Paper Cupcakes Yuletide Bash Dec. 6

Ok Cupcakes...we are good to go for our Dec. 6th holiday meeting~ 6:30-9:30 At our usual place $3 per person for tip collection. Please support the FREE room by having dinner with us.
I need 20 RSVP's!
Optional Card Swap Theme...Valentines card swap with La Belle Vie
I just realized that the La Belle Vie papers are not carrying over to the next catalog...and that is the paper pack I chose for the Dec. swap...if you have already made your cards (Patty) then that is fine but if you have not, I would suggest using any of these current papers with a Valentine twist...
Avonlea, Clementine, Dakota, and Scholastic papers are due to carry over to the Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Book.
Bring your basic tool kit for a project.
Optional gift swap~ Bring a wrapped present~paper crafting related~$20 value with a handmade gift tag. (The tag will be entered in a contest)

Christmas Countdown Calendar from Cookie Sheet!

Sharing my latest work of heART using the November Stamp of the Month. Cookie sheet ($1 plus spray paint .25) and matchboxes ($2.50) from dollar tree. Magnets from Walmart ($3). Embellishments could add up but I had all this and not all of it is CTMH...jingle bells, tiny ornaments, lace and ribbon, snowflake and heart brads. Buttons, bottle caps run through my big shot, discontinued font for the word Christmas. Old and new papers. I wanted the vintage look but you could do your own version of what you have. Many hours of prep time. I pre-stamped everything. Bling, tinsel, tiny key, tiny safety pin, yadda yadda...Use score tape for the seam on the matchbooks. Use liquid glass, glue gun or I prefer Beacons 3 in 1 glue for adhering the magnets. Use Bonding memories for the papers on the backing. (Only paint the sides not the center of the cookie sheet) Medallion behind the flower on the 25 box. Hope you likey!
