Alpha Beta Card Sorority gals crafty night out :p





Last night was our gals crafty night out, it was Val's turn and my turn to teach a class...sadly mine was a quick and easy and painless to do. I think it actually worked out because Val's project for us, was long :)!

Before we did our project with Val, she talked about the color wheel and how certain color's look really good together. How the color wheel works, that sort of thing but the BEST part of this project would have to be the fact that we got to use chalks to color in this stamped image. It is something I haven't done to this extent, but I have used chalks before but wasn't truly happy with how my projects turned out.







However, Val changed my mind about chalks last night and I am glad she did :D! Thanks Val :D
! Gorgeous project right??Head on over to her blog and check out what other amazing projects she has done, leave a little lovin' there too ;)!




I did do my project first, but had to wait for the pics to upload...so I decided to talk about Val's project first :p. I found this neat template online (can't remember where I got this one from, sorry), and thought it would be great f
or putting treats in on a door knob or you could let it hang on a wine bottle with treats in it too.











Here is theother angle of my project, so you can get a better idea of what it looks like :)!
Then once we finished our projects, cleaned up a bit and put our crafty stuff away we had AMAZING treats to eat provided by Yvonne and Julie. Yvonne made the BEST EVER oat cakes, and Julie made the most AMAZING pumpkin muffins with chocolate frosting in and on top of them. Thanks gals for the treats :)!








We also did our monthly card swap, this months card theme was to make a Christmas card. Forgot to take a picture of mine, but here is the card that I got from Kim...GORGEOUS card :).






Here is another angle of Kim's card, to give you a better idea of what this card looks like :)!

Hi Catherine
Thought I would pop over and try to answer your question.BTW you have a lovely blog.Now I don't know if there is an easier way of doing labels but this is how I did it.On your google dashboard you will have edit posts,click on that.If you look to the left hand side you will have all the labels already listed,these are what you have already named your posts as.You will need to edit each post,when you click on edit post you will notice that the bottom of your post has a label name,this is what you change.You must make sure that you have labelled them with the same name for this to work.eg if you have made 12 Whiff of Joy cards label them all Whiff of Joy,the left hand side should then show Whiff of Joy (12).Make sure you publish the post each time you label a post.This may take you a while,as I noticed you have more posts than me.Just take it slowly and be careful not to click on the wrong thing you could do something to your blog.I hope this helps and makes some kind of sense,I am happy to answer anymore questions you may have.
Have a good day.
xx

question about the chalk project... Do you have to put some sort of finish over it after to keep the chalk from smudging and if so what?

Love your project too. Great for both purposes you mentioned.
