getting together for Lunch

Friday a few members of my Stampin' Family the New England StampINKers, got together for lunch at my upline Lynn's house.

We had such a good time winding down and relaxing after a stressful holiday season!  Laughing, stampin' and just catching up!  Pictured below from left to right - Lynn Thieret, Karen Gagnon, Lisa Fuller, me & Michele LaCerda.
 Over the past two months our group of stampin' friends has been touched by the nasty diagnosis of breast cancer.  Lisa found these cute tool belts at Lowes and so we of course had to decorate them with our own Stampin' Up! style!  Nothing can go un-embellished in our world.

Stampin' Up! has this beautiful fabric that matches our designer papers.  I just happened to have a little laying around waiting to be used!
So Lisa and I cut out some flowers and butterfiles from the Springtime Vintage fabric (from last spring's mini catalog) and the Twitterpated fabric from this year's spring catalog.  I also cut the same flowers from light weight iron on interfacing and we ironed those to the back of each layer.  We then added some buttons and sewed the flower layers together.

We used a hot glue gun to attach the flowers and butterflies to the tool belts.  Pictured to the left is a flower and butterflies cut from the Springtime Vintage designer fabric.  Below is the Twitterpated fabric from this year's spring mini catalog.

 I just love these.  What a great way to embellish a tool belt!!

Happy Stampin'!
