Yesterday I had a super fun day at the Christmas party for the wider Stampin' Up! team that I'm part of. We're called the Stampin' Stars :) It sounds a bit cliched but we really are like one big family. But like most modern, spread out families, we don't have the opportunity to see each other as much as we'd like to so that's what made yesterday extra special.
We celebrated success with a little awards ceremony, we also had a raffle, party games and of course party food! A LOT of party food!
The lovely Pip and Kim receiving their awards from Natalie. Kim won two which is why she features in more pics.
Now, being a creative bunch there obviously has to be something crafty involved so we were asked to bring a WOW swap (something that makes you go WOW when you see it) or a show and tell.
I have a slight obsession with the little vintage milk bottles and the Snow Place bundle so I combined the two!
I used black and white Stazon ink and I must admit it took a few attempts to get the stamping right but if you're quick enough you can wipe it off with a baby wipe and start again! The 'snowballs' were stamped with a sponge dauber, really easy and effective.
To create the slots to feed the straws through I used the Curvy Corner Trio punch and opened it up a little more with scissors.
I've listed the products used below but please do ask if there is anything more you need to know or just leave a comment to let me know what you think :)
