Open House projects





These were the make-n-takes at my new catalog open house this past weekend. The elephant card was a case from someone but I can't remember who. If it was you let me know and I will be sure to give you proper credit. I love the simple design but yet it's still so cute!

The second card was one I whipped up really quickly. My open house started on Friday but I didn't like my second make-n-take so I scrapped it. Then my supply order came with new Sale-a-bration stamp sets(demonstrators can pre-order these a monthy early!). I grabbed Beate's weekend sketch above and came up quickly with this card using the So Many Scallops Sale-a-bration stamp set. This set is so fun! Every stamp in this set works with the circle scallop punch! Customers, your Sale-a-bration brochure should hit your mailbox towards the end of January. Sale-a-bration runs from Feb.1 through March 15. Contact me at krhopperstad@juno.com to book your party!

Thanks to everyone who came to my open house! I had about 30 people come through. It's always fun to see everyone again after the holidays.
