I wanted to share with you some of the projects that came out of the Seashore Stampers Christmas get-together this past Saturday. The Seashore Stampers is a group of local Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. I put this group together so we could share and support one another. And, well, I simply like these ladies and enjoy their company, creativity and laughter. We meet once a month for some business chit chat, support, lunch and some crafting.
To make our potluck lunch a little more festive, we each agreed to make a little something for the table place settings. I made this cutlery holder:
|The beautiful napkin tucked inside was made by our host, Jen.
|This is how my place at the table looked like with all the hand-made table treats.
|the whole table – theme colours: red, white & gold
The cutlery holder was so much fun to make – and relatively easy and fast depending on how much embellishing you want to do. I found a video for this and will link to it here.
After lunch, we got busy with four make & take projects: a little pink pig with butterfly wings made using the Curvy Keepsake framelits, a card made using stencils, ink pads and sponges, an adorable cork reindeer made using the Cookie Cutter bundle, and a gift bow using 1/2 a sheet of designer series paper. The gift bow was my contribution.
|I demonstrated the making of this bow. So easy to make.
If you’d like to make one or two or three for your gift wrapping this year, check out this video:

It was a wonderful day and we look forward to getting together again in the New Year.
I hope you enjoyed this project share. We’re counting down the day’s now. Enjoy all your holiday preparations.
