Losing A Friend...

Well, hello again! It's been awhile...

Our lives have been changed in the last week or so. Our good friend and camper, Bill Cove, passed away suddenly last Tues morning. Bill was a very good friend, both to my husband and I, and to all 4 of my boys. Kakut Lake will never be the same without his smiling face and helping hands. He will be missed. Not only by our family, but by many in our community as well as the campers who knew him so well.

Our favorite "resident" campers... even in the snow!

So, with the week filled with my own family happenings as well as Bill's family happenings, I haven't been online much. My stamp-a-stack date has been changed to Nov. 7th at 7pm. Please RSVP asap to reserve a spot!

And... another sad happening... my camera got dropped! So, I have no photos to share. I've been trying to make a few projects for a "home show" which I was asked to attend on Nov. 5th. Wish me luck, as I haven't been to a crafty kind of event like this in years! I will try to post pics when I can.

Thanks for your patience in waiting for something new!

Christmas Card Stamp-A-Stack

Just a reminder to all that my Christmas Card Stamp-A-Stack is being held this Fri at 7pm at the Kakut Lake Hall. We'll be making 5 each of 4 different styles of cards. All Christmas, all Stampin' Up! All you need to bring is adhesive, scissors, and $25! I'll provide the snacks, and all the materials needed for you to create! Give me a shout if you'd like to join in! Sorry I have no pics, since my camera is being repaired after taking a tumble. I'll post them when I can.

Well, its been a while...

How are ya'll, anyway? We've been fighting colds for the last week, but seems like we're slowly getting back to normal, whatever that is!

And so, with only 1.5 hours left of the 15th of this month, I have the new Stampin' Up! layout kit for you! Using the Big Top Designer Series Paper, it's pretty bright, wouldn't you say? I really like the detail of the animals and people, so I cut them out (sometimes referred to as "fussy cutting") and added them to my page. Makes for a really simple, but fun page.

Have a look...

I always add 2 sets of die-cut letters in the kit for a title. So, here I've shown it as you would make it... without a title... until you put it on. I use Stampin' Up!'s alpha dies for the title.

The question was asked "will you make the kits up for me?". I said sure. If you would prefer to get the kit already made and as you see it (other than the title that is!), I will make it up for you and send it that way instead of in pieces! Just let me know when you order which way you'd prefer. I won't charge any more for putting them together.

The price on this kit is only $10.00, since there aren't as many embellishments, etc included.

Thanks for looking!
