Desktop Pretties Class Recap and World Card Making Day Preliminary Information

Saturday was my Desktop Pretties Class. We made composition books altered with the Stampin' Up! Bella Rose Designer Series Paper (my new obsession), coordinating pens, and pebble magnets using Designer Series Paper and coordinating In Color Cardstock. It was fun and interesting to see how everybody put their own twist on their projects!

I, however, was a terrible hostess and didn't take the first picture of anybody's creations! My dear friend, Vicki, sent me photos of hers to post (see above and below) and I hope to have a few more photos to share soon as well.

Thanks for sharing, Vicki! I did manage to take a photo of Vicki and Kay's make and takes using the products from my September In Color Bundle Special Offer.

Thanks to all of you ladies who joined me. I hope you enjoyed the experience as much as I did!

WORLD CARD MAKING DAY: Also wanted to let everyone know that I have the samples made for my World Card Making Day event! I will be posting those just as soon as my new ribbon arrives to finish embellishing them! I did want to fill you in on the details of how the event will be structured so that you can begin thinking about it.

My card classes are going to be “buffet” style. A stamp set will be offered for purchase. You may purchase the set if you wish; although, it is not required. You would then determine how many cards you wish to make from the samples I present and pay per card.

If you purchase the set, the price per card will be lower than those who do not purchase the set. I thought this would be the most cost effective way for you to get what you want specifically from my classes instead of me "dictating" what you would be doing. The specific information for World Card Making Day is listed below:

10/11/2008 from 12:00 to 6:00 p.m.
World Card Making Day Event

This event will benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charity.

  • Make as many cards as you like for $1.25 each.
  • The national RMHC will receive $2.00 from each stamp set purchase.
  • Our local RMHC in Columbus will receive $0.25 for each card made this day!

  • Our local RMHC in Columbus will receive $0.25 for each card made this day!


  • Special price on Simply Sent Sets this day (see pages 176 and 177 of catalog). They will be 20% off!! These would make GREAT Christmas presents AND you can help the families at the RMHC in Columbus.

  • I will donate $1.00 to the local RMHC for each Simply Sent Card ELEMENTS set sold this day.
  • Contest to raise additional money to benefit the RMHC will be held. Be sure to bring your loose change!
  • I am working on obtaining a list of items needed by the RMHC in Columbus and as soon as I have that information, I will let you know. I thought it would be nice to collect items if you wish to bring them in.
Thanks for stopping by.... and have a happy day!!
