I had my Mini Catalogue Launch party on Sunday. I love hosting an event when a new catalogue comes out...we don't need much of an excuse for a party at our place! 40 people came along to have champas and yummy food, look at new samples, take part in some specials, have a chance to win prizes, take home a little treat box and of course what would a party be without stamping? LOL
I had 2 make-and-takes for everyone to take part in. I had to keep them nice and simple so that everyone could get a turn. I made them using my 4 favourite products from the mini. First is the "Great Friend" stamp set. A bargain at only $31.95 for 5 extremely versatile stamps. It's so easy to whip up a quick card like this one:
I've used some of my favourite colours too....In Color Baja Breeze, and Basic Grey which has been getting such a workout lately, and the only shade of yellow I seem to use - So Saffron. The little flower is from the Trio Flower punch, with a silver brad in the centre.
After I made this card, I was itching to step it up. So, here's the same card, with it's glad rags on!
A cute Designer brad, with a half pearl on top, and I've cut out the butterfly and popped the wings up using dimensionals, and I've also popped the So Saffron layer up on Dimensionals too, and sunk the oval greeting inside the oval hole!
Tomorrow I'll tell you my other 3 favourite products, and show you the other make-and-take, and I have a tutorial planned too, for the little treat boxes I gave out!
I sent out a Special Offers newsletter with a couple of Special Bundles that I have done up. Make sure you are signed up to my newsletter -------> to receive your copy!
