Downline Party

A week ago, I hosted our Downline Holiday Potluck. We had a such a fun time, but that’s no surprise because we always do when we get together. These ladies are wonderful friends and I love that we have Stampin Up in common. 

For our party, I decorate my studio including putting up a gold tree with glass ornaments and lights. We’ve got to have something to put our presents under.

After the business part of our Downline Meeting, we worked on one of my favorite service projects, making treats for our local Ronald MacDonald House. We try to do this for most of the major Holidays. We made around 35 treats this time. Poli usually designs them and then we provide the candy for the treats. Then we get together and make them. These are the treats we made this time. It uses the curvy keepsake thinlets die and two different snowflake dies. The paper is all Stampin Up, some retired, some current. And then of course, we had our Potluck. This is the amazing cake that Lyndi brought. It was so cute that it was tough to cut into it. It was absolutely adorable. And it tasted pretty darn good too!We usually exchange gifts. This is one of the items that I made for the ladies that attended. The second item was the Merry wreath that I shared last week, which you can see here. Our gift bags come in so handy. Right now we have white and gold striped gift bags available for purchase. I dug these Kraft gift bags our of my retired stash. The pattern paper is the Dashing Along paper that is available for purchase right now (see details below). And I had these note pads made by a printing company online. I used the flower graphic that you see on the Stampin Up website and worked it into this. I love those gorgeous watercolor flowers. I hope the ladies enjoy their notepads. Well, if you weren’t here, you missed a fun party with amazing friends and food. Doesn’t this look like something you’d want to do? Then you need to contact me asap. Stampin Up will be having an amazing sign up special starting January 3rd and you aren’t going to want to miss this. We always welcome guests to our Downline Meeting that want to check out our Group and see if it’s a good fit. I’m happy to answer any questions you have about Stampin Up and what it can do for you. 

Oh my goodness! Guess what’s now available. It’s a tote bag for your Stamparatus. And it is beautiful. There is plenty of pockets inside to hold your Stamparatus, some extra plates, and your grid paper. You are going to love this tote bag. This bag will be available now and it’s $29 (item #149695). If you’ve been waiting to purchase the Stamparatus until the tote was available, you can buy both as a bundle for $78 (item #151961).

Good news! Since we had several items in the Holiday Catalog sell out much quicker than anticipated, Stampin Up brought back the Dashing Along Pattern Paper. Available while supplies last. Get it while you can. Item #149903.
