I returned home from the Stampin' Up! Grand Vacation yesterday and today was my monthly Inspiration Night. I knew it would be a difficult one for me to run since I would be jet lagged, so prior to leaving I invited Jodi to help me with project designing and running the meeting. Since our theme was critters, Jodi was the perfect choice since critter cards are kind of her specialty.
I was able to attend just the first half of the meeting. Although severely jet lagged and a little under the weather I was happy to be there to see everyones smiling faces. I checked everyone in, did some recognition and sharing and then turned it over to Jodi. She did an outstanding job sharing the projects she designed.
The projects included one folder and four cards. They all featured school house designer paper and critters created with the Playful Pals stamp set. Everyone who attended received a sampler packet of the School House Designer Paper.
Since we were featuring School House Designer Paper I used this paper as well as some other retiring products to make my TOP TEN recognition cards. Since the Foxy Friends was one of my pillow gifts on the cruise I was able to incorporate it into this recognition card.
Now lets take a closer look at the evenings make and take projects created by Jodi.
Card one was this cute long eared bunny thank you card.
Project two was a gift card holder that featured an owl which is Jodi's favorite critter.
This would be a great card to use when giving a gift card to a graduate.
These ladies are laughing because I took the photo before Ralene could add the pupils to her owls eyes!
The next project was a folder.
The folder featured an adorable mouse with a red heart accent.
Inside the folder were two adorable mouse cards.
One had a bright and sunny sunflower and one had balloons that were cleverly attached to the mouses tail.
I was so glad I was able to be there to see everyones reaction to Jodi's projects. Also, I just missed everyone since I had been gone for awhile and was anxious to at least say hello and share a bit about my trip.
I sure love these ladies and was glad I was able to be there for at least part of the gathering tonight. I was also very grateful to Eve and Zeny who helped me during the day to do some last minute preparations.
I am so blessed to have such a wonderful team that are filled with the aloha spirit.
Now time to get some rest and get caught up cause in just a few more hours our new catalog will officially be launched. I am VERY excited cause I love the new products and can't wait to put in my first order.
I hope you enjoyed these critter projects. Although the School House paper is discontinued the Playful Pals stamp set is still available for purchase. I hope you were inspired by seeing how you can use this fun stamp set to make the most adorable critters.
A special thank you again to Jodi for all her hard work. If you'd like to see more information regarding these projects check out Jodi's awesome blog, The Stamping Owl.
