World Cardmaking Day is October 7th! I will be hosting a cardmaking event in Johnston, RI on that day, and I would LOVE for you to join me! Please contact me for the address and directions, and I will get them to you ASAP. I also have some suggestions for those who may not be able to attend, or are out of state. Please see below for all the details!
Local Event Details
For my local friends, I will be hosting an event on October 7th from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm in Johnston, RI. This will be a very laid back, casual, drop in event! I will have ten different cards for you to choose from, and all cards will be $3 each. It will be an a la carte event: simply stop in, stay as long as you want, and make as many cards as you wish! There is no upfront fee…just pay for the cards you make, whether you make one or all ten! ALL supplies, including envelopes, are included, so no need to bring anything but yourselves! I will have a variety of cards available including everyday occasions, as well as some Holiday ones. (If you are planning to attend, and have any special requests, let me know, and I will see what I can put together for you!) There will also be refreshments, fun, and lots of laughs! Please RSVP by October 1st if you plan to attend so I know how many to plan for. And please feel free to invite friends!
Suggestions for Those Who Cannot Attend in Person
If you are too far away from RI, or are local, but are unable to attend on the 7th, here are a few options to consider if you would like to make some cards on your own:
Oh Happy Day Card Kit:
Here’s a bright, fun, all occasion option for those who can’t make it on the 7th! The Oh Happy Day Card Kit makes 20 All Occasion cards, and includes everything you need to make them (except scissors and adhesive). It includes the stamps, ink, and a block for the stamps, so even if you are new to stamping, you are still good to go! Full color instructions are included. This kit sells for $35 in my online store. (That works out to only $1.75 per card!) For more details, or to order this kit, please click here.
Soft Sayings Card Kit:
Another kit option includes the Soft Sayings Card Kit. This kit also makes 20 All Occasion cards. With this kit, you get to make two each of ten different cards! Again, it includes everything you need (except scissors and adhesive). Full color instructions included. This kit also sells for $35, and can be found in my online store. Please click here to view all the details regarding this kit, or to order!
Watercolor Christmas Project Kit:
Want to get started on your Christmas cards instead? This kit makes 20 cards, 5 each of the 4 designs shown here. However, this kit does not include stamps. The Watercolor Christmas stamp set needs to be purchased separately in order to complete the cards as shown. The total for both is $38 (if you order the clear mount stamp set.) The stamp set is $18 and the kit is $20. Anyone who chooses this option and purchases this kit and stamp set, will receive a clear block and Basic Black mini ink pad from me separately! That way you will have everything you need (again, except adhesive and scissors) to complete these cards, without having to spend too much extra! For information on the Watercolor Christmas Project kit, please click here. For information on the coordinating stamp set, please click here.
I will also have these kits available at my local event on October 7th for anyone who wants to check them out!
A side note on kits: If you are considering ordering one of the kits shown above, why not invite a friend or two over, split the cost, and have your own mini event? Just an idea! 🙂
I hope you will all consider joining me, whether in person or on your own for World Cardmaking Day! I will post some reminders here and on my Facebook page as we get closer, as well as in my October newsletter, which will go out in a couple of weeks!

In the meantime, if you have any questions or need anything, please don’t hesitate to ask!
Here are the kits once more, as well as some additional suggested products to complete them:
