December Stamp Club Creations

December Stamp Club and Cookie Exchange!

The ladies asked for Home Decor Ideas for the holidays.  
I brought with me some of my projects from home.  Although made with retired product they are still great ideas.  Framed art, banners, pin boards, wreaths, saved gift boxes, etc, etc.  

I took an idea from my VERY FIRST convention and turned their trio of wooden houses into the start of a Christmas Village.  The ladies LOVED IT!!  All left club wanting to go home and finish their village with more pieces. From the discussion I think their menfolf had a "Christmas Honey-do list of cutting wood!"

I wish the pictures could really bring to life the sparkle on these houses!

Our second project was decorating candles...cinnamon scented candles at that!

The cookie exchange went over very well!!  I was so please that the ladies jumped on board with their creative packaging.  I have a prize of a Gold Encore Pad to the winner.  Ann was the group favorite with her apron themed baggies. (pictured below)  We also included our recipes with our bags of goodies.

 My cookie package for the cookie exchange.  Dark Chocolate Chunk Eggnog Cookies.  YUM!!!

Happy Stamping!

November Stamp Club Creations

'Tis the time of gift giving.  So for November Stamp Club we focused on just that!  
Using the NEW EVELOPE PUNCH BOARD  (do you have one yet? NO!?!?....head over HERE to get one, they are a MUST HAVE!!)  we created our own gift card holders.
...holding what else?  A Tim's Card! LOL

Our second project, once again focused on gift giving in the form of a money/ticket holder card.
We used the starburst technique on the front of the card.

Here are two links for the starburst techniques.  These lovely ladies have two different ways of doing it. One is measured and one is willy nilly.  LOL   I went with the willy was FUN!!! 

Happy Stamping!!

October 2013 Stamp Club

Here are the projects that we made for our October Stamp Club.

Our first project was using the Painter's tape Technique.  The ladies LOVED it! So simple but creates a wow background.  Used the all time favorite Lovely as a tree stamp set!  Every stamper I stamp with has purchased this set.  SO versatile!

The second card we did was using the NEW thinlit card dies!  We used the circle thinlit.  There is also a label thinlit.  

Happy Stamping!!!

Big Shot Bag

I had drooled over this for years.
It always fell to the bottom of the wish list both because of budget and because I needed other things from the catalogue to demo with.

Well, guess what happened?  I got a call from my BFF in the fall.  "Shallon, you have to get online NOW! The Big Shot bag is on the clearance rack!"
I don't think I have ever moved so fast!  LOL  I was online and ordering that sucker ASAP!
Here is my beautiful big shot bag.  I am in love!  

Pink, polka dots, sturdy, and protects one the best crafting tools.  Who could ask for more?

My point?  Why am I showing you this if it happened in the fall?
You never know what AWESOME goodies Stampin' UP! is going to have there.
Great deals on great products!
A Clearance Rack BLITZ is going on now....get the products before they are SOLD OUT.
