Ahh… team retreats – there is nothing better than spending time with my peeps and our Team Retreats give us uninterrupted craft time together. Fellowship, sharing, and stamping – What could be better? A Shoe Box Swap of course!
What’s a Shoe Box you ask? Well it is a term we use to describe an event where everyone creates and then brings enough card kits or projects to share and we take turns stamping them. But why call it a shoe box? The idea is everyone puts the supplies in what else? A Shoe Box of course. LOL! You get the idea. Any ways, I also love these afternoons and the sharing.
Here are some of the cards we made during the Shoe Box.
This first one uses the Sailing Home Bundle (151066) and it’s coordinating Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper (149481).
And here is a clean and simple card – I love the bright colors and can you see the Wink of Stella we used on the butterfly wings? (Pictures just don’t do justice to the real cards).
The Butterfly Gala stamp set (148580) and the coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch (148523) make this a quick and easy card to make tons of quickly!
And here is a lovely Acetate Window Card using the Healing Hugs Stamp set (148223), still one of my favorites with it’s Distinktive stamps that make the flowers look so realistic.
And finally a pocket card using the Memorable Mosaic stamp set (149226), Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper (149478), beautiful Mint Macaron 1/4″ Textile Ribbon (149480), and the really fun Flower Faceted Gems (149479). You can find this suite of products with even more coordinating products in our 2019 Annual Catalog on page 119.
Whew! Lots of stamping fun and a great variety of cards too.
Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing my card tutorial using the Back on Your Feet stamp set. I’ve still got to do the video or I would have shared it with you today. I’m running a bit behind this week already since I was working on my organized swap by mail – more about these cards soon.
Yep – those packages are filled with fantastic cards using stamps from the 2019 Annual Catalog!!! A lot of work, but great fun too!
