Thanks & Giving and other things I love about Fall

Even a summer girl like me love certain things about fall: the crispness of the fall air, the stores filling up with holiday inspiration and family gathering together to name a few. Fall is a also great time to whip out those scrapbooks and share them with loved ones. I’m excited to share this month’s stamp of the month collection because October is such a special month. 

October’s stamp of the month represents everything I love about fall! Packed with heartwarming style, you’ll find little houses with smoke emerging the chimney, fall leaves, hearts, and cozy calligraphy with phrases such as “thanks & giving” “gather” and “home sweet home” just to name a few. 

Imagine scrapbooking your photos from the fall season: family gatherings, fall decor around your home, the foliage in your yard, cooking comfort food in the kitchen. All of these photos will mesh perfectly with these stamps. You could create so many love filled pages to remember. 

The stamp set also works well for fall and thank you cards. Check out these projects from the talented artists at Close To My Heart for some inspiration to help get you started!

If you’re ready to make your purchase- remember that right now you can get this exclusive October Stamp of the Month collection for the discounted price of only $5 with any $50 order. Or you can always order just the stamp of the month for the standard price of $18.95. No need to rush around to different stores to find what you need- you’ll have everything you need to create such fun and memorable keepsakes- delivered right to your door.

Please let me know if you have any questions or wish to share any ideas. This is such a beautiful and inspiring month. I truly hope you enjoy using these stamps in your creative endeavors. Have a fantastic fall everyone! :)

Fall Events: Come get creative with me!

The are is turning cooler and soon the leaves will change color. What does that mean for a crafter? Time to slip into something warm and comfy and start on a new project! If you are in the Arnold/St. Louis area, I have several events scheduled scheduled to help you carve out some fun creative time.

See a complete list of events with times, prices and other details>>


In November, I'll be having my regular "Finish It Friday" 5 hour crop plus a Saturday Day Crop back to back. This means you can start your projects on Friday and leave everything set up so when you arrive on Saturday morning everything is ready to pick back up! On Saturday I'll be serving lunch plus have drinks and snacks on hand.


Want to sent handmade cards this year? Come to one or both of my All You Can Make Card Buffet (Christmas Edition) for a productive night of card-making. On the buffet, you will find a variety of card kits. The papers are pre-cut and accessories are gathered so you can stamp and assemble your cards relatively quickly. Make a variety or multiples of the same one. It's up to you!


Our BINGO night in September was so much fun, I've decided to host another Girl's Night out in January. I'm still working on the details, but know that it will be a night filled with fun using brand new 2019 Seasonal Expression 1 products.

You'll get a copy of the new Idea Book, a goody bag with product samples and 3 projects to create! At the event, you can enjoy a yummy snack, play games and win prizes. In addition, you'll get exclusive (attendee only) specials and all orders will go toward a Mystery Hostess Gathering. You don't want to miss this fun night!

You can sign up for all of these events at https://www.showmescrapping.com/events/. See you there!
