I hope those that were at yesterday’s crop are now “fully recovered”!
It was a great day, and although we had a small crowd, it was fun to relax and craft! We raised $29.83 for Relay for Life (which I upped to $60) with sales and a tiny bit left over from crop fees. Although not much, every little bit helps! If you’d like to learn more about the team we donated to, you can do so here: http://convio.cancer.ca/site/TR?px=5228772&pg=personal&fr_id=20279&s_src=boundlessfundraising&s_subsrc=%3Asub_source (as a side note, Lindsay is the person that introduced me to Stampin’ Up!, and is also the person that spent countless hours helping me find the perfect location for the crops we organize through Crop Kingston–if you feel like helping her team on their quest to raise funds for cancer, please donate at the above link).
Now for the part that you’ve all been waiting for–the make & takes! The grab bags this month included the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Pack. At each crop, we do four make & takes using the paper pack included in the grab bags.
This card was designed by my downline, Amanda Farlinger (From Where I Stamp). This background paper is one that can easily stump people, but it looks great here! She also used the Sprinkles of Life Stampset (right now, Sprinkles of Life is the Ronald McDonald Charities Stamp and money from the purchase of each stampset is donated to Ronald McDonald House, but only until May 31st! So pick it up here: http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=139971
This Project Life page is also by Amanda. She used the Sprinkles of Life Stampset again, along with Endless Wishes. We actually had a quick talk this weekend about unused paper packs. Have you ever considered precutting them in 4×6, 3×4, and 4×4 for Project Life? They’re fantastic for when you need a punch of colour, but don’t want any words or as a background to other images like she has done here!
This cute and simple packaging idea was from myself. I love the curvy keepsake boxes for easy packaging ideas! I will be back later this week with a quick explanation on how to get the two tone designs on these!
And our last make & take, this scrapbook page that I did. I will be back with more details on it as well this week.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this very quick recap. You can join us for our next crops this fall: September 17th, October 15th, and November 19th!
