Christmas swaps

Once a quarter, Julie Kettlewell hosts a team training day for her team - Julie's Jems.  Since joining Stampin' Up! in February I have missed a couple of these, but managed to get myself booked onto the most recent one in July.  It was really great to meet other demonstrators in the team, and to get lots of tips and ideas from Julie.  We did lots of crafting too, and there were gorgeous cupcakes which seems to have become a tradition at these events.

There was a Christmas theme at this training day, and we were asked to make some Christmas swaps using a non-Christmas stamp set!  I used  Everything Eleanor, including the little bird which I coloured as a robin, and some festive colours (Real Red and Old Olive) to create my swaps...

Products used:
Stamps: Everything Eleanor, Petite Pairs
Inks: Old Olive, Soft Suede, Real Red
Card stock: Real Red, Very Vanilla
Ribbon: Very Vanilla Satin
Punches: Large Scallop Circle

It was great to swap these for some really lovely and unique projects from the other ladies!  It certainly got us thinking about Christmas and all the exciting things that will be coming in the new Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue which will launch on 1st September!
