Blast from the Past from My Favorite Things
Well, it seems as though I've overlooked a couple of things I had to show ya'll from My Favorite Things! I'm trying to get all organized for the holidays (craftwise/shoppingwise/mentallypreparedwise) and realized that these projects had been neglected. Poor things!
Here is a scrapbook page that I did especially for Scrapper's Boutique. We have a wall of 12x12 layouts with photos of all the designers and teachers for the store. The gorgeous photos were all taken by our friend, Taj (who also designs for the store and is a fabulous photographer if anyone is interested in a cool photoshoot!).
I highlighted the page (we won't talk about the pictures here, ok?) with my very favorite a la mode stamp called Miss You a Latte because I would actually have coffee in that size if I could, not to mention I'd actually be that skinny if I could too. In the other picture, ya'll can also see the Jumbo Scallop Die-namics die I used on some cork sheets. Super fun! Ok, let's move on, shall we? And no, you are not allowed to click on the pictures of me and see them all big.
This little project here is made from the Cookie Box Template also from My Favorite Things (a concept by Jen!). I used the Pure Innocence stamp set, Making a List for some of the decoration and paper pieced her dress and her list (she's of course checking it twice).
Here's a detail shot of the top part of the box. You can see the tag is a sentiment from the same set and that I've used a couple of Die-namics dies on this one! Let's see, there's the Let it Snowflake die and the Banner Strip Die and Mini Alphabet that come as a set. I think these will be really fun to make as teacher Christmas gifts this year. I wonder if some Ghiradelli Peppermint Bark will fit nicely inside? My cookies are by Chips Ahoy.
SUSIE Q-TIP: When cutting your own Cookie Box template (available in all formats including "by hand"), use the piece from where it cut out the little window as a tag. Mine is layered underneath the oval for extra cuteness. Be sure and use double sided DP for some contrast.
