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!

Team Time & Swapping

Inspire, Share and Create – That’s what we do as a team once a month at our meetings when we get together. Today’s items that I’ll be sharing with you are swaps that were made by my fellow team members, a group of wonderful stampers! While we’ve all been stamping for different lengths of time it’s amazing how much we learn from each other! Oh, and did I mention we just have fun?

This first card is one that Mary made. It’s a peekaboo pullback card using the Watercolor Wings stamp set (139424) and Bold Butterfly Framelits Dies (138135).

Done in the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper (141663) and using just two colors – it’s quite striking.

How how about this card Cindy made using the Hey, Chick (Sale-a-bration item 143328/143331) and Greatest Greetings (140703/140706) stamp sets.

Cindy used the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper (142778) and Woodgrain Embossing Folder (127821) to create a fun textured background for this little water colored image.

And how about some fun goodies too? Deborah made these fun little bags using the Oh, So Succulent Bundle (145184) and wrapped it all up with a bow!

If you haven’t felt the Succulent Garden 3/8″ Ribbon (142781) – it’s sooo soft and luxurious feeling. I wasn’t sure about this suite of products when I first saw them, but I’ve definitely added them to my wish list!

And finally a little file folder filled with a Ghiradelli chocolate. I love the soft colors of the Cupcakes & Carousel Designer Series Paper Stack (142744) Cindy teamed up with the the  Designer T stamp set (Sale -a-bration item 143356)  sentiment. Can you guess where the sentiment on the tab comes from?

Well it’s the Pretty Kitty stamp set (141861/141864). Of course, the cloud and little bird are from the Tree Builder Punch (138295). Fun right and who wouldn’t smile when they got this little treat? If you’d like to learn how to make these little treat folders you can click HERE to see my video tutorial.

Would you like to join us? Does this sound like fun? Why not consider joining us?

Perfectly Wrapped

Stampin’ Up! has introduced some fantastic kits with coordinating stamp set and today’s card was created using the Perfectly Wrapped set found on page 159 in the NEW Annual Catalog.

Perfectly Wrapped Peekaboo Peach

Created in our NEW 2016-2017 In Colors this set when combined with our Stamp Pad Bundle (141818) is a great way to begin building your stamping supplies or add a trendy new batch of colors to your already existing supplies.

This card was part of the 5 In Color cards that we recently stamped during my June Team meeting.

Stamp up a batch, tie a bit of ribbon around them or tuck them in a box and you’ve got a great gift for someone.

Downtime with my Down line is one of the fun things I enjoy each month during our monthly get together. Laughing, visiting and stamping what could be better, right? And this month was extra special since I was able to pamper them.

Everyone on the team received these cute little bags filled with NEW Catalog items to play with.

So Very Happy

Here is a card using the new So Very Happy Stamp Set (134231/134234) from the NEW 2014 Annual Catalog that will be available to order June 2nd.

News from the Holiday Catalog Premiere Party

Yesterday I held my Holiday Catalog Premiere Party – I always enjoy these events and sharing with you. I really appreciate you, my customers. You are the ones who allow me to share my love of stamping with you and I couldn’t do it without you!

I thought those of you who were not able to make it might enjoy seeing some pictures. So this first photo is the display table. The one side held all the goodies from the Holiday Catalog so that you could look, touch, and feel just how great the new products are. Isn’t it always better to see it in person? And the other side held my upcoming class samples.

Holiday Catalog Premiere Party display

This second photo is one of the goodie table. Can you believe I remembered to take a picture before everyone dug in – LOLl!

Holiday Catalog Premiere Party food table

We enjoyed some Christmas cookies, warm carmel apple cider, and hot cocoa cupcakes. Considering it was almost 80 here in Clarkesville that seemed a bit odd – So I felt really special that my stamping friends chose to spend a beautiful fall afternoon with me stamping.

Holiday Catalog Premiere Party cocoa cupcakes (3)

I just love the way these cute little cupcakes turned out – I found this idea on Pinterest and thought it was just too stinking cute.

Holiday Catalog Premiere Party cocoa cupcakes (1)

The candy cane makes the little handle of the mug. And since it seems I’m hooked on cupcakes this year and filling this cupcake stand I found while bumming earlier this year, they seemed perfect for the occasion.

This final photo is one of the group stamping. Everyone stamped two different projects. One to take with them and then one for the Caring with Cards Program – afterwards they chose which charity they wanted their card to go. They could choose from four – Hospice, Holiday for Heroes, Operation Write Home and the Ronald McDonald House.

Holiday Catalog Premiere Party cocoa cupcakes (2)

Want to learn more about my Caring with Cards Events? Why not click HERE and check out my Calendar of Events. I hold this event once a month.

The second project which I’ll share with you later this week was a Christmas card that I created using Warmth & Wonder, one of our Hostess Sets from the Holiday Catalog. I thought it would be fun to use one of the Hostess sets since during the month of October Hostesses can earn an extra $25 in FREE merchandise for just holding a qualifying party! Click HERE for more information about our special promotions this month.

I originally planned to post the little gift that I gave everyone in today’s post that included the tutorial. But unfortunately Windstream had different ideas (curse, latency issues – they make uploading my videos difficult some days.)

So stop back tomorrow and I’ll share the project with you then.
