World Card Making Day is almost here. Did you know that this is an International event that falls every year on the first Saturday in October. Thousands of women spend this day getting together with friends and colleagues and having fun paper crafting.

'd like to know:

  • Do you celebrate World Card Making Day? 
  • How do you celebrate?  Do you get together with friends to stamp and have fun? 
  • Do you participate in events at your local paper craft stores?
  • Do you mail out greeting cards especially for that day?   
I will be stamping with a friend on Saturday and I'll be posting my cards on Sunday.  Because it's the Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend I will be using the themes "Giving Thanks" and "Gratitude" for my cards. I hope you'll drop by to see what we made, and leave me a comment or two.  I'd love to hear how you are celebrating the day or even just Thanksgiving. 

Stampin' Up! is helping paper crafters to celebrate this big day by holding a week long "Grab a Friend and Create" opportunity. They have released a line of select products that will be available from October 1-7-2018 at 10% off.

I've been on a Self-Imposed Hiatus and Now It's Time for a Reboot............

You may have noticed that I've been out of the blog loop for a few months now, and wondering why I'm no longer participating in challenges or posting as consistently as I was.  The truth is during the Spring I began rethinking where I am in life and what I personally want to do. 

I realized that while I'm enthusiastic and passionate about stamping and creating, I'm also passionate about my family and friends and how I spend my time with them. Let's face it, it's not easy to golf when your mind is working on a project deadline.  So, I made some tough choices and re-evaluated how I want to spend my time.  

My first step towards change, was saying farewell to the Watercooler Wednesday and Creative Circle Design Teams, I'd participated on for the past two years. While I always tried to meet the team challenges with gusto and make each project special and appealing for my followers and the design team, my over zealousness in completing my assignments and balancing other parts of my life totally drained my time and energy.  

I had an awesome journey designing with these groups, expanded my paper crafting skills and meeting many new and wonderful friends along the way.  Hopefully through my blog and my projects I succeeded in sharing these adventures and growth with you.

So what's next?   Is this the end of Penny Tokens Stampin' Spot Blog?  Definitely not.  It's still my stamping forum and will continue but its currently under construction.

So please hang in there and don't give up on me while I go through this metamorphosis.  And, thanks in advance for your patience, encouragement and support.  As always....

Happy Stamping!

Guess Who's Going to OnStage Orlando November 2018

Can you see my happy feet dancing?  Well they are  and the reason is clear..........I'm registered to go to Stampin' Up!s 30th Anniversary OnStage Live Event in Orlando Florida this November!  Whoo Hoo!  And, to make it all the more wonderful I'm going with some of my awesome downline and fellow stampers from the Fraser Valley area!  I can't wait. 

For me one of the most exciting parts of registration for an event like this is being able to volunteer my time and services while I'm there.  Stampin' Up! offers lots of opportunities for this from Prize Patrol, Make N' Take Volunteers, Demonstrating on OnStage Live and Display Board Presenters.

I'm up for all of that but I'm choosing to volunteer as a Display Board Presenter and to qualify I have to share the following items I've created:

  • 3 cards, 
  • two 3-D items 
  • 1 scrapbook page

Abstract Impressions is one of my favourite sets in the Annual Catalogue this season.  What better way to show it off than with the brand new Incolours and Incolour Designer Papers.  I've also paired it with the Eastern Medallions and Stitch Shapes Die Cuts.
I'm also a huge fan of the Painted Harvest stamp set and have made many cards with it this year.  I was so happy to see this set return in the Annual Catalogue.  This was one of my favourite cards, featuring the Gorgeous Grape and Rich Razzleberry Inks.  

I love versatility and this fun hostess set Hand Delivered from the Annual Catalogue has really been fun to create with.  Here I've paired it with the Tranquil Textures designer series paper and Mint Macaroon card stock to create a calm soothing get well card.   
3-D Items:

I love making 3-Dimensional items and this year one of my proudest accomplishments were my mantle scapes.  Here are some pictures of my Fall one which features the Jar of Love Stamp set and Every Day Jar Framelit dies  and the Seasonal Layers Thinlet Dies and Colourful Seasons Stamp Set.  

This accordion fold center piece measures 18" long and folds up into a small package that is held together when closed with a belly band that is also decorated.  My customers have asked me to do a class on this Thanksgiving Mantle Scape and also a Christmas theme one using some sets from the new Holiday Catalogue. If you would like more information on how this Fall Mantlescape was made click on this link:   

My Second 3-D Item is:

This is part of my colour display that I worked on for the Color Revamp this season.  Each panel represents a core colour family - Brights, Regals, and Subtles.  

Scrapbook Page:

This scrapbook page is a combination of the Under the Mistletoe designer paper in the Annual Catalogue and the Blended Seasons Stamp and Stitched Seasons Dies that are on special during the month of August 2018.  

Happy Stamping!
