Spring/Summer OPEN HOUSE!

Well, I had my new catalog open house today! It went great! It was nice to meet Paula for the first time and see Liz again!! and as always Correen and Tracy were there (as well as my crafty niece, Kait)!!

We all went thru the catty...many times...writing many wish list...narrowing down...adding more!!

I had 2 make and takes available!! They were simple but super cute and Springy!! Which was nice on this cold, windy day!! BRRRR...

The first is a cute card! I used Apricot Appeal as a base and added some Delicate Dots DSP (available for the SAB brochure...see here for details!) I also used Bashful Blue and Whisper White cardstock.

The latte stamp in the Pun Fun stamp set was perfect for our "Warm up" party!!

Just a little ribbon and markers and woo-lah!! It is done!!

The second make and take is kinda a card! It is a gift card/money holder!! Perfect to sneak some special handmade coupons in too!!

I found this super cute idea here...Envelope Card

As was pointed out to me, I once again used the Top Note Sizzix die (Stampin' Up! exclusive!! ask me how you can get one!!) again.

So I have used it for EVERY open house, workshop and get together I have had...SO WHAT!! LOL

Funny thing is...every time I have used it is has been different (cut into a card, bag topper...ect!)

The pink card holder is just a lunch bag!! How simple!!

I am not sure what color I the purple is but will check when I head downstairs!!

Well, gotta clean up after a fun morning!!

If you didn't make it to my open house for any reason...that is OK!! You still have time to order with me...I will be placing an order on Monday afternoon!!! Call or email me to get 10% shipping!!
