Hostess Party Projects

I had my Hostess Appreciation party yesterday, and of course, I was so intent on socializing, feeding my friends and stamping, that I got NO pictures!  I am just so bad at that!  But I did photograph our projects!  I wanted to highlight some SAB things, so everyone got to make a Kerchief Card from the Paper Pumpkin-style kit:

And in December my friend Sally sent me this lovely Christmas card, with this cute little "corner tuck" feature, and I loved it so much, I wanted to make one of my own:

So we made a card using the gorgeous florals from Best Dressed; this one happens to be on a  Blackberry Bliss card base, but some of the girls also did a Pear Pizzaz one with a different floral:

I chose to put another diecut right on top of the triangle piece, stamped with a sentiment from Beautiful Day and embellished with a sequin:

We used a new set, So Sentimental, for the inside panel!  Everyone really like this style of fold!

Finally, we did a Valentine candy treat using the Printed Cello bags from the mini catalog and the Over the Moon set:

A heart was diecut from Rose Glimmer Paper and a little topper from Rococo Rose; the stamped panel was diecut with a die from Stitched So Sweetly, then colored with Blends.  To make the moon, they stamped the image on the back of a piece of Sparkle Glimmer paper, then hand-cut it out:

We also had cheeseburger soup, along with salad, snacks and desserts!  Delish!  Thanks for visiting today!

Cassidy, Dana and Wayne enjoyed the 76ers game.....although Cass fell asleep before they even got there:

It's good to get a nap before a big game!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Great post! I don't believe I've ever seen that particular fold, but I like it. Are there any videos or instructions for it that you know of? Have a blessed week. How great are all those smiles to start my morning!
