We had a GREAT weSTAMP gathering last evening. I get refreshed, rejuvenated, and REALLY REALLY FULL from delicious TREATS! LOL I’m so happy to share with you some things from our get together!

We always start our evening with a make and take. This month Barbara taught us how to make these cute little treat bags out of an envelope. Aren’t they cute and springy? Great job Barbara, they were fun to make.

The theme of our swap was a sketch from the MoJo Monday blog. Here is a picture of the sketch we followed this month.

I ran across Dawn’s tutorial on how to make faux wood grain, so immediately I thought of the stamp set Tool Time. Dawn has an awesome video on how to get this wood grain look. You can find the video HERE.

Recipe:Stamp Set: Totally Tool, Sanded, All HolidaysPaper: More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Naturals Ivory, Always ArtichokeInk: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Going Gray, (For Faux Wood, I used Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, More Mustard, Craft White)Accessories: Non Stampin’ Up Brads, Twill Tape, 1 1/4 & 1 3/8″ Punches, Paper Piercer

3-MN Demo by Pam Pam showed us how to cover a Kit Kat candy bar! It only uses 1 6×6 piece of paper and is an great project for May, when the focus is on Designer Series Paper!!

Door Prize by Ginny
Isn’t this BEAUTIFUL? Ginny made this door prize. It is stackable boxes with a rooster theme. How PERFECT and clever to add a tag using the 2nd Level Hostess set: Rustic Rooster!
