Stampin' Up! New Catalog Party

 could finally share our new catalog with friends Monday so I invited them over for a little wine & cheese, sweet red grapes & merlot-flavored chocolate cupcakes.  Oh my gosh the cupcake batter was sooo good!  

Good eats, good wine, good friends = a very good time!.

My party theme was inspired by items I found on Pinterest, of course.  I made wine glass charms and coasters, food flags for the three different cheeses.  

I also wanted to create a blackboard effect using Basic Black cardstock and our White Stampin' Chalk Marker.  I had never really shared Stampin' Up's!
Statement of the Heart before so this would be the perfect time.   I chose my pretty crystal picture frame to house it and decorated it with garlands of black, gold & the new In-colors.   

This year my goal was to keep it simple and use what I already had.  I'm so proud of myself - I did just that.
