Sad Goodbye...Said With Treats!

My littlest bro just graduated from college, and he and his wife are headed out into the big bad world.  They used to live about only an hours drive away.  Now...it would be like a 20 hour drive to go see them!  (Thank heavens for planes!)  They just left...I am so excited for them, but so SAD for us!!!  Will miss them terribly.  Since they had to drive their car all that way, we decided to stock them up with treats and food gift certificates...but of course it had to be given in style!  :-)  So here are the treats, all packaged up...


I took this burlap sack and made a little gift pouch for them.  You can't even see everything in there...it's packed in pretty good.  But look at this cute tag...


This stamp is now retired, but it just fit perfectly what I wanted to say.  That label shape (the Daffodil Delight piece) is new though! And I can tell will be used a lot.  LOVE it!  It's from the "Lots of Labels" frame lit set. 

I actually used the scallop punch to make that Pumpkin Pie starburst.  You just punch out a scallop, then put it on the sticky part of a post-it (just so you can grip something).  Then just put it back into the scallop punch, lining the top of the scallop up with the valley of the scallop, and punch again!  Here is a visual...



VOILA!  A cute Starburst!  


Then once the tag was made...I just hot glued it onto a wooden skewer and stuck it in their package.  A fun little pop for some fun treats!

June Paper Pumpkin!!!

Just had to give a little shout out to this month's Paper Pumpkin box!   (For those that don't know...this is a monthly craft project that gets delivered to your house for just $20.00 a month!  It comes with everything you need...stamps, ink, and all the supplies!  This month was a set of 8 cards.  And. I. LOVE. THESE. CARDS!!!


Here are my cards that I made...


And then a few close-up's...






I LOVE the stamp set in this kit!  I made most of these cards into graduation cards that I needed.  These stamps did not come with the set....they are from the "Celebrate Today" stamp set that you can order.  But here is what I did...


Hope you enjoy these cards!  If you have any question on Paper Pumpkin...let me know!  Thanks for visiting! designwithink@gmail.com.

June Club Project...It's a Boxed Thing!

Time to share the project we made at club last week!  I LOVE the new box die in the new catalog! So I wanted to use it right away.  Here is the box we made...

Along with the box, I LOVE this saying (from the "Friendly Wishes" stamp set) that is on the tag.  It says, "You're the friend everyone wishes they had."  LOVE!

Here are a few other pictures...



How yummy is that Lace ribbon and the Blossom accents?!? LOVE!!!

Here is what it looks like opened...



Hope you enjoy this project!  Thanks so much for visiting!  Let me know if you have any questions!  designwithink@gmail.com

June Club Card...Easy Watercoloring!!

Quick card to share today!   This was the card we made at our club night this week.  The first month with a new catalog and all sorts of new products at my fingertips...I didn't know where to start!  I wanted to use it all!  But I LOVE the new "Remarkable You" stamp set, so I went with that...


We started by stamping them onto watercolor paper and then coloring them with ink and blender pens.  If you smoosh the ink pad together before you open it, you will end up with ink on the lid.  Then you just pick up color with the blender pen and color away.  It's such an easy and fun technique! 


Here are some pictures of the details...




Hope you enjoy this card!  Thanks so much for visiting!!!

A Little Happy Is Always...Well, Happy!

Sorry I didn't share anything new last week!  My husband and I were on a Caribbean vacation for our 10th anniversary!  It was a well-needed break, but I'm happy to be back and sharing new stuff this week!  Have a few things to share with you, so stay tuned!  It is NEW CATALOG time!!!  YAY!  (If you don't have one, please let me know and I will get you a free copy!)

I needed a little piece of home decor the other day.  I had this frame that I loved the shape of, but didn't like the design on it.  So...can of spray paint and a few stamping supplies to the rescue!  This frame seriously took like 10 minutes to put together.  Here is the frame...


How cute and easy!  (Now...the Designer Series Paper that I used here is retired...sorry I didn't share this before it was!  But you can EASILY switch out any paper for whatever matches your decor.)  All I did was cut a piece of Designer Paper that fit in the frame (4"x4") and frame it.  Then use the "Hello You" Thinlits to cut out your "happy" word.  Just adhere that to the frame and display!  So easy and quick!

Hope you enjoy!  Hope you get inspired to use your stamping supplies to add some cheery to your decor!  :-)  Let me know if you have any questions!  designwithink@gmail.com
