Team Time = Fun Time

Yesterday I held my monthly team meeting and we had a blast playing with the Brusho Crystal Colors and learning 4 Brusho techniques together.

We also celebrated those promotions to Bronze Elite with a team gift – a team charm bracelet.

and our challenge winners from the past three months with rewards.

And of course we had to have some drawing winners too!

Those that had their names drawn got to pick out a little something from the prize basket – Always a hit.

Of course sharing is a big part of our team meeting and so I thought I’d share the swaps.

This first project is a little book mark that uses the Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set (145823/145826) done is soft sweet colors.

and here is the back

This bookmark is magnetic so it opens to slide over the page. Love the soft colors for spring.

And this one will dazzle you LOL!

made with the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper (145600) and Glimmer Paper (145601). Do you recognize the sentiment? It’s from our Pocketful of Sunshine Stamp set (143719).

And how about this sweet little box?

The cut out is from our Rainbow Builder Framelits Dies (145659) and the rose is made with our 1 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch (146139). Sweet right?

I’ve got the greatest group! I really love the time I get to spend with them and feel very lucky that each and everyone of them chose to join the my team the Blue Mountain Stampers! Want to know more about us? Click HERE to learn about my Team.

Don’t forget to stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more swaps with you!

Bubble Over Birthday Fun

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. Here in North Georgia we couldn’t have asked for nicer weather, but it was rather odd having it fall on April Fool’s Day this year.  Yesterday was also my son, Johnathan’s 26th birthday and so I wanted to make him something special. I was inspired by our recent Stampin’ Success, so I reached for my Bubble Over Bundle and got to work. (I bet you can imagine how many times I was told he’ll arrive any moment during labor, followed by April Fool’s Day! Not a lot of fun after 12 hours in labor and it being my first. But then I wouldn’t have those fun stories to tell him either. LOL!)

And of course, I always make a theme cake for him that was inspired by the Bubble Over Bundle. The cap is a little wonky but he didn’t seem to mind.

He loves the special theme cakes that I’ve made over the years for him and this one was no different. It put a big smile on his face, and I learned something too. Did you know you can make a beer cake? I didn’t until my friend mentioned it, but why not right? Need to check out some recipes since I know it will be a lot of fun to give a try. (How appalling after being raised in Milwaukee. Ahhh the smell of hops… a story for another time.) LOL!

Want to see how I made the card? I’ve made a tutorial for you.

Quick & Easy Easter Treats!

Check out these quick and easy Easter Treats I whipped up yesterday using the We Must Celebrate stamp set – I really love this little bunny.

And the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (128748/127802) is one of my favorites since it has a ton of sentiments and gives you something for every occasion!

I used our 2″ x 8″ Cellophane Bags (141703) and filled it with Hershey’s Nuggets that I wrapped strips from the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper (144185).

A quick wash with my Aqua Painter (103954) in Smoky Slate (131179) and Blushing Bride Classic Ink (131172) completed my bunny. For the topper I was inspired by the colors in the paper and used my Layering Circles Framelits Dies (141705).

And how about this little Treat Pouch filled with a Ghiradelli Blueberry Chocolate Square? Got to tell you these chocolates are yummy!

I used the Petal Garden Designer Series 6×6 Paper Stack (144168) since it is perfect for this project – no cutting and of course teamed it up with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies (141705) so I could get the full body of this little guy. A quick sentiment done in Old Olive Classic Ink (126953) and voila! done and ready for giving out this weekend!

You can see my video tutorial on how to make these little Treat Pouches CLICK HERE.

Enjoy! And then why not stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more projects with you?

Springtime Foils Stylized Birthday Cards

It’s almost that time to send out birthday cards again and so today I’m going to share with you the #imbringingbirthdaysback card that I designed for April. I couldn’t resist using the Springtime Foil Specialty Designer Series Paper that is part of the Sale-a-bration choices since it is just so gorgeous!!!

Here is the card

And it was soooo easy to make! Each card looks a bit different since I used the flowers from the sheet of designer series paper that I cut out and simply colored them in with my Blends. Love the look!

This paper is also great for all kinds of techniques too! The options are endless since it has a glossy type finish and is a heavy card stock.

Check out the tutorial for this card below – and if you are wanting some of this paper for yourself, don’t delay since it is only available while Sale-a-bration last so there is only a few days left to year yours since Sale-a-bration ends March 31st at 11:50 pm (MT)

We Must Celebrate Easter Merci Chocolate Box Tutorial

I just received my We Must Celebrate stamp set and couldn’t wait to get started creating with these fun little animals. I knew I would love using the little bunny for creating Easter gifts for family and friends.

I knew just want I wanted to do with them after making this chocolate box for my team members (Click HERE to see the video tutorial). So today’s project is one I whipped up a bunch of for those attending yesterday’s card class as a little surprise.

And of course it holds what else? Chocolate of course! I’m really finding these Merci Chocolate quite yummy and fun to work with and am asking myself how I’ve over looked them for so long!

I love the soft spring feel of the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper when I ran across the package – so I used it to help choose the colors I used.

Wonder how I got just the bunny image? You could color it with Stampin’ Write Markers, or even mask the other section of the stamp off, but I cut the stamp apart. Yes, you heard me correctly – and for those of you who know me you know just how hard this was for me. LOL!

But I did it and am glad I did now, since it makes using this image so much easier AND when I want to stamp the group together I simply put it together on my clear block.

It didn’t affect the image at all when I stamped it, which made me very happy. The only thing I would do differently is cut the label before I apply it to the back of my clear mount stamp.

I’ve made a quick tutorial for you so you can make some too!

You’re Inspiring Easter Card Tutorial

I loved the daffodil images in the You’re Inspiring stamp set (145805/145808) as soon as I saw it, so was excited to sit down and play with it the other day. I came up with a bunch of cards quickly and wanted to share one with you today.

I designed this card for Easter. Seemed there were always these smiling little faces trying to pop up on a warm winter day – next to the snow in Wisconsin it was a cheerful pop of color. LOL!

I love the way the faux embossed Letter Press technique that I used for this card turned out using the Basket Weave Embossing Folder that is part of the Sale-a-bration Blooming Basket Bundle (147504/147505). I can’t wait to play more with this folder.
