đź‘‘Peak Princess Fun & the Amazing Magnolia Lane Folding Album

Last weekend was my Peak Princess event. What’s that? Well it is a special afternoon of pampering for those Team members who have earned it. We enjoy the time together, food, played a game, and of course create a project.

This event was extra special since it was our largest group yet due to everyone’s hard work – and I added a bit of a luau theme to the snack table to celebrate.

The hit of the snack table was the Artichoke & Mushroom Toast – not really Hawaiian fair, but since the Hawaiian pizza rolls I was planning on were a flop when I tried them, this worked out well since everyone seem to enjoy them.

Here is the recipe if you want to try them yourself. I found them really easy to do and prepped everything the day before and then assembled before the event.

Artichoke & Mushroom Toast

Taste of Home

  • 36 slices French bread baguette (1/2 inch thick)
  • 3 T. Olive Oil, divided
  • ½ lb. sliced fresh mushrooms
  • ½ lb. sliced baby portobello mushrooms
  • ½ tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 2 T. butter
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jar (7.5 oz) marinated quartered artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1/3 c. mayonnaise
  • 1 T. Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 2 c. Swiss cheese, shredded

Place bread on baking sheets; brush with 2 tablespoons oil. Broil 4-6 inches from heat for 1-2 minutes or until lightly toasted.

In a large skillet, sauté mushrooms with Italian seasoning in butter and remaining oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Remove from heat and set aside.

Place artichokes in a food processor; cover and process until finely chopped. Add mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese; cover and process until blended. Spread over toast slices; top with mushrooms and sprinkle with Swiss cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 4-6 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Yield 3 dozen

And here is the classroom waiting for everyone to arrive.

I shared the little Country Home Kit Kat Holders which were everyone’s “pillow gifts” on the table with you yesterday – I thought the thankful greeting was perfect to express my thanks to my team.

We enjoyed a game after everyone settled in –

Have you ever played the Right, Left Game? It’s so simple…. everyone starts with a package and then we passed our packages to the right or left depending on the Ink Pad story I read.

Lot’s of fun and laughter to go around!

After we did a Make n Take and created these lovely Folding Albums. My friend, Marni gave me one of these little albums last spring in a swap and I loved it so much. I saved it since I knew it was the perfect project for the day. I simply put my own spin on it.

It wasn’t hard to choose the paper I wanted to use. The Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper is so striking and you’ve got a ton of pattern choices in the package. Here is what the album looks like opened.

I’m looking forward to filling it with some photos!

Here is the gang working on theirs

Want to see how I made this album? The Team enjoyed making them so much I thought you would too!

Amazing Magnolia Lane Folding Album Video Tutorial

Oh, I almost forgot the tag or chip board is simply the extra piece in our Specialty Designer Series Paper packs – How great is that? You can up cycle it!

So what do you think? Want to make one for yourself? I think they make great gifts and of course you could stamp on the inside diamonds if you prefer rather than use it as an photo album. I think there are endless ways to use this amazing album!

Here is a printable version with the complete supply list I used.

Country Home Kit Kat Holder

This past weekend was my team Peak Princess event and so I wanted to make something special for my team members that earned this special event during the first quarter. Naturally the Country Home stamp set came to mind with it’s lovely sentiments and images. The fact that I could use the fun new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint on the cotton pods from the Holiday Catalog was an added bonus and a ton of fun!

Check out these elegantly wrapped treats

And since this holder fits a full size Kit Kat Bar there is plenty to share if you want too!

They are simple to make, use a sheet of card stock and I really like how the back opens to show your sentiment.

See how I made it and the magic of the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint here in my video tutorial.

Shoe Box Fun at the Team Weekend Getaway

I mentioned last Friday that I was getting ready for my team retreat – we gather 3 times a year for weekends of stamping, laughter, food and fun. I really look forward to these gatherings of uninterrupted crating time with my peeps. They are the best and while it is like a big slumber party we also get to get to use our Holiday PreOrder goodies to create. What could be better?

A shoe box swap of course! While it was a small gathering this time due to schedules we still had a wonderful time at our shoe box swap. It is always good fun and I love seeing what everyone is creating. Here are some of the projects.

This first card is for Halloween and uses the Apple Builder Punch (150663) and the coordinating Harvest Hello stamp set (150581).

This set is great for quick and easy card since it has a coordinating punch – and a super set for teachers and back to school projects since its got some wonderful sentiments too.

And here is a card that uses a bundle (153006) that is sure to be popular.

The Christmas Gleaming Suite is filled with wonderful products, and the Brightly Gleaming Designer Series paper (150429) includes Copper Foiling that is quite striking. We used the new Copper Delicata Metallic Ink for this project (150707/150708) and can you see the subtle shimmer of the Shimmy Crystal Effects (150892) that we used for the berries? So excited to have these new option for our crafting!

