It was another fun and successful card making night for the month of July. Even with the busy-ness of the summer, eight ladies came to stamp with me and I enjoyed having the company! I had prepared for up to 15, so I had a LOT of leftover cards to make, but after everyone left I got to stamp the rest of the night away while all of my supplies were already out. I ended up making 15 of the 22 card kits I had left. The rest of them I will make sometime tonight after the kids go down and the hubby and I watch a show.
I was chatting with a friend last night and as I was talking, I realized that being a demonstrator has really made me USE my craft supplies. Many times, we buy things and then never get to use them because we don't have time, or there's many other things to do. But, by planning these 3/$5 nights, it gives me the opportunity to sit down and play with my "toys" and let others do the same without having to make a mess at their own home.
The first 2 cards I CASEd (Copy And Share Everything). I did use retired Designer Series Paper on the first 2 cards because 1) I still have it to use, so why not? and 2) I haven't ordered anything new out of the catalog yet! I'll be taking a peek during the kids' nap time and making my list of things I want for my next couple of events.
