Well, it’s officially an infirmary here in the Gonzales house… thankfully I have avoided it so far BUT both my kids have the flu and my husband seems to think that he has symptoms- at least that’s what he told me his reasons for taking a “vacation” from working out until the new year is.  So I am hiding away in my stamp studio, to be sure that I stay germ free.  I have also quarantined the sick ones to upstairs, and the house smells of a lovely hint of Lysol…Ahhhh, the Holidays.

On to happier things, today I am sharing the project that we made at mt Annual Christmas Party this last weekend.  Those that came got to create this adorable gift box, and there was an added “treat” as well…

If you remember several days ago I revealed this little sneak peek about the project…we decorated the little treat containers to embellish the gift box as well- so cute!

These are the treats that we put inside the boxes.  It’s called Peppermint Puppy chow (find it HERE) and can I just tell you it’s SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO yummy, in fact I made a HUGE bowl for us just to snack on throughout the evening-

nom-nom-nom-nom!

Peppermint Puppy Chow

Then of course there were the adorable tags- these were so simple and easy to recreate I just love the punch board!  The best part for me is being able to give and host events like this for my stampers.  I appreciate them SOOOO much!

I gave this as a Christmas Gift to ALL my HOSTESS CLUB MEMBERS who couldn’t make it to the party.  They each received a little project kit in the mail and now they can make it at home, but they will have to create their own Peppermint Puppy Chow… I love doing FUN things like this for my CLUB MEMBERS and I have some FAB changes coming soon to my HOSTESS CLUB PROGRAM- more to come next week!!

I also gave my fantastic HSS TEAM MEMBERS this great project tutorial as my gift of Thanks for selecting me as their Support Demonstrator, nothing makes me happier.  I have a wonderful group of ladies on my Team and I am always thrilled when I get to welcome a new one into the fold.  If you have ever thought of joining Stampin’ Up! and wondered which Demonstrator would be a good fit, lets chat.  I can’t tell you how important it is to talk with a few Support Demos before selecting one.  I am always willing to answer questions and give assistance where needed.  I have many tools set up for my Team to help them succeed as well, I love building up fellow demonstrators and other women!  EMAIL ME or give me a CALL 210-376-7639 anytime.

Gifts For Hostess Club and HSS Team Members

I have been dying to share the Christmas Gifts I made for my local HOSTESS CLUB & HSS TEAM MEMBERS that were able to attend the Annual Holiday Party this year.  I made these mugs almost 2 months ago, and I can’t tell you how HARD it has been for me not to share sneak peeks or totally spill the beans… SUPER HARD!!

creating cute holiday gifts is a snap with Pinterest and http://www.handstampedstyle.com

I made sweet little bows to finish off each mug, and these babies are LARGE… they are like Starbucks grande!  The ribbon is of course from Stampin’ Up! and I just have to say that I LOVE the wide stuff… the wider, the better!

creating cute holiday gifts is a snap with Pinterest and http://www.handstampedstyle.comCreating these mugs is actually super simple… I used contact paper with my TYPESET ALPHABET DIE, which is on clearance right now, and cut out a few letters.  I stuck them to the fronts of the mug and then I used these awesome SHARPIE MARKERS I found on Amazon made just for this!  This fun mug is for one of my TEAM MEMBERS, Genny Valdez.creating cute holiday gifts is a snap with Pinterest and http://www.handstampedstyle.com

I used the tip of the marker to dab little dots all around the letter sticker, I placed them super close together up against the letter and spread them out as I moved further away from the letter.  When I was done, I peeled the letter off the mug and I was left with this…

creating cute holiday gifts is a snap with Pinterest and http://www.handstampedstyle.com

Once I completed the mug, I let it stand and dry for 24 hours.  Then I baked them in the oven for the designated time and temp and just to be safe, I ran them through the dishwasher once complete just to be sure that all my hard work wasn’t going to be washed away, LOL!!  I did find out that the vivid original colors that the markers produce do change once the mugs are baked.  So the Red looked more pink, and the pink went from a melon color to pastel and the deep blue went to more of a teal and so on… but they were still super adorbs!

Now, I bet you are wondering what I did for my long distance HOSTESS CLUB & HSS TEAM MEMBERS… well you will have to check in tomorrow to see!!  I am super excited to share that with you too!!  I will give you a little teaser about my HOSTESS CLUBS… there are some changes getting ready to happen, and they are AWESOME!!!  I am getting all the details and specifics organized and ready to reveal… so be ready for an awesome announcement coming next week!  If you

Banner Blessings Out Of The Box Christmas Card

YEAR END CLOSEOUT SALE GOING ON NOW- CLICK HERE FOR FAB STEALS!!

