And we made several cards - we were doing shoebox swaps but April was our last meeting of those. The ladies did a fabulous job!
Each lady provides her recipe of the card so that we can very easily duplicate the card for our own workshops and classes! TEAMWORK - Go Latte Joy Stampers! :)
We also talked about the new catalog and all the wonderful things in it. While we are always sad to say good-bye to some of our favorites, it is really nice making room for the new stuff too! And because I was able to attend the Salt Lake City Regional, and Stampin' Up! was kind enough to let us shop for the new stuff too, we were able to play with some of the sneak peeks!
A shoebox swap means that everyone brings the card and its pieces and parts for the card, so we each were able to make the cards! I was especially glad because I didn't have EITHER stamp set that Nina OR Sandie used. Trust me - it is really hard to find a stamp set that I do not have! Ask my husband! :)
Nina used the white vellum cardstock for her butterfly - made easy to punch out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch. And while we did have to fussy cut the blue flower, all of the others were punches - Blossom Punch, 1.75" Scallop Circle Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, and Scallop Edge Border Punch.
Our next meeting is during Stampin'Up!'s annual Convention. So, although we will not be at Convention, we will still be craftin' with our Stampin'Up! Sistahs (and brothers too - there ARE male demonstrators!). If you are interested in joining my team - I'd LOVE to talk with you!
