This past weekend I had the pleasure of hosting a lovely group of ladies at my Annual catalogue launch which was actually a big crafty party. We crafted, chatted, played games, laughed, enjoyed some yummy food and just had a really good time.
I prepared a goody bag for each of my guests. Inspiration for contents came from a fellow demonstrator but I don’t have her name as I only saved the photo. Each year I enjoy filling up the goody bags … it’s a bit like a Christmas stocking! I have as much fun decorating them as I do picking what goes in each of these bags.
This year my theme was the Come Sail Away suite. The ideas on the catalogue cover had me fall in love with t,his suite from the start. I made a tag using the new Delightful Tag Topper Punch and stamped and die cut elements to decorate the bag. I also decorated a Post-it-Note holder to match following instructions from Sam Donald.
Take a piece of cardstock that measures 8×3.5″ and score it at 2, 2 3/8, 5 1/2 and 5 7/8 inches (9 x 20cm and score at 5, 6, 14 and 15 cm). Then just decorate and embellish as you like.
Here are some photos of the displays and of the ladies creating their Make and Takes. Photo credits to my daughter Cassidy who was on photographer duty on the day as I was madly running around getting everything done.
