Pacific Stampers Group Meeting Swap and Project 1-15-10

My group, The Pacific Stampers and I usually get together the first Friday of every month, but since Naoko and I were at Leadership, we got together on the second Friday.  It is always great to see everyone that comes to the meeting.  We have a business discussion, swap, make a project, eat, drink and be merry!


Here are some of the swaps from the meeting:

This cute little recipe page was made by Joni Hirasa.  She also made some Red Velvet cupcakes and brought them to the meeting for us all to try.  There were delicious!!


Naoko's cute swap.


Sorry, I can't remember who made this beautiful card.  If you made this one, let me know so I can give you credit!


Sorry, I can't remember who made this beautiful card either!  If you made this one, let me know so I can give you credit!

Holiday Stamp Camp 11-09

Welcome to our group's fourth annual Holiday Stamp Camp!!  We had such a fun day!  Everyone stamped four projects, had the opportunity to see a demonstration of the new My Digital Studio software, had a chance at fabulous door prizes, participated in a silent auction for great Stampin' Up! products and hand made treasures, had a yummy lunch, and just got to have fun crafting and socializing with old and new friends!


Here is the check in table before our guests started arriving!


Here is a close up of the guest bags filled with all kinds of goodies as well as project packets for the four projects that they made that day!


Here is the darling little welcome sign that Brenda made to welcome all of our guests to Stamp Camp!  Too cute!!


And everyone got to choose a favor when they checked in.  The favors were also made by our very talented Brenda!


Here are the door prizes that await some lucky stampers!!


Card entries for our card contest.  Everyone votes on their favorite card and the card with the most votes is the winner!


Some great samples to be inspired by!


Jane did a My Digital Studio demonstration for anyone wanting to learn more about this great new software.  She had great samples and was able to project the screen images up onto the wall for better viewing! 


Jane created this picture with her My Digital Studio and then put it in this beautiful frame.  Love it!


Here are Blake and Krista, two sisters enjoying their stamping time together!

Craft Fair Items

I really enjoy doing craft fairs during the holidays, and that means making a lot of items to sell.

Here is what I have so far.  I'm making more things and will post pictures when I'm done with them. 


These little gifts have two little bottles of lotion in them.  The lotion is called Avojuice and is made by OPI, the company that make the fingernail polish.  They are the special limited edition holiday scents, Merry Berry and Pumpkin Spice.


These are calendars with a magnet on the back so you can hang them on the fridge or filing cabinet!





Holiday Gift Card Holders


And a restaurant gift card holder!


Check my calendar, and if you get a chance come see me at one of my craft fairs!!
