Share What You Love Perpetual Calendar Card Book & More

Today’s project is one that we did as last Weekend’s Peak Princess event. What is that you ask? This event is a special one for those on my team who qualify for it. It’s an afternoon of pampering – filled with games, prizes, and a special project and best of all time together.

Want to see some photos? This first one is of the class room, ready to go – the little skinny notepads that I shared with you yesterday are at everyone’s seats.

And of course there has to be some goodies, right?

One of the dishes I served was a delicious Black Bean Salsa that Sara Douglas shared with us on her face book page, sorry I can’t find it again to link it for you. She gave approximate measurements since she doesn’t measure the chopped ingredients – so I’m giving you what I did below. You can tweak it to fit your tastes.

Black Bean Salsa

Sara Douglass, Stampin’ Up! CEO

2 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed

2 cans of corn, drained and rinsed

1 bunch green onion, chopped

½ purple onion, chopped

1-2 cups red, orange, yellow and green peppers, chopped

Cilantro, leaves pulled and chopped

2 tsp olive oil

2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar

2 tsp. Lime juice

¼ tsp. Garlic powder, salt and pepper (to taste)

Mix and serve. This makes a big bowl, the picture below is just half of what it made. So if you want the recipe can be cut in half.

Serve with corn chips – I used blue ones.


We played bingo – my daughter was home on break so she called Bingo for us (She thought it would be great practice for her upcoming band fundraiser too. Yes, believe it or not she is a Band Director. This is her second year of teaching now!)

Here are just a couple of the prize winners – we played 5 games

And of course we crafted together

And this February’s project was such a hit I thought I’d share it with you today in case you’d like to make some too. It’s a book that holds your cards – it includes a perpetual calendar for you too. It’s a great item that I’ve been using myself for years!

I really love the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and it’s beautiful pearl finish that some of the sheets have so I started there. I think the fact that this Designer Series Paper is a bit heavier will help it hold up for years to come.

Here is the video I did for you.

I’ve also created a pdf for you with the step by step directions and supply list.

Share What You Love Perpetual Calendar Card Book PDF

And here is the link for the Calendar pages for you. I simply printed them off onto Whisper White card stock.

Perpetual Calendar Pages PDF

I think these are going to make great gifts, so I’ll be getting a few more packages of this DSP so I can start my holiday gifts now and earn FREE Sale-a-bration items too! This pack of Designer Series Paper has 24 sheets in it so you can make several per pack of DSP and then use the extra sheets to create cards to go with the book!

Love the project but don’t have a binding machine? That’s not a problem – check with your local Office Supply Store. They normally can bind things for you or allow you to use their machine when you purchase the combs from them.

Enjoy!

Share What You Love Skinny Notepads

If you love note pads like I do, you’re going to love this quick and easy project that I made recently for my Team’s Peak Princess Day. This fun holder uses the Share What You Love Suit of products and holds a skinny notepad perfect for jotting notes on the go.

Check out this video tutorial so you can make some too!

I know you’ll want to make some too so here is a printable tutorial for you.

Share What You Love Skinny Notepads Tutorial PDF

Wonder how where these skinny notepads come from?

I’ve used a typical Junior Legal Pad that I took to my local office supply, Office Pros in Cornelia. For a small fee they cut the legal pads in 1/2 for me. (If you don’t live locally most office supply stores offer this service, so you’ll just want to check with them on their requirements.)

Enjoy!

Serene Garden & Team Time

I love getting together with my team at our monthly meeting and sharing. We have a lot of fun together learning new things and sharing. Today’s projects were all part of our team swaps.

This first card uses the Serene Garden bundle (148395) and the emboss resist technique.

Simply use our Versa Mark Ink Pad and White Embossing Powder stamp the image and then use a Sponge Dauber and Gorgeous Grape Ink (147099) to create this lovely soft background.

And how about this fun square card using the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set (142924) and Thinlits Dies (142749).

It’s fun fold pops open making it extra special.

And this fun project is a 3d that holds a bright and cheerful nail file. The holder was created with our Envelope Punch Board (133774).

And the A Good Day stamp set (145870/145873) was used for this fun 3d not only were stamps used for the sentiment, but also to create a background to match the nail file using the Granny Apple 147095/147163) and Melon Mambo Classic Inks (147051/115662).

And this final card was made using the Lasting Lily (Sale-a-bration 149717) stamp set and our Wood Textures (144177) and Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper (148554).

Meant to Be Merci Treat Holder Tutorial

Merci chocolates are so yummy that I thought I’d create some treat holders to share them – plus it stops me from eating them since they seem to call my name! So I reached for the Meant to Be Bundle and got to work.

Here is what I came up with

This little treat holder holds 3 Merci Chocolates – a perfect size for just a little taste of chocolate when you want it.

