Sweet as a Peach Treat Tag, Team fun & more

How about some swaps, team time and a fun treat tutorial? Today I thought I’d share what we’ve been doing as a my group recently. I’ve got a great team and we have a lot of fun together when we gather each month, so I thought I’d share some of the groups swaps first. I’ll start with some of the Sale-a-bration cards.

this first card uses the lovely Feels like Home stamp set (Sale-a-bration 156607) and has been colored with our Watercolor Pencils (141709 & 149014) assortments for a softer look. And this next card was created using the Delicate Dahlia stamp set (Sale-a-bration 156601) and Merry Merlot for a bold look.

If you don’t recognize the polka dots it’s from the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper pack (Sale-a-bration 156630) which as you can see is quite versatile. A bit of fussy cutting and some Wink of Stella finish off this lovely card. And how about this big bold sunflower?

This card uses the Celebrate Sunflowers (152517) and the coordinating Sunflower Dies (152704) and it’s also a fun buckle card, the sentiment tucks into a punched slot behind the sunflower.

Not only do we do team meetings each month, but we also had a team retreat in August, so I thought I’d share a couple of the swaps from that today. This first project uses the Friends are Like Seashells Bundle (159516) and Seashells 3D Embossing Folder (154309).

And how about some pansy fun using the Pansy Petals Suite (155810)? A simple cutting technique creates this criss-cross pattern for the card front.

We also made a fun little box that was filled with some treats.

I really love this Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (155807) and the fact you can cut tons of flowers out with the bundle’s dies and isn’t the little box adorable? Want to see more team fun? This month was our bi-annual Peak Princess event. What is that? It’s a special day filled with pampering that my team can earn. This time we made 3 special projects, won prizes and enjoyed a nice Hawaiian inspired luncheon together.

The pulled pork and Mango Salsa we had were a hit so I thought I’d share the recipes with you. The pulled pork is soooo easy with just 3 ingredients and you make in the crock pot too! And you may find the Mango Salsa addictive – eat it with chips, or you can add it on top of fish or shrimp taco too.

  • Crock Pot Kaula Pulled Pork Recipe PDF
  • Mango Salsa Recipe PDF

And as a little gift everyone received a charm for their lanyards that was placed in this cute Treat Tag marking this occasion.

Want to see how I made this little Treat Tag? I’ve whipped up a quick video tutorial for you and a PDF with the complete supply list.
