Birthday Gift & Open House, and 2 spaces for rent!

Well, As i had stated before, this past week was my lil' sis's bday! And she totally loves designer purses... so, a few posts ago, i showed you the cute Top Note purse i made her, and now i am showing you the second half of her gift - this was a purse that i found the wonderful template online (link below) and i knew she would love it! I used the Designer Series Paper - Urban Oasis (which is sadly retiring at the end of this month!!) It features a Top Note die as the top, and 2 scallop envelope dies on the front. Here is a pic of the closed up purse: (You can click on the pic to enlarge!)
Here is the link: PURSE here <----- Tutorial link!!! Here is a pic of the purse opened, and showing you how it holds 6 cards (i put 3 on each side) + envelopes. I simply adhered 2 celo bags to put the cards in. Then there is room for a pen in the middle. (Click on the pic to enlarge)

Below is a pic of the 6 cards.. All from the Urban Oasis DSP and Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp Set. (Click on the pic to enlarge)

Now, if that wasn't enough yummy stuff to look at - I held my first Open House / Workshop at Calvary UMC yesterday.. I did 2 projects with the ladies... here they are:

We had a GREAT time, it was fun to watch everyone create their masterpieces!! (Including my daughter). I also gave everyone a bookmark with swatches of the new In Colors on them, i think those were a big hit! And everyone enjoyed receiving a lil' prize at the end of the night also. If you missed this night, don't worry, you can book your own workshop - either at our church, or your home, and have all the fun that we did! And earn some great free gifts!! Email me for details!
On to the CLUB spaces for "rent" --- I am going to be starting up a Stamp Club with a few of the ladies who came last night.. And we have room for 2 more players!!
What does this mean? Well, basically, you would commit to joining our club for 6 months, and each month members agree to place at least a $25 order thru me by a set date determined..
Each month we take turns rotating the benefits, and every month one person out of the 6 is assigned to be the hostess. The month that you are the hostess, you benefit by getting and extra of at least $15 in free merchandise, and a free hostess stamp set!!! You will know ahead of time which month you will be the hostess, and if you want to invite others (family/friends) to join us, to increase your benefits, you may!
Each month, we as a club, will gather, and create a couple items (cards, 3 d items, scrapbook pages, etc) - if you can't attend in person that month, no problem - i can mail you the package and directions for your goodies, and you can assemble them on your own.
******If you do not live in the area, and still want to join us -- PLEASE DO!!!! This club can be for people in town, or across the country! I can priority mail you all the materials to create the same projects that we will be making, along with pdf directions -- distance is NOT an issue!!
If this sounds exciting to you and you want to join us -- please email me at today, and i can email you over the agreement and info sheet. We are looking to begin on July 1st and will be setting the date to gather that month.
**Currently, we have (2) spots left!
