I had my first Try It Thursday event last night and I loved it. I hope the ladies attending did as well. I had two new people join me and they were wonderful! I love meeting new people that enjoy being creative, especially nice ones that make me laugh. :)
As a treat, I whipped up some sugar cookies and used the new cookie press stamps that will be available starting tomorrow! Don't they look yummy? They are so cute and a blast to make!
This was one of the projects that we made. I love it so much that I'm thinking it might be my Christmas card this year. I was bad and didn't get any sent out last year, so I'm hoping to do a better job this year. (I know, what kind of card maker doesn't send out Christmas cards! Geesh!)
Stamps: Warmest of Wishes, Stitched Stockings
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi, Garden Green
Paper: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green
Tools/Accessories: Stocking builder punch, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, Basic Rhinestones
How cute is this? I never know if people might need a boy or girl card, so I decided to go with pink AND blue and it can be for everyone! :) I love those little booties!
Stamps: Stitched Stockings, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Finally, we made a little gift tag using the Top Note die. I love this one; I was going for a bit more rustic (or maybe manly?) look with it and I think the colors are perfect! Can you picture a gift wrapped nicely in brown paper, tied up with some Early Espresso Baker's Twine, and this little tag? I can and I'm loving the idea!
