Baby Shower Gifts

I gave all of my co-workers the cute little nugget trays for one of their Christmas treats... my friend Ami loved them so much she asked if I would make her 50 for her upcoming Baby Shower.  I was so excited to help her out!  This is a preview of the real thing.  Ami and I will be assembling these cute little treats together on Friday.  I made a few examples to show her and here they are:


I will update this post later to include the supplies I used!  :)  Her colors are green and yellow since she is not finding out the sex of the baby (although I personally think she is having a girl!!!  LOL).  I love the little turtle tag!!!

Easy Events Made Easier

Well... I have put away my Christmas stamps (mostly) and pulled out my supplies I need for my January class.  I will be using Easy Events to launch the Sale-a-bration (SAB) kick-off.  SAB is an awesome offer from Stampin' Up! to earn free stamp sets, accessories, etc... FREE with every $50 purchase (before tax and shipping).  

Easy Events is my new favorite stamp set.  It is a set of 8 stamps for every event.  Birthday, baby, wedding, thank you, belated birthday, Christmas, and two all-occasion stamps.  A lot of people are hesitate to start stamping because of the cost.  This stamp set makes it easy to prove them wrong!  I made 8 cards, using two different color families of card stock, 5 markers, one ink pad and the FREE SAB ribbon and brads.



Class Details:  January 16th at 10am OR January 27th at 4:30pm  
$20 includes all supplies EXCEPT adhesive!
AND
Receive $10 credit toward any SU! purchase when you spend $25
