My first Stampin' Up! Event

Finally after being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for about a year and a half now, I finally organized and held my first New Catalog Kick Off Weekend!  I put together 5 cards and a 3D project for my guests to make.  For them, I made a cute little goody bag which held a little note pad I altered, mini gel pen, a 3x3 thank you note, and a little altered container holding embellishments they'd use for their cards and some extra gifts.  I also added a doily in there for 2 of their cards they'd be making.

Here is the goody bag, front and side.  They got an altered soda pop top on a ball chain for their scissors.  Now at a class/crop etc, their scissors will stand out!

Here are the note pads that were altered and the little Thank You note I made for them.

Happy Birthday Card:
This card used Island Indigo and Whisper White Card Stock.  I used the Venetian Romance DSP, and Flowershop stamp set/punch (Available as a bundle at a 15% discount: W 132727 C 132726).  Ink used: Crisp Cantaloupe, Tangerine Tango and Island Indigo.  The Sentiment was from the hostess set: Express Yourself.  and the embellishments were: island indigo ribbon (retired), Doily, Large Pearl Basic Jewels, and Very Vintage Designer Buttons.

This card featured the new In Colours:
Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding, and Strawberry Slush.  I love this new set.
We used Baked Brown Sugar and whisper white card stock.  The ink colours are all of the new In Colours. The stamp set was Six Sided Sampler, which is also available as a bundle which includes the stamp set and punch at a 15% discount: (W 132725 C 132724)

What a cute Friendship card. I love this sentiment as well.  This card featured the new (returning) colour: Bermuda Bay. The sentiment was from the Feel Goods. I also used the Secret Garden stamp set and framelits, as well as the Oval framelits.
Card stock used: Bermuda Bay and whisper white.  Ink: Bermuda Bay, Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Garden Green.

*the cards made at the event used Bermuda Bay DSP for the larger oval*

This is one of my favourite cards of the bunch!  It used the Mosaic Madness bundle.  (W 132734 C 132733 includes stamp set and punch)  Card stock used: Pistachio Pudding and Whisper White.  Ink used: Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding.  The Sentiment used was from Really Good Greetings.  The Mosaic Embossing Folder and new Pistachio Pudding 3/8" Stretch Ruffle Ribbon (LOVE THESE!) were also used. 

Who couldn't use more Happy Birthday cards?  This one was really quick and easy.  We used the new In Colours: Coastal Cabana and Baked Brown Sugar card Stock as well as whisper white. 
The stamp is from the Label Love bundle (W 132723 C 132722) Another set I love!  The stamp was inked with the new 2013-2015 in colour markers (Baked Brown Sugar for the words and Coastal Cabana for the frame)  The border image was from the Mosaic Madness stamp set.  We added 1/2 a doily and a button (from the retired sale a bration button set)  This can easily be made into a masculine card as well.

ahhh now the 3D project: 
We made a pocket tissue holder. 
we used the new Smoky Slate card stock and whisper white.  I love the new Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper!  The colours are beautiful.  We used smoky slate ink for the sentiment (another stamp from the Really Good Greetings)  and more of the 3/8 Stretch ruffle ribobn... in coastal cabana.  I love that ribbon!  This turned out too stinking cute! 

thank you for stopping by! I can't wait to have my next event... featuring Christmas Cards!  The Holiday Catalog will be out soon (I can't call it a mini-as it's big) LOL
