Look What we Made for Team Christmas Gifts 2013!

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

This year’s Team Christmas Gift for my Stampin’ Up! Team was fun to do!  It was a compilation of ideas from about six or seven different sources . .  .including DIY card kits that are mostly finished, some personal pampering, the chance to do good things for others, personal challenges, and with some chocolate on top!

Let’s go into detail starting with the packaging:

Each box was made by cutting our Extra Large gift boxes in half and then a simple acetate lid washi-taped on (if that is a verb).

The lids were stamped with the with the White Staz-on, which was the perfect finishing touch for a clean, bright package.

Each kit contained:

9 stamped cards with stamped envelopes

3 meters of ribbon


bath salts

Goal-writing journal

matching pen or pencil

20 label punches


Instructions of what do to with each item and when . . .

The kits were made up in six different colour combinations, so each demonstrator could choose what appealed to them the most.

My eldest daughter, Madeleine, was hugely helpful in getting all of these finished up in plenty of time.   She was quite happy to stamp up the card kits in little sets of ten at a time over the last few months, so it really didn’t seem like a huge job. (the notecards and envelopes sets of 20 for $11.95 were the key to making this manageable!!)

Plus it earned her some Christmas money.   (if only kids were so willing to be helpful year-round . . .)

It was fun choosing out the different colours for these.  I didn’t allow myself to use Cherry Cobbler or Early Espresso.  It’s so good to challenge oneself to use colours that don’t often get used.

It was so heartwarming to feel the appreciation and the excitment.  Rob and I stood back and watched them debate and decide and admire .  . . .

I have had such pleasure making these with Madeleine for the team.  It reminds me again of why we love crafting and creating – it’s the joy of giving something of ourselves to those we appreciate and care about.  To making the world that smidge more beautiful.

Merry Christmas!
