I have my October Stampin' Class To-Go all ready for you and may I say....I LOVE IT! If you're asking, "What is a Class To-Go and how does it work?", here's the answer...
Every month, I choose a feature stamp set, then plan and prepare four projects and an easy-to-follow, step-by-step PDF showing how to make each project. To receive the Stampin' Class To-Go FREE, you only need to place an order through me which totals $50 (before tax and shipping)...that's it! You'll receive your order direct from Stampin' Up!, and a pretty package from me with all the pre-cut paper and ribbon supplies you'll need to make each project (I'll send the PDF file to you via e-mail). If your order totals $75 (before tax and shipping), you'll receive a FREE GIFT included in the class package I'll send you, and anytime your order is $150 (before tax and shipping) or more, you receive all Host Benefits from Stampin' Up! as well! Here's a few things to consider for your order...
This month I am featuring the Merry Cafe stamp set, a great one to add to your collection because it includes images suitable for multiple seasons and occasions, making it very versatile! If you don't already own it, put this first on your list...without it, you won't be able to create the projects as I've designed them.
This set is photopolymer, which means it is used with clear acrylic blocks and the images are see-through. I do love my wood blocks but boy-howdy do these make it easy to stamp images exactly where I want them! If you haven't used photopolymer stamps before, you'll need at least one clear block...for ease, I used multiple sizes for these projects, but you can get away with just one block if you're willing to do a lot switching. If you only want one block, Block D (#118485) will hold the largest image in this set.
These are the stamp pad colors I used for these projects. Again, if you don't have them, you will want to add them to your order if you want to stamp the projects just as I designed them. Dapper Denim is a very nice blue and Berry Burst (a new In-Color!) is a beautiful deep, rich pink.
Maybe you'd like to add Merry Cafe's sister set, Coffee Cafe? This is such a fun set, and you don't even have to like coffee to appreciate it! The best part is, this set is part of our World Card Making Day sales event and is 15% off until October 10! It is also available as a bundle this year, partnered with the Coffee Cups framelits. If you have a Big Shot die-cutting machine, it's always a good idea to purchase sets and coordinating framelits together...it makes cutting a breeze! (Just so you know, if you don't have these framelits, you WILL be able to complete the projects I'm featuring this month...you'll just need to hand-cut the cups and lids for each project. No biggy!)
And then there's one of my favorite Designer Series Papers this year, Coffee Break DSP. I didn't actually use this on any of my projects this month but it does coordinate with the sets and framelits and it is included in our other sales event this month, the Buy 3, Get 1 FREE DSP sale! (You can click here to read about both of these specials.)
A few other things you might consider...all used in this month's To-Go class (all the pieces you need for the projects are provided...but you might love them and want them for your very own. The Wood Grain DSP is another item available in the Buy 3, Get 1 FREE DSP sale!) The Cable Knit and Layered Leaves are embossing folders, used with the Big Shot Die-Cutting machine. You'll LOVE the pieces I've included in your project packet!
And finally, if you still need to add a thing or two to your order, stocking up on adhesives is always a good option!

One final, important thing...when you place your order, please DO NOT select "No Contact". If you do, I will not have the information I need to send you the Class To-Go materials!
Until next time...happy stampin'!
