MOJO Monday Challenge #315

Last night, I had the last in the series of Design 101 classes.  Two of my downline attended and did some really creative work.  I'm planning on showcasing their cards tomorrow.  The focus was on Embellishments this time.  While they worked away, (very quietly, I might add) I decided to work on the Mojo Monday sketch for the week.  I'm happy to say that I got it finished, in between running up and down the stairs to my Craft Cave to bring up bits of equipment or paper they needed for their designs. (And that did double duty as my workout for the day!)

Here's the sketch for the week:

  • The stamped image is from Lovely As A Tree.  I inked it up in Always Artichoke ink and then did a little tap dance on it with my Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write markers before I stamped it.  That technique is known as tap dancing or thumping.
  • I bet you're wondering how I got the scalloped rectangle behind the main image.  I used the largest Square Framelit which is the only one with scalloped edges.  I then moved the sides and top over a bit, matching the scallops with the framelit and cut it again so it would be smaller.  Finally, I cut it in half both lengthwise and width wise and overlapped the pieces, matching the scallops, until it fit. 
  • Do you recognize the Birch Paper Ribbon from the Thanksgiving Tablescape Simply Created Kit?  I told you it was versatile!
  • The sentiment is from Express Yourself, a hostess only set, and a great reason to host a crafting party this month.  Stampin' Up is throwing in an extra $25 in rewards for hostesses whose parties reach the $350 level in sales before taxes and shipping.  It's really not that hard to do and I'd love to help you get some extra Stampin' Up product!  Call me to book a party.  I don't have many dates left.

I also want to remind you that there are only 5 days left to take advantage of the lowest sign-up price ever!! If you join my team by Oct. 21, it will only cost you $25 to enjoy the 20% discounts for a full 6 months!  In that time, the Occasions Mini Catalogue comes out in January, and you'll get to see it and order from it a month before everyone else!  And your first order over $200 will net you a one time only 30% discount!! What a deal!  There's really nothing to lose!  In fact, you lose if you do not sign up, because you will be paying 20% more than you have to for 6 months!  Call me or click on Join My Team in the top menu bar and follow the prompts.

Don't forget about the weekly deals here.  I'll be letting you know about some more new products tomorrow.
