Flower Patch Stampin' Up! note card

Stampin' Up! Festival of Trees Donation


For our final activity at the Founder's Circle Retreat last week in St. George, UT, we divided into 3 groups and decorated 3 Christmas Trees with Stampin' Up! and other handmade decorations! These trees will be donated to the Festival of Trees event which benefits the Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City, UT.  People will bid on these fully decorated trees! How fun is that!?


There were approx. 130 of us on the trip and we were divided into 3 groups, and smaller teams within each group.  Each group decorated one tree.  Each team was in charge of making one kind of decoration, and some demonstrators were in charge of the actual decorating.

Our team was the Fa La La La La's and we were in charge of making these stars and Baker's Twine Ornaments:


Shelli stopped by our table for a photo and to see how we were doing on our stars.


If you don't recognize these fabulous stars, that's ok.. they are from a brand new kit that is coming in the October Holiday supplement!!!  If you don't have a demonstrator and need a supplement, let me know.. I'll be mailing them the 2nd week of October.

SNEAK PEEK of the Many Merry Stars Kit!


The largest star in the kit was used as a decoration with the wrapped gift boxes!
