Meeting New Friends (and Old!)

DSCF5020

Yesterday I got to go on a short stamp shopping expedition--say that three times fast!!  I met up with an "old" stamping friend, Denise (peanutbee) and also a new stamping friend, Cathy (CathyMac on SCS).  We all live within an hour of a nice little stamp store in the heart of Amish Country, so we met up and did some shopping!!  Be sure to ask Denise what I "enabled" her to buy!!!! LOL!

And just for fun, I snapped a photo of the cute young man who was running the store, probably for his mom:

Isn't he sweet?  I think he was a little overwhelmed by our exuberance!!

Before I left, I realized I hadn't made a little something to give the girls.  I already had Puns from the Past sitting on my desk, so I got some gingham paper from my Crafty Secrets Earthy pad, some buttons from PTI, some taffeta from SU and made two of these quick little notebooks:

Although we don't "sew" together, we do have a common thread through our love of stamping!  After a delicious lunch at Shady Maple Smorgasbord, we went on our separate ways, but we will definitely be meeting again and adding some other stampers to our group!!!  Thanks, girls!!

  10. Looks like you gals had a fabulous time! I have a quick question - how do you get the paper on the notebook cover so perfect? Do you take the notebook apart, punch the holes, stick the paper on and put it back together? Hope I'm not revealing my total lack of experience here. They are so cute! ~chris

  14. My stamping friends and I go to the same stamping store out there in Amish country. Love her store and her prices! I went in June when she had the owner of Sweet N Sassy Stamps there in the classroom and we did make and takes. Fun time. Only problem is you tend to spend too much money there! HA!
