Leadership Sharing - Mixed Bunch Stamp Set and the Matching Blossom Punch

It's been a week since I've been on my blog and I promised myself that while at Leadership training I would sit down and post something everyday.  As you can see that didn't happen and so I want to go on record, I blame my roommates and the others in my group.  :)  Every time I thought I would sit at my computer  or rest they would drag me off on another adventure.  But it sure was fun!

This is the six of us at "make and takes".  At each place there were surprise table gifts from Shelli.  Well...they were a surprise to me since it was my first time at Leadership.

First is this cute fabric organizer.  It matches the bags we received.  The paper and fabric will be available in June when the new catalog comes out.  Yes, I did say June.  More about that later. 

This is the inside with pockets and cute ruffles

A quick and cute box made with the Fancy Favor Die.  

And look what's inside.  Yummy chocolate in three flavors.  I couldn't believe it when we were told that one of the Stampin' Up! employees made all the chocolate for over 1,400 demonstrators.  I was impressed!

This is one of the make and takes.  We made two of these, one to take home and the other to place in a box to be sent to The Ronald MacDonald House.  Now I know many of you think "I'm practically perfect in every way" (Mary Poppins) but I do make plenty of mistakes. :) This card was supposed to be made in portrait mode and I should have realized that when I had to overlap the green and white pieces way too much...but I didn't.  However the theme for Leadership and 2012 is "My Way" and I was able to say "I did it my way!  Love it!  

One more share before I leave you today.  These were my gifts for my roommates.  The boxes were made with one full sheet of Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper.  Got the idea from a non Stampin' Up! site. Inside were several little gifts including a pair of Valentine socks and some candy, of course.  If you would like to know how to make these boxes leave me a comment.

Tomorrow begins Sale-a-bration!  For every $50 you order (before tax and shipping) you get to choose one of the free items from the Sale-a-bration brochure.  That's for every $ limit. 

If your order reaches $150 you get a sweet tote bag and at $400 you receive an awesome bundle which includes the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper and the coordinating ribbon and brads found on page 7.  It is important to go through my blog to get to my Stampin' Up! web page so you will also receive your hostess benefits.

Thanks for allowing me to share with you today...please stop back tomorrow.

  1. Welcome home! Looks like you had a great time, can't wait to hear all about it.

  2. Thank you Brenda. I hope to see you at open stamp time on Sunday.

  3. Hi Diane! Looks like you all had a great time at leadership! I find myself lurking about your blog quite often for ideas. These boxes are darling... would you mind sharing how you made them?


  4. Hi Lisa, I don't know if you will be notified of my response so if not I hope you stop back to check. I have realized that blogger doesn't offer a place for people to leave a comment with their name and email address. Looking into how I can remedy that.
    I would be happy to share how to make the boxes. They are made from 1 - 12x12 piece of dsp. You could explain it until you were blue in the face and it wouldn't make sense. In my opinion you have to see it. I actually watched a video that I need to try and locate for you. Send me your email address and I will make sure I get it to you.
