Sugar Cookie Socials Continue in 2021

I love sugar cookies and always compare purchased cookies with my sister’s recipe. My sister recipe always wins! I follow her recipe when I bake my own but they never taste the same. I think it’s because she has a different terroir which is the countryside while I live in the city.

It’s tradition for my Mom and me to bake a batch to decorate for Halloween and then ugly sweater versions for the winter holiday season.

The ugly sweater versions started to make appearances during my January customer appreciation event. This year, I decided to move this event to December and host a zoom make and take social. Make and take packets were mailed out and much to my delight, stampers showed up to the zoom calls! It was such a good experience, I will be continuing this format.

The Sugar Cookie Socials will be held monthly on the 4th Wednesday of the month. Attend either session 9-10am or 6:30-7:30pm central time. How do you get an invitation to join the social? Purchase at least $50 (excluding shipping and tax) using the host code listed on the right side of my blog (current code is EUNVSZHN). If your order is over $150, do not use a host code so you can spend all the host rewards yourself. Either method will earn you an invitation to join the social for that month and snail mailed make and take packets from me. Order early in the month so there is time for me to prep your kits and for them to make the journey from my mail box to yours:) The kits will change each month and the designs kept a secret. I’ll ship your kits and email you the zoom call links automatically after your qualifying order is placed.

Sugar Cookie Social

I look forward to hosting my Sugar Cookie Social in December so I can share my ugly sweater sugar cookies! The cookie cutter is my Mom’s so would bake a batch with her. She also has all the sprinkles:)

This year, I’ll be hosting my event via zoom. I’ll mail make and take packets with a few paper crafting kits. Then join in during one of my zoom calls to assemble them with my instruction and see what everyone else is creating using the kit contents and their supplies. The format is kind of a mystery stamping adventure too since I won’t share the designs prior to the socials.

How do you get an invitation to the event? If you have placed a product order greater than $50 (excluding shipping and tax) through my online store this year, I will automatically mail you a packet. Not sure if you placed a qualifying order with me? Click the Contact button on my blog and ask I check for you. OR…place a $50 or more order (excluding shipping and tax) on November 24th during the Merry and Bright Flash sale (details for that sale by clicking here) using host code MZXJJXH4 and that order will qualify you to receive a Sugar Cookie Social packet.

Zoom calls are Wednesday, December 9th, 9:30-11am and 6:30-8pm central time. Zoom call links will be emailed to you. Jump on the call time that works for you.

Last, let’s share our favorite, sweet, holiday treats during the call. Have it handy so you can show it on camera. It will be fun to see what cookies we like and what drinks we enjoy. Maybe next year we will be back to sharing my ugly sweater cookies in person:)

Looking forward to stamping with you then!

I am stretching my fall design because it’s still fall here where I live. No snow has stuck on the ground yet, just wet leaves. I worked a good portion of those into the garden on Tuesday. My vegetables will grow high and pest free next year!

Assembly line stamping…I use a desk calendar blotter and past month calendar pages for a larger stamping area when assembly line stamping.

I snail mailed a stack of these cards for the Sugar Cookie Social invitations because I really liked the color combination. It was fun to take the time to custom create my own designer series paper too. Even if you did not get an invitation, you are still welcome to attend. Sugar Cookie Social event details are in this post. Hope you can make it!
