Kick-Off Party Post Update

Thank you to my customers that attended the NEW Catalog Kick-Off /Customer Appreciation Party!  A  great time was had by all.  There were lots of giveaways, eats & treats, make-n-takes and a Free copy of Stampin’ Up!’s New Idea & Catalog Book.   I also would like to thank Minnie Cieslak for helping me with my event and her only request for helping me with my party was she wanted to stamp.  Well stamp we did!  I wish I would have taken pictures of my event but sadly I did not.  However here are pictures of the make-n-takes.

I do want to say THANK YOU again to all my stamping friends that were able to make it.  It was so much fun and I truly enjoyed talking and stamping with all of them.  I hope you all had as good of a time as I did.  I can’t wait for next year’s event and I’m looking forward to seeing my stamping friends at upcoming events and classes.

Graduation Explosion Box

For our grandson’s graduation gift I made this explosion box.  I obtained the instructions for the box from the Glitter Adventure blog.  For the top I cut the sides so it would look more like graduation cap.  I had a great time making this box making sure not to over embellish since it was for our grandson.  The box was also suppose to hold what every graduate going to college is hoping for…a check.  I made a button from Cherry Cobbler card stock and covered it with Crystal Effect and let it dry overnight.  I then took wire to make the holder for the envelope.  I used a Sharpie marker to wrap the wire around it to make the loops.  All the sentiments were printed from My Digital Studio.  I downloaded pictures from his FB page to include in the pockets of the second layer.  The outer layer has pockets for other momentos or photos.  I decorated each layer before assembling.  Once all the layers were decorated I adhered the box.  I photographed each layer below.
