Daisy Crate

G’Day Stampers,

Until I am back into the swing of things I am keeping today’s post very short but I am sharing with you a couple of gifts I created using the “Wood Crate” Framelits, Page 212 of the 2017 Annual Catalogue.

I did these for a Expo I attended a couple of weeks ago & much to my surprise they proved very popular, especially to the kids.  I say this because I don’t usually do this sort of thing but I do think they were such a hit because they may have been a little different.

I stamped the Hardwood Background Stamp onto a piece of Night of Navy CS in Night of Navy Ink & die cut it with the Wood Crate Frameit by running the Big Shot.

I stamped 2 daisy images onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Daffodil Delight, punched with the corresponding Daisy Punch, adhered together & then adhered to the front of the crate.

I embellished the middle with a Gold Faceted Gem.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Gift Set

Over the past week or so I’ve shared with you the little gift I created for Kathy who signed 20170201_063901_resized_1blup to be a SU! Demo.  I don’t do all my gifts the same as I like to create individually for each one.

Today, I am sharing with you, the Gift Bag created to house those gifts including the card created to go with them.   I created this bag a long time ago & have always loved it.

Again, I’ve used the gorgeous “Falling in Love” DSP from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.  I’ve kept it very simple as I wanted the DSP to be the showcase.

I used Soft Sky CS for the base of the bag.  A piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS was embossed with the lovely Falling Petals EF before being adhered to the bottom part of the Bag, while a piece of the DSP was adhered to the top.  The handle has been created from a piece of Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon.

I stamped “Just for You” from “So In Love” Stamp Set onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS with Sweet Sugarplum Ink, die cut the circle using the Stitched Shapes Framelits & adhered to a piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS which had been die cut with the Layering Circles Framelits & adhered to the bag where it opened.

The 2 Butterflies were punched from Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper using the Bitty Butterfly Punch & the Elegant Butterfly Punch before being adhering to the bag.

I hope you like my creation today.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Notebook

You may remember seeing a couple of projects I had created for Kathy last week as part of her welcome to the team when she signed up to become a new SU! Demonstrator.  You can see the previous items here & here.

Well, today is the Notebook I covered for her.  I am loving the final result of the book considering I wasn’t sure how it was going to end up looking like.

I covered the back & spine of the Notebook with Soft Sky CS & the front with a piece of  “Falling in Love” DSP.  I then die cut a piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS with the “So Detailed” Thinlits which is part of the “So in Love” Bundle, page 52 of the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.

This was cut back to size & adhered to the front of the Notebook.  I decided the book needed a Bookmark, so I adhered a piece of Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon down the side.

Still not happy with it, I then decided to add Kathy’s name to the front.  I die cut her name from the Little Letters Framelits (retired), 3 times in Very Vanilla CS as I wanted her name to pop.  I adhered all the letters onto each other with the top letters being a little off centre.  They were then adhered across the Die.  The book seemed to come alive.

To finish it off, I punched a small butterfly from Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper using the Itty Bitty Punch & adhered it to the top of the Notebook.

Pop back in a couple of days time & I’ll show you what I created to hold everything.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
