Christmas Party

December 10, 2012

On Saturday I had a Christmas Party/Luncheon/GetTogether with my downline and my most loyal customers and hostesses.   The weather was kind to us, not too hot and no rain, so we were able to spend time outside in the fresh air.  Some of these ladies have been my customers since I joined back in 2007.

These ladies really spoilt me with some lovely gifts, lots were hand made.  There were also lots of chocolate and beautiful edible gifts.

These are the gifts I made for my downline.

I used various Stampin’ Up! fabrics to make each of them a wine holder and of course I had to add a bottle of wine.  I also made each one a decorated candle with a “plate” for them to sit on.  I just love that beautiful tulle.

The gifts I made for my customers were shared with us at the Brisbane Regionals by Ruth Clarke.  I took one of the Kraft Boxes which you can find in the Annual Catalogue and cut them in half.  I add in a strip of Window Sheet which I embossed using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  This allowed me to add quite a large bag of choccies for each of the ladies.  The top box holds a wooden flower which is infused with the most gorgoeus aroma and something I thought would add a nice touch to each of their homes.  I did add a little Designer Series Paper to the sides of this box.

I made a belly band from the 7/8″ Cotton Ribbon in the Holiday Mini.  To make sure it didn’t come apart, I used Sticky Strip and then added a couple of staples.  I made a rosette from Early Expresso card, added a stamped Christmas Tree from the Joyous Celebrations stamp set and a Cherry Cobbler 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle.  I punched a 1-3/4″ Circle from Cherry Cobbler card and attached it behind the ribbon and then using Sticky Strip stuck the medallion to the top of the 1-3/4″ Circle, so the whole thing can be removed to allow access to the contents of the boxes.

All in all it was a fabulous day.  I love spending time with these ladies who are now all really good friends.

I am taking a little break from classes so that I can get prepared for the New Year.  Hopefully I will be able to update my Classes page and you will be able to see the dates and what is coming up.

Don’t worry I will be back from time to time with the things I have been making.

Bye for now, Kris.
