Happy World Cardmaking Day!

Today is a holiday for all papercrafters.  World Cardmaking Day!  A day designated as a kick in the hiney for all holiday cardmaking, and an opportunity to get together with friends and spend your weekend getting your hands dirty.

Check out the World Cardmaking Day website for challenges and fun.

Check out Scrapbook and Cards Today!!!!  There you will find sketches, supplies, and instructions for 12 cards for each month of the year.  I was assigned September:

Crate Paper's Restoration line here with some Cosmo Cricket birdies.  So cute! 

Also Check out Studio Calico's celebration of this day.  There are challenges, a sketch, and opportunities for prizes there too.

While you are there, be sure to check out the main kit if you haven't purchased it yet.  There has been a lot of interest in the main kit stamp, the polaroid, but policies have changed and Studio Calico will not be placing any future orders on stamps.  There are only a few available to be added to the shop in December, so if this is the stamp for you, your best bet is to get the main kit (which is gorgeous, by the way).   In addition to that stamp, I'm a huge fan of those Maya Road windows.  There are so many things you can do with them!  I used them as a window, and as a random shape for my layout. 

This weekend I'm making a card or tow, and I'm thinking Christmas.  I have Christmas projects for SCT due soon, but I really really want to get a handle on a December Daily this year.  I have all the product picked out.  I just need to decide on an album and get it ready.  I've learned from previous experience that if I'm expected to make it as I go along, I will never get it finished.  December is too busy for that.

Have a great day!  Davinie
