Fran and Joyce

I have more cookie swaps to share from our demonstrator meeting.  Getting together with a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators is always fun.  We all get to share our ideas and creativity with one another.

These two ideas are from Fran – she came the furthest to attend the meeting and we were so glad for her to join us – and also from Joyce – she is one of the demonstrators that comes with me to the Ronald McDonald House each month.

Fran made these cute little fall themed boxes for her cookie swap.  She used the Autumn Spice Specialty Designer Series Paper and the matching Day of Gratitude stamp set to decorate the front of the boxes.  Both of these are in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday mini catalog.   Some punches and a variety of ribbon finished off these cute boxes.

Here is a picture of the whole group of them. The colors that she used are Cajun Craze, Old Olive, More Mustard and Early Espresso.

The boxes had different colors and types of ribbon tied to the top.

Joyce decorated some plain white paper bags for her cookie swap.

Can you guess what she used to made this fun tree?  The designer paper is the Holly Jolly paper from the big catalog and she punched out different pieces using the Photo Corners Extra-Large punch.  Very creative!

The greeting is from Many Merry Messages.  Any guesses on what stamp set that tree stand is from?  It is the Aviary set – don’t you love using a set designed for something else in a new way.   To top the tree use a tiny little star.  Stampin’ Up! has several sets with tiny stars to choose from.

Joyce mixed up the different patterns of papers on each of the trees so every bag is a little bit different.

I hope you are enjoying all the ideas.  I still have lots more to share so check making in the coming days …..
