It's going around...

... must be flu season. My only participant for last Saturday phoned and said she had the flu, so that got cancelled. I'll see what happens about her choosing another date to cardmake or if she'll join the other ladies at the end of Nov.

However, I was semi-productive and was able to make gifts for all my workshop participants last weekend. I took the new Artiste cartridge for a whirl and it's got so many fun things in it! It did unfortunately cut one of my shapes off center, so I decided to update the firmware for my E2.

I made little bags which contain a little something for each of them coming by!

I'm hoping that everyone is hale and healthy for my November workshop and for all of you - stay safe this Halloween!

Trick or Treat,

Las Vegas, Very Merry Christmas and Studio J!!

My apologies for the late post for the beginning of October. I started it in sunny Las Vegas, and came back to Calgary's first snow day. What a weather shock but that's what you get for travelling over Canadian Thanksgiving.

Marshmallow Hot Chocolate, Max Brenner Chocolate Resturaunt

This isn't the prettiest photo I've posted to date, but it's from my ancient iPhone 3GS with poor lighting. I went to Max Brenner's resturaunt located in Caesar's Palace - Forum Shops. This mug was so darn cute that I had to actually take one home. Well, the hubby left me to my own devices in Vegas...

This month's constant campaign is all about Studio J! Studio J is our digital scrapbooking tool and you can create layouts in minutes using a mouse, a computer and your imagination.
I have used this software even though I am at heart a traditionalist scrapbooker, and was surprised at how fast and easy this was! All the embellishments and papers were at my fingertips. This month buy 9 Studio J layouts and get the 10th one for free!

Last but never least the gorgeous October SOTM is all about Christmas. I've had Christmas on the brain since someone walked by me with eggnog at the local grocery store. As usual, spend 50$ or more this month and snag this set in time to make Xmas cards for only $5.00 more.

Check out these beautiful projects that the talented design team at CTMH have come up with!! 

As always, don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to snag a set for yourself! Don't forget also that the starter kit is available for $35 - click here for details: http://stamped-by-hand.blogspot.ca/2012/09/starter-kits.html

Stay warm,
