Swapping with Friends – Christmas Gift Edition

I mentioned that Saturday was our annual Oklahoma Stampin’ Up Demonstrators Christmas Gathering.  One of the things we always do is bring a wrapped handmade Stampin’ Up gift and we play Dirty Santa (if you’re not familiar with Dirty Santa, google it. It’s a blast!)

I thought you all might like to see some of the great gifts that my demonstrator friends created.  I don’t have the space to show them all but here are some of my personal favorites.

First let me start with some gorgeous framed artwork!

What a great way to use the November Paper Pumpkin kit!  It’s stunning!

Love the layers on this piece of art and the gold on the sleigh!

Wowza!  This sampler just blew me away.  The gold window sheets made this just shine!

Here’s another framed shadow box using the Santa’s Sleigh framelits but she also used Christmas Magic set as well.  It reminds me of “Polar Express”.

Sorry for the glare from the camera but isn’t this just beautiful!  Embellished Ornaments layers on Gold Glimmer paper.  LOVE!

Check out these amazing ornaments!  So cool!  They were huge too.  Absolutely gorgeous!

When I play Dirty Santa, I play dirty (bwahahaha).  I see a gift and I snag it when I can.  I saw this beautiful swag and claimed it as MINE.  The first photo looks washed out for some reason but next two show its real beauty.  

The Home Sweet Home bundle is just amazing, isn’t it?  Who knew you could create something so adorable with those little houses.

And a few of those Cookie Cutter Christmas Gingerbread people just added to the whimsy!

This was another favorite.  Love this wreath made with the Candy Cane Lane Designer Paper.  There is that Cookie Cutter punch again and what a clever idea to make them look like paper dolls!

BorderI hope you enjoyed these great works of art created by my friends!  It was such a fun get-together and we had a wonderful time sharing what we love most – stamping.

The high school called me yesterday letting me know I needed to pick up Ginny immediately.  She caught the dreaded stomach bug that is going around.  Bless her heart, I hate it when my kids are sick, but when they have a stomach virus, it’s even more heartbreaking.  And when I say she “caught” the bug, I mean she truly embraced it.  Yuck.  So car shopping came to a stop for the night.  

I have a new Now or WOW Christmas card that I think you’re going to love.  If things go well with Ginny today and we don’t have to head to the doctor, I hope to have the video for you tomorrow.  šŸ™‚

(Oh, I pray that I stay well. I am NOT a good patient when I have a stomach bug.)

Well…. the time has come.  My youngest daughter, Ginny, is just a few weeks away from getting her driver’s permit.  How did this happen?  WHEN did this happen?  

Last night we took her “car shopping”.  Mr. Awesome found a really sweet little 2007 VW Bug that we test drove.  She was SO cute.  Her eyes just LIT UP at the idea of owning her own car.  Not sure if we will be buying this one or not but the fun of shopping for an inexpensive car has begun.  

Let me just say right here and now…. I….Loath….Car shopping!  It’s just not fun at all.  I have never found a car salesman I liked or felt comfortable with.  Here in Oklahoma City the car salesmen don’t listen to the customer and they will hound you by phone/email until you’re at the point that you wouldn’t buy a car from them even IF they have the car you want.  Mr. Awesome actually had a salesman recently tell him how “stupid” he was for not buying a certain car from him, what a “stupid move” that was on his part “.  Not just once but SEVERAL times he called him stupid.  Are you serious????  Do you REALLY think calling my husband STUPID is going to sell a car?  Nope!

But I digress…..all I was trying to say was that we need to have a car for Ginny by Christmas so let the games begin.

Have a great Tuesday my sweet stampin’ peeps!  See ya tomorrow!  I have some fun gift ideas to share with you!

I have a very exciting weekend planned.  Tonight, the family will go see “Shrek the Musical”.  I love this musical but I have never seen it live.  It’s on Netflix (look for Shrek the Musical) if you want to see it.  It’s such a fun and funny show.  

Then tomorrow I am so excited for the Stampin’ Up Demonstrator Homemade Holiday Party!  This is an annual tradition for the demonstrators here in central Oklahoma and it is super fun.  We all create a handmade gift using Stampin’ Up products and play Dirty Santa. I will share my gift with you next week (can’t reveal it just yet).  In fact, I will share some of the other gifts as well.  It’s always a highlight to see what demonstrators create.

I am one of the coordinators for the party so my day is jammed packed getting ready.  Prizes to wrap, displays to create, etc.  I love sharing what I love with my sister demonstrators though.

That’s it for me this week.  I will see you on Monday for a Monday Make-It project!

Can’t believe today is the last day of November.  What happened to the month???  The holiday season is always a hectic one, especially for crafters.  We have lots of project we want to get done, handmade gifts we want to complete.  That’s my life right now!  So many fun things waiting for me to make.  I am one of those people who is easily distracted and I stop one project when I get an idea for another.  My stamp room is an absolute disaster right now…piles of paper, stamp sets, and ink pads everywhere.  So, I think I had better do some cleaning today so I can get back to the fun part….creativity!

Have a fabulous Wednesday everyone!  See ya right back here tomorrow!  Well, unless I get buried under the mess in my stamp room.  It might be awhile before Mr. Awesome finds me.

2-Minute Tuesday Tip – 4 Ways to Distress Cardstock

2-Minute Tuesday Tips by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

I was pondering what tip to share with you today while I was working on some projects using the new stamps from the upcoming Occasions catalog (jealous?!  lol).  Then it dawned on me that I have not shared with you my quick and easy ways to distress cardstock.

Let me share today’s simple tip on 4 different ways to distress cardstock….

 

It really is awesome to have different styles of distressed cardstock because every card is different and you want options of “how” distressed you want the card to be. 

I hope that these simple techniques come in handy in your upcoming stamping projects!

To all my USA friends, I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!  We had an absolutely fabulous time at the cabin.  We binge-watched “Gilmore Girls” and “Stranger Things”, something I would never do at home but with no distractions, it was awesome!

The Stewart family LOVES to play games, especially cards.  We challenged each other to a massive game of SPEED.  Ginny was the big winner overall, but it wasn’t a fair game.  We were all laughing so hard that we had tears in our eyes and couldn’t see the cards.  And just for the record, Christina cheats.  Just sayin’.

This cabin had a “hot tub room” that was glorious!!!  I love relaxing in a hot tub but it was a bit chilly in the evenings so I was thrilled with an actual ROOM for the hot tub.

We took some afternoon walks in the woods and it was just beautiful…. lots of trees, deer, and the weather was jacket-perfect!  We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect Thanksgiving week.  This is the second time we booked a cabin for Thanksgiving and yup, we already booked it again for next year.  It’s the perfect way to spend the holiday.

After being gone for 5 days, I have LOTS to catch up on here but I will be back tomorrow with a 2-Minute Tuesday Tip video!  See ya then!

Let me share a couple of fun ideas with you using the sketch for this weekendā€¦.

Layering the snowflakes on circle framelits really make them pop.  Such a stunning card!

How about another quick and easy card…. The Pop of Pink Designer Paper adds a great layer to this card.  I am obsessed with this paper!