CHECK OUT THE NEWEST WEEKLY DEALS FROM STAMPIN’ UP!- CLICK HERE

I am SOOOOOO ready to move on from my Christmas creations and crafts, even though I STILL haven’t sent out my holiday cards yet.  I will be honest, I may not get them out.  I know that’s almost blasphemous… the card lady not getting out cards.  I have been so busy with prepping for events and classes that I haven’t had the time to devote to actually designing and putting them together.

But even though I haven’t actually created a gazillion Christmas cards I am pretty much over the Christmas creating and the jewel toned colors… I am really in LOVE with bright cheery colors and I honestly can only take a few weeks of the fall seasonal colors, so I went with brighter colors for this weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.

create out the box Christmas Cards with alternative colros and sentiments using Banner Blessings works great from http://www.handstampedstyle.com

I decided to play with some of my new sets that I got the other day, and I am creating an OUT-THE-BOX Christmas card with it too.  I needed to use some unconventional colors too and honestly this card could be used for SO many different reasons, but it sort of works for Christmas too… sort of :-)

Here is the sketch that we had to work with this week.

http://www.handstampedstyle.com

I absolutely LOVE the FUN silver polka-dot vellum paper that I used on the background… that stuff is just plain AWESOME!!  I admit that I am a little obsessed with this new BANNER BLESSINGS set too, it’s oozing in AWESOME-SAUCE too.  I took a few stars that I cut from the Star framelits and covered the largest one with Dazzling Details- SAAAA-WEEEEET!!!

create out the box Christmas Cards with alternative colros and sentiments using Banner Blessings works great from http://www.handstampedstyle.com

I stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink onto Pool Party card stock, punched out of course with my trusty 2-1/2″ circle punch.  Then I re-stamped the sentiment onto Blackberry Bliss card stock using Whisper White craft ink, and I hand cut out the banner piece and layered it over top the Bermuda punched one… seriously COOL, right?  I am really pleased how this card came out.  I used a fun color pallet that I have on my PINTEREST INSPIRATION PAGE-

color inspiration

I really liked these but I narrowed it down to just the last 3 colors- LOVE!

I can’t wait to share the fun things I have planned for tomorrow, you will absolutely want to check back for that.  Take a moment this week and create a fun card, or any type of project using the sketch from above and play along with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  It’s a LOT of fun!!  And before you head off today be sure you take a moment to register for the creative classes I have the rest of this month- they are cute!

Christmas Party Goes Off Without A Hitch… Or Does It?

YEAR END CLOSEOUT SALE GOING ON NOW- CLICK HERE FOR FAB STEALS!!

CHECK OUT THE NEWEST WEEKLY DEALS FROM STAMPIN’ UP!- CLICK HERE

I had such a GREAT time with my stamping friends at my Annual Christmas Party this last weekend, I had to take Sunday to rest… and clean, LOL!!  No fantastic party or event goes off without a single snafu and my events are no different, but they are still FAB all the same.  I have to admit that the Christmas Party started off on shaky ground… more on that in a moment.  I had lots of fun things for my attendees this year, and since I was a one woman host I didn’t take as many pics as I had hoped.  I had asked my daughter to be my photog and at the last min she ditched me for a Birthday party… Santa will remember that.

Let me share with you some pics of the setup before the guests began to arrive… I always have upcoming class samples out to view so guests can see whats coming up on my creative class calendar.

HSS always has future class samples displayed for attendees to view.

But I had a special surprise to announce-

HSS always has future class samples displayed for attendees to view.

I had a swap section for those that were participating in the card swap, this was awesome… I will be sharing those later this week. They were awesome. This is the before pic…

Card swap station for guests http://www.handstampedstyle.com

The station once guests began to arrive… SO creative!

Card swap station for guests http://www.handstampedstyle.com

I also set up a station for each attendee to bring a handmade card to send to ADDIE for Christmas, if you didn’t read her story you can see it on my Facebook page.  I also had a FUN BINGO game ready for guests… there were lots of winners.

Handmade cards for Christmas for Addie http://www.handstampedstyle.com

They got to select something from under the tree (there were NO losers, LOL!)

Christmas party gifts for attendees http://www.handstampedstyle.com

Guests could also take part in a COOKIE SWAP… this was awesome!  There were SO many yummy & festive cookies and everyone went home with LOTS of sugar, LOL! (I remember there being more than this, I think I took this pic before everyone had arrived??)

swapping cookies at Christmas Party 2014 http://www.handstampedstyle.com

Then there was a little hiccup… everything up to this point had gone off without a hitch… let me start by saying I had planned to serve Lasagne, a yummy Kale salad, and festive bevies… however about an hour prior to my party I was getting ready to put the Lasagne in the over to bake and realized that I read the instructions wrong… it takes almost 2 HOURS to cook it, NOT 45 min… UGH!

