2013 Holiday Projects

The 2013 Holiday Party was so much fun.  Thank you to those who attended and joined me as we made some fun projects!  We had so much food too!  Thank you to everyone who brought a dish to share.  It was enjoyed by all!
Here are the projects that we made:  Using the new envelope punch board, we made a cute Santa box.  The box has a belly band belt and inside is where we stored our other projects.
We made 3 tags using the deco thinlet dies on cherry cobbler cardstock and stamped an image from the Christmas Tagables photopolymer stamp set using real red.  This tag was also embossed using the Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
Here is the back of the tags:
 We also made these 3 tags using white cardstock and stamped snowflake images in Marina Mist from the Endless Wishes photopolymer stamp set.  This set is now SOLD OUT!  I'm so glad that I ordered mine early.  Unfortunately, SU will not be reordering this set as it is too close to Christmas. 
We made 3 cards with envelopes.  I love these notecards with envelopes - the best deal ever.  Gotta share with you that you can get 20 cards with envelopes for only $5.95, how awesome is that!?  The card stamped using the Endless Wishes photopolymer stamp set in cherry cobbler and old olive.  Then we embossed the card using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and added a strip of washi tape. We stamped a snowflake from the Festive Flurry stamp set and cut out with the Festive Flurry thinlet die.  Popped it on with a stampin' dimensional and a rhinestone to complete the card.  For the envelope, we cut out liners using paper from the Season of Style paper stack.
Time to work on my own personal holiday projects now.  Meanwhile, my brain is thinking of projects for my 2014 class in January...I'm open to any suggestions!  I'm thinking of making some projects for Valentine's Day!
That's it for now.  Thank you for stopping by to check out my post.  Hopefully,  I will have time to post the projects from the previous classes...sorry so late with those!

A Holiday Party to Thank my Customers

The holidays are here, can you believe it?  What I can't believe is that time escapes me all every month and even more so these days, I'm having a hard time keeping up with my blog and posting all of the projects from my classes.  I'm going to have to get better about making some time to post!  I can't promise regular posting, but I can promise that I am going to try harder!
Today, I'm posting a little sneak peek of the projects that I have created for my customers and downline who have attended my classes during the year.  These projects will be offered at my holiday party at no charge, as my way of saying THANK YOU to you for your support of my classes and business.  Without you, I would not be able to continue as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
I was only able to finalize the projects this past weekend, thank goodness it was a long holiday weekend for me!  The original date of the party WAS supposed to be happening this Saturday, November 16 that was until I had a house of sick kids which delayed my creation of the projects.  I'll explain more about the "kids" another time.
The NEW date for my holiday party will be on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 24 at 11:00 a.m. at my home.  I will be providing snacks, drinks and these fun holiday projects!  If you would like to bring a dish to share, please let me know so I can tell you what dishes I already have to avoid duplication.
If you have attended any of my classes this year and would like to join me to celebrate the holidays on November 24, please RSVP via email no later than November 20.  You must attend in person to receive your project kit.
Looking forward to celebrating the holidays early with you!  Don't forget to email me to RSVP no later than November 20.
