Here is a photo of my Halloween Display for CC in Lansing that past weekend. Special thanks to Nancy GelleMichelle LangefeldCaroline Luongo Morgan and Lisa Strahl Brown who were able to help me make things for the display and loan me display items. It definitely took a team to help me pull this one off. I will say, I got lots and lots of compliments on the display.

Be sure to make plans to stop by the Rubber Room for the Holiday Catalog pick up party on September 9th, 2016.  See all the details of the event HERE.  

I will have this display up, along with upcoming classes, a holiday display and so much more!  Plus it is FREE.  All you need to do is RSVP and come for the fun and creative displays!

BONUS!! The Rubber Room has a Paper Pumpkin Party on the last Thursday of each month, and it is FREE to attend. You just bring your Paper Pumpkin Kit with you, and your favorite adhesive; and I will have snacks and samples and lots of creative ideas to share with you while we all put our kits together.

Paper Pumpkin is the perfect way to get a quick creative "fix" every month without a large investment or huge inventory of stamps and paper and inks...  just a little box that contains an awesome project/cards.  You turn it into something wonderful that is hand made.  When you join us in the Rubber Room to put your kit together, you get the added benefit of spending time with friends each month!

Another card from our Demo play date. The creative and talented Nancy Gelle made this one for us! I love this embossing folder (from the new Holiday Catalog). You really should stop by the Rubber Room to see this one in person, because it has glitter on the top of the pine bough that you really can't appreciate from this photo.


The new Holiday Catalog goes live on September 1st, and it's time you got one of these beauties in your hot little hands. I think a party is the perfect way to not only get your catalog to you but also to share samples for upcoming Rubber Room classes with you; give you your Rubber Room calendar of events for September and October AND show off tons of samples made with items from the new Catalog. PLUS as an extra BONUS, I will give you a $5 off coupon to use if you place an order when you pick up your catalog. I will also have some refreshments for you to enjoy as your peruse your new catalog and oogle over samples.

Best of all, this is a FREE PARTY! Come on out and have some fun~~mark your calendar for Friday, September 9th from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. and RSVP so I can be sure to have enough catalogs and refreshments for everyone.

I always love a good Kit, and the Tin of Tags Kit is going to be one of my "go-to" kits this year.  It is quick, easy and fun to put together; and it is one of those items you are sure to use.  I am going to make this my "hostess" gift this holiday season.  I always struggle with what to give a hostess during the holiday season and somehow always end up with a homemade goody to eat or a bottle of wine.  I feel bad giving edible goodies, because I think everyone is trying to cut down on their sugar consumption; so I feel bad for tempting them.  And wine, well, let's just say there's nothing really "special" about it.  I know a beautiful tin filled with handmade gift tags will be something appreciated and used.  It is a win-win hostess gift!

Be sure to check out my Rubber Room Class schedule and make plans to put a few of these tins together for  yourself to use.


Here is another Holiday Catalog sneak peek for you.  I love this little kit.  It is quick and easy and makes such a cute little decoration for any table or desk...  you could give it even gift it to a co-worker.  Be sure to check my Rubber Room Class Schedule and join the fun as we make this kit come to life!

This is one of my favorite Christmas Cards. We won't be making it at this month's Christmas Club, though.

AND IT IS LAST CALL! I know it seems way too early to be thinking about Christmas Cards, but now is the time to get started. When you start in the summer, you can be done by November and be ready to really enjoy the holiday season when it rolls around. I hope you can join me in the Rubber Room Thursday, August 11th from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m . We will make 6 beautiful Christmas Cards (2 each of 3 different designs). Cost of the Class is $15 or FREE with a minimum $20 order the night of class. I will provide coffee, water and a light snack, as well as everything you need to make all 6 cards (including envelopes). All you need to do is RSVP by midnight, Thursday, August 4th and bring your favorite adhesive to class with you.
