Stampin’ Up! parties are always a lot of fun but it seemed like Sunday’s party goers where having so much fun that no one wanted to leave.  There was lots of chatting and laughter but it looks like I only caught the serious at work moments.  🙂

This is Jill, my hostess and her friend Debbie.  Jill opened her home to her friends and I for an afternoon of fun and earned hostess rewards (free products of her choice) all at the same time. Both Stampin’ Up! and I love our hostesses!

Looks like more serious work on the other side of the table with Monica and Linda. 🙂

At Jill’s request we made a Birthday set.  A card and treat holder to match.  The card uses the Stripes Embossing Folder and three of my favorite punches…the Decorative Label and the two sizes of butterflies.

The treat holder is quick and easy.  It’s a 2 3/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Island Indigo card stock that is scored at 3 3/4″ and 4 3/4″.  You can make 3 of them with one piece of card stock.  I decided to close the top with a piece of ribbon…and yes…it’s another FREEBIE  in the Sale-a-bration catalog with a $50 order as is the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper.

This treat holder fits a fun size snack.  My favorite…M&Ms

Now let me share that at the workshop when I was demonstrating the card I accidentally put the adhesive on the wrong side of the Designer Series Paper.  As I told them…not to worry just a slightly different look.
