This past weekend was the Hawaii Women Expo. My group Stamped With Aloha had a booth there again this year. Our goals for this event was to promote a Cookie Cutter Christmas Class, to share about the Paper Pumpkin BOGO special offer, to demonstrate our favorite products from the Holiday Catalog and to raise money for the Hawaii Food Bank by selling hand stamped cards.
For our live demonstrations we all chose something in the catalog that we loved the most.
I chose to demonstrate my favorite Holiday Catalog Bundle which just happens to be Cookie Cutter Christmas. I shared how simple it was to create mini clips that could be easily converted to gift tags, magnets or toppers for a gift bag or party favor.
Each of these are created with a base of 1 3/4 x 2 3/4 of colored card stock and then layered with a 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 piece of Whisper White card stock. After adhering the Cookie Cutter image I turned each card over and applied a wooden clothepin to the middle with mini glue dots. For these on this board I also attached a magnet strip.
My favorite of these clips of course is the hula girl. She is so sweet and something that I will be able to use on projects far beyond the Holiday season. It was fun to see the reaction to all the actual hula dancers who stopped by the booth at the Expo and admired this cute little punch art hula girl.
I also had a sample that featured how cute this little clip would be on the top of a cello candy bag.
Here is what the back looks like.
In addition to showing these fun Christmas samples I also had a board to display some samples I made with the Cookie Cutter Halloween set which is equally adorable.
The event was a success due to the fact that I have such a fabulous group of stampin' sisters who worked so hard to put everything together.
In this photo below Eve is pointing to our display that features the Paper Pumpkin BOGO offer. Did you know that if you are a first time subscriber and you go to www.mypaperpumpkin.com to join before October 10, you can subscribe and get your second month FREE? Just be sure to indicate me as your demonstrator when you join.
Paper Pumpkin is an awesome subscription that comes in the mail monthly complete with projects that are all planned out for you to assemble, all you need is adhesive. A subscription makes a great gift for a friend or even for yourself. This is also great as an activity for kids who love to craft or for people who like to craft but have limited time and are looking for an organized creative escape! These kits also work great for friends, relatives to have an excuse to get together and create! They make for a great Mom and Me activitity too.
We sure had a great time at the expo. Over the three days we sold over 70 cards, shared our passion for creativity, inspired people with our live demonstrations and made many new friends.
There were also lots of hugs for all our friends old and new who came to visit us over the three days we were there.
I loved this experience. I love working with these amazing women and hope and pray that all the new friends they met over the weekend will soon be joining one of their stampin' events in the near future.

Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing some simple ideas for the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set. I'm sure this will be the first of many posts I will share about this bundle because it truly is my favorite.
The best part about these Cookies is that they are Extra Sweet but Zero in Calories! Those are the very best kind so I plan on making and sharing plenty!!!
