I normally do 2 small hostess nights a year, but this year, I wanted to team up with my MOOvelous Stampers and have them bring their hostesses for a really big shindig!  We rented Norlo Park and invited almost 40 folks to join us for dinner/dessert, make n takes, door prizes, new product displays and…. this group was the first to see the new catalog and take home their very own copy!  It was a success and we are so very grateful for our hosts/hostesses, you are the reason we can do what we love!

Here is what we created:


Muriel’s card- Build a Birthday set


My card- Sprinkles of Life (our new Ronald McDonald House Charity set)


Heather’s bookmark (Layered alphabet)

We all used a combination of our new In Colors:  Delightful Dijon, Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron.

Many of you asked for the potato soup recipe…..here ya go!

1 family size can of cream of chicken

1 lg package of cubed hasbrowns

1 8 oz package of cream cheese (softened)

28 oz of chicken broth

1/2 onion chopped


1 lb bacon crumbled


Mix soup and cream cheese with handmixer, just to help combine it….add all ingredients except bacon.  Crockpot on low for 5 hours.  Stir in 1/2 of the bacon.  Garnish with remaining bacon, green onions, shredded cheese or sour cream….anything goes!


We had a wonderful time and can’t wait to plan our next one!  Want to join us?  It’s so easy…..simply host a private stampin’ party for you and your friends OR join my stamp club!  You’re automatically in!!!


Thank you for attending!  If you had rsvp’d and could not make it, I have a catalog and a to go kit for you!
