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.

Share What You Love Perpetual Calendar Card Book Video Tutorial

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!

Team Winter Weekend Retreat Swaps

This past weekend I had the privilege of gathering with my team for our 7th Annual Winter Weekend Retreat – A full 3 days of fellowship, fun and of course stamping.

I love these weekends since it’s a chance for everyone to let their hair down and relax during this extended period of time together. We share, learn, and get to know each other a bit better. It’s like a big slumber party with your best friends –

On Saturday afternoon we hold our Shoe box Swap and I always love to see what everyone comes up with. So today I thought I’d share some of the cards with you that my team members did.

These first two cards use the Classic Garage Suite of products found on page 42-43 of the Occasions Catalog.

I just love this suite of products and the Geared Up Garage Bundle (148590) with it’s coordinating dies. Perfect for creating card for the dudes in our lives. After all does anyone know a guy who doesn’t like cars?

And this next card uses the Beauty Abounds Bundle (150617). If you love this bundle as much as I do why not sign up for my February Class? Not only will you be able to get this great bundle in the class we’ll spend the afternoon making projects together. Click HERE to learn more about my Beauty Abounds Class.

If you haven’t seen this Specialty Designer Series Paper yet in person – it is absolutely gorgeous! The Floral Romance pack includes two different Vellum patterns along with 2 double sided patterns. So it’s a great value since you’ll get multiples of each.

And how about this card made with the Sheltering Tree stamp set (137163) found in the Annual Catalog on page 140? We used this simple technique of stamping twice. Once onto the card front and again onto to the circles to add a pop of color.


And here is a fun technique card Daisy Delight stamp set (143669) and Daisy Punch (143713) from the Annual Catalog.

Do you recognize the sentiment? It’s from the Butterfly Gala stamp set (148580). And the All My Love Designer Series Paper (148576) both can be found in the Occasions Catalog.

Watch some tutorials coming soon for these fancy folds – I hope to work on them in the next week or so.

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?)

Team Fun & the 2019 Occasions Catalog!

Yesterday, I gathered with my team to share the excitement of OnStage with them during our OnStage Stream Event. I normally do this these events the Friday after the OnStage, but no one seemed to mind that we had to reschedule due to my illness. Excitement to see the catalog and products was high.

I had the classroom decorated with OnStage Goodies

Everyone received a little something

And of course a little taste of Orlando with the Mini Mouse Hand Sanitizer I shared with you earlier HERE.

The boxes contained key chain with charms and the beautiful dragonflies Sue made for me earlier.

We shared, everyone won a new accessory from the Occasions Catalog in our very own prize patrol,

and of course stamped with the new products!

Here are the Make ‘n Takes we made. This first one uses the Butterfly Gala Suite of products that you’re just going to LOVE!

And this second one uses the Piece of Cake stamp set

Watch for tutorials coming soon

You can see the new 2019 Occasions goodies on the tables in the classroom, way in the back – I forgot to take pictures of those tables. Sigh. But the good news is I did a sneak peek video for you so you can see them close up!

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!

Country Home Plastic Frame Post it Note Holder

Yesterday I shared with you a treat tent that I made as a special surprise for my Peak Princess Day. This event is a special one that I hold twice a year to pamper my team and I love that I can do that. So today I thought I’d share the project we made and I remembered to take pictures this time so I can share those too. LOL!

So here is my classroom set up and ready for everyone. We played Bingo, laughed, shared, had some goodies and stamped together.

I’ve got such a great team who inspires me every day! I feel truly blessed to have such a wonderful team.

Here’s the project we made.

It’s a quick and easy project using the Country Home Stamp set and a inexpensive plastic frame. I’ve designed this one to hold a small package of post it notes since I wanted to include the sentiment.

Everyone got to choose their images and colored the images with their choice of Stampin’ Blends.

I love seeing all the different color combinations they did.

And of course what is a party without a little something to nibble on?

I couldn’t resist making some Twinkie Torte when I found some Pumpkin Spice Twinkies on a shopping trip.  It’s a recipe I’ve had since I was in High School and one of my favorites. The cinnamon was a bit much in the Twinkies for me, but the torte was pretty good with this fall flavor twist. I’ve had some questions about it so here is the recipe so you can try it too. And I found a yummy recipe for Cheesy Spinach and Artichoke Pinwheels I couldn’t resist sharing with the team too. Tasty and sooooo easy to make – which is my kind of recipe.

 

Twinkie Torte

1 (12 oz.) pkg. chocolate chips

1/3 c. water

1/3 c. sugar

6 eggs, separated

2 c. whip cream or Cool Whip

9-10 Twinkies cut in half

Maraschino cherries

In saucepan, combine chips, water and sugar. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until chips are melted. Remove from heat and add egg yolks one at a time, mixing well after each, and cool. Beat egg whites till stiff – gently fold into chocolate mixture. Place Twinkies, cream side up in 9×13 inch pan. Spread chocolate mixture over Twinkies. Top with whip cream and garnish with cherries. Refrigerate 12 hours before serving.

