I told you I would have lots of these Cookie Swaps to share with you – they were all such great ideas.  I’m trying to make sure I don’t miss anyone so I’m sharing based upon my pictures that I took of everyone.

Susie and Lisa S.

I got a picture of Susie and Lisa working with the Letterpress Plates and the Big Shot.  Susie is my newest demonstrator on my PAWS team and I was very excited to have her join.  Susie signed up with the Digital+ Starter kit and you can too – if you do it before Nov. 30th you can join Stampin’ Up! for half price – $87.50 – what a deal!  If I wasn’t already a demo I would not even hesitate to think about this one.

With Suzie being so new she didn’t have any Stampin’ Up! designer paper so she did use some of her stash of non-su paper and ribbon for her swap.  But she pulled out the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake punch to finish off the front of these cute bags.  Inside she had snowflake candies – made with white chocolate and the back was tinted blue.  I do confess that I took this little bag apart because I wanted to trace the pattern and see how she made it – I still need to get out the ruler and measure it.

Lisa S. used a Cello Bag for her cookies – thumbprint cookies and then made a topper.  The topper looks to be the size of a card – 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 – but I didn’t actually get out the ruler to measure it.

She used the Top Note die cut from Very Vanilla card stock to decorate the front.  The stamp set is Snow Swirled.  The colors are Old Olive, Real Red and Very Vanilla.  A little bit of ribbon adds a perfect touch.

The center strips are also cut with the top note die but they are just a strip from the center layered on top of the full cut piece – one is Old Olive and the other has the greeting on it.

I brought all the swaps and cookies with me for Thanksgiving and a couple of days ago I emptied them all out into a container – the kids and all the family have been sampling these awesome cookie creations every day!

Have a great Thanksgiving with your family!  I have decided not to put up a new post on Thursday – Thanksgiving day – I’ll catch back up with you on Friday.  I’m still waiting on someone to claim Bingo….until then we will keep going with the game that never ends – who will it be? Are you checking your card carefully?  Everybody here keeps asking me if I have a winner yet.
