New Catalog Party

The start of the new catalog year is always fun and exciting! My favorite part (besides getting NEW stuff!) is getting together with my stampin' friends to look over the new catalog and play with new goodies. I had my Catalog Pick Up Party yesterday (rescheduled from original date due to illness) and had so much fun visiting, talking about our new favorite offerings in the catalog, snacking and of course stamping! Thanks to everyone who came!

Of course the star of the party was the new catalog! Everyone received the catalog at 1/2 off or FREE if they placed an order. I made everyone a magnetic bookmark using the newest In Colors and the Pennant Parade stamps set. See the lacy scalloped circle? That is one of the shapes on the new Perfect Pennants Bigz Die. I use mine to hold my spot on the colors pages...which it seems I'm always needing to reference. It also makes it easier to read the chart.
I had a make & take ready for everyone...also using the latest In Colors and the adorable Hello Blossoms stamp.
Here are a few of the fruit and yogurt parfaits I made for our treat. I must say they were pretty yummy!
What's a party without prizes? And the winners are....
Roberta was excited to select the Sweet Summer set from my prize basket. Mary received Botanical Blooms for her online order and Julie was not here at the time of the not sure what stamp set she will choose. Thanks again ladies...I hope you had as much fun as I did!

Have a wonderful & safe holiday weekend everybody!

Looks like you all had a great time and I LOVE the In Color bookmarks....almost as pretty as the parfaits with the pennant flags!
