Saturday Night Stamp Party!

Tonight I spent the evening with my upline, Jen, and my sideline, Sharon, stamping, eating pizza, drinking wine and watching "13 Going on 30" -- all in our PJs. It was such a fun girl's night! We made a photo wallet and decorated an on-board art journal. I didn't have time to take pictures, so I will have to post those tomorrow, but I just want to send a huge shout out to Jen and thank her for a terrific party! Woo Hoo! So much fun!

So, as promised, tonight I'm sharing the last two cards from the Polka Dots & Petals bundle class, as well as the magnet picture frame and the toe that is designed to hold all the projects. As you can see, there is a definite yellow and green theme running through tonight's cards. Both cards also use just a touch of ribbon to add some texture and visual interest.
I think it's pretty cool how much a small bit of knotted ribbon adds to a card. And, of course, Stampin' Up! ribbon is designed to coordinate with our exclusive color families, so there is a ribbon to fit just about every card.

The magnet picture frame is made with two chipboard coasters. The opening for the photo is punched out of the top coaster, which is then covered with designer paper and decorated with a sentiment and embellishments. The bottom coaster is then adhered to the top coaster, leaving the space at the top open so that a photo can be slipped into a frame. A magnet is adhered to the back and, voila, you have a cute little refrigerator ornament!

Last, but certainly not least, is the tote. Decorated with the petals jumbo wheel, designer paper, grosgrain ribbon and brads, this is a very classy way to store your cards.. It also makes a great gift bag if you;d like to make cards for someone as a present. Or how about using this tote to hold favors at a wedding or bridal shower, or a graduation party? The possibilities are endless!

Tune in tomorrow for photos of the projects I stamped tonight, as well as more pictures of the Four Seasons inspiration class projects. In the meantime, hope you're having a fantastic weekend!
