Shoe Box Swap for the Weekend Retreat

Team Creative Convention

This past weekend, we met at Onanda Park on beautiful Canandaigua Lake for our annual weekend retreat.  We had a blast getting to know each other better, being silly, eating wonderful food and, of course, stamping instead of sleeping!  Pictured here are the members of my team who were able to come.  We had a fun photo op our final evening.

One of the highlights of our weekend is a shoe box swap.  For those of you who might not have done one of these before, you design a card, cut all of the supplies for making the card, plus the punches, inks and stamps, and put them in a shoe box.  Saturday evening was the time to put them all together.  I was blown away by everyone’s creativity!  I’ll share some of the shoebox swap designs from others in another post, but for now, I’ll share mine.

This is the card I brought for my shoe box swap.  I was on a roll with the Baby Wipe Technique that I showed you in a previous post so I continued on that same theme.

  • Colors for the ink refills are Rich Razzleberry, Island Indigo, Soft Sky and Lost Lagoon.  Refer back to the instructions on this card to create your own stamp pad using ink refills.
  • I stamped on Shimmery White cardstock – it doesn’t look a lot different from Whisper White cardstock in the photo, but when you see it “in person” it does make a nice, subtle difference with a little sparkle to go with the snowflakes.
  • Accents are some fun Frosted Sequins along with a Rich Razzleberry Candy Dot, and the bottom banner is Rich Razzleberry Designer Series Paper from the Bolds Paper Stack, Lost Lagoon Ribbon and a Silver Button tied with White Baker’s Twine.
