Hi Friends! How are you? I have missed you!
I have quite a few things to share with you today!
The other night Stampin’ Up! sponsored a new Occasions Catalog (and Sale-a-bration) Catalog Kick off Party again! Many of my team members and I went to Crossgates mall for the viewing. A bunch of us met for dinner first at The Standard, a yummy Italian restaurant (very Frank Sinatra-ish interior):
While I wish every single one of my Lynnzcrafters team could have attended too, it is such a busy time of year. Glad that Tiffany, Amye, Jamie, Tina and Molly were able to attend.
We had two demos join us as their uplines were not there, we had fun with Anne and Audrey!
Interestingly, Jamie won prize patrol (again!) so happy for her, and it is such a beautiful new stamp set!!
And here are the two new catalogs that will launch on January 6th, 2015… and this is an awesome new stamp set that we all went home with too!
Last night was our annual Christmas Party at my upline Dania’s house, look at this yummy Cranberry cocktail she made for us… it was delicious!
Dania had this amazing project for our Make-and-Take! She ordered some galvanized metal flashing so we turned these frames into magnetic boards. How cute??
Here’s Sheila, Tiffany and Judy with their boards.
Not sure why Dania is hiding, but here she is with Anne, Karyn and Amye making their memo boards. So fun!
A highlight of the party is our annual Christmas Grab Bag… there are a few rules: wrap a handmade gift valued around $10 in a plain brown bag. We draw numbers, and the person who has #1 opens the first gift, then person who has #2 can either steal the first gift, or open a new one. We have a “three steals and it is frozen” rule. Also “you can’t go home with your own gift rule”. This was an amazing year of awesome one-of-a-kind and spectacular gifts! They were all Steal-worthy!!
Here is the gift that I made:
It is a Project Life album, in the now sold-out Cherry Cobbler color. I heat embossed the snowflakes on the cover using whisper white embossing powder. I had an extra snowflake embellishment from my Many Merry Stars Kit, and I applied metallic silver ink to turn it silver. I used some other products to jazz it up, what do you think??
I also made a few inserts for one of the pages, just some quick and simple stamping on some 3″ x 4″ whisper white rectangles.
Be sure to come back and visit me tomorrow, to see the gift I came home with- it’s much more than one gift- it’s going to take about 20 photos to show you my gift, can’t wait to show you!
