 I have LOTS to celebrate this Stampin' Up! year and I there was no better way than to share it with my customers, friends and downline.  I hosted a "Stamp & Celebrate" party last Friday. Everyone got a package of pearls and Tea Lace Paper Doilies.  I centered all four projects around those two accessories. I'll be sharing them a little at a time so be sure to check back to get a glimpse of them all. 
To create the fan, fold the doily in half, then in half again.  Sponge the edges.  I put a glue dot on the bottom tip of the fan, added a 1/2" circle punch of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock and trimmed to mimic the shape of the fan.  The flower was created using three, 7/8" scallop circles punched from Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock.  We dampened them slightly on a sponge, crumbled them up (yep...crumble them up), then carefully opened them.  Layer them on the Paper Piercing Mat and use a mini brad to hold it together.  The pearl was placed on the head of the brad.
