Dec Stamp Club Meeting

Yesterday we had our December (Yes I know it is January, but we are a month behind now because of Christmas!! Lol!!) Stamp Club meeting! I always have SO much fun doing these meetings! I even hate to call them's more like a super fun play date for crafty women! :) SO I thought I would share our projects and also our swap cards for the month!

For our first project, I saw this card done at "Confessions of a Stamping Addict"... it is SO SO SO cute!! I fell in love with it and knew my ladies would too!!
Here is the front...
And ready for this??? The inside...OMG this is SO cute!!!!
I just LOVE this card!!! And this was just my "sample"!! I also had some paper for them to wrap around the tissue box to decorate it and make it stand out more! (Click on the link above for directions!)

And then we did the "Dryer Sheet Technique"....I had seen this technique for years and never tried it, but decided to give it a whirl! And I have to say...I love it!! It makes the card so pretty! Sparkly too! :)
I used the Stampin Up striped grosgrain ribbon and used markers to add the pink to the ribbon! Here is the tutorial I used from SplitCoastStampers!

Now on to our swap! Each month I challenge "my ladies" to use the products they bought from the previous order to make cards for us to swap! It is a great way to make sure they taking their products OUT OF THE BAG & using them!!! (You know who you are!!!)

Here is my swap card:
Mom (Frosted Window tutorial from SCS)
And we are still waiting on 2 more swap cards!! I love doing these swaps!! I love seeing what everyone comes up with and how much everyone has progressed with their stamping, creating & designing! :)

Next month it was suggested that we use the Dryer Sheet technique for all of our swap cards...and see how many different ways we all use the technique! THAT will be interesting!!

Well, that's all for today! Hope everyone had a great weekend...oh wait! It's a 3 day weekend!!! Woo Hoo!!! :) :) :) 

Until next time...

I had a ball as usual. And the cards this month were totally awesome. The bar just keeps getting higher and higher, but thats a good thing. I just wanted to share that I brought the cards home and had my monthly "show and tell" with my husband George. He was Very impresses BUT he loved the get well card. He even ask who we could send it to!
