Christmas Light Bulb Card + Cozy Craft Retreat Tutorial!

Here’s a card from the Cozy Craft Retreat – I LOVE light Christmas bulb anything! I have decor, jewelry, cookie cutters, you name it, I have it for Christmas bulbs!

Seems I can’t go a holiday without creating something light bulb related! LOL Here’s this year’s version!

This card is 1 of 22 projects in the Cozy Craft Retreat-in-a-Box! The retreat-in-a-box already took place, but you can still purchase the tutorial! To see all the projects included in the tutorial, please click below. You can also decide if you want to purchase it on that page, as well.

“Santa-Tizer” and Liquid Glue Holder Gifts from Cozy Craft Retreat-in-a-Box

Here are two “pillow gifts” that were included in the Cozy Craft Retreat-in-a-Box. I have a free tutorial for you so you can make these treats, as well! Please see the video link below for instructions on both.

If you’re wondering why these gifts are called “pillow gifts”, that wording is used in the Stampin’ Up world! On the incentive trip, Stampin’ Up places a “pillow gift” on or pillow each night at the end of the day in our rooms. It’s always so much fun to see what is there each night! It’s fun to incorporate things like this into my events to make it special!

This is a “Santa-Tizer” which holds a Bath and Body Works hand sanitizer inside. We made our own labels so they would go with the theme of our event. Directions in video below.

This is a Multipurpose Glue holder and Glue, which received! I purchased the glue holders on Etsy HERE.

Here is the video so you can create these projects!

Free PDF for you, too!

Birthday Boy! Plus Christmas Books

So this happened yesterday! Our son, Braden, turned 16! His UBER creative sister, Brittany, made him this pizza cash gift, which he LOVED! She even used the box from the pizza place he works at. We had such a great time – can’t believe how fast these years go!

Here’s a little Christmas project I made – I just stamped the ends of books! Saw the idea on Pinterest, of course! I also made the wood Santa around 25 years ago when we lived in Minnesota!

weSTAMP Christmas Party

We had our team party this week – this is always a highlight for me each year!

We had a shoebox swap, and then a “my favorite things” gift exchange. We all brought a gift that was something that was our “favorite”, and wrap it creatively. Here is my gift, and if you know me, you know I like to decorate each season with legs sticking out of things. LOL

Here is the team photo of those who were able to attend, I LOVE these gals so much!

Rose Hanford won the swap, look at her cute Valentine’s Day card. There is a real feather in the lure.

Lots of STEALING of gifts happened this evening!

Gina Shappa made this adorable red pick up truck out of card stock, and the box in the back had a Starbucks gift card! SO FUN!!!!!

November Team Projects – Christmas Tags!

I love our team get togethers, because we make fun projects like this! Last month we made Christmas tags at our get together. Even those who can’t attend in person can get a kit of the projects we make!

The last photo is a plastic stamp case that we decorated to put all our tags in.

Elfie Tutorial!

You are going to fall in love with the Elfie stamp set! Here are some fun Christmas projects for you to enjoy! This PDF includes all 3 projects, patterns to create them, many photos, and clear instructions on how to create them!

I love the box I designed for this card!  You can reuse this box pattern for MANY other cards ideas! The box is 3-D because it is popped up with Dimensionals. The possibilities are endless!

This card has elves everywhere! There is a surprise inside when you open the card, you will see a 3-D gift box pop up!

The last project is a fun design. When you open the box by pulling on the tab on the front,  the elf pops up out of the box! You can put a small gift inside, or a Christmas treat!

This PDF is FREE with an order over $35 from my website HERE.

Christmas Lantern From Cozy Craft Retreat

Here is a darling lantern that was one of our table gifts at the Cozy Craft Retreat. My UBER creative downline, Susanna Cunningham, made all of these for the gals! She did a great job on these! Susanna purchased a tutorial from Allison Okamitsu, but tweaked the pattern to make it easier to mass product. This lantern is about 5 1/2″ tall.

We gave this table gift Saturday morning at the retreat. We turned all the lights off, so when the gals came in the room in the morning, the lanterns were all glowing. It was so pretty!

Thanks for visiting my blog today!
