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!

Inspiring Iris

One of my mom’s favorite flowers in her garden are her bearded iris. Her garden was filled with color and a bunch of different varieties and sizes when I was a child. A love of gardening that was passed down from her mother and her Aunt Adeline. I still remember those walks through the yard sharing each bed and talking about what was in them. Not a skill that was passed down to me I’m afraid. So this stamp set is more my skill level and it reminds me of those childhood strolls.

Here is a lovely card done in shades of Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape.

I wish you could see the shimmer of the black embossed outline and sentiment, I’m not sure it shows up well in the photo.

Just a quick note about our un orderable items since this project includes a couple of them – if you find that an item in our 2019 Annual Catalog is not showing up in my online store it’s because it is in back order and we are waiting for stock to arrive. It has not been discontinued. If you have any questions about an item you are looking for that doesn’t show up in the Online Store please let me know. I’m happy to let you know when they are available again.

I’ll include the supply list below for you so you can make one too.

Today’s post is a quick one, seems I have to go to the grocery store again since there isn’t anything in the house to eat. Ugh….How is it I can go and spend $200, but still have nothing my guys want? LOL!
