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!

In case you are wondering, anyone who has purchased the starter kit from myself or one of my team members, gets to enjoy Blue Mountain Stampers’ perks…like monthly make n takes!

Merry Moose

This little guy immediately drew my attention when I first saw the 2019 Holiday Catalog back in August. I’m not sure what it is about this set, whether its the fact that it has a punch, is filled with nature and wildlife options or the sentiments – I think it is a great addition to my collection.

Now that you’ve seen the set check out these great cards

This first one is simply gorgeous in person as it is a fancy fold and creates a wonderful winter scene.

This fold is created with a few score lines and will fold flat for mailing. It does have a couple of layers that the moose are on which gives it more depth to the card

base: 4 1/4″ x 8″ ; scored at 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″, 5 1/2″, and 6 3/4″

The front snow layer is 5 1/2″ wide and then the two – 1/2″ strips are just 4 inches long and scored on each end at 1/2″. These were added at two different heights and attached to the inside panels.

I can’t wait to try one of these myself. I’ll be sharing a tutorial when I do for sure!

And here is a another card done in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso

Both of these cards use the Woodland 3D Embossing Folder (139673) which is currently on back order and unavailable to order. But no worries it should be back in stock by mid November. Email me if you would like me to add you to my list and I’ll let you know when it is available again.
