Pacific Stamper’s August Group Meeting!

As you can see I'm a little behind in my postings!  August was a busy month for me with work, travel, classes, etc.!  I'm hoping to get caught up before I leave for Founder's Circle coming up in September!!  Wish me luck!  I need it!  Here are some pictures from my monthly downline meeting, which we hold on the first Friday of every month.  We discuss a little business, share, swap, make a project, and just eat, drink and be merry!

Here are this months swaps.  Our swap theme this month was cards using new accessories from our new catalog!

Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe Page!

Shelby designed this cute Stuffed Mushrooms recipe page for Craft Project Central!  We've had several of you let us know that you are making these recipe pages every month and making them into recipe books that you'll be giving away as gifts at Christmas!  As a result, starting this month, we've created a page that has the recipe on it multiple times so you can print one page and get four recipes at once!  If you're just creating one set for your own personal recipe collection, you can print the page with the single recipe on it!
