Open House Display Projects, Lucky Stampers, and Favorite Recipes

Happy Friday!!!  Here are some display projects I created for my open house.  This card was made to showcase the new In Color collection.  I love these colors!

I had so much fun making this card.  I got to use one of the fabulous pillow gifts from the Stampin' Up! Grand Vacation.  The What's Up! Stamp Set has become one of my favorites in the new Annual Book. 
Here is a beautiful display that my dear friend Whitley came up with!  She volunteered to come to my studio the day before to decorate my studio. 

I LOVE her idea of displaying the new Blendabilities Markers wrapped together in each color collection with a pretty ribbon!!!  She is so talented!!!
