Stampin' Blends and Sharing Sweet Thoughts (Part 2)

Good morning! I have two more cards using the Stampin' Blends and the Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set. On Monday, I shared with you the first two cards, which were actually the two projects I sent my blends Club members. These are the two "alternate ideas" included in their PDF. 

Here, I used the Tutti Frutti DSP. I just love that gingham lid for this jar! I colored the strawberries with the Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin' Blends. 

And the second uses the Sweet Soiree DSP. I colored the butterflies with Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends. 

Thanks for stopping by today!

January Blends Club- Sharing Sweet Thoughts

This month's Stampin' Blends Club projects features the Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set. I had so much fun playing with this stamp set and using my Stampin' Blends to create vivid images. Did you know this stamp set is Stampin' Up's Ronald McDonald Charities set? Proceeds from each set go directly to the charity! 

I provide my Blends Club members with exclusive video tutorials each month featuring their new Stampin' Blends. We worked on making an Ombre back ground and creating shiny strawberries here. 

And for this card, we made water! 


Along with their make and take kits, they also receive an embellishment each month. This month, it was the Clear and Glitter Epoxy Shapes. 
And I made a tag for each one using the Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set! So fun! 
I'm already cooking up an idea for my next technique club- stay tuned!

Sure Do Love You Treat Tags and Class Packages

Good morning everyone! Today, I want to share a little night into my recent Sure Do Love You Class and how I pocked it up. I always put some kind of treat in my class kits. I try to find something that kind of goes with the theme of the class. This was easy since the stores are filled with Valentine treats already!

I made some tags for each treat and kept them somewhat simple since I had to make SO MANY! I used the colors on the package to determine the color on the tag (Flirty Flamingo and Night of Navy.) 


The sentiment is layer on a heart cut from the Box of Love Framelits and then layered on a stitched square and lastly, layered on a scallop square. I added a Flirty Flamingo Twine bow. I guess it wasn't all that simply, huh? Lots of layers! LOL! 

The treats were found at Target. They are those yummy what chocolate covered pretzels. It took everything in me now to eat some myself!! 

Once I have everything cut and sorted into individual packets, I stack them up along with the ribbon and embellishments and treat. I put them in large self sealing cello bags. 

I always ship my classes Priority Mail. The PO usually can get them delivered in 2-3 days. 
If you've never purchased a class to go kit from me- you should give it a try! It's fun to receive happy mail! I take it very seriously and put lots of effort into them to make sure they are enjoyable and worth every penny! 
Watch my Calendar page for my February classes- they're FUN!! 

Don't forget to join my Facebook Group tomorrow at 2:00 CST for Facebook Friday! This week, were making Party Panda projects! See you then!
