Our weSTAMP group met last night. We were BUZZING because it has been a month and a half since we last met, due to the holidays. We had such a great evening, and it was so nice to see everyone again.

No meeting is held without some awesome treats. Look at what PAM made! They are almost too pretty to eat, and they almost look like “stamping style” cupcakes! They were as yummy as they look, too! Thanks Pam, for a wonderful snack!

Diana provided the make and take. She taught us how to make a “Waterfall” card. These are the neatest cards because when you pull down on the bottom part, the boxes you see flip up. It is an interactive card! I went to SCS and found a tutorial on how to make these. It can be found HERE. THANK YOU DIANA, for providing a beautiful card! Here is a picture of the one I made, showcasing a stamp set (Polka Dot Punches) from the Sale a Bration brochure.

Last but not least, the door prize! Nancy made this CUTE bundle of Valentine treats! Tammy was the LUCKY WINNER!! Isn’t it darling? She got a mailbox tin to decorate (with treats inside), an altered candy heart box with candy hearts inside, a photo holder, a paper-clip bookmark, PINK M&M’s, and a darling magazine holder with some small cards inside. You can find the directions for the magazine holder and cards on Nancy’s blog, iSTAMP.
