We gave a couple of moms the opportunity to host a Stampin' Up! party for a group of their friends. Check out some of these great photos and quotes from the parties.

flowerfunleah says: I hope you can see the lovely embossed results on my red paper there! The design was super super pretty and I was so proud of myself aftewards lol. The stamps were so pretty! If you look closely we used two different colors of yellow ink, a mustard yellow and then a brighter yellow on top of that to create that cool effect. Annnd you'll see a silver heart on there. Thanks so much cafemom for giving me this opportunity, my guests and I had a great time and I'm sure we'll be using Stampin' Up in the future!

We made these really cute and EASY place card holders made with clothes pins (I think I might use mine to hold a picture and put it on my desk).
It was a wonderful time!  I am addicted to Stampin' Up stamps because they have a punch to match a majority of their stamps!!!  I filled up a whole order sheet of items!  YIKES!!!  Thank you Stampin' Up for letting me host a party and thank you to CafeMom who chose me to be a host.  It was a pleasure and guess what?  I CAN make an invite like the one I sent out after this party!

    Hi there!  I had my Stampin' Up party on September 21st and had a wonderful turnout!  Here is a pic of all the girls (minus 3 - myself, who was taking the pic and 2 who showed up a little later).

    My host was Glenda Travelstead, who is first of all, a riot!  I knew we would hit it off right away when she told me on the phone that her motto is, "If it's not fun, you're doing it wrong."  Here is a pic of she and I:

    The invites that Stampin' Up provided were adorable.  My friends graciously thought that I actually made them.  I should have kept quiet and let them believe that I could make something like this:

    I had slaved over a fruit tray and a veggie tray:

    Chick-fil-A nuggets (I don't care who you choose to love, but I choose to love me some nuggets!):

    We had yummy desserts made by my MIL and a close friend - SMORES rice crispy treats! What?!?!

    One of my closest friends actually works for CafeMom.  So, here are Christen and Glenda talking business:

    We used our dining room table for those who wanted to craft and it turned out to be a perfect fit.

    After we snacked and chatted, Glenda got down to business.  Like I said before, she is a riot.  It did not feel like a sales pitch at all, it felt like I was crafting with all of my closest friends!  She showed us what we were going to make and explained all of Stampin' Up's tools and fun stuff. 

    This is the kit that Glenda handed out to everyone.  It had everything you needed in it to make the card that she showed us and we used all of Stampin' Up's tools, stamps and paper.

    Some of the girls think they are not very "crafty", well let me show you this card made by my supposedly "non-crafty" girlfriend!

    Looks adorable to me!!!  We also made these really cute and EASY place card holders made with clothes pins (I think I might use mine to hold a picture and put it on my desk):

    Here are a couple more pictures of the ladies crafting:


    I love my girlfriends!  It was such a fun night and everyone said they had a great time!

    For being a host Glenda gave me these adorable cards!
