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.

Brusho Masking Technique Video Tutorial

The Brusho Color Crystals are so much fun to play with I don’t want to stop! If you haven’t tried them yet, you won’t be disappointed with the variety of uses with your projects.

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?

If you like to learn new ways to use Stampin’ Up! products and would like to be part of a fun group of stampers, my team the Blue Mountain Stampers might be just the thing you are looking for. Click HERE for more information about joining and getting a fantastic stamping kit too.

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!

Painted with Love Treats

Yesterday I shared a fun card that we made during this month’s Blue Mountain Stampers’ Team meeting and promised I’d share some of the wonderful swaps with you too.

So here we go! This first project is a fun box that Deborah showed us how to make – it holds quite a bit of goodies inside and doesn’t use any adhesive which is rather cool. This first one was made with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies (141707) and Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (145580).

It holds quite a bit of goodies inside and doesn’t use any adhesive which is rather cool.

Here is another version she made using the Fruit Basket stamp set (145833) and Tutti-Fruitti Designer Series Paper Stack (145606).

Where did the little fruit come from? It was supply cut out from the Designer Series Paper! Fun right?

And seems we were on a roll with the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper – as you can see it is really versatile. Loving this pack of paper with that fun gold touch!

Here is a little treat bag using the Sure Do Love You stamp set (145763/145766) and the pretty Love Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack (145588).

Recognize those little gold foil leaves? They are part of the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies (1456553).

And here is a fun nugget holder using the Lift Me Up Stamp set (142893/142896) and Up & Away Thinlits Dies (142748).

I love the way the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper feels like a sky with it’s colorful streaks.

And finally a card made with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies (142749)

What can I say, we’ve got a great group and we love to share! Sound like fun? Would you like to come stamp with us too?

So what do you think? Sale-a-bration is a great time to join! Add the fact that you’ll receive a discount on all these products and you can’t loose! If you feel this is a good time to join Stampin’ Up! and my team, the Blue Mountain Stampers, you too can be first too!

Bubble Over & Team Fun

Last week I gathered with my fellow team members to share, learn and create – I really enjoy this time together and always learn something new. This month our newest team member offered to share a fun pop up card with us.

So while she shared the technique I designed the card – don’t you LOVE team work! Want to see what we came up with?

I am loving the Bubble Over bundle from the Occasions Catalog and the coordinating Bubble & Fizz Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-bration offerings, so that’s what I started with. And since the brick wall in the background kind of made this feel like teenage grunge I also reached for the Epic Celebrations stamp set to decorate the inside.

So what do you think? Great for a teen’s special day? I just love the bold bright colors that our Stampin’ Blends give us. I thought it was a perfect coloring option to go with the bold patterns on the Bubble & Fizz Designer Series Paper.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing our team swaps with you along with a fun box too that was shared.

Supplies: 

Stamp Set: Bubble Over (145868) and Epic Celebrations (Sale-a-bration 147232/147236)

Inks: Memento tuxedo Black Ink (132708), Basic Gray Archival Ink (140932), and Pool Party Classic Ink (122924)

Paper: Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 147244), Lemon Lime Twist (144245), Calypso Coral (122925), Basic Gray (121044), and Whisper White card stock (100730)

Winter Weekend Team Fun

This past weekend my Team, the Blue Mountain Stampers, gathered for a few days of stamping, sharing and fun. We gather 3 times a year for these retreats and it is always a blast!

Cindy, gave everyone these sweet little Valentine boxes.

This time there were 7 of us – here is a early morning shot of the space on Saturday morning before the fun began.

This time on Saturday after our Shoe box Swap I introduced the Dice Game – and it seemed to be a hit!

Have you ever played? This game is always fun and it is fast paced!

Here are the rules. There are pans with 2 dice in them, all the prizes are put in the center of the circle. You roll the dice and then pass the pan, if you roll a double you get to choose a prize.

Then after all the prizes are gone from the center the timer is set. Then you start the game again, but this time you steal from each others piles of prizes. Seems there is always one that is highly sought after and is stolen frequently!

When the timer goes off the game is done and everyone gets to open their prizes!

We had so much fun doing this I’m sure we’ll be including it again!

And now on to the cards.

Want to see what we made in our Shoe box Swap? Everyone made great cards to share.

This first one uses the Petal Palette bundle (145973/145974. If you love this bundle of products check out my Class & Events, we’ll be using this in my February 3rd class to create a wonderful stationary box and cards. CLICK HERE for my Calendar of Events.

And here is a elegant card made using the Hold on to Hope bundle (145969/145970) and the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack (144168).

I love the thinlits in the bundle – this larger cross has beautiful detail and the delicate cross in the set not only cuts the cross out, but also embosses a design on it.

And this final card uses the Brusho Crystal Colours (144101) and the Beautiful Day stamp set (145912/145915) found in the Occasions Catalog. Want to learn more about this fun new product? Check out my March class HERE.

