Share What You Love Perpetual Calendar Card Book & More

Today’s project is one that we did as last Weekend’s Peak Princess event. What is that you ask? This event is a special one for those on my team who qualify for it. It’s an afternoon of pampering – filled with games, prizes, and a special project and best of all time together.

Want to see some photos? This first one is of the class room, ready to go – the little skinny notepads that I shared with you yesterday are at everyone’s seats.

And of course there has to be some goodies, right?

One of the dishes I served was a delicious Black Bean Salsa that Sara Douglas shared with us on her face book page, sorry I can’t find it again to link it for you. She gave approximate measurements since she doesn’t measure the chopped ingredients – so I’m giving you what I did below. You can tweak it to fit your tastes.

Black Bean Salsa

Sara Douglass, Stampin’ Up! CEO

2 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed

2 cans of corn, drained and rinsed

1 bunch green onion, chopped

½ purple onion, chopped

1-2 cups red, orange, yellow and green peppers, chopped

Cilantro, leaves pulled and chopped

2 tsp olive oil

2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar

2 tsp. Lime juice

¼ tsp. Garlic powder, salt and pepper (to taste)

Mix and serve. This makes a big bowl, the picture below is just half of what it made. So if you want the recipe can be cut in half.

Serve with corn chips – I used blue ones.


We played bingo – my daughter was home on break so she called Bingo for us (She thought it would be great practice for her upcoming band fundraiser too. Yes, believe it or not she is a Band Director. This is her second year of teaching now!)

Here are just a couple of the prize winners – we played 5 games

And of course we crafted together

And this February’s project was such a hit I thought I’d share it with you today in case you’d like to make some too. It’s a book that holds your cards – it includes a perpetual calendar for you too. It’s a great item that I’ve been using myself for years!

I really love the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and it’s beautiful pearl finish that some of the sheets have so I started there. I think the fact that this Designer Series Paper is a bit heavier will help it hold up for years to come.

Here is the video I did for you.

Share What You Love Perpetual Calendar Card Book Video Tutorial

I’ve also created a pdf for you with the step by step directions and supply list.

Share What You Love Perpetual Calendar Card Book PDF

And here is the link for the Calendar pages for you. I simply printed them off onto Whisper White card stock.

Perpetual Calendar Pages PDF

I think these are going to make great gifts, so I’ll be getting a few more packages of this DSP so I can start my holiday gifts now and earn FREE Sale-a-bration items too! This pack of Designer Series Paper has 24 sheets in it so you can make several per pack of DSP and then use the extra sheets to create cards to go with the book!

Love the project but don’t have a binding machine? That’s not a problem – check with your local Office Supply Store. They normally can bind things for you or allow you to use their machine when you purchase the combs from them.

Enjoy!

Vibrant Vases

Today’s card is bright and cheerful – perfect as we just had some beautiful weather here in North Georgia and the early daffodils are starting to peak their heads out of the ground. However, today we’re back a normal winter day.

Today’s card is my February Thank You card that I created to send out to all of my stamping friends who place an order with me.

The two step stamp set, Vibrant Vases is easy to use and because of the bold images you won’t have a problem lining things up when stamping. It’s also perfect for the Stamparatus if you prefer to go that way.

And did you know that this stamp set coordinates with the Vase Builder Punch (147040) found in the Annual Catalog? That makes it a great way to make this punch even more versatile.

I’ve put together a quick video tutorial for you along with a PDF.

Forever Lovely Valentine Treat

I made today’s project as a little goodie for my team members and put one at everyone’s tables for the Winter Retreat this past weekend. I couldn’t resist these yummy little Creme Filled Wafer Rolls when I saw them and was hoping they were individual wrapped. However, that turned out not to be the case so our 2×8″ Cello Bags to the rescue!

I simply slipped 3 of the little sticks inside and sealed then decorated. I really like how they came together and think they turned out quite elegant with the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets. The little heart looks just like a chocolate box since I used the Tufted Embossing Folder. What do you think?

I’ve put a video together for you in case you’d like to make some of these treats too

Falling for Leaves Thank You Card Tutorial

It’s Monday and I’ve got a week filled with tutorials for you! Today’s card is a Thank You card that I make to send out to those of you who place an order – and today’s card is the one I designed for November’s orders using a  technique with our Embossing Paste.

I just fell in love with the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper when I saw it so I thought I’d use the beautiful Merry Merlot Glimmer Paper for this month’s project. I teamed it up with some of our Shimmer Paste and our brick mask.

But since I wanted to add a bit more color I tinted the Shimmer Paste Crumb Cake. Check out this quick Video Tutorial showing you just how simple that is to do! And that means we have unlimited colors to choose from. Who doesn’t like that?