Enjoy!

Merry Christmas to All Tutorial & More

Well as you can see I didn’t get to post this yesterday afternoon like I had hoped, but the good news is I can share it with you today and even more!

Last month my team enjoyed a shoe box swap and so today I thought I’d share some of them with you. This first card uses the Merry Christmas to All stamp set (147702). This set is filled with wonderful sentiments and has a coordinating Thinlits set, Merry Christmas (147912).

I love the warm country feel of the Festive Farmhouse Suite that was used to highlight this set. How about you? And good news I thought you might enjoy making this card too so I’ve whipped up a quick tutorial that includes the complete supply list for you!

Merry Christmas to All Card PDF

And here is another fun card using the Fun Santa’s Workshop Suite of products.

I feel in LOVE with the Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series Paper (147809) with its flocking! It’s so much fun and you can use the Santa’s Signpost Framelits Dies (147809) to cut out the images! How fun is that?

And how about another tutorial with a full supply list for you? I couldn’t resist. lol

Signs of Santa Card PDF

And this final card uses the Nature Sings stamp set (143653/144406) and the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies (141851) from the Annual Catalog.

Beautiful.

Today’s cards are all part of a shoe box swap that we did at the Blue Mountain Stampers Weekend Getaway in August. This getaway is a time for my team to gather and spend the weekend together. We spend the time laughing, sharing and of course stamping with the new products from the Holiday Catalog PreOrder. It’s a lot of fun and I can’t believe we’ve already been doing this for 6 years now! I love these retreats and spending the time with my team – each and every member is such a blessing to me and we’ve become friends over the years.

Does this sound like fun to you? Love the new products? Do you have a big wish list? As I am sure you can guess, being the first to see a new catalog or any of our new catalogs is a very exciting AND a  huge perk of being a Demonstrator – after all who wouldn’t want to be first?

Here is a card we made during our April Team meeting that focused on different Brusho Techniques.

This card uses a simple masking technique that creates a wonderful look and was soooo easy to do with a bit of painter’s tape!

Want to make some too? Here is a tutorial for the card so you can play and create too.

Blue Mountain Stampers’ OnStage Stream Event

I love to share and so as a team we always gather together to share with those team members who weren’t able to attend the Stampin’ Up! event itself. We gather, have dinner, stream and stamp together with the new products introduced from the latest catalog – this time the NEW 2018 Annual Catalog & the color revamp!

Before the event my husband, Larry helped me do some prepping for one of our Make n Takes – everyone who attended was able to make a 2018 Color Ring with the NEW colors! He’s such a trooper! (Watch for information next month about how you can get one of these too.)

I always try to bring a little taste of OnStage back to the group. This time the lovely little butterflies that decorated the tables – at the end of the night team members were able to choose one to take home, just like at the event.

And of course you have to have some “swag” – So I created these fun little Mini Pizza Boxes (144645) using the Picture Perfect Designer Series Paper (145559)  and our new Detailed Trio Punch (available June 1st).

The Mini Pizza Box contained a little charm to go on their key chain commemorating the launch of our new catalog.

And of course NEW product displays

And of course we HAVE to stamp – after all everyone wants to use some of those new products! So we did 3 Make n Take projects. (watch for me to share those projects soon)

Laughter, fellowship, and stamping – what could be better?

Team fun

Last week my team and I gathered for our monthly team meeting. I really enjoy this time sharing and stamping together, so today I thought I’d share some of the team swaps with you. I also love seeing the projects that everyone chooses to make for their swaps – it’s always fun to see what they create and share!

This first item is a beautiful box made with the Cake Soiree Suite of products  – and since the Sweet Soiree Designer Series Specialty Paper (145564) is a bit heavier, it’s perfect for this kind of thing.

Beautiful, right? Deborah used the Cake Soiree Bundle (145816/147627) to create the tag. And color coordination was made easy since the suite includes a coordinating  Card stock Pack (145565) that contains 3 colors from the Designer Series Paper.

Love the ribbon? Berry Burst (145489) is one of my favorite In Colors and this ribbon with it’s silver edge is perfect for this bundle!

What’s it filled with? I’m sure some treats, Deborah is the best at finding unique treat items for us. (I haven’t cracked it open yet since my husband is home. LOL!)

And here is another treat item that Sue made using the Perennial Birthday stamp set (145757/145760).

It has two pockets that she has tucked a Dark Chocolate Blueberry  Ghiradelli square into – can’t wait to try them!

And how about this cute little note card?

Like the projects? I can’t pick a favorite. I’m so lucky to have this talented group who love crafting, sharing, and learning new things!
