Rubba Sista Fall Festival!

We are sooo excited.. The Rubba Sista Fall Festival is only nine days away.....It's being held this year October 9th once again at the Church of God in Oceanside. It's our annual Fall event. There are seven Rubba Sistas this year who are hosting and we have almost 50 people in attendance signed up and ready to come stamp the day away with us! We're breaking numbers this year!! Yippeee....

Over the years we've done it different ways. This year we are having ten Stamp-a-Stack stations; cards already designed and prepared for customers to stamp and assemble. Of course we're focusing on Fall theme...and that includes Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas plus a few miscellaneous. I think this year we've really come up with some great cards our customers will love. Plus we're using some new accessories and techniques from Stampin' Up! on each card.

We're also creating five different Make n'Takes that are just precious. I can't wait to show them to you... sorry no sneak peaks... so you'll have to wait until after the event to see.... or better yet.. just sign up to come and make your own!! I'll give you one hint.... it does include Chocolate!

One of our highlights... ok maybe it's just my highlight... is having The Taco Man cater the lunch for us... that's not his real name.. but that's just what we've come to call him. They put on this incredible spread of Mexican food, complete with variety of salsas and famous Mexican drinks. We add to the menu by bringing in some awesome desserts from Costco... cheesecakes, pies, cookies.. you get the idea!

Here's a few pictures from our Spring Fling two years ago... just to give you an idea of all the incredible projects and cards we display and create for our customers....  I tell ya, you're gonna wanna come!

Card Display Boards

At this Spring Fling we had a Shoebox Swap and Card Contest... each customer designed a card at home featuring Spring and the Stampin' Up products and brought in ten packets of their card, ready to be stamped and assembled (everything had to fit into a shoebox to transport thus the name Shoebox Swap). Then they got to go home with ten different cards they had stamped that day designed by their fellow stampers...

All cards were entered in the Card Contest..
Here's just a few... each one is numbered on a display board
and then all the customers vote for the winners!

Could you tell the Top Note Sizzix die cut was a new feature item that year from Stampin Up????

Here's some of our awesome Rubba Sistas... teaching what we love!
