I recently was selected to host my first House Party from www.HouseParty.com.  Low and behold the party I was picked for was scrapbooking.  How perfect is this.  I am an avid scrapbooker, and also make cards with all of my scrapbook supplies.  Paper Pumpkin and Stampin’ Up teamed up to create awesome kits for this party.  When I received my House Party kit in the mail I could not believe how big and heavy the box was.

I received 12 guest boxes and only had to invite 10 people to the party.  Obviously, one for me and a spare in case I have a surprise guest.

For being the host to this party I received the following as a thank you:

  • 1 pack of 20 Whisper White Notes and Envelopes
  • 1 Label Love Clear Mount Stamp Set
  • 1 Artisan Label Punch
  • 1 Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Pad
  • 1 Spool of 16” Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon in Daffodil Delight
  • 2 Clear acrylic blocs to use with stamping
  • 1 SNAIL Adhesive and refill

This was a great little thank you gift and I could not be more excited to get more scrapbooking/card making supplies.

The party pack that all the guest received contained the following:

  • 1 pack of 4 cards and envelopes
  • 4 printed cardstocks
  • 12 adhesive stickers
  • 1 stamp pad: cherry cobbler
  • 1 set of stamps: Seriously
  • 4 strings of twine
  • 4 silver buttons

I decided to pre-make a pack so I knew how to assemble the cards at the party so I could help everyone along.  The cards were fairly simple to assemble, but here are the step-by-step of how I made the cards.

  • All of the stamps need to be assembled, so the rubber stamps have to be punched out, then the stickers taken off there backer and adhered to the rubber stamp.

  • The stamps will adhere to the clear acrylic blocks almost like cling wrap or window clings.  They don’t stick, but when they touch they will cling together.  Next ink the stamp to control the amount of ink on the stamp.  Do not put the stamp into the ink or you may get the marks around the stamp when you push it on the paper.

  • Stamp the adhesives before adhering them to the card to prevent smudges or mistakes.  I chose to do the “Happy Birthday to You!” stamp instead of the “Seriously” stamp and used the “you kick booty” stamp.  (When I did a second set of cards I did the “Seriously” and “you kick booty” on the front and used the “Happy Birthday to You!” on the inside of the card.

  • Fold all four cards in half and adhere the printed cardstock by using the double sided tape on the back of the cardstock.  Once that is on the card then put the tag sticker on the card, creating a layered look.

  •  I put the bubble sticker  with the “Happy Birthday to You!” on next and they the “you kick booty” sticker on next.

  • Here is the final product.  The twine needs to be wrapped around the card twice and fed through the button.  I then tied a knot and bow.  I liked the way the card turned out.

When it came time to make the cards at the party, I ended up offering for the guests to use the Love Stamp Set I received as a thank you gift if they wanted instead of the stamps that were provided in each kit.  I decided not to use all the supplies given to me in the  guest kits and deviate, so I thought others might want to do the same.  All in all I think the party was a great success.  I really enjoyed hosting my first House Party and hope to be able to do many more.  If your interested in trying the Paper Pumpkin subscription click here.  You can use the code HOUSEPARTY and get the first two months half off at $9.95/month.  After the first two months it goes to the regular price of $19.95/month.
