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.

Butterfly Gala Card Tutorial

The Occasions Catalog goes Live on January 3rd! So there are just a few more days before you can get the wonderful new products. Hopefully, you’ve received your catalogs in the mail from me already so you already have it in hand. This week I’ll be sharing some tutorials for projects I’ve made, including OnStage projects. I think you’ll enjoy them – so come back by and check them out.

Today’s card is one that I shared with you from my Team OnStage Event (you can see it here). So as promised I’m going to share how I made this card.

This set is a beautiful set that contains not only beautiful butterfly images but lovely sentiments using a pretty font. I couldn’t resist when I saw it in the 2019 Occasions Catalog and since it’s part of a Suite of products there are tons of choices for coordinating products. I think you’re going to LOVE it as much as I do!

So what do you think want to make one too? I’ve got a PDF Tutorial and Video for you too. Why not check them out?
