Hey there! I had a fun but busy Sunday! First, I helped in the nursery at church during the morning service. I do this once a month, partnering with my daughter, Jessica. It's always fun, but right now there's a bunch of little guys in there, including two of my grandsons, Jaxon and Liam, that make it even better!
After Sunday dinner at my house with 4 of my kids in attendance, I went back to my church to set up for the quarterly meeting of my Yes, Mam! Stampers!
I set up my display of my Leadership Board and more samples:
Our main activity was a Shoebox Swap:
Everyone is concentrating (and enjoying!) making each other's cards!
Here's a few of our creations of the day:
Michelle Daschka's "By the Seashore" creation, complete with a real sea shell!
Michelle also brought these little treat cup favors for everyone! She found the cups in the grocery store, then used her Owl Builder Punch to create coordinating little tags for a festive look!
Angie Lisk used the Chalk Talk stamp set and Framelits Bundle, Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Folder, and the colors of Crumb Cake, Real Red, Coastal Cabana, and Whisper White!
Inside she used the Envelope Liner Framelit Die to create a gift card holder with more stamps from the Chalk Talk set.
Martha Swift created a card with two options using the Regarding Dahlias stamp set, Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Folder, 3/16" Corner Rounder Punch, Encore Gold Metallic ink, and Gold Foil Paper. You could make this portrait version using the Starburst Framelits to cut the flower layers.
Or you could make the card landscape, hand-cutting the dahlia with Paper Snips, then punching Basic Black flower layer with the Blossom Punch, the next dahlia layer with the Pansy Punch, the next Basic Black layer with the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch, and the final dahlia layer with the scallop circle Itty Bitty Shapes Punch.
Linda Reaney's creation uses a bunch of stamps with Rich Razzleberry and Always Artichoke ink: Flower Shop, Petite Petals (Occasions), En Francais background, and Thoughts and Prayers! The "happy Birthday wishes" is from Petite Pairs. All the stamping is on Naturals Ivory, then layered on Always Artichoke and finally a Rich Razzleberry card base. She added a bit of Victoria Crochet Trim for the perfect final touch!
That's all I have for you today. There are a few more swaps to share, but I'm saving them for tomorrow! Oh, and in case you are wondering, the Tangerine Tango Stampin' Up! Inspire, Create, Share bag is from the Make & Take Session at Leadership. All attendees received one! Stampin' Up! is so good at giving little perks like these!

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!
