I konw that posting for TLC164 is a bit late, but I wanted to post and share my fun creation! As you are aware of my love for the summer picnic designer paper...and this fun tart and tangy stampm set! How fun are these cute stamps! I love how they are perfect fits for the cirlce and scallop punches-I love when products coordinate and work well together! It makes using them so much easier!! So, Thank you Stampin' Up!! Ok, so this litttle bag is the home for the cards in the next photo. I made 3 of each card and have the little envelopes to go along with them. I am giving this little bag away, so I thought I'd make some pretty generic cards, just some "For You" and "Hello"..I think even people who don't usually give cards away can use something as generic as that, right?
The bag is made with just one sheet of 12x12 paper, the tutorial is super simple and wow...what a fun little tote! Yes, my daughter had a great time carrying it around..we've got to get her one quick! I think the front of the bag is pretty simple, just stamped the orange and apple, on ww cardstock, then punched them out with the 1 1/4" circle punch, punched a red and pumpkin 1 3/8" circle, then a red and pumpkin scallop, layered them all, and attached them to the bag. The orange was attached with dimensionals. For the sentiment, I used the Fundamental Phrases set, and the word window punch.
These cards are cardstock measured 2 1/2x7". They little envelopes came with the pocket notes from Stampin' Up! and are so cute! I used the same supplies...love the Dew Drops I got from Ellen's store! Follow the link and it will take you right there!

I hope my friend will like them! I think these would be fun gifts for teachers too! Hope you all have a wonderful day! I'll be back tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!

Love them~ I haven't played with my stampin up stuff forever!! Great cheery colors.
Glad to see you trying to resurface, and play in challenges when you can~but the babies come first, enjoy it while you can!
And if you don't have any unity stamps- you can still join in!

Cute projects!!!!!! You are awesome. I don't know if you noticed on my blog that I do SU too. I LOVE it. Anyways...thanks for saying hi. You look familiar (I need to see more pic of you!), but I totally remember Dallas. He liked my sis and they went out a few times and I hung out with them occasionally. FUNNY! What a small world.
Do you have Dallas's blog? I would love to see him too, and so would Shauna. Funny thing, just the other day we were talking about him!!!!!! Crazy. I can't remember what brought it up, but we were wondering if he ever got married?? Too funny.
Thanks for stopping by!! EFY was the best huh :)
