I made a whole paper cherry pie! I served everyone a piece once they were all seated and settled in!
These adorable pieces of pie are the original idea of the very talented (and oh so sweet!) Connie Stewart! Are they not just the cutest (and yummiest!!) thing ever?!
Here is a single piece topped with whipped topping! But wait...there is more! LOL
The back opens up so that it can be filled with goodies!
Yum, yum, yum! Big thank you to Connie for sharing such an awesome idea!!
Next goodie I made them was a bookmark with all of the new In Colors!
The ribbon is the new Hello Honey! Pretty! I figured these could be tucked into their new catties!
Then I showed them a couple of the new hostess sets (which are all wonderful this year!! Every single one is a must have IMO!) I made this little tag using the Hello Love hostess stamp set.
I think that those birds are so cute!
Next hostess set I showed was Bloom with Hope. Here is a sample card I made using it.
This card also uses the new Itty Bitty Punch Accents Pack. (flower)
Next I showed them a couple of the new stamp sets and this sample:
I made this using the new Something for Baby stamp set and coordinating (jumping up and down!!!) Baby's First Framelits! This set is going to get so much use this year!!
Then I showed them the neat new Rotary Alphabet stamp! This was a big hit! You can dial in all sorts of fun sayings!! Each person got to try it out and this is what we all stamped:
We had a catalog scavenger hunt and then played a fun game! The new Work of Art (love, love, love, love this new set!!) is a tight fit in the wood mount. The pieces do all fit back in the box, but it is literally like a puzzle trying to work it all out! I thought why not turn that into a game?! Each person had 1 minute to try to make them all fit back into the box! *giggles!!* LOL It is the little things, right?!
In to our projects! We made a dress screen card using the new hostess set Bloom with Hope.
Here it is laying flat so you can see all of the panels.
Then we made a card using the Something for Baby set and it's coordinating framelits.
Last up we made an Easel x 4 card! These are just so much fun to do!
We had such a great time! I just love getting together with stamping buddies!! I wish you could all come to my classes too! I would love to have you!
Ok, well I am off to enjoy this beautiful day! I have enjoyed visiting with you here and hope you will be back soonest! I will see you then! Much love!
