do some everyday use stuff. And, any of the greetings can be changed... everyone will be getting their own set of letter stickers to use for the class!

Here are some close up shots of the cards:

Here are the class details:

Where: Scrapdoodles in Fredericksburg, VA
When: December 13th 2008
Time: 1:30-3:30pm
What to bring: Your basics... scissors, trimmer, a pencil, and your favorite adhesive

To sign up, call Scrapdoodles at 540-548-3788.

I am also hosting a card swap at the store. Here are the details:

Description: We will be swapping standard (A2- 5.5 x 4.25") size cards. They should be made with lots of layers and at least one embellishment. Please bring only your best work, something you'll be proud of! Any theme is fine, as long as it is something someone else can use.

Quantity: We will try to keep the groups at 8 people, plus one for the store to display. So, 9 cards total.

Deadline: Please sign up by November 15th by calling the store at 540-548-3788. That will give everyone enough time to work on their cards. Cards will be due to the store by December 13th by 5pm. Join us for a crop that night to celebrate and exchange cards or pick up your cards after December 14th. I'll be doing a quick card make-n-take during the crop, too! The crop is $10 and includes snacks and beverages.

It should be a lot of fun so I hope you decide to join us!!

Thanks as always for checking out the blog!
