weSTAMP JUNE MEETING & SWAP

Last night, our weSTAMP Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Group met at the home of Lorri Heiling for our monthly meeting and swap. What an awesome group of talented women!

Here is the Make 'n Take project we made, provided by Lorri Heiling. It cases Jen Balcer's Gift Card Holder with tutorial on SCS found HERE. We used the Rock 'n Roll technique on the butterfly.

The gift card is meant to be placed inside the small white paper bag. Our swap theme this month was Pocket Cards. Here are the swapped projects ...
by Lorri Heiling ... by Mauna Kirkham ... by Terri Guymon ... by Diana Knight ...
by Adriana Gray ... by Ginny Schembri ...
by Pam Wood ... by me with recipe under photo ...
RECIPE
Stamps: Think Happy Thoughts
Paper: Cutie Pie DP, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Purely Pomegranate, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Purely Pomegranate Classic Ink Pad
Embellishments: Pewter Jumbo Eyelet, Pewter Build-A-Brad, Purely Pomegranate Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon

Supplies: Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots, Dinner Plate for creating the top curve

At one point in our meeting, we played a game that tested our knowledge of names of Stampin' Around Wheels in preparation for next month's swap theme ... using Wheels or Background Stamps. Lorri Heiling provided the prize for the winner, Ginny Schembri who is the only one that STUDIED (she got all of them correct except TWO ... out of 57!!!!). WAY TO GO, Ginny !!!!

Lorri's prize couldn't have been more adorable ... a Tart & Tangy Lemon themed gift complete with a card that looks like a glass of lemonade (vellum for the frosted glass look!), lemonade mix with tag, and Lemon Heads candies with stamped bag topper. CUTE, CUTE, CUTE !!!!! You can see more details about Lorri's projects from this evening on her blog HERE.
Every month, we draw for a door prize. The person that won the door prize last month, creates the door prize for this month. Lorri Heiling created this amazing project ... a stationary gift. Pam Wood was the lucky winner ... AGAIN !!!! Pam is the lucky one in our group, winning the door prize three times!
