Party Hearty at our Open House!

Here is the card we will be making at the open house at Oak Hill Elementary on Wednesday afternoon. We will begin at 3:30 if you want to come. This set uses the birthday set, "Party Hearty" and the colors Brilliant Blue, Tempting Turqoise, and Gable Green. The first picture is the front of the card, the second is of the inside of the card. I love how this set is not too girly, too!

P.S. - All the birthday sets are going to be on sale for 20% off if you make a purchase of $20 or more during the month of October!

First Stampin' Up Party

Carla Wells hosted our first Stampin' Up club event of the year. The party was a terrific success with 7 people showing up. We had terrific homemade pizza and, of course, Carla's masterful creations for dessert. We loved Carla's new home and her inspirational scrappin' area with a view of the spacious back yard.

I'm going to post our projects that we made - the first was a gift bag using the Fun and Fast Notes stamp set. I used the word window punch for and the 3 flower punch for the window. I colored the bird with my watercolor pencils and blender pens.
At the top is a tri-fold picture holder that can stand alone or be used as an embellishment on a scrapbook page. I used the Enjoy Every Moment stamp set and used VersaMark ink to heat emboss the images on vellum.
