weSTAMP Christmas Party

I enjoyed a wonderful evening with 23 other stampers on Tuesday, December 7th at the home of Lorri Heiling. Everyone brought something delicious to eat and Rachele created an awesome Make & Take project for us to make. Lorri read a story that she wrote entitled "Twas the Day Before My Stampin' Up! Preorder Came", you can see her blog post HERE for the entire poem. So cute!! She read this story during our gift exchange.

Here is the Make & Take project Rachele designed....isn't this the most adorable house!!

Below is the gift I made for the gift exchange, it is a 8 x 8 framed Christmas collage using Stampin' Up! stamps, cardstock, DSP, and accessories.

Here is the wonderful gift I received, made by Patti, a candle tray with 3 candles wrapped in embossed metal sheeting.

I gave one of these to each weSTAMPer that attended the party, inside I put some candy and placed a hand-stamped tag on the top. (The little favor boxes were from Target. I found them in my Christmas stash)

These homemade cookies were from Lorri & Nancy for each of the weSTAMPer's, they were so yummy!! Lorri got the recipe for these Homemade Oreo Cookies HERE.

And finally, here is Lorri (she is so adorable to pose for a picture) at the end of the party modeling her apron and cupcake oven mitt, a gift to her made by Terri, using the Candy Cane Fabric from Stampin' Up! Isn't this the cutest idea!

I am so glad you stopped by today. I will continue to post things from the month of December until I get caught up.

Live, Laugh, Love and STAMP!
