Last month I had my DOstamperSTARS quarterly Camp-a-Rama! I generally meet monthly with my DOstamperSTARS group. But quarterly, we have a larger event, more projects, food, fun, games and MORE!
This quarter I themed it up with Stampin' Up!'s Tropical Party theme (from the 2010 Summer Mini Catalog). Plus we tried out a new venue and it was awesome.
Here's some of the fun at our Tropical Party!
First up is Shelley! She was a huge part of the success of this event. Not only did she provide us with an awesome place to meet, but she prepared dinner for us!!! I told her the theme for our get-together and let her have at it. I trusted her completely!
And she came through with flying colors! Look at what she came up with: Hawaiin Chicken Salad (with her homemade dressing), Cheese-filled Breadstick, Fruit-topped Cheesecake and a refreshing tropical punch. Can you say "Yummy"? It blew everyone away. We all felt so special. THANK YOU SO MUCH SHELLEY!
Then on to some games. We play a quick game to break up into teams. Then on to a "Minute to Win it" game. Do you watch that show? My husband and I stumbled upon it while channel surfing one day and it instantly grabbed our attention.
Each team had to get M & M's into their cup with only a straw. Man - they were fast!!
Here's the winning team (Stephanie, Shelley & Jan) !!! Each receiving a hostess stamp set!
Then, on to some stamping!!
Here's Gayle, Jenny & Jessica working on a Bitty Box project (which I don't have a picture of). But here's the matching candle holder...
FLOWER FOLDS TEA LIGHT HOLDERS
These AWESOME candle holders are made with "flashing material" using the Big Shot and Flower Folds Die (#115970). You can pick up flashing at any home improvement store.
Talk about a quick project - cut the flashing with the Flower Folds Die. The die has four flower sizes. I used the two middle-sized flowers. Adhere them together with Mini Glue Dots. Then attach the tea light with a Pop-up Glue Dot (I like to flatten and stretch the pop up glue dot out to get more coverage) and voila...you're done. I bet you can make one in under a minute!!!
Here's Stephanie, Jan and Shelley making their Watercolor Trio projects.
This card, matching post-it note holder and tea bag holder were designed by one of my downline, Laurie Zoellmer. Didn't she do a great job? Thanks Laurie!!
Our newest DOstamperSTAR, Paula!
Here's Jenny Maetzold (for more about Jenny see here)
Here's Sue working on the Elements Of Style Gift Pack I shared last week
The last card we made was a Coconut Drink Card. If you're interested in how to make the Coconut Drink (which is made with Big Shot Dies) - you can watch my video.
See Coconut Drink Card Video for detailed instructions.
