TECH SQUAD - October 10

I can't believe that it is almost time again for TECH SQUAD - what a busy month of September I had! Seems like I spent every day paper crafting! (life IS good!) Our projects for October 10 meeting are called "kissing" techniques - all will concern unusual ways of applying ink to paper! We will again do 5 sample cards, plus one completed project! October is absolutely STUFFED with specials that you will want to take advantage of - see previous posts from today! I hope we can take full advantage of them during the month of October. TECH SQUAD will follow the same schedule as the previous two months with meetings at 9:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Don't forget to RSVP by Monday, October 8, so that I can be prepared for you! (If you think I already know you are coming, e-mail or call me anyway so I don't miss out on prepping for you!) Don't forget to bring your traveling box so we can add more cards to it!

How I spent my Saturday ...

I can't think of a better way to spend a day than paper-crafting with friends. And that is just what I did yesterday with a group of Angel friends at my manager, Paula Kay's house. There were 9 talented Angel demonstrators there, each completing (well almost completing!) 10 wonderful projects that had been planned by each of us for the Fall/Winter holiday season! One of our Angel friends was unable to attend due to illness, but she sent her project along, so we helped her out by completing what needed to be done to our own project so that she could do it at home later! What a day - we talked, we ate, but most of all we were inspired by the talent in each other! Personally, I know I learned lots of new things that I will be implementing in my own projects in the future, so my customers can look forward to that. There will be a display at my next TECH SQUAD meeting on October 10 of all these wonderful projects that we did! (Of course, there are a couple that need some finishing touches!) Can't wait to show you all the great stuff we did!

Another October Special

During the month of October, the angel company has gone CRAZY FOR COLOR with our new special on the Kaleidoscope kit! The kit includes our exclusive paper collections, Kaleidoscope Brites (Value $19.95), Kaleidoscope Girlz (Value $6.95) Kaleidoscope Boyz (Value $6.95) and a new Kaleidoscope words stamp set. TAC values the whole package at $44.00, but it can be yours to work COLOR MAGIC for only $35.95 only during the month of October 2007. If there is a kid in your life, or you're just a "kid at heart" this is a great kit for you! (The papers alone cost $33.85) What a great buy and a cool way to put COLOR in your life!

And the SPECIALS keep coming!

Beginning Sept 24 (I know that was last week) The Angel Company has a SPECIAL price on four of their Designer Collection paper pads. These are 8 x 8 pads, 36 sheets in 6 colors with the same 6 designs in each color. The pads are priced at 50% off their normal low price - they are now $3.50 (which turns out less than $0.10 per sheet). The collections on Special are
V-904 Fingerpaint
V-905 Country Cottage
V-906 Metropolis
V-907 Lap of Luxury
Check them out on page 36 of your catalogue. There is a sample of all 6 designs at the top of the page!

Another October special!

Here's a great bonus to the October "hostess" list - all hostess awards are doubled during the month of October! That means our "mystery hostesses" will receive more prizes! As always, you must make a $20 purchase to be eligible for "mystery hostess" status, but there will be MORE WINNERS! We should have two Level A winners, two Level B winners, and two half price items. (with a $200 combined order - which we usually do easily!) There, of course, will also be a "poki's choice" stamp set! Also, remember, with a $30 purchase you are eligible for a Gift With Purchase Stamp - these will also be doubled during October! All in all, October is a great month to REWARD YOURSELF! Don't forget to RSVP for TECH SQUAD meeting on October 10!

October is almost here!

It is hard to believe that September has passed us by, and we are abouit to embark on October! (tomorrow!) The Angel Company has a great plan for us during October. The FALL SUPPLEMENT has some great new stamp sets for Fall and the holidays. You can see the stamp sets, with some great samples, by visiting the webpage There is a list of links on the left, click on PROMOTIONS and then Fall Supplement, and go see some great new stamps! poki found 3 sets that she immediately put on her October order!

Class - Oct 12, 5:30 p.m. Wendaful Scrapbooks in Temple

I know many of you have seen this Fall Banner in progress. I added some beads to the bottom to give it a little "weight" to hold it in place, and it is now ready to be delivered to Wendaful Scrapbooks in Temple where it will be a class project for Friday, October 12 at 5:30 p.m. Fee is $12. Call the store 254-899-2767 to sign up for the class! I purposefully left the back side uncovered until class day, so that participants can see what the back side looks like. Paper is decopaged to four square coasters. "F-A-L-L" letters are added to each coaster, along with a beautiful fall colored leaf and daisy! And it's all hung on some beautiful silk knitting ribbon! All that participants will provide for the project is redline tape or very strong adhesive to hold the cardstock back covers in place. Bring your scissors as well in order to "round the corners" of the paper after adhering it to the coaster. I haven't found any corner rounder with the same angle as the coaster, so we have to do it by hand
with scissors and then smooth the corners with emory board. I think it will make a neat home dec product for the Fall season (my favorite time of year - I really like October!)

I've unpacked - more info on CCHS Scrapbooking Event

I have been invited to be a vendor at a crop at Copperas Cove High School on Saturday, October 6. I have details for the event. If you are interested in getting tickets for the event, e-mail poki ( and I can send you the information about how to register for the event. (I have them - they are just still packed from my Retreat weekend!) The crop benefits Project Graduation for CCHS and the DramaDawgs (booster club)

HOTS Club Retreat was wonderful!

After may years of being totally immersed in the production of retreats for the Heart of Texas Scrapbook Club, it was great to be able to actually feel like a PARTICIPANT at this event! Of course, in my position as Historian, I had to take lots of photos of the event! But, other than photography, and helping Debra with the Art Show on Sunday morning, I was free to actually work on projects! I even took a class - first time ever - from a very talented designer from Austin. Her name is Jennifer Stewart. You may have come across her name in connection with Scrapbook Crossing in Round Rock (or is it Cedar Park?) or Crop, Paper, Scissors in Waco, as I know she teaches in both of those locations! I was pleased with the beautiful FALL photo display board we created, and have asked Mike to be sure we get a complete family portrait under the Chinese Tallow tree in Mom's yard at Thanksgiving time. (It actually should have some fall color - bright red - unless a windy November takes all the leaves away early!)
My digital scrapbooks got 20 or more new pages completed in them! I'm actually on Day 4 of the vacation (out of 14)

Be looking for me, or at least your products (since I arranged to drop a couple off at your place of work!)

Order is due today

UPS should be stopping at my house this afternoon! I will do my best to get orders delivered before I got to the Retreat on the weekend. (It isn't out of town, but I will be busy all week). If I don't get your order to you by Friday - or I don't see you at the HOTS Club event, please know that I will attempt to deliver as soon as I wake up on Monday (I'm usually pretty tired coming home after a HOTS Club event!)
Just a little hint - you are really going to like the OCTOBER Mystery Hostess drawing - something SPECIAL will be happening. Can't wait to see you at TECH Club on October 10. poki
