Yesterday, we had our monthly Team gathering.  Barbara Levitz opened her home to us. We were all excited to see each other again and “Stamp With Barbara”!  We each shared our projects, ate pizza, talked about the new catalog and shared lots of ideas. Lots of laughing, too!

As always, I want to share our projects with you.  There are never any restrictions with our group and never any mistakes  … the only limitation is your imagination and only good saves!!  So, no more talking, enjoy the rest of the post.

I wasn’t surprised to see Barbara’s project having something to do with the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper.  She’s loved that paper since last year.  Take a look at her simple and stunning wine bottle tag.  Thank you again, Barbara for hosting us.

Barbara also had a gift for all of us.  She gave us personalized bone folders and designed a beautiful holiday package for them.  The Warm Hugs Designer Series Paper has patterns that coordinate so well.  A little Real Red Braided Linen Trim, a star and a few Mossy Meadow cropped sprigs decorated her gift perfectly. Oh, I don’t want to forget that she added a Real Red Rhinestone!  How cute is this?

Monica shared a pretty plaid holiday card.  The Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper is a real favorite of mine and I love the tree punch.  This card is so quick and easy to put together.  Monica prepared the kits for each of us, but we were able to place our trees and twine anyway we wanted.  There were some who wrapped the twine around the tree layer and that was adorable.  I chose to just add a twine bow.

Monica had a special gift for all of us.  She designed a Multipurpose Glue Holder.  It keeps your glue upside down so you always have glue at the tip.  I use Multipurpose Glue for most of my projects and it’s a treat to have a tool like this.  For more details on Monica’s Glue Holder, pricing and shipping, you can email Monica at  Send Monica an email, she’ll be happy to respond.

Karen designed a simple Money/Gift Certificate/Gift Card envelope card.  More Warm Hugs Designer Series Paper, Stitched Circle Framelits, a Circle Punch, a few Red Rhinestones and a simple design make this project easy to make a bunch in no time at all.  The belly band is loose enough to slide off the card easily.  Thank you, Karen.

My projects were simple and quick thanks to the Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I chose these patterns because I’ve seen them done by others, but the paper pack is full of beautifully photographed winter images. The images can be cropped, added to a layer and a matching card base, stamped with a sentiment and embellished with a little sparkle.  This is another design you can duplicate and make a bunch in no time.

So, I hope you enjoyed today’s parade of projects.  We all had so much fun creating them together.  Many of these projects were created by other stampers and we thank them for their inspiration. Check back tomorrow.  I will have FREE PDF Tutorials on all of these projects.
