A Visit from Santa

I love pampering my Team, the Blue Mountain Stampers and this past Tuesday when we gathered together for our Annual Christmas party that’s just what I tried to do.

We gathered together for fun, fellowship and of course a bit of stamping! Everyone brought a dish and we enjoyed a wonderful turkey dinner together with all the trimmings. (I love this part of the evening since it is a lot of fun trying new dishes and enjoying each others.)

Santa made an appearance too!

Notice even our dog, Chewie was in the spirit!

After we retreated to the classroom and enjoyed some stamping together.  And for those that were unable to attend On Stage in Tampa with me, I wanted to create a little mini On Stage event for them.

And of course that box is filled with our NEW products! So everyone had a chance to see the NEW accessories and Designer Series Papers and stamp with some of the new products from the upcoming 2016 Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs!

And what party would be complete without gifts?  Everyone was greeted with this a couple of little goodies when they got to their seats. One had to be chocolate, right?

I love these little boxes that I created using the  Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper (139592) and the Bow Builder Punch (137414). I think they turned out really cute.

And what do they contain? Well…….

A Bone Folder for everyone that has been decorated with a charm. I made each Bone Folder Charm  with our Winter Wonderland Embellishments (139621) along with different beading so we can tell them apart when we stamp together. LOL! (Of course, they have some blue since we’re the Blue Mountain Stampers.) I made these to coordinate with their scissor charms that they received earlier this year. (Want to see the scissor charms?

The Clothespin Santa Hat  is sooooo easy to make!

Want to learn how to make these quick and easy treats? Well all you need is a few supplies. (You may even have these. If not let me know and I can help you out.)

Here’s how:

Punch out a Tree using the Red Glimmer Paper and clip off the trunk. Using the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper punch out a circle and Word Window. Attach to the tree piece. After it dries attach the hat to the Clothespin.

That’s it – quick and easy!!! But I warn you, these are so cute you’ll want to make lots of these! LOL
