Open House Success

My new catalog open house was Saturday and I felt it went really well. It was so nice to see some of the ladies that I hadn't seen in a few weeks. I sold some used sets to clear out space on my shelves for more goodies and I think they liked the projects. They did the Sock Monkey card I already showed you, and they did this simple and easy card that showcased the Heard from the Heart set (I LOVE this set and it is on sale, I LOVE that even more!!). My guests were even able to use the new scallop edge punch! I wanted something simple that didn't need a lot of "stuff" or a lot of work. I think this fits the bill. The background is stamped with the big swirl from Doodle This, otherwise the only other stamping is the words. I can't wait to get all the new goodies I ordered from the open house, like A Rose is a Rose, Crazy for Cupcakes, Bella Rose paper, and more! So tell me, what are some of your favorite new things from the new Stampin' Up! catalog???

Definitely the sock monkey for me!!!! That will be the first thing on my list at club this year!! Woohoo!! I also liked the cupcake thank you one (can't remember the name), but it's pretty limited to birthday thank you's. I kind of wish that it was more universal so that we could use it for Christmas too! It's such a cute idea!!

This is SO pretty IRL. It didn't need a main image since the sentiment looks so nice. Loved it!
