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 Getaway Fun with the Holiday Catalog!

As I mentioned yesterday I held my team retreat last weekend. It was 3 wonderful days of fellowship, stamping, and laughter. As usual I was a bit remiss in taking photos of us together during the event. (Note to self put a sticky note out to remind me next time. since I get side tracked easily at these events. LOL). But you are in luck because I did take photos of some of the project everyone was working on.

Our group was a bit smaller than normal but that didn’t slow us down any. Actually it was kind of nice since we were able to spread out. You know how it goes 6 feet is never enough space with all those new goodies! Here is a photo of the space set up and ready for everyone to arrive.

Deborah brought this cute little treat for everyone made with the Lemon Zest Bundle (145359/145360).

I can’t wait to make some of these up myself to surprise folks with – that is if I can find the lemon candies. (3 stores already and no luck! Sigh… maybe it is the eclipse and they’ve gone the way of moon pies!)

She also brought this cute little bag she was working on using the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (144613) and Spooky Cat Stamp Set (144749).

And do you see the yummy Basic Black Vintage Crochet Trim (144611)? I can’t wait to start working with it!

And Cindy made these wonderful little post it holders for everyone.

On to cards – Want to see some of the wonderful cards we made in our shoe box swap?

Anna’s uses a couple of the new products from the Holiday Catalog.

I just love the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder (144686), snowflakes are my thing any how, but this card was soooo quick and easy perfect for holiday cards!

And Deborah’s is a new twist on the ever popular Swirly Bird Stamp Set (141749).

And my card – of course it uses the Musical Season Bundle (146048/146049) and Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper (144623).

I love the way the french horn cuts out of the Champagne Foil Paper (144748).  You may see this one turn up at my catalog launch (watch for more information coming soon.)

And how about this final card that Cindy made using the Painted Harvest stamp set from the Holiday Catalog. Soft and lovely – I knew I’d end up wanting this bundle when I saw her working with things at the retreat!

And here is a fun note card that Anna surprised me with for my promotion using the Icing on the Cake Stamp Set (143664). I was admiring it while she was stamping but had no clue it was for me – what a surprise!

I have such wonderful stamping friends and team members!

And last but not least how about this cute little thank you card made with the Bella & Friends stamp set (141867/141870)?

So what do you think? Love the new items too in my 2017 Holiday Catalog PreOrder Goodies Video from yesterday (Click HERE to see the video) and today’s projects? It’s just a peek of what’s inside the 2017 Holiday 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!  Add the fact that you’ll receive a discount on all these products and you can’t loose!
