paper monday: martha stewart paper crafts

11.09.2009
Last week I attended a house party hosted by Vera of My Ten Thousand Wedding. She was lucky enough to receive a box of goodies from Martha Stewart crafts with instructions on how to create a birthday card and a gift box. Martha’s new craft punches were lots of fun to work with... there’s a new set with that allows you to punch all the way around the page for decorative edging and pretty gift tags. Truth be told, our creativity ended up getting the best of us... we each had our own take on the projects instead of following the instructions explicitly (shhh, don’t tell). It’s not often that I spend a weeknight crafting and meeting sweet new people, and I think it could be fun to turn this into something regular. Are any of you readers part of a craft group? If so, I’d love to hear about it...

  1. Cute!!! I am not part of a craft group, but I'd love to be. :) I used to be in a Stampin' Up club that met once a month, but it was a bunch of ladies that I didn't know and you had to spend so much $$ on product each time. I'd much prefer something that is not centered around a brand.

    How does your club work? :)
