This is one bundle from the Holiday Catalog that I don’t have yet so I wanted to be sure to share these projects with you because they are so cute. With just a little stamping, a quick run the the BigShot … add some designer paper and your done.

Check out the bundle here …

I don’t know which is my favorite, but if I had to pick, I think I would pick the box.  I love the color combination and of course … it has stars on it!!

Thanks for the visit, it is truly appreciated.

Have a joyous day!

Love the pattern of this paper … you could slip off the Halloween greeting and add a Thanksgiving greeting! Who wouldn’t love a cute little treat box filled with chocolate!

Last Christmas I made these cute little boxes for my Holiday Retreat attendee’s …

TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST … It does not include the “Throwback Thursday” projects.

Big Brothers / Big Sisters Organization Stamp Camp

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Yesterday afternoon I had the pleasure of working with the Big Brothers / Big Sisters Organization. The local Volunteer Center donated the facility for us … it was a wonderful collaboration by all so the “Big Sisters” and their “littles” could spend an afternoon together stamping.

The theme for the stamp camp was Christmas… the season of giving. The projects everyone made reflected a “giving theme” and I elaborated that the beauty of stamping is much like Christmas … a gathering of friends.

Our first project we did was the “Santa Card” … so easy but so stinkin’ cute!

We used the Real Red cardstock as our base and Basic Black for the belt. The buckle was created with the Silver Foil paper and the Curvy Label punch.

We used the beautiful new “Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper” for the fur on the jacket, and finished it off with the “Happy Holidays” greeting I borrowed from my November Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Our next project was the Christmas Treat Tree Box … this comes from the October Paper Pumpkin Kit. The adhesive is already on the cardstock … all we did was punch out the tree and add a window sheet … Ta Da!

I should have put candy in it for you … it really is cute, and who wouldn’t want a cute treat box filled with candy!

Our last project was the sweet little treat box … remember, our theme was “the season of giving”.

Create a belly band with any designer paper, the one shown here is retired. My poinsettia flower was created using the “Petite Petals” punch. It takes a bit of layering to get it to look this full but our group did an awesome job!

The front tag was created using the “Cheerful Tags” stamp set … just wanted to add a greeting to our gift box.  These “Tiny Treat Boxes” can be found in the Holiday catalog.

I hope you enjoyed viewing our Stamp Camp projects … I had a wonderful time with the Big Sisters and their littles. I also want to Thank the Volunteer Center for letting us all gather together for the afternoon in their facility.

Wishing you all a fabulous day today ~
