Open House a Success!

I had a good turnout for my Open House. Margarethe and Melodye came and they invited Sandy, whom I haven't seen in years and she brought a friend, Debborah. Jennifer, a new customer was able to come, so I got to meet her for the first time. She is the daughter of a friend of a friend and just recently moved here. Things went well, even though I was in major disorganized mode. I had things out, but never got a chance to pre-cut paper, but it gave everyone a chance to pick their own color combos from the colors I had out. I cut the colors desired after they stamped. Since the cards were very basic, it was easy to do.

These are the Attendance Gifts I gave them. I got the instructions for them here.

They had an assortment of colors to chose from.

They got to play with the Blendabilities I have and did very well with them. They made one card using them and the Blended Bloom and Sassy Salutations stamp sets. We also made a card using the Work of Art stamp set and some of the new 2014-'16 In Colors. Here are the samples I made to show them what we were doing. The zig-zag card I just made while they were stamping to show them how easy it was to line it up, even without the Stamp-a-ma-jig. A few did their own thing with the Work of Art set, so that was great to see. I wish I'd taken pictures of theirs.
