WHAT:

A jam packed three day weekend of new videos, challenges, prizes and camaraderie with stampers from around the world. Much like our popular Make It Monday series, each designer will be presenting a video and an InLinkz list will be included in the new post for you to share your project using a similar technique. The InLinkz lists will all be open until 7am ET, August 31st so you will have a few days to photograph and upload any entires! There will prizes provided to participants and comments, so be sure to stop by even if you are just an "observer"!

    Looking forward to the festivities!

    However, I am a little disappointed that the supply list wasn’t shared earlier. Not everyone lives near a Michael’s or Hobby Lobby etc. and is able to pick up all the things easily that they don’t already own. Working full time and living an hour away from some of these stores will make it difficult to me to have everything I need from the list in time. I’ve already struck out today on bronze metallic card stock, perfect pearls (of any color), brown rhinestones, paper clay, and silver gilding flakes at Hobby Lobby in the town where I work.

    I’m going to try though…

    The list of all the stuff in addition to basic stamping supplies is daunting. I’m lucky to have a card-making pal who loves to shop and is an Amazon Prime member. Otherwise I don’t think I could do it. looking forward to a card-making marathon!
