Thursday evening I was blessed to host the Central Iowa Stampin’ Up! demos for our annual Christmas dinner and party.

Stampin Up Triangle Boxes made by Marcelyn Churchill using the Be Merry Designer Series Paper (DSP). Please see more card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

Marcelyn Churchill, my sweet friend and team mate made Triangle Boxes which we filled with Steve’s fudge for a table gift.

Everyone made an ornament from the Be Merry Kit as a make and take.  The ornaments were much bigger and cuter than they looked in the catalog.  If you haven’t bought a kit yet, you should.  You do need a hot glue gun to put them together.

Marcelyn also made these tea light Poinsettias in mini coffee cups.

Marcelyn  made five strings of Paper Lights Garland.  The colors are Tempting Turquoise, Elegant Eggplant, Emerald Envy and Real Red and Smoky Slate.  The ribbon is the Quilted Christmas 1/4″ Ribbon from the Holiday catalog.  Yes, Marcelyn was a busy elf. Not sure what I would do without her!

We also had a gift exchange.  Everyone made beautiful gifts using current Stampin Up products and wrapped the gifts with Stampin Up products.

    I realized on Friday that I had not E-mailed you for details of when the party was. I looked back for a time but it just had the 30th. My loss, it looked like everyone had a great time and I would have loved to meet everyone. Gorgeous projects!

    I apologize to MARCELYN in misspelling her name!!
    I have pinned the CS lights garland..maybe I will finally get a string of them made..like her idea of using ribbon rather than string or jute.

  7. Karen Halterman

    What a lovely table setting and the table scape is gorgeous-love the garland outlining the mirror and Marilyn’s additions to it all.
    Very crafty, creative demos in their gifts-all were so pretty!!
    Thanks for sharing with us.
    Unsure on the “shares” until I see what it is.
