My daughter is off to a birthday party today and her friend likes to make cards and scrapbook, so what better gift than her own kit with everthing she needs to create a few fun goodies! We used the new Flirtatious Designer Paper from the fabulous, new Idea Book and Catalogue! You can view it online at http://www.sheilabatty.stampinup.net/ or contact me for your copy - host a workshop and its free to you! The colors in this paper are just perfect for a "tween". We made some pre-cut cards, decorated the tin and included buttons, ribbon, flowers, brads and some stamps so she can create her own masterpieces! The flowers on the tin are the paper daisies and we dyed the smaller one to match our paper. It was so easy, peasy to do with the re-inkers - just took some drying time. We created a box out of 2 12X12 pieces of cardstock - that was simple too. ( I had received a baby gift in one from one of my downline and kept it as a template - thank you Joanne) It was alot of fun to spend the time with my daughter creating it together - I love that she loves to be in my workshop with me, hopefully it will be something that we will share for years to come.
On another note, I held my annual garage sale of my retiring items today, it was busy, busy this morning, but there is still a fair amount left. I have stamp sets, ribbon and paper mostly. Just send me an email if you want to have a look at it, or I can send you a list of what stamp sets I have.
Have a great long weekend!
