Studio Club Members Only Night - Oh so much fun!!

The evening starts with everyone bringing in their favorite dish!  
Then, we enjoy a leisurely dinner as the blend of fun and fellowship continues.  

After catching up with news, sharing funny stories and things that we have done, the dinner table gets cleared to make way for  the evening's fun project. 

This is called a One Sheet WOW Box!  It is made from one sheet of 12x12" paper!
 As you can see, there is a lid, nesting, a base, sleeve, ribbon and tag.  I just added a scrap of vanilla, a button, and a pearl to give it class.
My next post will be giving the directions for how to make this great project, so be sure to check back :)

 We all pitched in and helped Tyette work on her baby shower favors for her friends shower next Friday:)

Then, chose a fun movie, Mamma Mia, to watch together!  What a blast we had:) 

Hope you will join us!!

Studio Club Members Gala

The Studio Club Members Gala was certainly a night to remember!  We ALL had such a blast crafting, laughing and decorating our special gifts for our member cubbies :)

Here, the girls are making their coasters so they have a special place to set their beverage while they are crafting!!

Tyette is showing her lovely design!  They all created such masterpieces...
using their very favorite images :)   Rose is wild about her tea and her coaster says it all with "Morning Cup" Stamp Set.  We used the retired craft inks because they set well by baking them for 30 minutes at 250 degrees. 

We also made this adorable card designed by my upline, Becky Jensen.  Thank you, Becky!  She made it from a window sheet using white stazon ink, dsp, silver embossing powder and brushed silver card stock.  The girls really loved this "wow" card!

It was so fun drawing names for all those huge prize bags!!  The 31 Bags were a big hit! 
Every month, we have a Studio Club Members only event that is free to members.  We have a potluck, craft, and something else fun to enjoy together:)  Won't you join us?!
