Fall Fest Continues

I forgot to show you how the day started.  Everyone arrived just before 9:00 a.m.  I made them line up in the hall way until time to open the stamping room.  Here's the picture of everyone with happy smiling faces waiting for a fun filled day of stamping.  
Waiting to Get In

When I opened the door to let them in bag full of goodies and specially designed Fall Fest Mug were sitting on the table waiting for them.
Bag & MugThey loved their new mugs.  I had a Keurig machine set up with Apple Cider, Hot Cocoa, Coffee, Tea and flavored creamers –  great way to start the day.

Once they finished the first project I passed out a little treat bag that was filled with caramel corn.
Fall Treat BagEveryone enjoyed that sweet little treat.  Then they moved on to Project #2 — which was the longest project of the day.  
Card BoxThis cute card gift box was filled with five Christmas cards, five 3" x 3" note cards, five tags and a bunch of clothespins to attach the note cards and tags. 
Come back tomorrow to see all fifteen items in the box.

Fall Fest Project 1

Finally I can share my Fall Fest Projects — my sister Tina had her Fall Fest Retreat yesterday so now it's all on.
This was the first project we did. A Star Note Card Set.
The box is the Gift Card Enclosures from the Annual Catalog. We used the Bright & Beautiful Stamp Set with Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green ink.
Watch for tomorrow's projects

Sparkling Christmas Tree

I can almost start showing you pictures from my Fall Fest Retreat last month. This is one of the cards that were swapped that day.
I believe Jackie V. made this card. She had never stamped before but wanted to come join in the fun. Her friend Tammy helped design the card, showed her how to cut it out and Jackie stamped and assembled the card.
Not bad for a new stamper, huh …. well she tied for 1st place. Everyone in attendance voted on their favorite 1st, 2nd and 3rd card and Jackie tied for 1st place. Isn't that AWESOME.
I can't wait to start planning for next year's retreat. You should come and join the fun. Wait until you see the projects we did this year. Keep coming back to check them all out.
