Presentation is Everything!

TGIF!! The countdown to school starting is ON like Donkey Kong!  I have enjoyed this summer with my kids but I am SOOOOO ready for them to head back to school, and really they won’t admit it but I know they are too.  It’s time for another FUN project for the Stampin’ Celebration Inspiration Challenge and we are working with a sketch.  I had FUN creating with it, let’s see what it inspires you to create.

I created a simple package that could be perfect for lots of different occasions!  This is also a sneak peek of a FUN project that we will be making in the Sept. Simple Stamping Class, more details on that soon!

Simple Stamping Class for Sept 2014

Dressing up your packaging is simple and really packs a punch!

Here is the sketch that we are working with, it’s super cute!  I of course flipped this sketch on its side for my project.


I started off by placing my cello bag into the Tiny Triangles embossing folder to give the bag a fun but subtle pattern to the bag.  Then I decided to use some craft white ink and white embossing powder with my heat tool to heat set the image onto some Vellum card stock, I think the effect is so stunning!  The punch tag created specifically for this AWESOME set really completes this project perfectly.  Complete with a few layered metallic paper strips cut into flags then finished off and secured with a few staples.  Your pretty packaging is complete!

Simple Stamping Class for Sept 2014

This FUN stamp is from an ALL NEW set featured in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.

I am creating several of these for the loving friends that were sweet enough to give me Birthday cards and gifts over the last few weeks.  I thought this would be a great, and sweet, way to show my appreciation.  I LOVE this NEW set called MERRY EVERYTHING, it’s featured in the upcoming Holiday Catalog and it has a coordinating punch, IN LOVE (did I tell you I love it? LOL)!!  You will DIE when you see how adorable this set is and how perfect it is for SO many creative projects!

Play along with us at SCIC and pop over to see what the other amazing Design Team Members created, there is a TON of inspiration and creativity to feed off of.  Play along and share your creativity with us.  It’s SO much fun!!
