Weekend projects

Hello Stampers!  Thanks for coming back today to check out my fun projects that I made over the weekend!  I got together with a good friend of mine that I actually met through Stampin' Up!  She lives a couple of hours away and we used to get to see each other every year at Convention and again at Leadership.  Now that Stampin' Up! has changed the way they hold Convention, and the locations, we don't get to see each other very often!  So we decided we just needed to make an effort, and this weekend was it!  We met in the middle on Sunday.  Got a hotel room and stamped and talked for hours!  We had so much fun!  Here are the projects that we made:

Twist & pop card, Inkin With Dink This was the first project that I brought.  I wanted to figure out how to make a twist and pop card!

Twist n' pop card, Inkin With Dink We did it!  So easy and such a WOW card!

Gift card wallet, Inkin With Dink I also wanted to make a gift card wallet using our gift bag punch board!

Gift card wallet, Inkin With Dink They turned out really cute too!  Be watching for a video on how to make these!

pop up card, Inkin With Dink Sue brought this pop up card for us to make!

Hello Stampers!  Last night was my BINGO class!  We really had a great time!  I had 14 ladies come!  We played six games of BINGO and the prizes were all new products from the upcoming catalog!  We also made three cards using more new products!  Here are the cards that they made:

Fresh Fig card, Inkin With Dink  This card is using the new Crafting Forever stamp set.  It is going to be such a fun stamp set to play with!

Powder pink dsp card, Inkin With Dink This card is using one of the new in-colors, Powder Pink.  We also used the new In-color Glitter Acrylic Shapes!  There are hearts, flowers, arrows, stars and crosses!  They are so fun!

Tranquil Tide dsp card, Inkin With Dink This card uses another one of the new in-colors, Tranquil Tide.  It also has the new Fresh Florals designer series paper stack for the circles and the greeting is from the new Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set!  

This was also my catalog premier night!  I decided to serve some snacks, but I wanted them to have a connection with the new In-colors!  I had so much fun picking the perfect foods!  Here is what I came up with:

In-color snacks

Lemon Lime Twist - I had 7-up to drink!

Fresh Fig - Of course I had Fig Newtons!

Powder Pink - Pixie stix with pink powder inside!

Tranquil Tide - I was able to find Salted Carmel truffles with the perfect color of wrapping!  Yum!

Berry Burst - I made strawberry cookies!  Super easy to make and really yummy!  Here is the recipe:

    1 box cake mix

    2 eggs

    1/3 c vegetable oil

    Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix together all ingredients.  Roll into golf ball sized balls and place on cookie sheet.  Cook for 7 - 9 minutes until edges start to brown!  

That's it!  And they smell so yummy while they are baking!

Everybody left with the new catalog in their hands and a full tummy!  Thanks ladies for such a fun evening!

Here is what I did yesterday:

April Paper Pumpkin kit This is the April kit, and I think I have to say it is one of my favorites!  As I was doing the watercoloring, I wasn't so sure, but when I added it to the black card bases, they really popped!  Love them!

They were so much fun!  Don't forget about the Stampin' Up! retiring list!  Items are selling out on a daily basis, so if there is something you want that is retiring, you better get it before it is gone!
