A fun gift for my stampers

Once in awhile I like to reward my stampers with a little gift just for coming to stamp with me!  I made this cute little flower basket filled with drink packets.  I got the idea on pinterest, so here’s the link so you can make one!


Again, I used the pop-up posies kit, it has these little cupcake liners and big Summer Starfruit brads that make great daises. I layered these over a flower from the mixed bunch set.

I tucked a little thank you card into each one too, here’s a peek at that.  It uses the petite curly label punch and the pretty petites stamp set from SAB.  I punched out images from the Patio Party designer paper, which is where the Summer Starfruit dot paper comes from in the basket too.



I Am Inspired Pinboard from Convention

This is the pinboard we created in the I am Inspired extra class at convention.  There are many elements that are meant to be used individually, the flower, the flag, the banner, but I decided to display them all together 🙂

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.

Daydream Medallions Make & Takes from Convention

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.

Comfort Cafe Tea Holder

Did you know? The new catalog starts today!  A great new layout, and awesome new product and some returning stuff too like the stamp set I used on this cute tea holder.  It was from the last holiday mini and is called You Are Loved.  The flowers in this set match this designer paper pretty well 🙂  There’s a tutorial to make this tea holder here: Tea Bag Holder.  It’s really pretty easy to make!

This is a fun corner bookmark (fits in the top corner of your page).  The directions to make this was in our demonstrator magazine Stampin’ Success in March.  I used the edgelits to curve the end for a fancier look.  Mary Fish had a great video tutorial, so click her name to go see it!

Be of Good Cheer Fancy Favor

I really love the Fancy Favor Die, its probably my favorite box/bag to make with the big shot. The fun scallopy edge at the top is probably my favorite part.  And its easy to dress up with some designer paper. This is the new Be of Good Cheer DSP and it is my favorite Christmas paper that we’ve had yet.
