Customer Appreciation Event - Thursday, August 7

Here are some pictures of the fun we had at the Customer Appreciation Event the other night....

the stamping.....

me, being silly!

one of my lovely assistants, my niece, Brynn (below) - my other lovely assistant, Lilly, was in charge of the camera and didn't get a picture of herself!

the food and drinks...

The BOGO product tables had to go outside (looked kind of like a sidewalk sale!) - there just wasn't any more room in the studio!!

I made a treat for each customer...

We made cello bags (filled with a York peppermint patty (yum!), Hershey kisses, and Lilly's new favorite, Werther's Caramels!!).  The topper was made with the Let Your Hair Down Hostess Stamp set, a piece of 4 x 4 1/4" Tempting Turquoise card stock (scored in the middle at 2") and Daffodil Delight patterned DSP from the Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper pack.  We also used the 1 3/4" scallop circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch and the Modern Label Punch for the little tag itself.  I think everyone enjoyed their treats!!

Here's one of the make-n-takes that we offered....

A little kindness sure does go a long way.....

We started this card with a Marina Mist card base, then added a layer of Whisper White card stock (cut at 4 x 5 1/4").  Then, the fun begins (I just love stamping!!) - we stamped the sun and the sentiment in Daffodil Delight, the butterflies in Tangerine Tango and the Dots in Marina Mist - all from the Kinda Eclectic Stamp set.  The butterflies were then punched out with the coordinating Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches.  Finally, we added a couple of Rhinestones to each of the butterflies.  Thanks so much to Connie Babbert for her inspiration on this card!!

And here's another one of the make-n-takes...


It's a gift card holder - perfect for any occasion....

Take a full sheet from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack and score it at 1" on one end and 2 3/4" on the other end, then fold together.  Punch a 2 3/8" Scallop Circle in Lost Lagoon, then stamp the flower/circle in Hello Honey (and punch out with the 1 3/8" circle punch), and the "for you" in Lost Lagoon (and punch out with the 1 1/4" circle punch) - both images are from the Hello There Hostess Stamp Set.  Adhere to the gift card holder and then tie a Linen Thread bow around it to hold it together!

I think they had a lot of fun putting them together!!
