October 2018 Meeting

For our October meeting, our members Marilyn, Melanie and Diane showed us how to use stamps, paper cutters, punches, and various other scrapbooking tools to make our own gift tags. Some of the tags also used scrap fabric for decorations.

After our meeting business, we got down to show and tell! First up was participants from Ron's Attic Windows class that was held on Sept 22nd.

Debbie's Cardinals.

Kathy's barn

Linda's wolves

Paula's horses

(Andrea worked on Ron's sample after the class was over. :D )

The rest of show and tell was beautiful!
