My Stampin Up Party

I have some of the best friends in the world. 
They were willing to come out in the rain and cold 
on a week night just for one of those "sales" party. 

Why? you ask...
 Because it was all about scrapbooking!!
 That's why they are my favorites! 
 Don't they look like a fun bunch!

These are some of the girls that I go away with twice a year to spend 3 glorious days of
 nothing but scrapbooking.

After watching a ton of Youtube videos of scrapbooking techniques,
I thought it would be fun to host a "Stampin Up" party.  This is a wonderful company that offer a ton of scrapbooking and card making products.
 I thought it might give us some fresh ideas and inspire us before our trip in a few weeks.
And it did!

Now these pictures are really terrible but I am going to share them anyway.
I just loved this card that our Demonstrator Kathy made for one of her card classes.
It was so cute and don't you just love the little owl. 
It is actually a punch. 

Of course, I just had to make one...

Isn't he cute?

I really had no idea how many wonderful products this company offers until this party.  
You can check them all out for yourself

They have stamps, inks and all kinds of tools to make your scrapbook pages beautiful!
Something new that I learned about at this party was how to emboss paper. You can turn any plain card stock into something really special just by embossing it with a beautiful pattern. 

Now I must have one of these....
