Gosh ~ have I got some real ‘pretties’ to share with you today…………….. today’s project is made using the some of the products from the Sweet Soiree suite from the 2018 Occasions catalog.

September 17th was the date for Cindy’s Corner’s 2nd Stampin; Getaway ~ a whole day of paper crafting fun, where we made card sets, 3D gift items and a cute home decor framed art piece. I will share these projects in coming posts but I wanted to share one of the pillow gifts that each attendee received.
