Team Meeting Treat and Make and Take Projects

Our team meeting of Stampin' Up! demos was held on Saturday. I love to host the meetings at my home, but we're just verging on being too numerous to make it comfortable. Until we must find a bigger place I'm happy to have my wonderful team here.

I have a big board room table that was found put out for spring clean up one year (truly!) and we gather around that. This month our theme was Easter/Spring and each place held a little treat of Subles Candy Dots and chocolate!

We do at least three Make and Takes at each meeting,

The first one was a case I made from Dawn Olchefske  whose creations regularly inspire me!

The colours used are Marina Mist and Mint Macaron (I love this combination!) and the images are from the Awsomely Artistic stamp set (p. 125 in the Annual Catalogue). The sentiment is one of my favourites as it is so versatile, and is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set (p. 124 in the Annual Catalogue).

The ribbon is so sparkly and ties really well, it is the Pool Party 3/8" Glitter Ribbon found in the Occasions Catalogue on p. 9. As you can see it works well with the Marina Mist and Mint Macaron (even better in real life than the photo shows).

The rhinestones give more sparkle along with the Clear Wink of Stella that is on the dragon fly's wings.

Our second Make and Take was an adorable magnetic bunny, and the project was led by Carolyn. Such a cutie that could be added to cards or gifts or your refrigerator collection. Punch Art is amazing and Carolyn is a specialist!

The third project was a beautiful card designed by Tracy which I hope to show you soon. (But I need her permission first).

Besides Make and Takes we have lots of discussions and laughter and fun at our meetings. I always look forward to them.

Happy Stamping!

Paper Pumpkin Patience (NOT!)

I was so excited to receive My Paper Pumpkin bundle of papercrafting joy this month! It's MPP's third birthday so I couldn't wait to see it.

First thing I want to say is that I wasn't disappointed. Oh no! But the second thing I want to say is that April is actually going to be the month that celebrates the third birthday with an extra stamp set in the box! And  you know what that means... you still have time to join before April 10th to get in on the gifts!

Plus, if you purchase a three month membership before the end of March you will earn a free Sale-a-bration product. It just keeps getting better and better!

But, back to this month's box... in Bermuda Bay!

Just look at all the fun goodies!! Bermuda Bay ink spot, Bermuda Bay pearls and baker's twine, small cards and envelopes, large cards and envelopes, die cuts, stickers, everything you need to make 4 small and 4 large cards and gift card holders!

The stamp set is really versatile, with something for birthdays, gifts, graduation, and babies...

I just love this little gift card holder and gift card. It goes together so fast and easy, and there's four in the kit.

And the box is reversible! How cute is that?!

Plus there are also four regular size cards that fit into a regular size gift card envelope that is sooo unique. Here is the card, you can make them with any of the sentiments but I used the Happy Happy for a birthday card.

Then there is the envelope with a little inside pocket for the gift card - I love it!!

Just place the completed card on top of the gift card holder...

and fold up the flaps! This envelope is reversible as well. Gotta love all the options!

Remember - there's still time for you to sign up for the April extra special Paper Pumpkin kit, (sign  up for three months before March 31st and you will also receive a free Sale-a-bration item!)

Happy Stamping!