FREAK OUT MODE!!

So it was HUBS to the rescue.  He quickly went to our local BBQ place and we ended up having a very traditional TX Holiday Party… Fried Chicken, BBQ Turkey, Potato Salad, Baked Beans, White Bread and yummy Kale Salad… ;-)

Holiday eats pair well with holiday treats http://www.handstampedstyle.com

We started out digging into the yummy eats, it was din-din time and we all were starving so the first to arrive were the first to dig in!  This was tasty too, plus eating in waves made finding a seat easier.

Enjoying tasty dinner with fellow stampers at Christmas Party 2014 http://www.handstampedstyle.com

Then it was time to play a little BINGO, of which I got NO pics of… :-(  But it was FUN and we had 4 winners, I think… there might have been a few more. I can’t recall. LOL!!  Once we finished prizes and games we headed into get crafty, cause what’s a stamping party without a little stamping??  A suck-y one, bwahahahaha!!

Holiday creativity is abound at http://www.handstampedstyle.com Christmas Party 2014.

We made an adorable project, which I will share a little later this week.  I didn’t think to take a pic of them that night :-|  Working solo at this event was a little overwhelming :-)  The one part that I haven’t share with you yet are the Christmas Gifts that each HOSTESS CLUB and HSS TEAM MEMBER received from me.  I will share those later this week as well.  They were super adorable and the ladies LOVED them, plus I had a blast creating them for each of these amazing ladies.  I couldn’t send these gifts to my long distance HOSTESS CLUB or HSS TEAM MEMBERS but I have sent them each a special kit to create which includes a tutorial and supplies.  SO FUN!!

If you want to take advantage of all the perks and benefits of being a HOSTESS CLUB or TEAM MEMBER joining is easy and the perks are more than worth all the benefits of joining.  Have questions about my HOSTESS CLUBS or becoming a Demonstrator and JOINING MY TEAM? No problem, EMAIL ME and let’s chat.  I am more than happy to answer any questions and help you out in any way that I can.

I have so much fun planning and preparing for events like this and I am off to prep for the next one coming up Jan. 3rd, just in time to kickoff the upcoming SALE-A-BRATION promotion.  More details on that to come real soon!!  There are still plenty of FUN creative classes to take advantage of this month as well, hurry and register before the limited spaces are all taken.

Something Beautiful To Welcome You…

YEAR END CLOSEOUT DEALS – GET THEM TODAY BEFORE THEY’RE GONE!!

Today I have a sweet card to share, inspired by the sketch provided by Stampin’ Celebration.  I have some fun things I am sending to my newest TEAM MEMBERS this month and I needed the perfect card to accompany it, and I think I made one.

A warm welcome to my Team Members to let them know they are loved by http://www.handstampedstyle.com

I am so excited to welcome several new Team Members in the last few weeks and I send each one a “Welcome Kit” of sorts.  It includes some helpful training items along with links to the different team sites and various supports that I have in place for them.  I also throw in a few fun creative things to round out the package.  I just love this specialty set we got at Leadership last year, it’s perfect for cards like this.

Here is the sketch that we are working with this week, it’s a perfect layout for MANY different themes…

SCIC93

Just think if you put a little cupcake or gift image on each of the strips?? So many possibilities!  I paired a darker ink with the lighter version of the color, for instance I used Blushing Bride card stock and Calypso Coral ink, Whisper White ink on Island Indigo card stock and lastly Old Olive ink on Pistachio Pudding card stock.

A warm welcome to my Team Members to let them know they are loved by http://www.handstampedstyle.com

The thing I like the most about this set is the specific sentiments, they are perfect for fellow Demonstrators!!

A warm welcome to my Team Members to let them know they are loved by http://www.handstampedstyle.com

I love the font and the sentiment, it’s all just awesome!  I can’t wait until my new Team Members open this package!  I am off to make several more and get these out, but you should stop by and play along with the challenge this week- it really is FUN!!  When you are done playing be sure to take a moment to register for an upcoming creative class for December!!

I was reading up on some details with Stampin’ Up! yesterday and came across this story

6-year-old girl asks for holiday cards for her last ChristmasThis is Addie, and she is asking for beautiful, handmade cards for this Christmas… she is a very sick little thing and I urge you to read her story and get involved- when I read this I knew that my stamping friends could give Addie what she’s asking for.  So I am asking that everyone that is coming to my Christmas Party to bring a handmade Christmas (or any other occasion) card for Addie.  If you are taking part in the card swap, please bring +1 of the total that will be emailed to you.

If you are not swapping or not able to attend then please take the time to send her a sweet card, she deserves a little happiness.
