This time last week, I was at my friend Shirley's house, having a crafty day
with several of our friends. We each brought one easy project, ate, crafted, ate, crafted,
and ate some more. The menu consisted of things like pizza and chocolate - enough said?
It was a yummy, uber-fun day, and I thought I'd share what we made.
These cute cards were Diane's design. Diane JUST signed up
to sell Stampin'Up! Here is what she brought for us to create:
easy way to create a shaker card:
Donna's mom, Marian, is an 'adopted mom' to us all. At 86, she is still so very creative,
beautiful, and kind. I feel so blessed to have her as an adopted momma!
Here is the project that Marian brought:
Our friend Sally, is a Stampin'Up! Demonstrator. She is the one who has the get-togethers
at the local coffee shop that Shirley and I always talk about. This beautiful card
was Sally's project for the day:
My bestie, Shirley, had the next project. What fun! You can see that you
end up with the two cards shown, PLUS a punched oval from the background.
Shirley has a tutorial HERE to show you how this is done:
Next up is our friend Cheryl. She brought these fun interactive items for us to
work with. You can't see here, but you can actually open these fun hoodies
to find a message inside! I wasn't sure how I was going to use these, so I did not
add them to cards yet. These are so much fun! There's the same detailing on the back!
Last, here was my project. I'll be sharing the directions for this style of card
sometime next month - watch for it!
We had a fun day. One friend that we'd hoped could make it was unable to
attend, but we're hoping for next year! This is an annual event for us.
We usually all attend the stamp convention in Collinsville IL in the summer,
as well. Again, we create (make & takes), eat, and an added bonus is SHOP!
Have a great week - thanks for dropping in!
