I didn’t mention in my Registration Day post, but you may have seen my sneak peek last week. I always make something special for everyone from our group who goes to Convention, and extra little treats for my LovenStampfuls demonstrators who attend.
This year I made bag tags (did I mention that the Convention bags are fabulous this year?!) that we can all put on our bags to keep them from getting mixed up.
The tags are about 6 inches across, and created from the Designer Rosette Die (see it online). I’m in love with this die, in case you wanted to see more project ideas. The center of the die was created with My Digital Studio (learn about the free 30 day trial) and the World Traveler Photobook Template (see it online – 130066).
For my LovenStampfuls teammates, I made some extra little treats. I just realized that I never got a photo of the insides! I’ll have to get those for you, too. But until then, here’s the treat pouch that I made with the Scallop Square Die (115950 – see it online) and the Floral District Designer Series Fabric (126893 – see it online).
I’m in love with the whole Floral District Product Suite (see more online)! The tags are created with the Loving Thoughts stamp set (w 125843 or c 125845 – see it online). I love this set for simple gifts! (see more ideas on my blog)
And with my suitcase nearly empty without this huge box, I think I have room for a few souvenirs
Last month I was supposed to attend a Girl Scout awards night for leaders. I volunteered to bring along flowers for the awards recipients, complete with stamped tags celebrating everyone’s achievements. I made about 15 bouquets to hand out at the event.
I have to say that I’m completely addicted to the Apothecary Art stamp set (see it online), and the coordinating Labels Collection Framelits (see them online). In fact, here are more sample ideas on my blog, including a Video Tutorial. I was so happy when they all came out in the New Catalog on June 1st!
Each little bouquet of a rose, baby’s breath and some greenery was tied with a piece of coordinating ribbon (since Stampin’ Up! has great ribbon colors to match the Card Stocks and Inks — see online).
Here’s a shot of one of the bouquets (yes, sorry it’s laid out on my kitchen floor!):
So next time you have an event — think about how your stamping supplies can come in handy for making it special!
Yesterday I shared an Apothecary Art card that was pretty speedy — but today’s card is even quicker. It features the Note Card & Envelopes (see them online) and the Apothecary Art stamp set (see it online).
The coloring is quick & easy, plus there is a fun trick to use a Square Punch to make the ends of your paper banner (the trick is on my latest Video Tutorial).
Looking for more quick card ideas? Here are a selection of cards on my blog featuring the Note Cards & Envelopes!
Did you catch my Video Tutorial on the Apothecary Art stamp set and the Labels Collection Framelits last week? (check it out now) Well here’s a Quick Card that still uses the Apothecary Art stamp set (see it online), and the Framelits (see them online), but on an even simpler card background.
Isn’t the background color pretty on this card? The color is Blushing Bride from the 2010-2012 In Color Collection. Keep in mind that these 5 colors will be GONE after May 31st when the current catalog retires. If you want to have them in your collection, be sure to get them now!
