You're invited to a Stampin' Up! Card Buffet

Leanne's Stampin' Up! Card Buffet - Penetanguishene, Ontario
So, what exactly is a card buffet? Well, just like choosing what to eat at a food buffet, you get to choose what and how many cards you want to make at a card buffet! The minimum price is $25 for 8 cards. The price includes envelopes for each card you make, all PRE-CUT card stock, paper, embellishments PLUS the use of all my tools, stamps and inks required for each card.  Just bring your adhesives of choice (I will have some on hand if you need to purchase any.) Please, no ATG guns — there is not enough room at the tables.
The event runs for 3 HOURS ONLY per buffet and you can come and go as you please within the 3 hours. When you arrive, take a look at the card menu, decide which card you would like to make first and get started. You can make up to 4 of the same card or all different ones — it’s up to YOU! After you’ve made your 8 card minimum, you can stop there or make some more —each additional card you make is $2.75 each. Make as many cards as you would like during the time allocated (3 hours maximum).
Each month's card menu will offer 8 designs to choose from and there will be 16 of each design available to make at the event. Card designs will be rotated in and out on a monthly basis, so while some designs will “retire” after the event, others will be available again at the following event. So, if you didn’t get to make a card you wanted to make this time around, there will be another opportunity at the next event. Buffets will have a selection of: Birthday (feminine, masculine & child), Thank You, Anniversary, Congratulations, Get Well, Baby, Shower (baby & wedding), Sympathy, Wedding, and seasonal cards for Valentines, Mother's and Father's Day, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Join me for class! ... let's make a Mother's Day "A Loving Heart Mini Album"

a Loving Heart Mini Album Class for Mother's Day

I hope you'll join me for a class to create a beautiful keepsake for your mother, a bride, baby ... or just for you! This shabby chic 7.5" x 5.5" mini album consists of eight luscious pages (front/back chipboard covers plus 3 double-page spreads). Made with a full  Artisans Embellishment Kit and a half package of the More Amoré Design Series Paper  Lots of Pool Party and Primrose Petals cardstock, pearls, ribbon, punching, embossing, die cutting and stamping.


I've enjoyed every minute making my class sample. The Artisans Embellishment Kit is so trendy and vintage. The resin buttons are to die for!! Who wouldn't love the More Amore Designer Series Paper .. so sweet. Of course, I'm always a happy camper with a little Pool Party in front of me. I am so fond of it with Primrose Petals. sigh.


If you live in the Midland/Penetanguishene/Barrie, Ontario area, I hope you'll join me. If not, you can order a kit. Or I will make the album for you.

Happy crafting!
