Hand Sanitizer holder

Hello Stampers!  One of the fun things about Convention, is that we have the tradition of making what we call Roomie gifts.  This all started when there was only one room full of our group, now we have grown, but we keep making gifts for each other!

IMG_0131 This was the gift that Sarah made.  Can you tell what it is?  Here it is opened up:

IMG_0132 It hold hand sanitizer!  This is so fitting because Sarah and I are the germophobes of the group!  I carry hand sanitizer with me everywhere I go!  Love it Sarah!

IMG_0136 This is the super cute pouch that Julie sewed for us!  I love it!  And, we didn't even know that she was a seamstress!  Now she's going to be in trouble!!!

Keep watching for more great gifts from my gals!

Convention Make n' Takes

Hello Stampers!  Let's take a look at the rest of the Make n' Takes from Convention this year!

IMG_0116 This is one of the Mini Muslin Bags (132180) from the Holiday catalog.   So easy to stamp on with just our Classic stamp pads!

IMG_0120 This is a card that was made in My DIgital Studio!  I love the way we used the Hexagon punch (130919) to punch out the front and it is then adhered inside the card! 

IMG_0083 These are some notecards that we made using the Hello, Lovely stamp set (w-130240 c-130243).  Here they are all packaged up to give as a gift:

IMG_0118 We used the Tag a Bag Gift Bags (131370) again!  The notecards fit perfectly inside these bags!  Very fun!

I love all of the make n' takes that we get fron Convention!  They do such a great job to really give us a variety of projects, and to show us alternative ways to use the products!  Thanks Stampin' Up!

Convention Make n' takes

Hello Stampers!  I was cleaning up my stamping studio the other day, and I came across my Convention Make n' Takes!  I never complete them at Convention because I don't stamp well in a setting like that.  I feel to rushed!  So, I always bring them all back home and complete them.  And,  here they are:

IMG_0115 This is one of the Tag a Bag Gift Boxes (130927) from page 158 of the main catalog.  I love these boxes!  They are a great size!  This is looking down from the top at the box.

IMG_0114 This picture is from the side.  We actually laid a piece of cardstock over the top of the box, inside the transparancy sleeve, so that you couldn't see inside the box.  I store my washi tape rolls inside one of these boxes!  Perfect fit!

IMG_0119 This is a card that we made using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (w-130514 c-130517) and the Hello, Lovely stamp set (w-130240 c-130243).  We got both of these stamp sets for FREE for attending Convention!

IMG_0117 This super cute bag is from the Tag a Bag Gift Bag (131370) and the Tag a Bag Accessory Kit (130153).  Super cute!  I will do a video soon on how to make these bags have a bottom so that they stand up!  The stamp set we used is the Tag It stamp set (w-130300 c-130303) which is the Ronald McDonald stamp set this year!  That means that for every stamp set that Stampin' Up! sells of this set, $3 will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities!  We have donated over 1 million dollars to date!  I love working with this great company!

Come back tomorrow and check out the rest of my make n' take projects!
