Mom’s Night Out: Stampin Up Workshop

Last night was our Mom’s Night Out.  A few moms who met at our children’s school got together last night.  The Mom who organized this get-together has been discussing this idea of us having outings once per month where it’s just the moms with no children.  We would have a project or something planned for that night which we would all enjoy as a night out.  Most of us have Mommy syndrome where we don’t really have a special something of our own and some of us, like me, don’t even know where to begin to have something that’s just for us.  This gives us some direction and something fun to try out.  This gathering was a Stampin Up Card Making Workshop.

One of the moms is a Stampin Up demonstrator so she got some Halloween product in and made some cards as templates.  We simulated the templates with slight modifications to personalize the cards a little.  The simplicity and step-by-step instruction was fabulous for those of us who are not extremely creative, are easily overwhelmed, and/or are new to stamping or card-making.

Throughout the night we made several different cards saving the most complicated-looking one for last.  The last card is a waterfall card.  This is my finished card.  Ain’t it pretty?
Although the night ended at 2am and I was very tired this morning when the kids got up, it was soooo worth it.  What a great night.
Take Care,
D
