New Catalog Open House

Yesterday I held my new catalog open house, and it was so much fun! The girls all came ready to stamp with some new Stampin' Up! goodies, so that's just what we did! I'll show you their make-n-takes tomorrow, but for now here are some of the little extras I made…

I haven't made these cool Crystal Light holders in a couple of years, and I was surprised at how many of the girls had never seen them before. They're the perfect addition to any party or shower! I used strips of Poppy Parade card stock measuring 2 x 8 1/2", scored in 2" at each end. Then I punch a 1 1/4" circle in one of the scored 2" squares, and at the other end I folded up the 2" piece and stapled it together to create a pocket. I added some of the new Pawsitively Prints II BAB designer paper, then stamped "enjoy" from the Fabulous Phrases set in Marina Mist on WW card stock, and punched it out with the Square Scallop Punch. I added a punched Marina Mist heart with a Bitty Button over it (held in place with Crystal Effects) to finish it off.

Here are the favors:

For these I used the Milk Carton die for the Big Shot, what a breeze it is to create a bunch of favors with this die!! I used a variety of colors of card stock that all matched the Greenhouse Gala dsp, like Cranberry Crisp, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, Baja Breeze…then I added the word "sweet" from Fabulous Phrases to a punched oval and finished it off with a little Daffodil Delight 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon and a Mini Library Clip. They were filled with plain or peanut m&m's, yum 🙂

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
