A Weekend Wedding

I have been away for a short while spending time with family but I’m back now.   Last Wednesday Kyle flew home so he could come with us to a family wedding.  Thursday we left and drove to the mountains up in the very north east corner of Georgia.  Greg’s first cousins’ daughter was getting married on Saturday and the weekend was full of family time.  Thursday night a Bar-b-que at the lake house, Friday night a party at a marina on the lake, and then Saturday was the wedding and reception at one of the country clubs overlooking the lakes.  The views everywhere were just beautiful!  We spent lots of time with cousins, aunts, uncles, more cousins, second cousins, grandparents, etc.  Plus we met the grooms family – with what seemed like an equal amount of cousins…  And then Sunday driving back home we stopped and spent the afternoon with my family – my parents, brother, niece and nephew.  Monday I took Kyle back to the airport to fly back to San Francisco.  I think he had a worthwhile trip seeing almost every relative in one quick trip home!

There was a little Stampin’ Up! included in the weekend.  First off I went up to the lake house and spent a day with Jan a few weeks ago – we made Hospitality/welcome bags that would be in all the guest rooms when they arrived for the weekend.

welcome-bag-partsWe cut tags from Very Vanilla card stock using the Chalk Talk framelits and stamped “welcome” from a retired stamp set on each tag using Early Espresso ink.  Then tied Gold Baker’s Twine on each tag.   We cut the Early Espresso scalloped tulle (on the clearance rack) to tie on the handle – then the welcome tag was tied on to it.

On the front of each bag I created a name and date piece in My Digital Studio and then printed it on Very Vanilla card stock.  Each piece was cut to size and the top was cut with one of the edgelits and the Big Shot.  Those were all glued to a piece of Old Olive card stock and then glued to the front of each bag.


I also made a sign to sit by the guest book – I used My Digital Studio and printed it on Very Vanilla card stock.  I used the Fast Fuse adhesive and attached it to a think piece of card board so that it would stand up on the plate stand.  I tied a piece of the Early Espresso Tulle to the stand.


And here are a few other photos I thought I would share –

Monday was a busy day

Well Monday turned out to be a busy day!  Right after I finished my blog post yesterday I left the house – met my friend Diane – and then headed to lunch with a few other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators to be part of a Focus Group.  We were treated to a delicious lunch – family style at Maggianno’s – and discussed our topic.  I think when it was all said and done we were there for about 3 hours.  Diane and I walked around the mall – the restaurant is attached to the mall.  And slowly made our way over to the pizza place were we were meeting 23 other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators for dinner.  That was fun!


Following dinner we headed to the movie theater and waited patiently for the Stampin’ Up! Catalog Premiere!  I believe there were about 150 of us in this theater but total across the country there were over 7600 demonstrators.  We were all ready to watch a live-streaming video of the new annual catalog premiere.   I thought it was a great event and an exciting way to introduce the Stampin’ Up! catalog.  I sure hope that Stampin’ Up! does this again.


We were there for 2-1/2 hours as the Stampin’ Up! staff showed us the new catalog, new stamp sets and products and made us laugh.  They were live in California.  As we left we got our brand new 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up! Annual catalog!!  Plus a brand new stamp set!  And a few people even won prize patrols.  One of my downline Cindy won the first prize patrol – so exciting!  And I can show you the front of the catalog!  Are you ready?

Tell Me Tuesday – 12/31/13

Can you believe it’s the last day of 2013?  Another year has come and gone – wow. I missed some days posting to my blog – shortly after Christmas Kyle got sick, then I got sick – I think a stomach bug.  Today I’m feeling pretty good and trying to get some things done.  Ryan had his wisdom teeth out right before Christmas (on Monday) and I took him back for a check up today and all was good.  And then I booked flights for Kyle and I to go to San Francisco in January to look at places for him to live.  He will be moving out there in February – I’m not sure I’m ready for that but I can’t keep it from happening either.  I’m very grateful that he has this opportunity and I know he will enjoy his first job with Facebook.
