Earlier this month I had some of my downline over for a Christmas stamping get together and potluck dinner. It was so much fun. We had a pretty small group since everyone is so busy this time of year but that made it even more special for the ones who did get to come.
After we ate an awesome dinner, we did a gift exchange. There were some awesome gifts. Here are a few of the pictures. Here are Cyndi and Brenda showing off their presents.
Cyndi got a blanket and stamped necklace.
Brenda got a handmade bag and jar of goodies wrapped in a handmade fabric decoration. These were hand sewn using our Deck the Halls fabric from the Holiday mini.
This is Liz showing off her wreath.
This is Kelly showing off the gifts that she received. I made these. The bag on the left is a sandwich type bag that I decorated and filled with chocolate and the gift on the right is a piece of framed art.
Rachelle received this gorgeous frame that Kelly made by doing the stencil embossing on there. Kelly came over yesterday and showed us how to make these. I will post mine later.
After the gift exchange, I had a few projects for the girls to make. We did those cute notepad holders using the DVD cases that Stampin Up sells. Each girl got to personalize their own. Then we made those cute Hershey bar holders. I will post a close up view of that tomorrow. We also made a CHristmas card. I gave all of the girls little gifts too including a bag of my famous Christmas candy.
