New Catalog Kick Off Party!

Good Morning! Happy Saturday!

I just wanted to share some pictures from my New Catalog Kick Off party that I hosted this past Wednesday! It was a great turnout and I was so happy to see so many of you! 23 ladies were able to come out and visit, stamp and eat some munchies. Congratulations to the ladies that won door prizes too!

If someone brought a new friend then they both got to choose out of my basket of goodies.

OK, for the life of me I couldn't get this picture to upload the normal way! I took it and it displays normal on my camera and the computer but when I upload here its sideways! Arhhhh glitches. Anyway I thought you'd still get the idea :) Each lady got a wrapped chocolate bar as a thank you gift for coming. I used my Big Shot and the large Scallop, some ass't ribbon and the Oval All stamp set and scallop oval punch. Making 30 of these went quite quickly as I had my helper, Kylie. She did all the Big Shot cutting for me while I did the ribbon.

Another project Kylie and I made was wrapping the Lindt chocolate with label stickers. I stamped in the New In Colours on a label sheet with my Fifth Avenue Floral and then Kylie and I wrapped each little chocolate with a label. YOu could do this with any occasion - it really looks special :)

The 2 make n' takes. With up to 30 woman coming into my house and I to really think about this. I've never done this many at one time. Anyway I loved this idea on saw on another blog a few weeks ago. I especially loved it as I had the Box #2 Die already! I just ordered some In Colour 12x12 cardstock and I was ready to go.
Each lady got to choose their paper and polka dot in colour ribbon.

Lastly is the card. Everyone agreed it was a nice, easy layout to use in the future. On In Colours used. As well as Upsy Daisy stamp set.

Everything went really smoothly and I was happy to find homes for most of my retired items. Now I have some $$ to play with ordering some NEW product...oh how to narrow down my wish list! Anyway thanks for stopping by,

Happy Stampin'
