As always, I will supply everything you need!  
Just bring an apron (optional) and a treat to share (also optional)

For you out-of-towners!!!
I am willing to ship, but this time I am limiting my orders to vinyl only
(All the wood can be purchased at Home Depot and they can cut if for you)

Inspiration

A friend of mine (she works with my hubby) Donna Call made these adorable pumpkins with her daughters- I just had to show them off since they turned out wayyyyyy cuter than mine did!  I want everyone else to see another inspirational idea to copy- thanks Donna!


LOVE THEM!!!

For those of you waiting on your mail orders- I am shipping them out today! (monday oct 3rd) so sorry for the delay and thanks for your patience- this one became way bigger than my capabilities :)

My deepest apologies to everyone who hasn't gotten the word yet

Craft Night is Moved to September 28th!

Sorry- I got about triple the orders I expected so I had to push it out.

Making your own pumpkins

I forgot to add this part to the last post

K- for those of you doing these on your own...


Go to Home Depot and buy a 4x4 (it will be 8 feet long)
It will be enough for two pumpkin sets (so 6 pumpkins total)

If you don't have your own saw- then have the nice people at Home Depot 
cut the 4x4 at these lengths:
13 1/2"
15 1/2" 
and
18 1/2"
That will be exactly half a 4x4.  
Hope this helps!
Also- the stems are just tree branches cut 2-3" long

To see how to distress the wood (all those grooves) see the video in the
previous post.

How to distress your pumpkin blocks and attach stems

Ok- for some reason the recording we made of this turned sideways and we couldn't get it to turn- 
so cock your head and you'll get the point! :)
video

Also- to attach the stems:

Nail in a small 1 1/2" - 2" finishing nail into the center of the top of your pumpkin
Only about half way

Pull nail back out

Now- turn nail upside down (head first) and hammer back into hole you just made

Now you have a tack of sorts to attach your stem

I put a glob of liquid nails on mine to help secure- but you could use hot glue or wood glue as well

center stem on nail and hammer down carefully

You are done!

Craft Kits

For those of you wanting kits mailed...

I need an email address to contact you! 
:)

 I've had several of you say you want kits and want to know what to do next- but I have no way of contacting you.  Hopefully you will see this so you don't get forgotten :)

Fall Craft Night!!!

Today- September 1st is the absolute LAST DAY
to sing up!  Sorry!  I just have a ton of orders and
need to draw the line somewhere :)


If ordering:
 PLEASE DO SO BY LEAVING A COMMENT ON THIS POST!
It's about the only way I can keep track of all the orders- Thanks! :)

Wow- I feel like I need to dust off the cobwebs on my blog!  It's been awhile- but boy have I enjoyed my summer with my three kids :)  I am a mom first- and I don't want regrets later :)

When:  
September 14th (Wednesday) 6:00 pm- midnight
(but you don't have to stay till midnight- it's just how long we can stay)

Where:
Herriman City office Building
 (13011 S Pioneer Street, Herriman)

What:
(the best part!) :)

PUMPKIN PATCH



These are tall!  The tallest is 19" and the smallest is about15"

Cost: $15
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

AUTUMN BLESSINGS

or w/o ribbon


Cost:  $10
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BOO




Each letter is 12" tall and 7-8" wide


There will not be paper options this time! 
 If you want a different paper than what I did, you will need to bring your own
(if you do want your own- please please indicate that on your order!)

Cost: $15
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Orders and money are due by Sept 1st
- but the earlier the better-
(these crafts have a lot of prep this time)

Everyone is welcome, I live in the south end of the Salt Lake County if you want to join us!

Email me at youcraftmeup@yahoo.com if you have questions

What your money pays for:  I do make a profit on these craft nights. This is what your money pays for (just in case you want to know) wood, blades (I go through a lot of these) sand paper (go through this like crazy too), scrapbook paper, mod podge, paint. paint brushes, table cloths, drop cloths, cups, wire, ribbons, ink pads, the rental for the room, and a few other misc things, and my TIME! :)

If you are interested in kits being mailed to you: 
PUMPKINS:   I can't mail the pumpkins, they are too large, but I can give you dimensions and
Home Depot will cut them for you, and I can mail you the stems, wire, ribbons, and sign.
AUTUMN:  Two choices here- you can get the wood yourself and I can mail vinyl,
or I can mail entire kit (but it only fits in the $10.95 flat rate)
BOO: This too only fits in the $10.95 box, but I do believe I can fit 2 per box- so if you find
a crafting buddy- you can split shipping.

