Stamp Club End


It was bittersweet last night as my stamp club that started in November came to an end. I will miss seeing my 'friends' once a month but I surely do need a break. I should have taken some pictures with them last night. I awarded Pam with this little box for PERFECT ATTENDANCE. You should have seen the look of sheer surprise & utter delight when she got opened it to find all the goodies!! I used the Occasions Mini Summer Picnic DP. Sentiment is by Stampin' Up! Absolutely Fabulous set. I stuffed an assortment of matching circle fire & square ice rhinestone brads, styled hodgepodge hardware, matching ribbon & felt fusion flowers.

Here is the hostess gift I made because she loves DP and has the 5-in-1 Envelope template. The big one uses the template here is the tutorial for it by Amy Celona: Amy's 5 in 1 Template Pocketbook It's really difficult to photograph something like this, you almost need a stand that the ribbon handle can hang from it order to see it well. On the sides are jumbo eyelets and ribbon connected with Fire circle brads to match it.

The adorable mini purse is by Elizebeth and here is her tutorial: Elizebeth's Favor Bag Tutorial and there are nuggets inside matching the DP. Both items are held closed with velcro pieces.
The hostess adored them, as well as everyone else.

Donna, these are all adorable!

Glad you're taking a break, I did the same at the end of last year for six months and it really help me prepare to start it up another club this year...except we're meeting every other month - this seems to help as well.
