Winter Weekend Team Fun

This past weekend my Team, the Blue Mountain Stampers, gathered for a few days of stamping, sharing and fun. We gather 3 times a year for these retreats and it is always a blast!

Cindy, gave everyone these sweet little Valentine boxes.

This time there were 7 of us – here is a early morning shot of the space on Saturday morning before the fun began.

This time on Saturday after our Shoe box Swap I introduced the Dice Game – and it seemed to be a hit!

Have you ever played? This game is always fun and it is fast paced!

Here are the rules. There are pans with 2 dice in them, all the prizes are put in the center of the circle. You roll the dice and then pass the pan, if you roll a double you get to choose a prize.

Then after all the prizes are gone from the center the timer is set. Then you start the game again, but this time you steal from each others piles of prizes. Seems there is always one that is highly sought after and is stolen frequently!

When the timer goes off the game is done and everyone gets to open their prizes!

We had so much fun doing this I’m sure we’ll be including it again!

And now on to the cards.

Want to see what we made in our Shoe box Swap? Everyone made great cards to share.

This first one uses the Petal Palette bundle (145973/145974. If you love this bundle of products check out my Class & Events, we’ll be using this in my February 3rd class to create a wonderful stationary box and cards. CLICK HERE for my Calendar of Events.

And here is a elegant card made using the Hold on to Hope bundle (145969/145970) and the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack (144168).

I love the thinlits in the bundle – this larger cross has beautiful detail and the delicate cross in the set not only cuts the cross out, but also embosses a design on it.

And this final card uses the Brusho Crystal Colours (144101) and the Beautiful Day stamp set (145912/145915) found in the Occasions Catalog. Want to learn more about this fun new product? Check out my March class HERE.
