Affection Collection Convention Make & Takes part 2

I think I’ve fallen in love with the natural composition dsp! Its so cool!  This pouch isn’t my favorite project, but it is one I did most of at convention because I wanted the help on the flower mostly.  It did smash a bit in my overstuffed luggage too but I was able to round it out a bit.  The flower is a long skinny strip of fabric double lined (both sides) with sticky strip and gathered around a skewer into a rose/flower shape.

This set of love notes and a cute box was the make and take for our first day at convention.  The box has the leftover circles from the Daydream medallions set inked in versamark for fun polka dots.  The cards are really pretty too.  This might have been my favorite day of projects.

Join my Ink Pad Hostess Club!

New Ink Pad Club

Have you seen or used the new ink pads yet?  They are awesome!


  • Provide better ink coverage for your stamps!
  • Light-tap stamping produces flawless images!
  • Create wonderfully solid images. The Firm Foam releases more ink onto your rubber stamp than the felt pads. When using the Firm Foam pad, your stamp will get an even, solid covering of ink that you may not have been able to achieve with the felt pads. Please note: if you are using the ink pad frequently you may need to re-ink your Firm Foam pad more often.
  • Have a crisply printed, glossy label on the top of the pad that is easier to read and that will not fade or chip off!
  • Come with color name labels in all four languages (English, Spanish, French, and German)–just choose your language, peel it off the back, and add it to the side of the pad for easy identification!
  • Use the same patented flip-top case design that stores the inking surface upside down, so the pad surface stays moist!
  • Are available in all colors, including our exclusive In Colors!

About the Ink pad club:

I need 6 members for a 6 month club that costs $49 total per month (unless you live outside of my local area and I will add a flat rate shipping cost each month)

You will receive 8 ink pads each month, and hostess benefits one month

Hostess benefits include:

  • $40 in merchandise of your choice
  • 2 packages of in color cardstock
  • 1 dazzling details in original or Cherry Cobbler (your choice)
