This month Christine sent the design team a package full of goodies and we were required to make something with just the items in the package. The package included 2 chipboard coasters, brads, patterned paper, cardstock, gems, ribbon and the new set Sweet Treats. I really wanted to use the coasters. This stamp set brings us a new "character"...this cute little bear. As soon as I saw the designer paper in this kit I was in love! Pink and brown AND paisleys?!? My favorite color combo and I adore paisleys. Since my oldest daughter's room is pink and brown I decided to make a frame for her. The photo is one of her and her Build-a-Bear taken on her birthday when she turned 8.
Chipboard coasters are really easy to cover. You can use mod podge on them but for speed I just used Sticky Strip from Stampin' Up! to adhere the paper. The pink gems are self adhesive. I used my slit punch to make a scalloped edge of the printed paper and the ribbon that Christine sent is so yummy and matches so well! You know what? In the future when I make scallop edges I don't need to use my slit punch because Stampin' Up! is getting a scallop edge punch! One of those long edge punches that does several scallops in one shot! I pre-ordered it and can't wait to play with it. I also used my Bind-it-All to punch perfectly aligned holes to thread my ribbon through to hold the frame together. My daughter fell in love with it.
Now, the kits that Christine sent us are available for you too! Here is what you get in the Sweet Treats kit:
10 pieces of cardstock
6 pieces of pattern paper
7 yards of ribbon
36 brads 16 gems
1 Stardust Glitter Pen
1 Sweet Treats Stamp Set
1 Instruction sheet to make 5 cards
There is enough in this kit to make the 5 cards plus plenty more. This will be an every other month kit. It will be available when the stamps are officially released which will be Monday, July 7, at 10:00 pm. If you join us over at the forum at All That Scraps we'll be having a release party starting at 8:00 est lasting until 10 when you can buy 'em yourself!
