Mix It Up Monday ~ A Gift From the Heart

I know that today is supposed to be a non-card day, but I wanted to share this special Gift from the Heart from some very special stamping ladies to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Tallahassee.

On Saturday, October 11th I held an event to go with World Card Making Day (which was actually October 4th), it was a Card Crazy Crafting Camp schedule from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Brew & Bean Coffee Company located at 1730 W. Pensacola Street, Tallahassee, Florida 32304.

Dave and DonnaI would first like to thank Dave and Donna, owners of Brew & Bean for allowing me to take over about half of the coffee shop for the CCCC.  Dave and Donna have also been very generous to let me take over a little corner of the shop at least once a month to hold other stamping event there.  I also extend my gratitude to Ryan and Joe (Dave and Donna's son and son-in-law) who work there, for putting up with me and my little social stamping group.  I truly thank you all from the bottom of my heart, for the space and for great cups of coffee.

Now on to the craziness.  I wanted to do some kind of a stamping event to honor World Card Making Day, Well, I came up with the idea to do a stamp-a-stack camp.  When I loaded up everything in the car that I wanted to take my stamping room looked a little on the bare side.

CCCC Table

Pictured here is the central table/area that had card stock, ink pads, stamp sets, punches, adhesive, ribbon, markers, etc.  

CCCC project There were individual tables set up to complete several different project. 

I did this a little different from the other SAS that I have held.  I had a sample that they could kind of go by, but they had to come up with some of the own creativity.  For most of my classes and stamping events I have most of the card stock cut, but not for this camp!  The cutters were around and had to be used.  They fussed at me a little (for about 2 seconds…LOL).CCCC Cutter

There was a $25 fee and no limit to the number of card that could be made.  The only stipulation was that every 5th card would go into the basket for the RMHC.  I guess I named this camp right!  It was a day of card crazy crafting.  Okay, if you read above we were supposed to end at 2:00 p.m…NOT…I think we finally wrapped thing up around 5:00 p.m.

Even though we run late, I am please to say that the RMHC basket received 24 cards.  Would you like to see them all?  Here they are!
