New Stamp Club - Part 1


My recent stamp club just started a few weeks ago.  I have 6 members and we meet once a month.  For their gift, I made personalized mini canvas tote bags (found the idea in the demo only forum on SCS) that they can bring their own adhesive, atc swap & scissors with them each month & take their projects home in.  I made them a personalized scissor charm from polyshrink that they loved (it is what is on the right side of the bag handle).  I stamped the bags with craft ink using Eastern Blooms and glued on rose 5/8" grosgrain ribbon with Aleene's tacky glue, finishing it off with a felt fusion too flower & rhinestone brad. 

The ATC I made matched the tote, since I had all the supplies out.  Everyone makes a set of them to swap each month. I'll share what everyone made in a future post, as I have not taken the pics yet.  Also in their bags was a set of retired 6 x6 sheets (but all current colors) of designer paper, punched out flowers & square scallop punches to match, as well as assorted ribbon, brads & other stuff so they can make some cards. 

Here is a picture of me & Vanessa {One Day At a Time} our first hostess.  I am holding up Charlotte's bag since she was not able to join us (due to a family commitment although she really wanted to be!) but she was there with us in spirit.  

We had a lot of fun; the ladies enjoy one another's company, Vanessa brought some yummy food to share and is so sweet, spending a little time talking with DMIL which was a blessing to me.  It reminded me once again how fortunate I am to have her.  Stay tuned for Part 2...
