Yesterday's "Die to Play" play day at Art 'n Soul was loads of fun. It was amazing to see all of the various dies folks had in their stash and to see what they were doing with them! As a crazy add-on to the day, I offered two die sets from Lifestyle Crafts as a prize to anyone who showed up to play. The names drawn were Laurie Gaudette and Lori Lein . . . congratulations to you both and thanks so much for participating in our play day.

We hope that you'll reserve the 3rd Friday of October for our next play day. Stay tuned for the suggested theme to the day.

Don't forget . . . today (Sunday) is the Hero Arts' Make 'n Take demo at Art 'n Soul!

From the Memory Box blog come these beautiful cards:

Fresh Foliage for Fall...

by Pam Sparks for Memory Box
"Pam here...having fun with Fall colors! I stamped the Memory Box Gingham Heart on a Memory Box Fresh Foliage die cut from Memory Box Kraft card-stock.  I die cut the new from Poppystamps Trulani Wreath from Kraft, Jack O Lantern and Crimson and pieced them together and layered it on Lagoon. I cut the new Poppystamps Berry Sprig from Dill.
by Pam Sparks for Memory Box
The sentiment is from Memory Box, Wishing You Combo stamp.  I added some gems on the berry sprig.   I added the hemp because I used a Lagoon notecard and it covered the fold marks then.  I edged the Lagoon layer with Distress Broken China ink and the ink blending tool.
The card is 5 1/2 inches square.

Happy Saturday to you!  Thanks for looking and hope you're inspired to create as you scroll through the blog!"

A bright birthday card

"Hello all, after a nice vacation I had some time ago I would like to share with you this card. It's autumn now and often raining outside so let this card make weather warmer, mood better and life brighter!))
Besides the white-and-red red flowers are handmade and you can easily make them if you'd love to.

These are the materials I used to create the card:


It's the last day of the Washington State Fair, aka Do The Puyallup! My husband and I walked the fairgrounds last week on a beautiful sunny afternoon. My only "must" see was the Pig Palace, my annual favorite. They have a brand new 'home'. One litter had been born on September 11 and the other litter had been born two days before on September 17. Both moms are 1-1/2 years old and weigh in at 600 pounds.

This is the litter of 13 that was only 2 days old; they had
not opened their eyes yet. I love the way they line up to sleep.
Momma is below, getting some well deserved rest!

This is the litter of 11 that had been born on September 11. They
were so cute. When I arrived, momma had been in the adjoining area
getting rinsed off and when I came back to the pen, she had rejoined
her piglets for some shut-eye.

Check out the updated class schedule; just click on the 'class schedule' tab at the top of the posting. In particular, Karen Block has scheduled a class to make a beautiful beaded bracelet; experience is not required so we encourage all of you to sign up. If the bracelet isn't for you, it will make a wonderful gift! Check it out . . . the sample bracelet is at the store.

We're having lots of creative days at Art 'n Soul . . . we'd love to share them with you!
