Our first hostess club was held on Monday! We had a great time hanging out, chatting about all the new stuff in the Spring-Summer catalog, and making 3 projects! Here they are:
I got this idea from Nichole Heady's website http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2007/12/a-sneak-peek-of.html. I used the 1" punch and the Bali Breeze paper to create the cover for the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. We wrapped the tin in a strip of Bali Breeze paper, and adhered it using some Mono Multi Adhesive. The lid features some Certainly Celery ribbon, and a new rub-on from Stampin' Up! The tins can be found at specialtybottle.com
This card was made using a River Rock base. The designer paper is called Ginger Blossom. We used the Embrace Life stamp set for the flowers and phrase on Whisper White cardstock. We finished it off with some River Rock double stiched ribbon!
We finished off the evening with this progressive scrapbook page. We used the Wanted set from Stampin' Up! and a Close to Cocoa base. The horses were stamped using Versamark. The 8-1/2"x 11" base is a sheet of River Rock, with stars stamped using Versamark. The 6"x6" portion is Pumpkin Pie with a strip of Close to Cocoa, a square piece of River Rock under the Whisper White. We stamped the Wanted on the Pumpkin Pie using Basic Brown Classic ink and finished off the 6"x6" with a piece of River Rock double stiched ribbon. For our embellishments, we used the scallop punch in River Rock, Close to Cocoa, and Pumpkin Pie. The centers were created using Build a Brad!