I will not ship orders until I have received payment- sorry- learned that one the hard way :)

Email me if you have more questions!
youcraftmeup@yahoo.com


Can't wait- I LOVE FALL DECOR!!!

Patriotic Craft Night


Tuesday June 28th @ 7:00 pm till midnight
Herriman City office Building (13011 S Pioneer Street, Herriman)


If signing up- PLEASE leave a comment on this post- it's hard for me to track the orders when some are on FB- texts, blog, or just in passing.  Thanks!!!


A little late in the game, I know...but I figured it will still be before the fourth, and since here in Utah we celebrate the 24th as well- we leave our patriotic stuff up all month! 
 (and if you're like me, I leave mine up till Labor Day)
As of now I am thinking the last week in June, so either the 28th,29th, or 30th
I need to check with Herriman City and see if I can reserve the room any of those dates

Wood Block Flag
Cost:  $9



about 9" tall and 14" long


USA letters
Cost: $11

about 11" high and 8" wide (each letter)
I made mine 5 years ago, so the paper now is way cuter than what is on mine!


LIBERTY or FREEDOM blocks
Cost: $9
(PLEASE specify which one you want, or if you want it double sided!)


These can be double sided- if you want them double sided the 
cost is $12 (for the extra vinyl and paper)

I will need all orders in by Thursday, June 23

Also, this time I am asking that I receive payment BEFORE craft night 

Everyone is welcome, I live in the south end of the Salt Lake County if you want to join us!

Email me at youcraftmeup@yahoo.com if you have questions

What your money pays for:  I do make a profit on these craft nights.

Giveaway #5!

I have been waiting all week for this final giveaway!

Many of you know, I have a cricut, and absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
The main reason why I LOVE my cricut, is thanks to my software

Sure Cuts A Lot is a computer software program that allows you to use
any font you can download (or that's already on your computer) on your cricut- or silhouette.
Seriously!  NO MORE CARTRIDGES!!!!
That also means any dingbats, or other images you can download (literally thousands! and they're free!)
- it is so fast and easy- I never use my cartridges anymore- I just plug my cricut into my computer
 with my printer cable and select "CUT" and walla!  I save a lot of vinyl and paper this way too.

Enough of my ramblings that you don't want to read anyway :)  For my final giveaway


Sure Cuts A Lot 3 software!!!  

(this is for the Silhouette SD, Pazzles,  E-Craft, Gazelle, Black Cat (Lynx or Cougar) or U.S. Cutter)
This version DOES NOT work with Cricuts

I am so excited about this, because I know how much I love mine- and I know you will love it too!

For those of you interested in the version that works with your cricut (sure cuts a lot 2) go HERE
There is a limited number left and once they are sold- they will be gone!  
So don't delay getting it- you won't regret it!

To Enter this contest, LEAVE A COMMENT and you must be a follower
the winner will need to display the ScrappingTable.com logo on their blog for 30 days
(I am proud to display it- I LOVE it that much!!!!)

Giveaway #4!

***You still have till tomorrow (Friday at noon) to enter the giveaway for one of 
my very own personal creations!  Go HERE to enter that giveaway***


One of my other really popular posts is my DIY Glitter Toes.

So for this giveaway, I am going to send the winner
A full set of glitter and some gel topcoat!
(I know I know, not as exciting as the others, but I had one fall through)



To enter you must leave a comment and be a follower
Winner will be selected Friday at noon!

And stay tuned for tomorrow's giveaway!  I've been saving the best for last!

Good luck!


Many of you have asked if there is an easy way to remove glitter toes- there is!!!
I actually discovered this by accident- I found if you soak in a hot bath for about 10 minutes- you can literally just peel them off!  There will still be a little residue left- but nothing you can't remove with just a little nail polish remover.  This is so much easier than trying to file and scrape them off!
Hope this helps!

And the winner is...

I'm totally imagining the sound of drum roll here! 
:)
Comment #19!
Who?
Go ahead and count to see if it's you
Just kidding!

The winner of the Kitchen Aid vinyl is...
Lauren from Lauren and Eddie!
Congrats!