I love the way the heart shape is at the top without any card stock behind it. Want to know how I made them? Here’s my video tutorial.

Forever Lovely Valentine Treat

I made today’s project as a little goodie for my team members and put one at everyone’s tables for the Winter Retreat this past weekend. I couldn’t resist these yummy little Creme Filled Wafer Rolls when I saw them and was hoping they were individual wrapped. However, that turned out not to be the case so our 2×8″ Cello Bags to the rescue!

I simply slipped 3 of the little sticks inside and sealed then decorated. I really like how they came together and think they turned out quite elegant with the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets. The little heart looks just like a chocolate box since I used the Tufted Embossing Folder. What do you think?

I’ve put a video together for you in case you’d like to make some of these treats too

Blue Mountain Stampers’ Shoe Box Fun

Last week we I held our annual Blue Mountain Stampers’ Luncheon and along with it we had a Shoe Box Swap this year – so there was lots of stamping going on!

We began our Luncheon with a dish to pass – always yummy new recipes to try. I love “pot lucks” how about you?

The table was decorated – and everyone had a little gift bag waiting for them.

The bags were filled with a team coffee cup, note book I made, and a team pen.

We also celebrated lots of team accomplishments for the past quarter.

Want to see some of the Shoe Box Swaps we made?

These first two were created using the Love What You Love stamp set (148042) and coordinating Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (148926)

And here are some cute tags we made using the Candy Cane Builder Punch (148011) and Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper (146921).

If you noticed the Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon that we used for the tags and wondering where you can find it. It’s from our  2019 Occasions Catalog and will be available in January.

And here is a cute gift card holder using the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set (142043) and coordinating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch (140396). Aren’t the little antlers cute? They were made with the Sprig Punch (148012) from the Holiday Catalog.

Do you recognize the sentiment? It’s from our Farmhouse Christmas Stamp set (148478).

And here is a simple but elegant card using the Stylish Christmas stamp set (146770/146773) and Softly Falling Embossing Folder (139672).

Of course, what could be better than swaps. So here are some of the swaps members brought starting with the 3ds treats filled with yummy goodies.

And finally a fancy fold card.

What a wonderful time we had that afternoon. I have such a wonderful team of stampers – each and everyone of them bring their own special talent to our group as you can see.

Here is our selfie from the afternoon. (I’m still getting use to my new selfie stick. LOL, can you tell?)

Sound like fun? Have you ever considered becoming a demonstrator? If so the Blue Mountain Stampers might be a great fit for you too.

More OnStage Swaps & Team Gifts

I’ve got soo many great cards to share with you I’m not sure where to start – so today’s post  will be focusing on some of the cards I made during Sherrie’s Shoe box Swap again. All the sets can be found in our Annual Catalog.

This first one using the Floral Frames stamp set (146505/146508) we heat embossed the image and sentiment using White Embossing Powder and then used our Smoky Slate Blends Combo Pack (145058) to color in the images. So simple – but clearly beautiful as you can see.

And this next card uses the Friendly Expressions stamp set (146670/146673).

Done in Night of Navy and Granny Apple Green with a splatter of our Frost White Shimmer Paint (147046) I think the combination is quite striking.

These two were my favorites from today’s cards – but here are some more great cards too.

How about this fun and vibrant card using the Varied Vases stamp set (146644) and the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper (146289)?

And these next two cards are made using the Dandelion Wishes stamp set (146744/146747).

Or how about this one using the Hanging Garden stamp set (146236/146239) and color blocking?

And the final card today is one that uses the Enjoy Live stamp set (148190)?

Can you pick just one favorite? LOL! why not leave me a comment and let me know?

OnStage Team Goodies

And now a little more about OnStage Live in Orlando – I love making these little name tags for my team for event event, after all when there are over 6,000 of the same bag roaming around you want to make sure you can find it, right? And so here is what I came up with for this events bag tag.

Each tag had 3 special charms to commemorate the event plus a special charm that my fellow team member Sue made for the end of each.

She created such a lovely dragonfly charm for me with just wire, beads and pliers. She made it look sooo easy that I can’t wait to give it a try myself when I get a chance. Although something tells me it won’t be quite as easy as she made it look! But then that is the great part about being part of a team, we all have different strengths that we share with each other!

They really looked nice on our bags I think.

I also tried my hand at some special organizers for everyone that a fellow leader shared with me.

I love the way they turned out and the little post it holders with flags for marking our new catties!

And what can I say I was having way too much fun playing in my classroom – so everyone received a little OnStage Live Survival Kit too.

Filled with everything you might need for our 3 day event. I found this cute little list and adjusted it to my needs.

What can I say, I appreciate and value my team and the richness they bring to my life! They are truly a blessing.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more wonderful swaps and some of the display boards from OnStage too!
