I apologize for the disappearing act. It was completely unintentional. Life just got out of control and there just wasn't enough hours in a day! There still isn't, but it's starting to let up a bit.
Sunday night we had our team party. Only about half of the team could make it (some people live several hours away!), but we had a great time crafting together! The other leaders in my team gave me a hand, and we made these tags together (each leader provided a sample & kit). They turned out great! Starting from the top, the Good Tiding Card came from Louise Reynen, the reindeer from Amy Grendel, the stocking came from a Paper Pumpkin kit I supplied, No Peeking came from Amanda Farlinger, and the Merriest Christmas Wishes came from me. I really appreciate all the help these ladies gave me! It meant that we got to do a lot more projects!
We were also hosted at Amy's house, which was a much appreciated change! It also was in town which made it easier from some people to make it.
In addition to crafting together, we also swapped (traded for ideas), cards with each other. This one was from Amanda Farlinger, and as she was the only one that was able to go to OnStage in Salt Lake City this year, she made hers with brand new product from the Occasions Catalog! And it is beautiful!
This card was from Michelle Stenson. Michelle has a very vintage style, and this suits her to perfection! I love this lady from the Christmas in the Making stampset. In fact, I ended up liking it so much, I used this stampset in the December blends club kit!
This card is from April Schroeder. I love this fancy fold! It's absolutely stunning, and I need to remember to use it on a card soon!
This card is from Chris Schroeder. I am really wishing I'd bought that elf. Isn't he cute? And that background paper--gorgeous in person!
This was my swap card. A little watercolour over an embossed image. Simple and easy.
This card was from Danielle McIntosh. I love how the sentiment stands out!
This one was from our host, Amy Grendel. I love how simple yet impactful this one is! And it uses my favourite designer series paper!
And lastly, this one is from Louise Reynen. I love it! It's absolutely gorgeous in person. There are so many uses for those snow swirls from the Star of Wonder stampset!
