A Good Day of Stamping. . . Priceless!


I had a wonderful day filled laughter and crafting with some of my favorite people today!  I've held an Appreciation Open House for my Hostesses and Club Members on the first Saturday of December for the past 12 years now!  It's such a fun day to plan and prepare for and today was so fun for me!  (I think a few others had fun, too!)


Here's a quick snapshot of the day!

Open House crowd


Here are the projects we made!

Snowman Tea Light

Yes, that's a flameless tea light disguised as a snowman (magnet)!  Isn't he just stinkin' cute?  His hat is made with the XL Oval (#119859), Large Oval for the brim (#119855), and 1/2" Circle (#119869) Punches and then run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder (#119976).  Oh and his eyes and mouth are Basic Pearls (#119247) colored with a black sharpee marker (while still attached to sheet)!



Red Ornament

This glass ornament is filled with curled 1/2" strips of Season of Style Designer Series Paper (#132340) and Silver Glimmer Paper (#124005).  I used a Bone Folder to curl the paper.  What a fun way to use up scraps!

HINT:  It's easier to curl the Glimmer Paper once the backing is removed.  After pulling between your finger and the bone folder a couple of times, the backing comes off easily!


Pool Party Ornament

Here's the same idea using Winterfrost Specialty Paper (#132341)!


I'll share the last project we made on another day. . . I want to post the winners of the prize drawing for the Open House!  Congratulations everyone and thanks for making my day a great one!  (My downline was here in the afternoon and I had Penny draw the winning tickets while I recorded all the winners!)
