Hello everyone. It has been a wonderfully busy time around here. I have been trying to find a balance between spending time with my son and preparing for my New Catalogue Open House. We had been going to the pool and then coming home so that I could get a little work done. It was so worth it as my Open House was a success and I had a blast. Hopefully the ladies did too!! Everyone who attended received a new catalogue, a post-it-note holder and a bookmark. These items were made with the new in colour paper. Here's a pic:
There were draws for booking, ordering, bringing a friend and door prizes. I also offered my retired stuff free with an equivalent purchase from the new catalogue. We worked on three projects:
This lovely pear card is from the new hostess set, Faith in Nature. I absolutely love this set. It also uses some of the new Chocolate Chip Scallop Dots ribbon. This card was CASED from Jennifer Weide. Check out her blog: http://www.sunflowerstamper.com/2011/06/faith-in-nature.html
This birthday card was made with the new Pennant Builder Punch and the new Pennant Parade stamp set. The colours used here are the new Island Indigo and Pool Party. This card was CASED from Mindy Backes. Check out her blog at:
Our final project:
This birthday card uses the returning two step stamp set, Awash with Flowers, and the new colours Wisteria Wonder and Lucky Limeade. The Wisteria Wonder coordinates perfectly with Concord Crush. I wasn't sure about this colour combination but it's growing on me.
All in all, it was an exciting evening and I enjoyed seeing some old friends and meeting some new ones. I thank everyone for coming out and making this night a success.
Thanks for stopping by.
