Facebook LIVE – Hang Your Stocking Kisses Box Treats

Hang Your Stocking Kisses Box
Hey Guys! I had so much fun making these Hang Your Stocking Kisses Box Treats on Facebook LIVE with you today! I missed you last week while I was in Salt Lake City for OnStage. OnStage is stamping and learning and laughing and eating and playing with paper all exclusively for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Even though it was so so much FUN and I got to get my copy of the 2018 Occasions Catalog and 2018 Sale a bration brochure – I still missed crafting LIVE with you last Friday!!

Today I made a version of my upline Angie’s OnStage Make n Take. We had a team dinner, that was fantastic, with Make n Takes – squee! Stamping makes EVERYTHING even more fun! Oh and by the way, as part of my team you would be part of Angie’s team too! Double awesome. I love my up, down and side lines! It’s a Stampin’ Up! family. If you have ever thought about joining Stampin’ Up! but you have yet to take the plunge, I would love to talk to you about what’s holding you back. Call or text me (847)922-6795.

This sweet little Hang Your Stocking Kisses Box Treats would make wonderful table favors for your Christmas dinner. I love that the box starts with a 6×6″ Designer Series Paper, I used the Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper Stack. You can use your 12×12″ Designer Series Papers and get four boxes out of each sheet. COOL!

The stamp set I decided on is Stampin’ Up! Hang Your Stocking. I love the polka dot sock! There is a coordinating die set too – Christmas Stockings Thinlits Dies. Enjoy the Facebook LIVE video archive and the printable project sheet with full color photo, measurements, cutting diagram and supply list.

Thank you for stopping by today! Stay Crafty.

Flying Home is a brand new stamp set from the upcoming Occasions Catalog. Flying Home was gifted to Stampin’ Up! leaders at the CenterStage luncheon given to spoil and train leaders within Stampin’ Up! OnStage.

We made this card at Coffee and a Card today. Tonight, I am making this card for each one of my Stampin’ Up! team. I am so grateful for all the amazing stampers who have chosen to join me on this adventure. It’s is because of them that I am a leader!

I am so stunned by the ranking and so grateful to those who put me there!

    Colorful Seasons Tonight – Coffee and a Card Wednesday and another quiet week at Kitchen Table Stamper

    Kitchen Table Stamper - Marisa Alvarez
    Hey Guys! It continues to be a busy summer with lots of ups and downs here at Kitchen Table Stamper. I have some house guests until tomorrow so it will continue to be kind of quiet here.

    We have enjoyed a very nice visit. Pictured above, left to right, my husband Max, myself, my cousins Adam and Katherine at Lynfred Winery in Wheeling, IL. Max and I served a bottle of Lynfred Sangria on Saturday night and everyone fell in love. Since Lynfred is local, and special, we took them out to the winery on Sunday. We tasted and they stocked up on some local wines to take home with them.

    Coffee and a Card – Wednesday July 12th

    I know some of you have seen on Facebook, or you know me well enough to know, our family suffered a huge loss this weekend. We are mourning the loss of my mother’s brother, a beloved uncle, who was a big part of my childhood and growing up. We will be remembering him on Wednesday night.

    I still plan on having my usual Coffee and a Card on Wednesday morning, look out for a preview tomorrow. The only difference is that this Wednesday I am going to wrap up Coffee and a Card at noon sharp. I need some time to prepare my children and offer help and support to my aunt and cousins. Thank you for your understanding in advance.

    Please plan on joining me for Coffee and a Card Wednesday from 10 am to 11 am so that we can have enough time to enjoy a coffee and make a card before noon.

    I am just a text or call away if you need me. Thank you for stopping by today and thank you for your support, love and encouragement through broken ankles, holidays, house guests and big huge losses. I appreciate you and I am so grateful.

    Lemon Zest Glassine Treat Bag

    Lemon Zest Glassine Treat Bag
    Hey Guys! Here is the Lemon Zest Glassine Treat Bag tutorial that I promised.

    I mentioned in this post that things are going to be a little quiet around here. It’s wild busy here getting ready for our 18th Annual Independence Day Bash. Now I am also preparing for some out of town company from July 7th through July 11th. It’s crazy town here! I am so looking forward to my Indiana family coming to visit. I don’t see them often enough. Next week will be light too, but I AM HERE just a text away!

    Now on to the Lemon Zest glassine treat bag tutorial. I made these bags for the girls on my Stmapin Up team who participated in my 2017-18 Stampin Up Catalog Designer Series Paper Sampler. I run a paper sampler when new catalogs are released. It’s a good way for my customers, and for demonstrators on my team, to get an up close look at all the new Stampin Up Designer Series Paper before committing to buying a whole pack of any one design. Awesome. When you are a member of my Stampin Up team, you get a discount on the paper sampler! Double awesome.

    Join my Stampin’ Up! team HERE – wait til July 1st though, trust me.

    These are the treat bags I sent as a thank you. They would make great DIY Party Favors, thank you gifts or would be a nice way to present a gift card.

    Thank you for stopping by today! Have a happy and safe Independence Day.

    Stampin’ Up! OnStage Minneapolis – Squee!

    Join Stampin Up
    I know I have been so quite, right?! I am getting ready for and traveling to OnStage. OnStage is for Stampin Up demonstrators only, it’s great being a demonstrator because of exclusive things like OnStage where we Stampin’ Up! demonstrators get training, do stamping and witness the 2017-18 Stampin Up catalog reveal! I will have the newest Stampin Up catalog in my hot hands Saturday. See why I squee!?

    That brings me to the point of my post today. With the new 2017-18 Stampin Up catalog comes the retirement of the 2016-17 catalog and all kinds of product will be going, going, gone! I just wanted to take a minute to remind you specifically about the 2015-17 In Colors. THey are beautiful. I think my favorite is Mint Macaron, or maybe Watermelon Wonder – NO, it’s definitely Cucumber Crush!

    Either way, the 2015-17 In Color Ink Pads, Reinkers, Cardstock, Markers and Accessories are going to sell out fast! I already stocked up.

    Alright, I have a little housekeeping for you today.
    I am in Eagan, MN staying with friends and going to get back to them. I will be home Sunday night.
