More Open House stuff

Did you know that as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I have access to a "demonstrator only" side of Stampin' Up!'s website? Well, did you also know that there are tons of resources available to us demonstrators, including lots of CASEable ideas? SU! has recently started asking for demonstrator ideas for classes on various themes. One was Valentine's day, and several submissions used the Love You Much bundle. Shauna Mikuliak shared some adorable ideas, and I used her Popcorn Package idea for the gifts I gave those who attended my open house (and I've given some of my surplus to customers who have placed an order recently).

Shauna's were much cuter because she actually used our mini envelopes and had the heart on a card that tucked into the envelope. That idea didn't work out for me for a couple of reasons. First I cut my DSP too small, and then when I went to get my envelopes out of the drawer, I only had 4 mini envelopes, and I knew I needed to make more than 4 gifts. Bummer, but I'm still okay with how my simplified version came out, and my customers loved the idea. As my friend, Jill, said, "Everybody likes popcorn, and everbody can eat it. Whether you're on a diet or not!" Very nicely put, Jill.

Now stay tuned because I had a whole class featuring the Love You Much bundle the other day, and I'll be posting the four projects we made tomorrow.

Sweet wishes!
