What you missed...

If you missed our Launch Day, you missed a great day out!  Here are the projects we made, in no particular order:

This was designed by the lovely Rebecca O'Gorman, and it uses the NEW  Flower punch, and a new stamp, called For You. 

This one was designed by me, and it uses the new Party This Way set.  

Bec's work again, with the new baby Bundle set and Jumbo Wheel, Baby Tees.  It was a little tricky - it is a suspension card, but heaps of fun.  

Mine again, this time using Artistic Etchings in a collage.  I love the Vintage look this stamp set gives!

Steph's work, using the Polka Dot Embossing folder (we inked up the folder, then ran it through the Big Shot to get this cool polka dot DSP effect!) using the new Contempo Christmas set and matching punch.

If it is pink, it must be Linda's!  This card used the divine Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, and the Friends Never Fade stamp set.

Linda called this card the "Underbelly" male card, because of the dark colours.  The greeting was heat embossed using black embossing powder, which some people had never tried before.  They were experts after this!

Finally, Steph's pretty card using Printed Petals and the greeting from Party This Way.  The little label the greeting was stamped on is actually made from the scalloped oval punch.  There is a new punch that looks similar called the Modern Label Punch, but our new orders had not arrived in time to use it at the Launch.

Apologies for the photos - left it too late in the day to take them in good light - but as you can see, there was something for everyone!

We had a fun day, at the scenic Virginia Golf Club, with door prizes, a raffle and a mega-huge sale of our retired stamps and accessories.   We are planning to have another big day in a few months to tie in with the Summer Mini (which will be here in December I think?), so I'll keep you posted about that.

In the meantime, I have scheduled a class this Thursday - but that will depend on whether my order of new products arrives tomorrow!  If not, we'll move it back a week.  The poor Warehouse people who pack our orders are working overtime trying to keep up with the rush of orders since the new Catty started, so it is taking a little longer than usual for my packages to arrive.
