Tuesday night was our monthly weSTAMP meeting and swap at the home of Lorri Heiling. We changed things up a little this month celebrating this new stamp set, Sweet Scoops ... available for purchase in the upcoming Summer Mini Catalog. A few us received this stamp set free as an incentive from Stampin' Up! in January. Instead of our monthly meeting we made these four Make 'n Take projects and ate homemade ice cream, courtesy of Lorri Heiling. Everyone brought a favorite topping.

This first Make 'n Take project is by Barbara Welch. Barabara had the prettiest bow on her original, and I was a little bow challenged that evening ...This next Make 'n Take is by Melissa Sunde ...
Leave it to the mega-creative Lorri Heiling to design this gift set for us to make - an ice cream bowl, spoon & card ...
Lorri's card sample had the orange scoop covered in Crystal Effects with a really cool glossy appearance. (Another area that challenged me that night!) ...
