Winter Gifts Note Card Tutorial

What a great surprise it is to find my Paper Pumpkin Kit in my mail box every month – it’s a little taste of crafting happiness as I open the box. The kit this month coordinating with the lovely cards from October, but it was a stand alone kit with it’s 24 Tags.

My box was filled with goodies that I couldn’t resist using for other project too, such as today’s card.

I just fell in love with this bold Poppy Parade cardinal piece that was included.

Blue Mountain Stampers’ Shoe Box Fun

Last week we I held our annual Blue Mountain Stampers’ Luncheon and along with it we had a Shoe Box Swap this year – so there was lots of stamping going on!

We began our Luncheon with a dish to pass – always yummy new recipes to try. I love “pot lucks” how about you?

The table was decorated – and everyone had a little gift bag waiting for them.

The bags were filled with a team coffee cup, note book I made, and a team pen.

We also celebrated lots of team accomplishments for the past quarter.

Want to see some of the Shoe Box Swaps we made?

These first two were created using the Love What You Love stamp set (148042) and coordinating Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (148926)

And here are some cute tags we made using the Candy Cane Builder Punch (148011) and Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper (146921).

If you noticed the Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon that we used for the tags and wondering where you can find it. It’s from our  2019 Occasions Catalog and will be available in January.

And here is a cute gift card holder using the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set (142043) and coordinating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch (140396). Aren’t the little antlers cute? They were made with the Sprig Punch (148012) from the Holiday Catalog.

Do you recognize the sentiment? It’s from our Farmhouse Christmas Stamp set (148478).

And here is a simple but elegant card using the Stylish Christmas stamp set (146770/146773) and Softly Falling Embossing Folder (139672).

Of course, what could be better than swaps. So here are some of the swaps members brought starting with the 3ds treats filled with yummy goodies.

And finally a fancy fold card.

What a wonderful time we had that afternoon. I have such a wonderful team of stampers – each and everyone of them bring their own special talent to our group as you can see.

Here is our selfie from the afternoon. (I’m still getting use to my new selfie stick. LOL, can you tell?)

Gift Bags for Regionals

Yesterday I showed you my Tic Tac Regional goodie for my room mates. You can click HERE to see that post. Well I was having so much fun making Regional roomie gift items for my TEAM that I thought I would make a cute bag to hold everything for them. So here is what I came up with.

Now, I thought I was being smart by just varying the tissue paper in the two gift bags. However, I quickly realized that since I personalized the notebooks with their initials I wasn’t going to remember which bag was which. My CRS, as my kids call it, was kicking in big time. Sooo.. I got to thinking about bag tags making it easy to identify their individual gifts. Voila! I found my extra stash of name tags that I’ve used before (when I made tags for my daughter’s birthday gift of luggage this past spring) and came up with these cute little fall themed tags for the bags.

My TEAM loved them and quickly moved them to their bags they were taking to the Regional that held their swaps.

Here is a close up of the tags. What do you think?

Here are the finished bags with tags – front and back.

and here is my TEAM member Janie getting her bag

and my downline Cindy opening her notebook when we arrived in Chattanooga at our hotel Friday night.

I’ve got such a great TEAM and we have such fun stamping together! The fellowship of stamping is one of the best parts that I love about the Stampin’ Up! experience.
