Shoe Box Fun & Team Time

Each December my Team holds a Shoe Box Swap and a pot luck lunch during our monthly meeting. It’s a chance to share, enjoy each others company and stamp together.

The table has a holiday flair to it and this year I was able to use the Holiday Catalog inspired Toile Tidings Grid Paper (153984) as place mats for everyone.

In addition I used the Winter Gifts Paper Pumpkin to create quick and easy gift bags to hold their gifts.

These bags included a Team Lanyard with name tags for everyone, along with a special little charm commemorating the event. My Silver team members had a extra little bling added.

While I included a basic name tag for them, I also challenged everyone to create their own name tag showing their personality! It will be fun to see what everyone comes up with next month.

Whew… in addition to our Shoe Box we also made our Make ‘n Takes so there was a lot of stamping going on!

Want to see some of the Shoe Box Swaps now?

This first one is a fancy fold and uses the Inspiring Iris stamp set (149268)

I just love the color combination of Calypso Coral and Basic Gray used for this project.

And here is a fun way to package some hot chocolate using the Cup of Christmas stamp set (150491) and Wrapped in Perfect Designer Series Paper (149596). What fun these candy canes are Oreo flavored and there are some ginger snaps tucked in there too!

And how about this little ornament made with the Merry Moose Bundle and the Night Before Santa Designer Series Paper (150437)?

I really love the fact that Stampin’ Up! will be bringing back this set and the punch next holiday season – You can still order the stamp set (150494) now and then get the punch next year.

And how about this lovely card using the Nature’s Beauty stamp set (150528)?

And this last card is a sneak peek of the special Sale-a-bration stamp set, Little Ladybug, that you can earn for Hosting a private class or party.

Why not set up a time now for January to gather with your friends? Sale-a-bration is a great reason to gather together with friends and stamp!

Cup of Christmas

Any one who knows me knows I can’t resist a coffee cup, I’ve been collecting them for years on my vacations, so when I saw the Cup of Christmas Stamp set (150491) I just knew I had to get it. Add the fact that this set includes a NEW type of stamp call Reversibles and you have a winner for this holiday season.

While the stamp set can be used traditionally as is, you can also use the back side of the stamp giving you a mirror image of the coffee cup – such a simple idea that makes stamping mirror images of this cup so easy!

Here are some fun cards made with this Cup of Christmas Bundle (153025). This first one uses our Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper (149596) and the Brick & Motar 3D Embossing Folder (149643).

And how about this next card that uses the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper (149488) as a back drop for this festive holiday mug?

A bit a dazzle has been added to the mug with our Real Red Glitter Paper (150427) and Toile Tiding Glitter Enamel Dots (150433).

And this final card uses the Nobel Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper (149493) for the cup – this foil paper adds a rich glazed feel to the cup.
