Holiday Crop Recap

Hello everyone! Oh my goodness, has it really been almost a week since I posted!! What!? I guess I was just so wrapped up in Thanksgiving, I didn't realize how quickly time passed! 

First, I want to remind you that today is another HUGE Doorbuster Sale at Stampin' Up! Here is my favorite bundle in the TODAY ONLY sale! 
The Seasonally Scattered Project Life by Stampin' Up Bundle! Hurry! It's ONLY today! 

So last weekend, I had my first Holiday Crop. It was SO FUN!!! I wanted to give you a little look into all the things we did. First, this was what was waiting for my guests at their seats when they arrived. Their "swag basket" contained 1/2 roll of Real Red Ribbon, 1/2 roll of Old Olive Twine, two Itty Bitty Boxes, a sheet of Stampin' Dimensionals and a package of the Snowflake Sequins. Oh, and some chocolate of course! They also received a coffee cup with their initial on it, a name tag, a coupon and a letter from me with a sketch challenge! 



I had so much fun filling their swag baskets!
(The cute little strawberry baskets were found at Michael's by the way!)

The mugs were so cute.. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of them with their tags! Boo! Oh well. I made the monograms on my Silhouette using the MDS Timeless Type Punches.

I also made them special name tags to use when they borrowed my tools. Kind of like a place card!


Here is a look down one of the tables before most of them arrived. I rented a local neighborhood clubhouse for this crop. It was perfect! 


 I brought lots of my tools which everyone enjoyed using.


We had a really fun raffle. They could place their raffle tickets in the bags of the items they wanted to win the most. You can also see one of the games on the left side- name that SU color.







 I set up a Hot Chocolate bar which was a high hit! They all got to use their new coffee mugs! 

 I had a station for the stamp a stack class as well as two make and take stations. Not everyone did the Stamp a Stack. They could come and bring their own things or they could choose from some class choices I had. Most people chose to do the Stamp a Stack and the Project Life December Daily album.
 

Once everyone arrived...

Tammy was so excited! I was especially impressed with her cooler of diet coke. We are sisters for sure!! LOL! ;-)






This is Teri, my amazing downline. She helped me take care of the raffle. She is so good with helping me keep track of my money!! Thanks Teri!!

This is Jil, another of my downline who helped that night. She was the Queen of the Make and Takes. Thanks Jill!! 


I was excited to see all the fun things everyone was working on. So many fun ideas! 




And this was my view for the night. Lots of things to work on!


It was an amazing event and I think everyone had fun. I can't wait to do it again! I am already planning one in the winter!! Thanks to everyone who came!
