Jar of Love

Mason jars are right on trend and the Jar of Love stamp set (141587) gives us lots of options for creating hand crafted cards using mason jar images for all kinds of occasions.

Check out these wonderful cards that I’ve received using the Jar of Love Bundle (142342).

This first card is a shaker card and I love the way that Diane made this fun colorful card by simply using the 1/2″ circle punch to create the jar spilling candy from it. Both the jars filled with candy and fireflies move when shaken. How cute, right?

And this card has a fun fold that opens up to make an impact.

So simple in it’s design, but it brings the wonder of summer with it.

And finally a card from my team mate, Cindy. It reminds me of that game at carnivals when you toss the ping pong ball into the jar – Don’t know why that comes to mind LOL! Cindy used the Hello You Thinlits Dies (137363) for the sentiment.

The Jar of Love Bundle saves you 10% when you purchase the stamp set and Everyday Jar Framelits together and who can resist that?

Hello You Thinlits

Have you seen the Hello You Thinlit Dies? When I saw these great little words I could see all kinds of uses for them. There are four different words in the set and this look is right on trend. Check out this great little card I made recently using a scrap piece of card stock.

Hello You

After I cut out this “hello” for a different project I saw this left over scrap piece laying on my table and thought – why not give it a try? Well as you can see the negative space from this scrap makes a great focal point for my card. Who’d have thought? Trash to treasure. LOL!!

Blue Mountain Stampers’ Winter Weekend Retreat

Last week I mentioned I’d share with you some photos from my team retreat, but I got side tracked and forgot. So I thought I’d share them with you today – I hold these retreats three times a year for my team members. It’s like a big slumber party – although a lot of times we don’t get a lot of sleep since once we start creating we don’t want to stop! LOL.

Blue Mountain Stampers' Winter Weekend Retreat 2015 (3)

These events are a lot of fun, laid back and relaxing. A nice time away from every day responsibilities.

Blue Mountain Stampers' Winter Weekend Retreat 2015 (2)

Team members come and go based on their schedules. One day, evening, the Shoebox Swap,  or the whole weekend. What ever works best with their schedules!

Blue Mountain Stampers' Winter Weekend Retreat 2015 (1)

It’s a wonderful time of sharing and creating and everyone has access to my classroom items to create. (These events are typically tied to a new catalog launch so we can have fun playing and trying out items that we may not have gotten ourselves.) It’s a lot of fun since everyone does a show and tell before we start of their new goodies!

Here is one of the cards I created for my upcoming Coffee & Cards class on January 27th (There is still time to sign up for this event you can Click HERE to see my calendar of events and more information). It uses our new Crazy About You bundle (139324/139325/138873).

Hello You thinlits Crazy About You Coffee & Cards card

I used this card as my Shoebox Swap on Saturday afternoon – everyone got to make one at the Retreat on Saturday afternoon.

And here is a cute little treat that Janette gave everyone when she arrived on Saturday morning.

Bow Builder Punch Valentine treat

Adorable, right? Janette used the new Bow Builder Punch (137414), so the bows were quick and easy! And of course the cut out was created with the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies (125599) great for all kinds of Valentine’s Day projects.

I put together my Hello Life Project Kit (137949). I still need to add the photos to it,

Hello You Project Kit

but wow there were a ton of items left after I finished the kit – I can’t wait to use them for other projects or maybe do a second version of the kit so I can change things out. Of course that is if my daughter Kaitlin doesn’t run off with it – she immediately wanted it for her dorm when she saw it! What a great private class this kit makes (ask me about this option so you can earn a free kit).
