WOW Team Holiday Card Swap

WOW Team Holiday Card Swap

Woohoo, time for another Team Card Swap. Our Holiday Card Swap is over the top fantastic. Let’s start things off with my contribution. You’ve already seen my Still Scenes snow globe card. Because, in an earlier post, I showcased this one.  Don’t you just love snow globes?

Next up, we have Nancy Sanders, Stampin’ on Sanders Pond.  Nancy chose a set from the Annual Catalog, Winter Woods.  There is also a coordinating die set, In the Woods. I love all the texture and interest Nancy created with the embossing folder. The focal image is just everything!

Heaux, Heaux, Heaux, time for Santa. Team member, Molly Downing, Crafting Memories with Molly, designed this one. It’s fun and filled with lots of techniques and layers. It’s also a fabulous fancy fold using the Holly Jolly Christmas bundle.

Two Team Members chose the Toile Christmas bundle, for their entry in the Holiday Card Swap. But, each of their designs is unique. And you’re not going to believe this when I tell you. Both of these lovely ladies are NEW to my WOW Team. First up, Amy Long used both the Toile Christmas Bundle and the All-Around Wreath Dies.

Ready for another card with this gorgeous set. Tonia Cooley is an accomplished artist. Her skills are evident in this fabulous design. Which, by the way, is a fancy fold.

Let’s switch gears for a moment and take a look at a Thanksgiving card created by team member Margaret Savage. Get ready, it’s going to make you smile. She used the fun set, Birds of a Feather.

Remember, I mentioned earlier that there are some fabulous sets in the Annual Catalog. Denise Walker, took full advantage of the Making Christmas Bright set. This one coordinates with the Christmas Bulb Builder punch.

Last, but certainly not least, our very talented team member, Lisa Lepine, designed a gorgeous card. Because she created a diorama fold, you can display the card all season. Lisa chose the Frosted Foliage bundle.

WOW  Steel Magnolia Team Retreat

WOW Steel Magnolia Team Retreat

Woohoo! I’m back from my WOW Steel Magnolia Team Retreat and it was a BLAST!! The creativity in one room was so fabulous, second only to the amount of sharing that was going on. To start things off we all gathered at the Tangi Retreat House in Independence, Louisiana.  It was a very comfortable sweet house that can house 14 creative souls.  The workroom was fabulous and I decorated in Steel Magnolia Pink Fashion.

This was the welcome to everyone that attended, a fabulous laminated grid sheet, agenda, gift and a cute mason jar drinking glass with a magnolia corsage. I was very humbled by the outpouring of love and generosity. Here are photos of the gifts from my team.

This beautifully decorated box contained my gorgeous magnolia necklace.

Members of my team and their guests created magnolias for my wreath that I am proudly displaying in my studio.

The over the top card, created by team member Lisa Lepine, was absoulutely gorgeous and so thoughtful. We had so many activites, sharing and caring, shoebox kits, decorating southern belle hats, team building activities, and so much more. Here are a few snapshots form my WOW Steel Magnolia Team Retreat.

At our WOW Steel Magnolia Team Retreat I hosted a card challenge. They had limited supplies, everyone had to use the same set, Good Morning Magnolia.  Please visit my WOW NOLA Creations Facebook page for photos of all these gorgeous cards.

The team card swap was fabulous and a highlight of the WOW Steel Magnolia Team Retreat.  Here is a video featuring all the team swaps. Caution – They are over the top fabulous!!!!

Because it’s just too hard to capture the beauty, creativity and thoughtfulness we all shared this weekend, I tried to highlight some of it in this video.

Are you just simply blown away? Would you like to take part in my next WOW Team Card Swap. Let’s get you signed up, so you can be the next member of Susan’s WOW Team.

We concluded the weekend with our Sunday lunch and our Southern Belle Hat Show.

This weekend was an absolute pleasure to plan, organize and execute for my team. Thanks so much for stopping by. Until next time, Create Something Beautiful!
