I've been blogging about our Luv 2 Stamp Group Christmas Gift Exchange earlier this month.. and today I'm so excited to share the last segment of our evening together. You can see other posts from this event with my downline here.
This darling apron and gorgeous plates were made by Lorena, and Cindee got this lovely gift. Lorena used Mod Podge to apply Stampin' Up! Candlelight Christmas fabric (#126905, pg 4 Holiday Catalog) to the back of large clear glass plates. These are just STUNNING!!
I received this stunning bracelet made by Ellen… it is so pretty and features NEW Designer Paper coming up in the Spring catalog!!
Sharon received lovely cocktail napkins made by Carrie. Carrie is a great seamstress and used Comfort Cafe fabric for these treasures. (item #126894, pg 171 Stampin' Up! Catalog).
And lastly, (but not leastly) 🙂 Joy received this amazing set of drawers decorated by Sharon.. I just love this technique.. Sharon shared it at our October meeting and i will be blogging about this technique soon!
Last Friday night about a dozen of my Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrators got together to celebrate the holidays with dinner, a gift exchange and we made a very special project led by Cindee Wilkinson. I wanted to share the amazing hand made gifts we exchanged.
I'll share a few each day.
We bring our gifts in a brown shopping bag and set them on a table, then we go around in a circle and each person selects one bag, and opens it. (no we do not steal gifts once opened).
Gina received beautiful handmade ornaments from Carol:
and Laura loved her paper angels from Joy!
The angels are similar to THESE ANGELS that I blogged previously, but Joy put one angel on a pretty sparkly ornament and the other angel on a battery operated tea light.. so cute!
Laura's husband, Jeff, came for dinner (as did my hubby and son)… aren't they the cutest couple!?
and Carol received this amazing fabric garland made from strips of the Candlelight Christmas fabric, pg 4 in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, #126905. Cut strips approx. 1" x 6-1/2' and tie them onto a strand of lights!! This garland was about 6' long and took 2 packs of fabric and 1 pack of Early Espresso Tulle ribbon. It's on a battery operated strand of lights, but you could also use regular lights.
check back again.. i'll be sharing MORE gift projects!
(see pages 28 to 33 in the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog)
I filled a canning jar with home made trail mix, then cut two 6" squares of Orchard Harvest Fabric (page 30, item code 126915), frayed the edges and layered them over the lid. I secured them with a rubber band. I tore a 27" length of the Lucky Limeade ginham fabric from the Orchard Harvest package to use as a tie around the jar lid (and to cover the rubber band).
The Jar stamp is from the new Perfectly Preserved stamp set (#126690/126692) on pg 29 of your Holiday catalog. I stamped it in Gumball Green ink on Whisper White cardstock, and die cut it with the Cannery Framelit set (#127822) and my Big Shot. Then I die cut a 2nd jar with a Window sheet (#114323) and secured it over the stamped one. That makes it look like a glass jar. 🙂
My last set of embellishing features the super pretty leaves die cut from the new Autumn Accents Big Shot Die (#127812) found on pg 33 of the Holiday Catalog. Some were stamped with the Wonderfall set (#128084/128087) and some were just textured with the Woodgrain Embossing folder (#127821) – all on pg 33 of the Holiday catalog.
VIDEO coming soon for the leaf technique!
So anyway.. back to the fabric.. it's so pretty!!
find it on pg 30 of your Holiday catalog or order it HERE online
