Nanci and I had planned an overnight special at Lake View Lodge for February 19th. Several members of Nanci's Stamp Club signed up, so we decided to have the February Club meeting at Lake View Lodge! We had a blast! We had planned to make this delicious cupcake card, but we forgot the Create a Cupcake stamp set!
What do you do when you are 125 miles from your sentiment? You improvise!
Terry, the newest member of the Stamp Club, is modeling the re-design with an extra cherry on her cheek! We love the Red Glimmer paper--it makes the cherries on the cupcakes sparkle! The Elegant Lines embossing folder really adds depth and swirl to the cupcake icing! Nanci and I went to a Stampin' event at Carol Nee's home and she actually had the cutest cupcake stand and cupcakes that looked just like the one's on Nanci's card! They were delicious too!
From cupcakes, we switched over to Ice Cream Parlor DSP from the sale-a-bration catalog!
The colors of this DSP are fun and fresh. The Sew Suite stamp set is great! I wish they had done sentiments to go with them! Nanci and I want to suggest; Sew nice to meet you, Sew Sweet, Miss you sew much. The possibilities are endless! Share your sentiment ideas with us--leave us a comment at the end of this post!
Puns from the Past stamp set does include--sew glad we're friends--I recently purchased that stamp set just because it had that sentiment in it! :)
The Sweet Stiches DSP paper and Pattern Pieces stamp are great too! We used the coordinating fabric and buttons with a little bit of crochet trim to embellish our card. Another great card using Sweet Stiches DSP and Designer Fabric!
Once we finished our club projects, we jumped right into full throttle crafting mode! Michelle and Jessice were swapping pictures and the stories behind them!
Have you ever made a diaper cake for a baby shower? Becky's turned out so cute!
Making sure that the stamp is inked thoroughly!
Terry's very first scrapbook page!
A whole lot of scrapbooking is going on!
Chris made her first Squash Book and has plans for a second one already!
These ladies are serious crafters! Almost everyone was crafting until 2:30 AM, but I heard the first person head back to the craft room around 7:30 AM!
Jessica took several photos of our group before everyone left Sunday afternoon! These two are my favorites.
Which do you prefer the black and white or the color photo? Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you would like to bring your group to Lake View Lodge for a crafting retreat! We are running a Crazy 8 Special right now. Bring your group of eight crafters and we will give you an additional $200 off our Spring 2011 Special of $199 per person! Happy crafting!
