Last Friday Night Stampin' Event at Grace Church
We had a little group last Friday but it was sure a lot of fun! These are 2 things I brought for us to make:)
This first card is actually more like a shadow-box that can mail like a card. How neat is that! I made it for one special friend who has a birthday this month:) Hope she likes it!
I wish I could take credit for the idea but this stroke of brilliance comes from another Stampin' Up! Demonstrator named Barb Mullikan. She did a great video tutorial to make this card almost exactly the way I did.
Recipe: Vintage Vogue Stamp Set; Pale Plum and Whisper White Card Stock; Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, and Kiwi Kiss (retired) Inks; Paper Snips, Button Bouquet (retired), Linen Thread, Silver brads, medium Window Sheet, 1 1/4" Square Punch,Score Pal, Crop-A-Dile, glue dots, dimensionals.
The next little goodie was LOTS of fun to make! The ladies were surprised how much easier this was to make than it looked:) They so enjoyed the cool, new punch($15.95 value) we can get for FREE from the Sale-A-Bration catalog just for having a $50 order.
The template is made from Jenny Moors' great tutorial for an Easel Desk Calendar. Take a look at the side view to see the easel part. What a neat idea that makes a dynamite gift. You can fill the drawer with note paper, 3x3" cards or chocolates, or any other little treasures you might think of. I'm usually a great, big copycat on decorative designs but this one is actually my own:) I just love the Seasons of Friendship Stamp Set!!
