Night Before Christmas Hot Chocolate Packet


Who doesn't love a piping hot cup of Hot Cocoa at Christmastime? The Night Before Christmas Designer paper had my mind rolling to make this Hot Chocolate Packet Holder. It's a cinch to make! You could make multiples for quick gifts this Christmas. The Cherry Cobbler striped ribbon is my favorite Holiday ribbon! And this die cut "Tis The Season"...… LOVE!

The first card is a case from Tami White featuring the Snowfront stamp set.  Do you remember the Waterfront stamp set? This is it's winter cousin and its stunning. My favorite part is the little red birds.


The second card is a case from one my Canadian demonstrator friends Ange McKay. Isn't it adorable? My card class cards are quick AND cute, which makes a perfectly enjoyable stamping experience. This card uses the Snowman Season stamp set from the Let It Snow Suite

papermadeprettier Holiday Retreat 2019 Recap!


Twice a year we gather for a FULL WEEKEND of crafting, and somehow, each year, my heart leaves more full! The papermadeprettier Holiday Retreat 2019 video was this weekend and we had a blast. 23 of us gathered at Ferncliff Camp and Conference Center for inspiration and laughs galore. 


Guests were greeted with an adorable set up of materials used to make their 9 make and takes. These places were straightened and fancied by Chad Williams from Stampin' Up! He's an expert since he has done this before at On Stage events! 



Did you catch that? Yes, Chad Williams, our Demonstrator Development Manager attended our retreat. It's cool enough that he flew across the country to craft with us, but even cooler that he jumped in and helped at every step. He is truly a servant leader and embodies the Stampin' Up values. 


I am so grateful to the sweet helpers that helped with set up and clean up!  I couldn't do it without them! 


We ate some pretty unhealthy things this weekend including handmade donuts from Michelle! WOW! Have you ever had a bacon maple cheese donut?  


We usually start with get to know you games, we learned some interesting facts about each other! 


Retreats call for something special! Special table gifts are in order and they are distributed throughout the weekend for maximum fun!  


We had 9 make and takes that were prepped and ready to go for the attendees, mostly centered around the Toile Tidings suite with Wrapped in Plaid a Shaker Dome ornament shown here. I will post another post about the Make and Takes later.  


One of our favorite things to do when we gather is swap. Here are our swaps and a close up of one of them. I will post a full blog post on those later. Pajama Contest entries!  PLUS we had prizes and treats from Chad. We love prizes! 





Would you like to retreat with us in the spring? 
 EARLY BIRD special for retreat attendees ends 10/21, sign up now with only a $25 deposit!
