Happy World Cardmaking Day!

Saturday, October 3rd is World Cardmaking Day. Some of the Everything Scrapp'n Design Team thought we would inspire you & show you some of the stamping products in the store.

Teresa made a great set of cards using the 4x4 pack of Jenni Bowlin Paper. The print on these pads is a smaller version of the original making it perfect for card making.

Front Porch Mini Paper Pack

Jana is showcasing some of the new acrylic stamp sets in the store.

Pink Paislee Amber Road Impressions Stamp set contains 7 separate images making it perfect for scrapbooking or card making. I love the vintage look. You can't beat the price either - the entire set is $4.99!

The papers she chose are by Little Yellow Bicycle.

The sentiment tag is Pink Paislee - look at all you get for @2.49.

Prima has some great acrylic stamp sets. For less than $2 you get a row of bling too. At that price you can buy 2 of each one for you & the other set to have on hand for a quick inexpensive gift for a fellow stamper. (the photos of the stamps are linked to the store)

The Hambly overlay looks fantastic against the kraft paper. Vintage Patchwork offers 4 different prints for one low price. They are also perfect for inexpensive acrylic mini albums. This one is on sale for $0.38!

Last but not least I (Suz) made several cards.

My first card I used the Pink Paislee Amber Road stamp set along with the matching paper scraps from all the layouts I've been doing using it.

Nikki Sivils papers are filled with whimsy.

Who says inexpensive cards have to lack pizazz... I used the front & back of this paper, a simple sentiment stamp & some stitching.

This is another line by Nikki that is just adorable. Henry's Brilliance 6x6 pad would make the cutest children birthday cards.

Finally I thought I would show you a sneak peak of the Pink Paislee Christmas paper that will be coming in stock very soon. It is my favorite Christmas line from CHA summer. This gift card holder was a make & take in the manufacturers booth.

Thanks so much for letting us inspire you.

I encourage you to make a card for our soldiers on active duty to send back home to their loved ones. Check out Operation Write Home for more details. It's a wonderful organization & really makes me feel like I'm doing something to support the troops in my little way with my love of card making.

Finally I wanted to remind you of the November Guest Designer spot. See the October Newsletter post for more details 10/2/2009 (it's toward the bottom). I can't wait to see the talented layouts/cards that come in!

Have a great time creating this weekend. Post a comment to links to your creations so we can see your work.

Scrapbooking Recipes

With the holidays coming so fast we need more hours in our day. One way I've found to help is quick and easy meals. Here is one that I love to use when I have a full day.

Lazy Log Cabin Casserole:

1lb stew meat cubed
1 can of Cream of Celery
1 can of Cram of Mushroom
1 packet of Beef Onion Soup (I don't use this. I just add salt, pepper, garlic powder and dried minced onions but I'm an eye ball cook)
Toss all this in the crock pot together give it a stir put it on low and cook it for 6 - 8 hours. Home cooked meal with just a few moments prep. Put a salad bag with it and your hubby can't be upset that there isn't a home cooked meal on the table.
