Every month I have an Inspiration Night with my wonderful Stamped With Aloha team. Due to my stamp room remodel I had asked my downline Jodi if she would be willing to coordinate our May gathering. Jodi agreed to help and soon after I saw the project she planned to share. I got so excited because EVERYTHING Jodi creates is adorable. Jodi loves "critters" so we had a Critter themed inspiration night. Here is the project she shared.
All of these adorable little cards had matching handmade envelopes and featured items from our A Little Foxy Suite. Each guest coming to Inspiration Night received a sampler of the A Little Foxy Designer Series paper so they could choose the pattern of their choice to create matching envelopes.
Jodi shared with everyone how to use our amazing envelope punch board. This is the tool we used to create the fun envelopes that went with these adorable cards.
The envelopes were all so fun and pretty and the perfect match to the cute cards. Let's take a closer look at the cards.
Fox and friends is one of Jodi's favorites because it has critters in it of course. The first two cards featured this adorable fox and each guest was able to choose which sentiment they wanted to put on the cards.
The next card featured this adorable punch art girl. It was fun to see all the different variations of hair people would give her as they created their cards. The words on these two cards came from the stamp set, Teeny Tiny Wishes.
These cute all occasion cards featured a lovable raccoon who also adorned the front of the case that all the cards and envelopes fit into,
I was so appreciative to Jodi for taking on this project and prepping the almost 40 packets that had to be ready for everyone who came. I originally intended on helping her because I thought when I asked her the only complication I had going on was my stamp room construction. The added unexpected health challenge I'm currently facing was not apart of what I had planned. However, I saw God's faithfulness once again in having Jodi in charge of Inspiration Night because it would have been almost impossible for me to pull it off.
Shorty after receiving my breast cancer diagnosis, I learned that the same day as Inspiration Night I would be scheduled to meet the surgeon to discuss plans for my treatment. I was able to go to this appointment and then come to Inspiration Night and just enjoy the love and encouragement from my wonderful downline who made me feel so special.
As everyone entered, some were surprised to see me there. I was greeted with hugs and lots of love and many words of encouragement. Several of these women shared their own stories of difficulties they had been through. I was so touched by their transparency and caring hearts.
Just being with everyone and watching them have such a good time creating this adorable project lifted my spirits and made me feel better.
And then there was these two amazing ladies, Jodi and Norine who insisted that they run next months Inspiration Night too so I wouldn't have to worry about it. They sat and reviewed the new catalog looking for what products they would like to feature in June.
I feel so blessed to have such amazing sisters in my life.
I am so grateful to Jodi for sharing her amazing project with us. If you would like to know how to make this adorable project Jodi has really detailed information on her blog, The Stamping Owl. Click the link to see Jodi's post and you will find all the measurements and supplies you need.
Even though my circumstances are challenging at the moment, I am grateful to God for showing me that He is in control. I had so much peace knowing Jodi had Inspiration Night covered so I could just focus on dealing with my unexpected circumstances. This is just another sign of how God was showing me that He is in control and I can rest in Him.
