Play Day June

Having a play day today where we get together,
and make a swap and a make n take for each other.


I wanted to use my new Tree Builder Punch, with Sprinkles of  Life,
a new stamp set from Stampin' Up! where a percentage goes to their
charity RMHC, whom they've supported for a long time.



I love the sentiments, it's quite a whimsy set which appeals to the child within!


The punch has a tree canopy which can also be a cupcake, ice cream, cloud, bush, shrub etc etc!

I couldn't decide, so thought I'd share my process......
from left to right........in the end I decided on the simplest!
 .....the single white 'cloud'


I used my new Neutrals Background DSP,
which of course is absolutely GORGEOUS!,
to make these little gift pouches


Very simple. from 12" x 4" paper, scored at 1" on each long side,
and 5 1/2" and 6 1/2" on the short side to make the base.
Then fold central score lines to meet the edges
to form the base.......this is a bit fiddly!


I added an ample large bow in the new  luxurious Trim,
so they could recycle it!
They contained a mini travel Nivea Body wash 


I also decided to add a mini card 3" x 3", that fit our mini envelopes,
using some of the experimental tags.
I thought it a nice way to show some of the new In Colours...
Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder


I hope they like them, and can't wait to catch up and see what they've been doing.

My make n take is the Bokeh technique,
can't wait to show you!

  2. Wow! Using that tree as a branch and the foliage as a cloud really works great. Those treat bags are really cool!
