Busy Busy Busy!!!!!

Well the last few weeks I've been working with an amazing Upline who has been helping me (and others in our group) work on our Biz!! We are just now starting week 4 of the 12 week program... Last week was AMAZING!! I Was challenged to get creative for a show coming up.... So I did!!! I'll be sharing a few of these amazing projects with you....

But first let me tell you about my On-Line Gathering going on right now..... My ScrapPKat Gathering is set to run til Nov 4th... But here is the kicker, When the sales reach $150... I will choose one customer to be my hostess.... that means, the winner will get the hostess rewards.... A party of $150 = $25 of free amazing products!!! So get in on the fun.... go to my Web store, log in (create an account if you haven't), then join the ScrapPKat Gathering!!

Hello to all my Scrap P friends.... I've been challenged by my up-line to get some bookings, do an event, and do some work shops or make and takes over the next 3 months - I have booked an event for December (more on that when I get my details - its a vendor blender) but now I need to get some other stuff going as well.... The challenge is to get some booked before next Monday (Oct 26th)... I hope you all can help me out....

OK Challenge number one....

Make & Take 1 - With the holidays upon us I think it will be fun to have a make and take party. I need some hostesses for these parties... I'd like to have at least 2 before the end of November... your guests will pay $10, and i will bring all the supplies to make a minimum of 5 cards each...

Make & Take 2 - Rediscovering Memories gift - Same concept as above, I will give you the hostess 2-3 options of some fun projects you and your guests can make as gifts or for themselves (prices will vary) These will have to be booked before Dec 15th...

As the hostess of the make and take(with minimum # of guests), your supplies are free and I will have a special gift for you depending on the size of your make and take.....

For my out of area scrappers... I would like to have a few on line gatherings.... I will create your gathering on my online biz site with you as the hostess.... we will do a 2 week gathering where you invite your friends to go to my site and order CTMH stuff from your gathering.... you will receive all the hostess rewards for your gathering, and I will send you an ink pad of your choice for every $100 spent .... after your gathering has closed! ($300 party = 3 colors of your choice) Anyone interested in holding an online gathering please message me here or email me at

And lastly I would like to start 2 clubs - one on line and one here in town. Each member will be a hostess for one club meeting... the club will be as many months as we have members - ie 6 members - 6 months, 10 members 10 months etc.... If your interested in either club contact me. My club choices are 1. scrapbooking - we do 1 two page layout a month for $10 the hostess gets her supplies free and anything ordered at the club will be for her hostess rewards. choice 2. cards - we will make all occasion cards depending on the month - prices and number of cards will vary on club members... 3. my creations pocket book club - and finally 4. a Gift a month club. If interested in any of these clubs please contact me on facebook or email me at

I decided to do 3 projects this month : a box, a card & a 12x12 layout... I hope they will inspire you!

My lil Halloween treat box :
 I got these boxes at The Dollar Tree  - White Wedding Favor Boxes, 12-ct. Packs - $1 (you can order them online but you got to buy a case for $36 (that's 432 boxes these are great for gatherings etc))

So I ran some Laughing Lola paper through my Fiskers paper crimper..
I also used it on my card... I love this tool!!!
Here are my results:

* Front *

* Back *

My Thank You card:

I just got the #M1029 - A True Thank You acrylix stamp from CTMH and wanted to try it out.... And I loved how the crimper worked on my Halloween box, so I used Laughing Lola gold for my base and crimped it,

Then I used different colors of our exclusive inks and stamped in a light pattern before I stamped the final Thank you in black.

To finish it off I sponged around the edges with the Gypsy Ink

My last project a 12x12 layout - Something Magical

I cut around part of the paper to make interesting borders on the page, then I added a strip of black and a strip of gold and added some SPARKLES!!

I got my crimper out again, and crimped gold and black paper, and added a leather magical embellishment I got from Hobby Lobby... :)

Laughing Lola is my favorite paper pack... I just love all the colors and style of these papers... You probably have those creative juices flowing by now, so if you would like to purchase this beautiful paper pack please feel free to order Item #X71708 pictured below from my OBA web syte - Close To My Heart with ScrapPKat :)

Wine Glass Lamps

Well for a wedding of a friend, we are crafting a lot of the decorations our selves.... I found this idea on line at ... The pattern and directions are on that link... This is my first try at it using CTMH Laughing Lola paper. It calls for Vellum paper (which is what we got for the wedding)   But I just wanted a quick run through to see how it looks in real life... Here's what I got:

My photo's aren't the best... lol... But its really pretty... gonna add some bling, get a better light for it and maybe a different wine glass....  I think it will be awesome!! This is a really fun and quick project... I have lots of idea's running through my head on this one.... hmmmm

Well really busy getting ready for my first gathering, also I ordered a BANNER to use when I go to craft shows etc... Check it out on my Facebook page.... I have a few projects to share with you in a few days, plus I will have to make sure to post the wine lamps we make for the wedding... 

We are also doing a Scrapbook Shower.... a few weeks after the wedding, when the pictures come in, we are having a scrapbook shower with the Brides friends & family... We will all get together, craft pages for her memory book and have a good time - while giving the Bride an amazing gift to cherish a life time!! 

Well that's all i got for now... Until next time - Meow4Now - PKat
