Saturday I held my annual Luau Catalog Launch Party. Everyone had a chance to see the new products, pick up a catalog, and be treated by me!
This year everyone was able to make this cute little card using the Sea Street stamp set (133985/133988) and our fun new Designer Series Paper, Maritime (133696).
I really love this little set, it is great for all kinds of cards like this birthday card, and of course summer themed items, like my Luau Launch Party. And for anyone who loves nautical items it’s a must have. (Ooops – that’s me!)
Check out all the great images in the set – don’t you just love this little octopus?
And what’s not to love in this fun coordinating paper?
Do you love Designer Series Paper? I know I do and I’m tickled to tell you that starting July 1st Stampin’ Up! will have a special promotion – Buy 3, Get 1 free! Whoo hoo! (I’ll be posting more details about the sale on Tuesday, July, 1st).
Of course one of the things I love to do is pamper my guest at these events, so I had a little snack table with Luau themed food.
Several of you had asked for the recipes on Saturday so I thought I would share them with you over the next few of days along with some of the other projects from the Luau.
This first recipe is for these yummy little Mini Fruit Pizzas that I made using the fresh Blueberries from my yard.
They were a huge hit with my guys too – And since they were so quick and easy to make we’ll be adding them to our summer favorites! You can stop hovering now boys – LOL (You’ll be happy to know they had their own little pizza party after dinner Saturday night!)
Mini Fruit Pizzas
1 pkg. (18 oz./20 count) Refrigerated Sugar Cookies
1 pkg. (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, softened
2 tbsp. frozen Limeade concentrate, thawed
½ c. powdered sugar
10 fresh strawberries, quartered
1 kiwi fruit, peeled, cut in half lengthwise, cut into 10 slices
½ c. fresh blueberries

Bake cookies as directed on package. Cool 10 minutes or until completely cooled.
Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine cream cheese, limeade concentrate and powdered sugar; beat until smooth.
Spread each cooled cookie with 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture. Arrange fruit on top of each cookie.
Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate up to 2 hours.
