My Christmas Gift to My Team 2016

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

It’s almost Christmas Eve!   Every year I like to give my team a little gift to show appreciation to them for choosing me as their team leader.   Plus, they are all women who are willing to share, help, give, care, and love and they deserve a little spoiling!!  We as adult women don’t get it enough!

stampin-up-team-christmas-gifts-2016-new-zealand-creative-inkers

 

Basically I made each of them a pack containing a two hour class. It included a stamp set, two project samples, and 16 kits plus a bit of product.  Those who teach classes will appreciate the prep work being done and those who don’t will either enjoy the projects themselves or choose to share the experience with a friend or two.  I’m confident whatever type of demonstrator they are, they all love to craft and will find enjoyment out of the gift.

I’ll be sharing the more specific contents over the next week or so; I wanted to give everyone a chance to open and enjoy the surprise first.

To be honest, I had a lot of fun preparing these.  I’ve said it before, but I’ll remind myself again: it’s so fulfilling to craft for the sheer pleasure of giving someone a gift.

I enjoyed it so much that it’s got the wheels turning, and I think I will offer from time to time kit packs for purchase next year.   I’ve had many requests to provide scrapbooking page kits, so that will be on the menu as well.

Reindeer Noses – A Cute Christmas Gift or Christmas Table Decor

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

It’s the season for little gifts for all those whom we love, work with, and enjoy!  This Christmas will be a quiet one for us as all of my children will be visiting relatives in the USA.  So I made up these Tiny Treat Boxes to share with friends instead:

stampin-up-labeler-alphabet-christmas-table-easy-gift

The little tags are made with the Decorative Label Punch and the Labeler Alphabet.  So fun!

Each box has a small strip of printed paper (here the Designer Series Paper Stack) on two sides and the bottom.

Grab yourself some jaffas and a pack of the Tiny Treat Boxes for a sweet gift or something fun for your Christmas table!

It Wasn’t You – Double Page Scrapbooking Layout with Dragonfly Dreams

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

I’ve been trying my hand a double layouts recently, and I do like how many photos can fit across a spread!  When I was designing my share today, I had the new Dragonfly Dreams on my table and just had to use it!  (This stamp set available to order 3 January!)

The story behind these funny pictures is Sofie vehemently denying she had taken a drink from my smoothie.  So the above words from Dragonfly Dreams were perfect.

stampin-up-it-wasnt-you-stitched-framelits-double-layout-scrapbooking

 

I’ve also used the Ghoulish Grunge stamp set here for the brick accent and the Pretty Pines Thinlit Dies for accents.

stampin-up-it-wasnt-you-double-page-scrapbooking-layout

 

I chose something of an unusual colour combination to coordinate with the purple smile; most of the students in my scrapbooking class last month used Night of Navy to accent rather than the Elegant Eggplant.  Either looks great – it’s all about bringing out the photos and the story.

stampin-up-it-wasnt-you-cable-emboss-pretty-pines-labeler-layout

The Labeler Alphabet is a goodie for any project – particularly for scrapping.   And it’s a great price!

It’s always good design practice to carry the accents and/or colours through the project, so on the second page is a “mini version” of the larger embellishment on the first page.
