Catalog Premier Party & End of Stampin'Up year Sale

Oh my goodness!  I had a blast at my Catalog Premier Party & End of Stampin’Up year Sale!  Every year I do a chocolate fountain and all the goodies!

This is a great opportunity to treat my stampin’ friends with some free Make n’ Takes and some yummy goodness.  Not to mention that it’s a great opportunity to get a great deal on outgoing sets and tools that I am letting go to a good home.  This year I really purged!  Some sets were very hard to see go!

Cat Crew Party Table

 

This year we had our monthly Creative Cat Crew meeting right after the shopping madness started dying down.  It was nice to set a pretty table for the ladies who are my closest Stamping partners in crime ( I mean creativity!)  I love that we are starting to get a great group of swapping ladies together and sharing ideas!  I really wanted to play some games, but with the craziness of the day we had to settle for a random drawing for free Stampin’Up! gifts!  Too bad…lol…

This Stampin’Up! Oh So Succulent Birthday Card is a fresh burst of color.  I am sorry to see this set retire,  I just love how many framelits are available to create with!

Die cut the correct flower petals in white, Cucumber Crush, and Black.  I sponged the white flowers with Mint Macaron ink.  I placed a Cucumber Crush in color doily for an added pop of color!
