My Stampin' Up! Party Tonight

So Mother Nature decided to work with me tonight and hold off on the bad weather that we had expected. Nice of her since tonight was my Stampin' Up! party! We had a great time. Yvonne demo'd some neat new projects and we got to make a couple of nice cards. I also met a couple new gals that I've known of for a while on CST (Canadian Stamp Talk, a Yahoo Forum that I belong to.) Nice to finally put a face to the name and cards that I see. Kim and Val are very sweet and are truly talented ladies! And...from what I hear are very sick girls when it comes to stamping and the amount of stamps and ink pads that they have! lol :) Stamping truly is a sickness, for which I am am getting more and more ill as time goes on. What a wonderful hobby! :)

This first project is one that Yvonne Balmer, (my SU Demonstrator) demo'd. What an adorable little heart shaped oragami type basket to hold little goodies. I can see myself making these for my girls for Valentine's Day! You use a 6 x 6 piece of double sided paper and with a few folds and and minimal cutting for the heart shape, ta-da! You have the cutest little basket. For this one, she filled with gummy bears and yogurt covered raisins. Humm, wonder how long those will last! lol :)

For the next project, Yvonne demo'd, as well. This was a beautiful little portfolio to make to hold another card or cards on one side and the envelopes on the other. They slide down into a pocket and area held in place with the ribbon that you see that ties to hold the portfolio closed. I can see myself making some of these, too. A very nice idea! Thanks for idea, Yvonne!

This is the final card that Yvonne demo'd. Another sweet little card. Love the colours and the posies and adorable. Simple, but nice. I really like the effect of the cut out stamped flowers, but I 'hate' cutting things out! I wish I had a punch to do all the work for me for all the stamps I have that I like to cut out! I just need to win the lottery and I'll have a punch made to go with all those stamps! :)

So again, these three projects were made by Yvonne Balmer, my Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. Both a super demo and a super person! Thanks so much for coming out to play, Yvonne!
