She left us each cute little "pillow gifts" and had daily make-and-takes, that made the whole weekend a blast!
I also go SOOO much done that weekend.
|One of the day's pillow gifts- this was filled with buttons!|
|Another pillow gift: this adorable little box had candy in it. (Not pictured- the last day's pillow gift- ADORABLE Mini coffee cups)|
I also created a LOT of cards to increase my card stash, which was getting WAY low. These cards are all designs I created myself, for various occasions.
|One of the cards I created during the getaway, with a new set I got from my mom. This stamp set was also part of a swap with my mom- I had to use the stamp set for a card to give to her and one for myself.|
|Detail shot- this is one of my favorite cards, not gonna lie!|
|The "Smile" was a card in one of my Project Life packs. Stamp soda bottle- Stampin Up!|
|The monkey and congratulations are Stampin Up!|
|This was also for the swap with my mom- she gives me something I have to use in a card- I make one card for her, one for myself. She gave me the cute little baby clothesline diecut and the large stamped image.The hello baby sentiment is Stampin Up!|
|One of my other favorite cards I created during this getaway. The celebrate a sweet birthday sentiment tag is Stampin Up! (stamped it on pink, then stamped again on white and just cut the white oval out).|

|Happy Birthday sentiment and bicycle- Stampin Up! as well as butterfly punch.|
|And yes, I started on some Christmas cards. I am aiming to get more created before December, if I can help it.|
So, this past weekend, after an afternoon of "Once Upon a Time at Barnes & Nobles" event, dressed as storybook characters, a few friends came over and we got crafty with it. (*insert Will Smith's "Getting Jiggy With It" background music, lol)
Here are some of the cards we created over the weekend (each of the gals did slightly different variations of each card, using different colors and patterns of their choice, and on the one card- different sentiments/images).
|I took what I learned in the one class, and recreated it with different colors!|
|I used a mix of washi tape, 2 different stamp sets by Papertrey Inks, and embossing folder to make this cutie.|
|Took my previous card I created during the getaway and recreated it with different colors and a different cake setup.|
|Composition book update!|
|Another variation of that one card.|
|Just used up some of the scraps to make this simple manly b-day card.|
|same setup as the one card, just different colors.|
*fingers crossed I can get some crafting in later this weekend*
