Stamp Club this Week!!!

Howdy all!!!

Stamp Club is this week on Thursday. I have plenty of space so let me know if you'd like to attend. For Club Members, this meeting is a Hostess Month meeting and you will need to place your order. The class fee is waved since you are ordering. Others may come and join us for the class. The cost is $8. Let me know if you are interested.

Above is the Diaper Fold Pouch. This name always just makes me laugh. Must be cuz I have boys and can just hear them say "Awwwww, you said diaper!!" This is such a fun packet to make and a pouch of Hot Chocolate fits right in. This would make a great card to give as a gift along with a new mug, coaster, etc. I used an 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 square of Very Vanilla for the card base. I rolled the Take A Sip wheel across portions of the Very Vanilla. The ink I used is Early Espresso and the designer paper is Autumn Spice...all Stampin Up items. If you are interested in making one of these....come to my monthly stamp class this Thursday. The fee is $8 for all 3 items shown here.

This card is the Ghirardelli Pocket Card. I used Cherry Cobbler cardstock for the card base and Very Vanilla for the inside. I used the stamp set Christ is Born for the poinsettia and the sentiments. The Poinsettia is also cut out and on the front of the paper with Jolly Holiday designer paper. These make fun Secret Santa treats to leave on your co-workers desk, or stuff into a stocking for Christmas.

We will also be making this nugget tin. It holds 10 Hershey nuggets. I stamped on address labels then you peel and stick the label around the nugget. This set is a retired hostess set from last years catalog. I'm such a dork...I thought this was a new set. I found it in my stack of Christmas Stamps still not put together. So, I assumed I had ordered it just for these tins for this class. Then I got to typing up the directions for my Stamp Club ladies and realized that this set was a retried hostess set. Oh, well, an updated stamp set that I would use would be Sparkly and Bright on page 44 of the catalog, or the Jumbo Roller Sparkling on the same page. Serene Snowflakes would also be a great one to use for this.
