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.

So what do you think? Love the new items too? It’s just a peek of what’s inside the 2018 Occasions Catalog!

A Visit from Santa

I love pampering my Team, the Blue Mountain Stampers and this past Tuesday when we gathered together for our Annual Christmas party that’s just what I tried to do.

We gathered together for fun, fellowship and of course a bit of stamping! Everyone brought a dish and we enjoyed a wonderful turkey dinner together with all the trimmings. (I love this part of the evening since it is a lot of fun trying new dishes and enjoying each others.)

Santa made an appearance too!

Notice even our dog, Chewie was in the spirit!

After we retreated to the classroom and enjoyed some stamping together.  And for those that were unable to attend On Stage in Tampa with me, I wanted to create a little mini On Stage event for them.

And of course that box is filled with our NEW products! So everyone had a chance to see the NEW accessories and Designer Series Papers and stamp with some of the new products from the upcoming 2016 Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs!

And what party would be complete without gifts?  Everyone was greeted with this a couple of little goodies when they got to their seats. One had to be chocolate, right?

Christmas Party 2015 Team Gifts

I love these little boxes that I created using the  Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper (139592) and the Bow Builder Punch (137414). I think they turned out really cute.

And what do they contain? Well…….

Christmas Party 2015 Group Gifts (4)

A Bone Folder for everyone that has been decorated with a charm. I made each Bone Folder Charm  with our Winter Wonderland Embellishments (139621) along with different beading so we can tell them apart when we stamp together. LOL! (Of course, they have some blue since we’re the Blue Mountain Stampers.) I made these to coordinate with their scissor charms that they received earlier this year. (Want to see the scissor charms? You can click HERE)

The Clothespin Santa Hat  is sooooo easy to make!

Christmas Party Santa Hat group

Want to learn how to make these quick and easy treats? Well all you need is a few supplies. (You may even have these. If not let me know and I can help you out.)

Here’s how:

Punch out a Tree using the Red Glimmer Paper and clip off the trunk. Using the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper punch out a circle and Word Window. Attach to the tree piece. After it dries attach the hat to the Clothespin.

That’s it – quick and easy!!! But I warn you, these are so cute you’ll want to make lots of these! LOL