We also made this fun easel sticky note holder using the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper (149500).

And finally here is my card that I created using the Toile Christmas Bundle (152367) from the Toile Tidings Suite of products.

I just fell in love with this Distinktive stamp set as soon as I saw it – the cardinal is always a favorite of mine. I’ll be working up a tutorial for you and hope to share it in the next week or two as we get closer to the Holiday Catalog launch on September 4th.

And of course, what is a team event with out some door prizes?

Goodies from the Holiday Catalog catalog – winners got to choose their favorite accessories.

Would you like a 2019 Holiday Catalog? You can pick one up during my August Classes or contact me and I’ll be happy to mail you one.

And of course how about a special event where you can pick up your copy of the catalog AND use some of these fun items too! Why not join me and play with some of the new products?

Blue Mountain Stampers’ Shoe Box Fun

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!

Team time at OnStage

Today’s projects are some fun ones that I always enjoy doing when we have a Stampin’ Up! event for my team. And I’m excited to be heading for our OnStage Local in Charlotte this weekend. What could be better than spending time with others who love stamping?

However when you are with hundreds of other demonstrators who all have the same bag – I find it is fun to have yours easily identifiable with a special name tag. So here is what I came up with for our Charlotte event.

I love the little charms I’ve added to the tag too. They are so much fun to make – and I found some beads that I think went nicely with what I expect to be some of our new 2019-2021 In Colors!

After the event they can be added to our key chains if they’d like. And to help them jot down all the great ideas – everyone needs a note book and pen. I used our Crafting Forever stamp set (14955/143958) and the Layering Circles Framelits Dies (141705) to create the sentiment.

And I used the sentiment set from Sale-a-bration for the inside. I am truly blessed by my Team, they inspire me every time we gather.

I’ll be sharing a tutorial for these when I get back – they were so much fun to make! I’m afraid I just ran out of time this week.

And finally some post its so that we can flag all those new products that we want! I know this years Annual Catalog is going to be a great one. (I’m sure my shopping list will be a long one) – I can’t wait to see it!

I really like the way that the note pad and flag holders turned out. They were made with a demonstrator supply folder that I cut apart. I love the flowers so I was happy I was able to make the flowers on the front of the folder the focal point, and the back of the folder had our logo which was perfect for the flags I thought.

I had planned on sharing a video tutorial with you today of the final gift, but my IPad apparently didn’t like something I did since the file is corrupted, so I’ll be sharing that with you next week as soon as I can re film the project.

Enjoy your weekend and stop back by next week to see the OnStage fun and a sneak peek at the new 2019 Annual Catalog.

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

ÂĽ 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!

Team Winter Weekend Retreat Swaps

This past weekend I had the privilege of gathering with my team for our 7th Annual Winter Weekend Retreat – A full 3 days of fellowship, fun and of course stamping.

I love these weekends since it’s a chance for everyone to let their hair down and relax during this extended period of time together. We share, learn, and get to know each other a bit better. It’s like a big slumber party with your best friends –

On Saturday afternoon we hold our Shoe box Swap and I always love to see what everyone comes up with. So today I thought I’d share some of the cards with you that my team members did.

These first two cards use the Classic Garage Suite of products found on page 42-43 of the Occasions Catalog.

I just love this suite of products and the Geared Up Garage Bundle (148590) with it’s coordinating dies. Perfect for creating card for the dudes in our lives. After all does anyone know a guy who doesn’t like cars?

And this next card uses the Beauty Abounds Bundle (150617). If you love this bundle as much as I do why not sign up for my February Class? Not only will you be able to get this great bundle in the class we’ll spend the afternoon making projects together. Click HERE to learn more about my Beauty Abounds Class.

If you haven’t seen this Specialty Designer Series Paper yet in person – it is absolutely gorgeous! The Floral Romance pack includes two different Vellum patterns along with 2 double sided patterns. So it’s a great value since you’ll get multiples of each.

And how about this card made with the Sheltering Tree stamp set (137163) found in the Annual Catalog on page 140? We used this simple technique of stamping twice. Once onto the card front and again onto to the circles to add a pop of color.


And here is a fun technique card Daisy Delight stamp set (143669) and Daisy Punch (143713) from the Annual Catalog.

Do you recognize the sentiment? It’s from the Butterfly Gala stamp set (148580). And the All My Love Designer Series Paper (148576) both can be found in the Occasions Catalog.

Watch some tutorials coming soon for these fancy folds – I hope to work on them in the next week or so.

Blue Mountain Stampers’ Shoe Box Fun

Last week we I held our annual Blue Mountain Stampers’ Luncheon and along with it we had a Shoe Box Swap this year – so there was lots of stamping going on!

We began our Luncheon with a dish to pass – always yummy new recipes to try. I love “pot lucks” how about you?

