Freezin’ Fun, Team Shoe Box & More

Every year we gather as a team in December for our Annual Team Luncheon which includes a Shoe Box Swap. For me it is one of my favorite meetings as there is lots of food, laughter, sharing, and stamping. And while things were a bit different this year we still had a great time together bringing a dish to share and a stamping too.

The classroom was set up with social distancing in mind

And everyone received a little team gift from me too

which included some items to use in the Shoe Box Swap I designed (I’ll be sharing that project with you soon) along with some Team lanyard charms and title recognition.

Yes, these are Stampin’ Up! embellishments lol. They can be used for all kinds of things!

After the luncheon we had fun stamping a wide variety of projects. It’s part of what I love about gathering, everyone has a different style and shares what they love to do. All of the projects were great and I couldn’t choose a favorite.

This first card is a Center Step card stamped with one of my favorite sets from the Mini, the Freezin’ Friends Bundle (155176)

In addition to the Freezin’ Friend Bundle this card also uses the Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper (153512) and Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder (153576). We colored the cute little animals using our Stampin’ Blends and added some Frost White Shimmer Paint (147046) to the trees.

This next card uses the Back on Your Feet stamp set (149385) and is a fun fold.

Also colored with our Stampin’ Blends it uses each of the images to create 3 panels for a great get well card.

How cute is that? And the final card was another get well using the Healing Hugs stamp set (148223) and the Boho Indigo Designer Series Paper that is part of the Boho Indigo Product Medley (153132). Isn’t it great we have a refill (153925) for this kit so we can keep creating?

And now for some fun 3d Shoe Box Swaps. This first one is a cute little 2×2 box using our Friend Like You stamp set (149237).

I just love the way the Champagne Foil sheet (144748) picks up the color from the Cinnamon Cider Designer Series Paper (153070) and of course the Snowflake Splendor Ribbon (153548) adds a bit more sparkle to the project.

And how about a fun décor item? Here is an inexpensive photo frame we made using the Beautiful World stamp set (152994), Playful Alphabet Dies (152706) and our beautiful, World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper (152491).

Now all I need to do is pop in a photo. And my final project I wanted to share with you is the fun little get well mini tissue holder. Perfect to brighten someone’s day who is feeling a bit under the weather.

The bright and cheerful project uses the Painted Poppies (151599) and Timeless Tulips (151164) stamp sets along with our Stampin’ Blends and the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper (152486).

And here are 2 more fun projects, a little paper box that’s been painted and decorated with our Forever Fern Bundle (154094)

and cute little nail file holder using the Little Treats Bundle (155204) and Toil Tidings Designer Series Paper (150432)

whew… Lots of stamping going on like I said and such great projects!

Whale Done ClassLast Day to Hold your Spot

Geared Up Garage

It the week before Father’s Day so I thought it would be a great time to share some wonderful sets that include Father’s Day sentiments. Today’s set is the Geared Up Garage stamp set (148590). It’s perfect for our guys who love those classic cars. And it is a perfect choice for my guy since he’s a classic card enthusiast. We spent a lot of time those first years going to car shows and swap meets. (I’ll share a photo with you later in the post of Larry’s baby with you.)

This first card combines the beautiful World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper (152491)

I love the way that the Brass Foil (153057) has been used for the gears and pulls out the foiling in the Designer Series Paper too. The combination of Bermuda Bay and Basic Black is quite striking in person.

And this next card uses the color theme from my husbands car in addition to some simple stamping which makes it a great choice if you are just building your stamping collection. Classic – the Basic Black, Smoky Slate and Real Red makes an impact.

The Geared Up Garage stamp set also has coordinating Garage Gears Dies (151812) which make it a favorite!

On a personal note, here is the photo I told you I’d share. Back when we were first married my husband was working on his 1957 Chevy that he got when he was in the Army. He hauled it all the way from California back to Georgia. Here is a snap shot of it.

He had just completed restoring it before we got married, so we recreated my parents wedding photo from 1958 with it. We’ve been married 33 years now, but it seems just like yesterday at times. I’m wearing my mother’s dress, with a corset and big wooden hoop under it. That was an experience!
