Sneek Peek for Holiday Expo!

Ok, wanted to try to keep my promise of every other day posting.......so here's a quick post for tonight.
I have 2 clubs coming up on Wednesday and Thursday and than my Holiday Expo on Saturday.  I'm trying to create some samples from the just released Holiday Mini Catalog. 

This first card, is a sample you'll see on Saturday if you stop by at the Peoples Bank in Elkhorn, Wisconsin between 10am-3pm.  Make sure you bring your camera!!  Again, I'm going to be showcasing the Holiday Mini.  This card is also my swap for the club I'm in.  I require my club members to make swaps, so it encourages them to use what they buy and to just create!  So many times, we just don't make the time to do it, so I'm forcing them...........yea, that's right forcing them! :0)  I'm in one of my clubs so I figured I'd kill 2 birds with one stone.  My swap and a sample....  I have a new club starting if you are interested in the madness let me know!  You could go home with this swap!!

Before you look, I have to give credit where credit is due.  I took inspiration from a card my upline, Tara Bazata, created.  But changed mine up a bit.  I took the inspiration from the pumpkin from Paisley Prints.  I loved how she used 2 colors for the pumpkin.  I used Pumpkin Pie (of course) and Real Red.  Just gives it a whole new look.

This next picture has the samples of the embossed napkins you'll be doing if you come to my little Expo.  Both of these are done with the 2 new embossing folders in the Holiday Mini, Spider Web and Northern Flurry.  Of course they are done with the Big Shot and my mini me, Sage, will be demonstrating how you do them.  So make sure you stop on by if you are in the area!  We'll be making 4 simple projects free of charge and one project that is a little more involved for a small fee.

I hope you are able to zoom in and see the detail better, I'm not the best blog picture taker!  But these are so stinking cute and so easy!  I bet you'd pay a pretty penny if you bought them like this in the store.  I bought a package of 30 plain cocktail napkins for a $1.  And now my Halloween or Christmas party will have that extra WOW factor!!
