Team Time fun with the Come to Gather Suite

Last week I held my monthly Team Meeting, it is one of my favorite days of the month. We gather, share, stamp, and enjoy time with each other. I’m blessed with a wonderful team that is also a great group of stampers. Because we all have been stamping for different lengths of time and have different styles, I always look forward to seeing what they have been creating.

Want to see? The theme for our swap this month was fall and none of the projects disappoint!

Here is a great treat box with a drawer that slides out

filled with a banana Twinkie, yum.

And a cute little sticky note holder using our Stitched Nested Label Dies.

And here is a quick and easy wrap for some mini chocolate bars – the sentiment is from the Painted Harvest stamp set found in our Annual Catalog.

And a few more cards

Pat created this next project using our Copper Embossing Powder and the trifold card measurements I shared with you earlier

And this final card uses our Gift of Fall Add On Note Card, the coordinating Paper Pumpkin stamp set, along with the Seasonal Layers Dies and Rectangle Stitched Dies.

I love the way that our Paper Pumpkin Kits coordinating with our products, allowing us to have even more options.

And of course every team meeting includes celebrating accomplishments, stamping, and learning new things too.

We’ll be heading off to our Stampin’ Up! #OnStage event this weekend, a first for many on the team, so you’ll want to stop back by to see what that’s all about. Stampin’ Up! events are always a lot of fun, a chance to meet others who love to stamp, and learn new things, and of course prize patrol is always a hit with everyone! Stampin’ Up! is always generous with its demonstrators.

Holiday Catalog Kick Off Gather Together Make n Take

It finally feels a little bit like fall here in North Georgia with some cooler temperatures, while it is still in the 80s there’s a hint of cooler weather coming our way. And after spending the evening last night with my daughter and her band, watching them and the other county’s High School bands perform their half time shows it feels more like fall to me too.

Check out this fun fall card that we make using the Come to Gather Suite of products found in the Holiday Catalog.

This suite is filled with those colors that make us think of fall and I’m loving the Come to Gather Ribbon Combo Pack with it’s rich satin edge ribbon and linen thread – perfect for a range of products.

Today’s card uses the Brick & Motar 3d Embossing Folder to create some texture and interest in the background. Our embossing folders are perfect for this and make it quick and easy too.

Want to see how this card comes together? Check out my video tutorial and of course a printable PDF too.

#imbringingbirthdaysback with the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set

Today’s card is the one I designed for my November Birthday cards that I’ll be sending out today. This birthday card uses a fun technique that is one of my favorites to create fall colored leaves. It is called the Baby Wipe Technique.

This card layout is also one of my favorites since it is clean and simple but still packs a wow. And with the Baby Wipe Technique everyone will wonder how you created leaves with fall color too.

I’ve whipped up a quick tutorial so you can recreate the Baby Wipe Technique for your projects!

Country Home Folding Box & Tutorial

Today’s project was one that I made for my Holiday Catalog Kick Off this past Saturday. It’s a great little box and it folds flat which makes it a lot of fun and super when you need to travel with something.

It uses the Country Home stamp set a fast becoming a favorite of mine and who can resist the Tile Tin Dynamic Embossing Folder – so perfect for a vintage feel.

I found these yummy little Russell Stover Pecan Delights as treats to go inside. I think the wrapper looks like Cajun Craze, how about you?
