This past Saturday was my open house product launch. I spent an entire week cutting, stamping, folding, printing, cleaning, inviting and hoping people would come and enjoy themselves. I’m still cleaning up from my week of madness – I mean really…just look at these pictures – they say it all..what a disaster!!
But the leftover chaos my craft room is still in was SO worth it! I met 3 brand new people, taught some new techniques, chatted with some old friends (and new ones), and we all just had a ball! I love what I do!!
Half of my guests were already familiar with SU! and the other half had never even inked a stamp (which by the way, I LOVE because they are always REALLY excited to see what they can make)! Either way, no one can deny how marvelous our products are. All 50 luscious colors have matching ink, markers, re-inkers, card stock, embellishments and patterned papers. And many of our stamp sets have coordinating punches and embossing folders. It’s just a fun, fun product to work with and I am SUPER geeked to be able to share it with all of you!
At my open, I had several projects on display for future workshops and 3 different make-n-takes for people to choose from (plus a fun little minion for the kids).
Here were our 3 funtabulous make-n-takes:
Paper bows coming in the holiday catalog!
My inky finger got in the way!
I only had one little girl show up, but I think she enjoyed making this little guy from Despicable Me!
Who doesn’t love a minion? I can’t wait to see Despicable Me! (Plus they make me hungry because they look like Twinkies!)
Anyway, I digress – The fall tag we made features the wood grain stamp and will be available in the fall StampinUp! catalog beginning August 1st, along with the paper bow featured on the first card at the top. Those paper bows are really going to be the unique difference between your gifts and everyone else’s gift this giving season. Don’t you agree?
The holiday catalog has Thanksgiving tablescapes, Christmas cards, tags and gifts, Halloween party favors, and tons more! If you’re ready to get a jump start on your projects and want your own copy of the holiday catalog email me at email@example.com! It’s chock full of the most gorgeous handmade artwork in the industry!
Flip through the holiday catalog here. I’m so excited!
