What a great day last Friday was!  I loved getting together with everyone and celebrating the launch of the new 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  Even though I got sick and I had to postpone the Holiday Catalogue Launch Party by a week, most people were still able to attend and want to thank you for your flexibility.  So, what did we get up to?  All guests received a pack of goodies when they arrived, there was the hands-on exploration of new products, creative inspiration, games, prizes, and more!  Here's a small glimpse of our day...

Holiday Catalogue Launch Party

A party is not a party without gifts!  Here are packs of new products that I gave away as spot prizes.  Inside are sheets of the pretty All Is Bright Designer Series Paper, some of the All Is Bright Paper Clips, all wrapped up using the silky Real Red 3/8" Mixed Satin Ribbon...

Holiday Catalogue Launch Party Spot Prizes

Everyone who attended the Holiday Catalogue Launch Party also had multiple chances to add their names to a prize draw, which was drawn at the end of the event.  The winner received the fabulous Beautiful Baubles stamp set and limited-edition Dashing Along Designer Series Paper (from this month's exclusive host promotion), tied with a generous length of 5/8" Striped Burlap Trim, and finished with one of the pretty Sincerely Santa gift tags...

There was also time for creating with two festive projects.  We created a fun Christmas card using the Silver Foil-Edged Cards & Envelopes, Making Christmas Bright Bundle, and the sparkly Black Glittered Organza Ribbon.  This is one layout, if you like symmetrical...

Making Christmas Bright Christmas Card

The background of this card is stamped using the string-of-lights image from the Making Christmas Bright stamp set.  The stamp was aligned at the top of the card, mounted on the Stamparatus, then inked with Frost White Shimmer Paint using a Sponge Dauber, and stamped.  The plate from the Stamparatus was removed, dropped down one hinge, and the stamp inked and stamped again.  This was repeating all the way down the card to create a fun, shimmery background...

The second make-and-take was two sweet Christmas gift tags created using the fabulous new Christmas Traditions Punch Box and All Is Bright Designer Series Paper.  These were finished with decorative foliage using the Sprig Punch, Call Me Clover card stock, and Copper and Merry Merlot Glimmer Paper.  Oh, and the sequins were easily added using the Take Your Pick Tool!
