Fun party in the 'burbs!

My good friend Andrea moved in with her cousins late in 2009 -- all the way to Eden Prairie! (To non-TC folk, that's a good 20 miles from Minneapolis, even farther from St Paul.... to a city gal like me, it's faaaaaaar away!) But, now that she's set up in the 'burbs, she has the perfect space for a Stampin' Workshop! I headed down there on Thursday for a workshop, and had a lot of fun! The ladies who came (mostly ladies from Andrea's new 'hood, mostly friends of Andrea's cousin) were fun, outgoing, crafty people - the perfect kind to have at a Stampin' Workshop!

I got to show off some clear mounts stamps; they got to use some SAB materials and make a cute Valentine's day card! Here are the make-and-take projects:

2010 Calendar Bookmark
Stamp Set: Vintage Vogue
Cardstock: Bermuda Bay, Saffron, white computer paper
Designer Series Paper: None
Stampin' Pads (Classic): Bermuda Bay, So Saffron, Pretty in Pink
Accessories/Tools: Scallop Trim Border Punch, 1/8" circle punch, Elementary Ribbon Originals

Love Bandit Card
Stamp Set: Love Bandit

Designer Series Paper: Welcome Neighbor
Stampin' Pads (Classic): Basic Gray

Andrea just LOVED the Love Bandit set the first time she saw it, so I really wanted to make sure to incorporate it into her party. She was pleasantly surprised when I presented it to her as a Thank You gift for hosting the party! :)

Stampin' Workshops are the perfect "girls night out" - gather some friends, make some food, serve some wine and everyone has a good time! I'd love to help you plan your workshop - please contact me right away! I'll even go anywhere from the city to the burbs! :)