Does this sound like fun to you? Would you love to join a group with those who love crafting as much as you? Add the fact that you’ll receive a discount on all these products you love and you can’t loose! If you feel this is a good time to join Stampin’ Up! and my team, the Blue Mountain Stampers, contact me – I’d love to tell you more about joining and answer any questions you may have.

Team Holiday Fun

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I love to pamper my team! So for this month’s team meeting we had our Annual Holiday luncheon and enjoyed some time together where we laughed, shared, played and stamped.

Want to see some of the wonderful items they’ve been making since the last meeting?

Fantastic projects, right? I can’t pick a favorite – I’ve got such a great team of folks who just love to paper craft!

We had fun playing the dice game too. Have you ever played this game?

Fun, and fast paced! And of course when the clock runs out – the goodies are yours!

I made these fun Lots of Lavender Bags. The stamp set is one of our Sale-a-bration options and I couldn’t resist the yummy new ribbon from the Occasions Catalog.

Each bag was filled with a little something special from the NEW Occasions Catalog! Everyone was a winner!

And of course we made a couple of projects too- So we did some stamping too! I had so much fun designing for my Santa’s Workshop Class that I had too many projects for just one class. LOL! You know me I love gift items and 3ds!!! So we made some candle holders and learned a fun new technique while we were at it!

I found these yummy lemon candy canes at the Dollar Tree and couldn’t resist putting them with a lemon scented candle and using the Lemon Zest stamp set (143805/143808). This bundle has very quickly become one of my go to favorites! Lemons, oranges, and limes – oh, my!

I thought you might enjoy making some of these for yourself. With all the crazy flavored candy canes out there right now the options are endless, but of course I can’t resist anything lemon!

Here is my Blue Mountain Stampers’ Lemon Zest Candle Tutorial (printable PDF)

I’ve taken it a bit slower this past week and forgot I had this fun video to share with you from my OnStage Product Purchase Premiere – no worries tho, because I can share it with you today and you can see some of our wonderful new items in the Occasions Catalog.

OnStage Live – Product Purchase Premiere Sneak Peek Video

So what do you think? Love the new items too? It’s just a peek of what’s inside the 2018 Occasions Catalog! And as I am sure you can guess, being the first to see this 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? Right!

Team Time = Fun Time & more!

Team Time with my peeps is always one of the best parts of the month – we have such fun together sharing and stamping together. Yesterday, we held our monthly Team Meeting, so today I thought I’d share with you some of the wonderful projects that I’ve received during swaps from my team members.

This first card Deborah made using the Colorful Seasons Bundle (145348) of products.

And this card was made using the Mabel Me Pretty  Bundle (145304/145305)

A couple of cute little boxes using the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper (144125)

And a bag using the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (144610) and the Wood Words Stamp (143925/143928) set currently on sale during our World Card Making Day promotion.

And I love how our Multipurpose Adhesive sheets (144106) make this Birthday Thinlits Die (143700) so easy to use! This card has a soft watercolor feel to it since it was teamed up with our Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (144137) that is part of our Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Designer Series Paper promotion.

This little square card was made using the Jar of Love (141587) and coordinating Everyday Jars Framelits Dies (141490) Isn’t it adorable?

Love Designer Series paper? How about decorating some note pads like Cindy did? I couldn’t pick a favorite – how about you? You can get your favorites this month during our Buy 3 Get 1 Free Designer Series paper promotion.

And here is the Lemon Zest stamp set (143805/142808) – we got to play with the Embossing Paste (141979) and even added color to it with a Rose Red reinker. How cool is that?

And finally here is a cute little post it note holder that Cindy made for everyone at the Peak Princess event using the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper (144125). This stuff is great for a project like this since it is a bit heavier weight kraft paper.

Whew! Lot’s of great projects and inspiration shared – right?

Celebrating with Peak Princess Day

We also had a special event last month – it’s a day of pampering that I do twice a year, I call it my Peak Princess event – after all we are Blue Mountain Stampers. LOL! We had our largest group qualify this time – 8 in total.

I love to make special appetizers and treats for everyone to enjoy. So we always begin these events with some time enjoying some goodies and sharing.

And this time the Olive Bread was a huge hit! So I thought I’d share the recipe with you too. It’s really yummy – my guys were tickled they got some too! (Just a tip cut the bread evenly so the cheese doesn’t melt and slide down one side. This half was not the prettiest, but oh so good!)

Olive Cheese Bread

1 loaf French Bread

About 25 Mezzetta © Spanish Queen Pimento Stuffed Olives

6 oz. can of Black Olives, drained

2 stalks Green Onions (scallions)

1 stock Butter, room temperature

1/2 c. Mayonnaise

3 c. Monterey Jack Cheese, grated

Roughly chop both black olives and pimiento stuffed olives. Slice green onions into thin pieces. Combine butter mayonnaise, cheese, olives and green onions in a mixing bowl. Stir together until thoroughly combined.

Spread mixture thickly onto French bread that has been sliced lengthwise. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and browning.

Mixture can also be made in advanced and refrigerated for up to 2 days.

 

We also get to celebrate and recognize achievements with team gifts.

And we make projects too so everyone had a make ‘n take packet ready for them – after all we love stamping together!
