Hero Party Re-Cap
THANK YOU to all who was able to make it out to our Hero Arts Preview Party on Friday & Saturday. I know everyone's busy finishing up their Christmas shopping, so I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to stop by. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did...aren't the new stamps just too adorable?
I also wanted to send a special 'Mahalo' to Ida who stopped by to give me this beautiful lei she made. She knew I was hosting the party, and made this special lei for me to wear. Thank you so much Ida - hope you had fun at the movies afterwards!
The day was filled with Red Velvet cake (mmm..mmm good! I didn't have time to bake the cupcakes I had wanted to, so had to substitute with this instead), cookies, stamping, laughs and lots of fun. Here's some of the projects we worked on.
The first Make n' Take project was a cute little sour cream style favor box. I used the adorable fish from the Ocean's of Joy Poly Clear set, colored with markers and added a little stickles to his scales. The favor box was made with transparency paper and two strips of pattern paper. Super easy, super cute! We have the transparency paper for sale at the store in packs of 5 or 10.
Another Make 'n Take that we worked on was a simple little tag/card...here I used my Marvy Tag punch, folded the cardstock in half and punched out the tag by leaving the bottom fold in tact. Used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder to emboss one side of the tag and then stamped the owl from the Sweet Owls Sparkle Clear set. Punched the owl using my small scallop circle from Marvy and added a sentiment on the inside using the the Message Bubbles Clear set.
If you didn't get a chance to stop by for the preview party, we still have some catalogs available for sale. It's filled with great card ideas and lots of inspiration. I'll be working on more samples for the store, so I'll post some pix up as soon as they are done.
Thanks again to all who stopped by - I had a blast crafting with you. Until next time....