The table was decorated – and everyone had a little gift bag waiting for them.

The bags were filled with a team coffee cup, note book I made, and a team pen.

We also celebrated lots of team accomplishments for the past quarter.

Want to see some of the Shoe Box Swaps we made?

These first two were created using the Love What You Love stamp set (148042) and coordinating Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (148926)

And here are some cute tags we made using the Candy Cane Builder Punch (148011) and Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper (146921).

If you noticed the Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon that we used for the tags and wondering where you can find it. It’s from our  2019 Occasions Catalog and will be available in January.

And here is a cute gift card holder using the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set (142043) and coordinating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch (140396). Aren’t the little antlers cute? They were made with the Sprig Punch (148012) from the Holiday Catalog.

Do you recognize the sentiment? It’s from our Farmhouse Christmas Stamp set (148478).

And here is a simple but elegant card using the Stylish Christmas stamp set (146770/146773) and Softly Falling Embossing Folder (139672).

Of course, what could be better than swaps. So here are some of the swaps members brought starting with the 3ds treats filled with yummy goodies.

And finally a fancy fold card.

What a wonderful time we had that afternoon. I have such a wonderful team of stampers – each and everyone of them bring their own special talent to our group as you can see.

Here is our selfie from the afternoon. (I’m still getting use to my new selfie stick. LOL, can you tell?)

Team Fun & the 2019 Occasions Catalog!

Yesterday, I gathered with my team to share the excitement of OnStage with them during our OnStage Stream Event. I normally do this these events the Friday after the OnStage, but no one seemed to mind that we had to reschedule due to my illness. Excitement to see the catalog and products was high.

I had the classroom decorated with OnStage Goodies

Everyone received a little something

And of course a little taste of Orlando with the Mini Mouse Hand Sanitizer I shared with you earlier HERE.

The boxes contained key chain with charms and the beautiful dragonflies Sue made for me earlier.

We shared, everyone won a new accessory from the Occasions Catalog in our very own prize patrol,

and of course stamped with the new products!

Here are the Make ‘n Takes we made. This first one uses the Butterfly Gala Suite of products that you’re just going to LOVE!

And this second one uses the Piece of Cake stamp set

Watch for tutorials coming soon

You can see the new 2019 Occasions goodies on the tables in the classroom, way in the back – I forgot to take pictures of those tables. Sigh. But the good news is I did a sneak peek video for you so you can see them close up!

2019 Occasions Catalog Product Purchase Premiere Goodies Video

More OnStage Swaps & Team Gifts

I’ve got soo many great cards to share with you I’m not sure where to start – so today’s post  will be focusing on some of the cards I made during Sherrie’s Shoe box Swap again. All the sets can be found in our Annual Catalog.

This first one using the Floral Frames stamp set (146505/146508) we heat embossed the image and sentiment using White Embossing Powder and then used our Smoky Slate Blends Combo Pack (145058) to color in the images. So simple – but clearly beautiful as you can see.

And this next card uses the Friendly Expressions stamp set (146670/146673).

Done in Night of Navy and Granny Apple Green with a splatter of our Frost White Shimmer Paint (147046) I think the combination is quite striking.

These two were my favorites from today’s cards – but here are some more great cards too.

How about this fun and vibrant card using the Varied Vases stamp set (146644) and the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper (146289)?

And these next two cards are made using the Dandelion Wishes stamp set (146744/146747).

Or how about this one using the Hanging Garden stamp set (146236/146239) and color blocking?

And the final card today is one that uses the Enjoy Live stamp set (148190)?

Can you pick just one favorite? LOL! why not leave me a comment and let me know?

OnStage Team Goodies

And now a little more about OnStage Live in Orlando – I love making these little name tags for my team for event event, after all when there are over 6,000 of the same bag roaming around you want to make sure you can find it, right? And so here is what I came up with for this events bag tag.

Each tag had 3 special charms to commemorate the event plus a special charm that my fellow team member Sue made for the end of each.

She created such a lovely dragonfly charm for me with just wire, beads and pliers. She made it look sooo easy that I can’t wait to give it a try myself when I get a chance. Although something tells me it won’t be quite as easy as she made it look! But then that is the great part about being part of a team, we all have different strengths that we share with each other!

They really looked nice on our bags I think.

I also tried my hand at some special organizers for everyone that a fellow leader shared with me.

I love the way they turned out and the little post it holders with flags for marking our new catties!

And what can I say I was having way too much fun playing in my classroom – so everyone received a little OnStage Live Survival Kit too.

Filled with everything you might need for our 3 day event. I found this cute little list and adjusted it to my needs.

What can I say, I appreciate and value my team and the richness they bring to my life! They are truly a blessing.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more wonderful swaps and some of the display boards from OnStage too!
