Peaceful Petals


WOOHOO!  ANOTHER great FREE PREVIEW PROJECT today by our Design Team Member, Deb Currier!  You'll love her Card Set for the Spring Collection!  AND…make sure you check out the BLOG CANDY while over on Create with Connie and Mary!    The Early bird special – $24.95 for 4 weeks of EXCLUSIVE projects ($5 savings) goes through Saturday!  Make sure to sign up today!  We are featuring products from the Occasions Catalog in our projects and cards this time!




OOPS!  My title is wrong…this is the Simple Stems stamp set!  Yikes! 


I thought I'd show you the project that I made for my Roommate at Leadership this year!  I used a couple of the new sets in the Occasions Catalog…Simple Stems and Just Sayin'! 


I found these key/mail caddy's that were black with a zebra print on the front.  I removed the zebra paper and used it as a template for the Kaleidoscope Designer Paper I glued on the front.  The caddy was a perfect size to hold a notebook and pen and a little package of Hershey nuggets wrapped in a cello bag!  I'm wanting to make one up for myself to hang my Stampin' Up! lanyards.  You could also put in a package of decorated note cards!  I grabbed up a bunch of them to do "something" with someday, and think this turned out really cute!


Leadership Gift 2014

I'm mad that I didn't keep the measurements of the notepad folder I made…I'll have to recreate it at one point.  I like that the pen is held in a pocket so you don't lose it, too!  Everything fit in the caddy and then I wrapped it up and placed in a large cello bag tied with ribbon.




Isn't it CUTE????  I really hoped she liked it!


Don't forget to go check out who has BLOG CANDY today, a free subscription to the SPRING COLLECTION of Create with Connie and Mary!  And see the cute PREVIEW PROJECT card set she did!
