Last, but certainly not least, is this little cutie!
We used Close to Cocoa, Almost Amethyst, So Saffron, Old Olive and Whisper White cardstock. We used the adorable little stamp set Owl Together Now and colored in with SU markers. We used two different sized circle punches for the sentiment and finished it off with some Old Olive ribbon. Oh, and we stamped the Almost Amethyst with the Sanded background. Love that background stamp!!

This is the second card we did at Stamp Club Tuesday evening! I got the colors from the color wheel (of course! LOVE that tool!) except I added in Taken With Teal. But, Taken With Teal is the Duo to Tempting Turquoise, so I knew it would work, too.
Cardstock used is Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, and Naturals Ivory. Ink used is Tempting Turquoise and Taken With Teal. Chocolate Chip ribbon and hemp string. We used the True Friend stamp set. And my personal favorite, the ticket corner punch.
If anyone would be interested in getting a stamp club of their own formed, please do not hesitate to contact me about it! :) How it works....ideally, there needs to be 6 people in the group. If you have 6 people in the group, you're only obligated to have to spend at least $25 every time the Stamp Club meets (that's the minimum, so the hostess can receive hostess benefits). We meet once a month and everybody takes turns being the hostess. When it's your turn to be the hostess, you can have outside orders. As for what we do at Stamp Club depends on what everyone in the club wants to do. We can have an all scrapbook page club, all card club, or a combo of both. I try and incorporate new techniques to show everyone, as well.
Have a Happy Wednesday!!

My very first Stamp Club meeting was tonite! Everyone was so excited, which made me really nervous! What if my projects didn't measure up to what they were expecting?! But, everyone loved them! Yay!! We decided to do a technique every time we meet. We will do 2-3 projects using that technique. Thanks for a great meeting, girls!
Tonite, we did the Grid Technique....scoring lines every 1/2" on a piece of cardstock. I love how it just adds a little bit of texture for a big wow effect and so stinkin' easy! No extra tools needed because everyone has a trimmer and a scoring blade or bone folder! (Boner as Angie likes to call it! LOL!) We did 3 cards tonite using the technique which I'll be showing on here over the next couple of days.
I wanted to take a picture of our little group tonite, but poor Angie wasn't feeling well at all. She left right after we finished up the cards. So, next time we meet in November, I'll be taking a group picture!
Here's the first card we did tonite. I have to say, this was my favorite card! I saw this cute little ladybug made from the scallop circle punch on another blog (sorry, but I'm blanking on which blog it was!) Isn't it adorable?! This was made using Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, Pink Pirrouette, Whisper White, and Chocolate Chip cardstock. I used Flight of the Butterfly stamp set. Pumpkin Pie and Regal Rose ink, and Chocolate Chip marker for the intenna. I also used the scallop edge punch, tag corner punch, and 1 1/4" circle punch. TFL!

....sucks. My regular one hadn't been playing for about a week. So, I logged into my PB account to check it out. I see nothing but black pics!!! Logged into the forum to ask what was up. Evidently, there's something going on with some of the slideshow templates, with my fave one being one that they're having problems with. Bummer. So, this is the slideshow I'm stuck with until the problems are fixed. But, I do need to do a shout out to PhotoBucket for quick response time to my question in the forum! They answered within like 10 minutes! Pretty cool.

At our events, if you place an order, for every $5 you spend, you get a ticket to place in drawings for different handmade items. Tiffany and I do layouts that all you have to do is add your photos and sets of cards. This was one layout I did.
This was done with a scrapbook kit that was offered during Sell-a-Bration 2 years ago.

This one was well received at the event because it was so EASY!! :)
The upper left corner area is buggin' me....too much "white space". I'm going to have to brainstorm and come up with something to put up there...probably non-Stampin' Up related, so I couldn't do anything to fix it for the event.
This layout uses So Saffron, Old Olive, Sage Shadow (another fave), and Chocolate Chip cardstock. Windsor Knot pattern paper. Define Your Life, Defined Alphabet and one more stamp set that I'm blanking on the name of (I borrowed it from Tiffany). Tag corner punch. More Mustard and So Saffron ink pads. Voila! Quick and easy layout.

After doing this layout, I realized that I've been ignoring one fabulous color....Not Quite Navy! I think it's one of my favorite colors right now!
This layout uses Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, and Basic Gray cardstock. Urban Garden pattern paper. Upsy Daisy and Pocket Silhouttes stamp sets. Photo corner, 1 3/8" , 1 1/4", and scallop circle punches.

I don't have anything else scrappy related to post! Yikes! Well, I have the 4 layouts I've done for me and Tiffany's awesome Scrapbook Event this Saturday to show off, but I can't do that yet. Not until after the Event is over!! PageMaps is having a blog contest, so I think I may try to whip something up for that...it's a half map. Not ever done a half map. And, my newest assignment for Creatively Yours is doing that same format. Wish me luck!
I'm home today with a sick kiddo. McKenna was feeling yucky last night and threw up around 9:30p. Then, proceeded to keep throwing up about every 2-3 hours all night long. Made for kind of a long night, so I called in "sick" to work today. She's sleeping on the couch right now, feeling pretty puny.
Had a great visit with Aunt Jeanne this weekend! We went and visited Christian at Georgia Tech and got to see where he lives. Went to Chuck E Cheese to celebrate Micah's birthday. On Sunday we went to Aunt Jeanne's church, North Point Community Church, where the main preacher guy is none other than Andy Stanley. Pretty cool. Steve and I had no idea. Our 24/7 bible study group is currently watching one of his series. The church is HUGE and is sooooo cool. Wish I had taken pictures.
That's it for now. I'll try and do something scrappy related and get back on track. I know how boring regular text posts can be! LOL!
