Picture Perfect Birthday Card and Demonstrator Christmas Party...
One of our Hostess Tea projects was this quick little birthday card using the new Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes. These were designed to be used in the Lots to Love Box Die, but are perfect to go with a gift. I used the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set and coordinating Designer Series Paper and a tiny bit of the Myths & Magic glimmer paper. The cards are just 2-1/2" x 4-1/4", so they're too small to mail, but they are perfect to go with wrapped gifts and packages.
Now is the perfect time to join my team as a Stampin'Up! Demonstrator. During our Sale-a-bration event happening through the end of March, when you join for $99, you can choose your starter kit valued at $125. You can also pick two stamp sets of your choice - anything you want! There is no further obligation, but you'll want to stay active and take advantage of all the other perks as well. so click here to find out more.
One of the perks is attending Demonstrator meetings and parties. We had our annual Christmas party last month. Everyone can invite a guest (husband, child, friend, etc.), we do a handmade gift exchange, a small business meeting, pot luck dinner and some stamping fun. I thought I'd share some photos with you.
Some stamping fun with our loved ones. John had to work that night, so Samantha came as my guest.
Umbrellas with matching tote bags (and a new Crew pen) were my team gifts this year.
