Open House – part 1

Well, for those of you who weren’t able to attend my Open House last Saturday, you missed a really fun time. Everyone in attendance received a free Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog AND a free Holiday Catalog, which begins August 28, so they are getting a good long sneak peek.

If you’d like your own Holiday Catalog contact me at [email protected]

There were special gifts for anyone who brought a friend, placed a minimum order, booked a party, or joined my team. Can you say free stamps, ink, paper, and ribbon?

Brian King was there to help, and I sure am glad, because it got really busy at times.

Here’s the Paper Pumpkin station. Just look at those fantastic projects, and that’s just two months’ worth!10561942

With the Petite Purse die, I was able to create these charming little gift bags in the new In Colors. Each one contained a stamp and went to everyone who brought a friend to the Open House.


This bag looks like it took forever, but it really just took a little over an hour. Cut a bunch of the Spiral Flowers (I used 28 for this bag,) wrap and glue them, and voila, a covered bag!

I love my new Autumnal napkin rings. I used the Autumn Accents die to cut the leaves and acorn.

Lots of gift ideas, including a covered tissue box, a decorated kraft grid journal, and wrapped candies
Lots of card samples. My thanks go to all the talented Stampin’ Up demos with whom I swapped at Convention in July! If not for them, this table would’ve had only about half as many cards.
The dining table ready for Making & Taking. It was free for everyone. Thanks to Pam Morris for the idea!
