Another girls get together!
I got together with the girls again this weekend. We did another shoebox party, this time making 2 items to share. We stamped for about 5 hours, ate lots of yummy food and made lots of fun stuff!
I made a card with 2 different colored bases. But, I cut my second pink CS wrong and changed up the purple card. I ended up liking it the best! The other is a mini post it note holder made from a coaster. So simple and pretty cute, too!
Francine's cards were super cute! Pretty detailed, with quite a few steps, but worth the time it took to make them. I love the mummy, I stamped a few extra so hopefully I can come up with something equally cute to make with them!
Jeanie's Christmas card was extremely simple, just the way I like it! I love the use of patterned paper, I HOARD paper so I should have lots to choose from when casing this...which I definitely plan to do! The other is another post it note holder that holds the 3x3 sized pad. It's made from an acrylic picture frame, you know those cheapie dollar ones. I believe there was a tutorial on SCS for it. What a quick, easy and useful, gift!
Michelle's card was simple, too. You know I like simple! We colored in the image with the SU pastels. So cute! I'm not a big fan of coloring (well, with anything other than crayons anyway) but love the look! The box is really cute, too! Again, really easy, and with a little stamping makes for a cute party favor!
I love it when we are able to get together. I wish we could do it more!
