Boxes and Bags, Handmade Cards, Timeless Tropical

Creativity Now!

I love having an excuse to gather with crafty friends, in person or virtually, and Stampin’ Up! recently held a creative event with 4 hours of stamping fun.  This was an event for demonstrators and we were given the option to purchase a sneak peek bundle from the then unreleased catalogue.  I decided to craft from my stash with the Timeless Tropical Bundle and the coordinating Designer Series Paper, which I hadn’t shown nearly enough love.

We were given all of the measurements and suggested products, and I did my best to follow along with the presentations, all the while getting creative and tailoring the designs to the products I was using – this was so much fun (and a little challenging at times!).

Luckily the colours in the DSP were close to the featured colours in the suggested product suite, and I had pre-cut all of the parts and pieces before the event.

The finished project was a gift bag, containing 4 cards, and I added matching envelopes (of course!)

The gift bag was really sweet and versatile:

The four cards coordinated with the bag beautifully.

If you feel like challenging your creativity, why not pull out a suite of co-ordinating products from your stash, and use my projects as your inspiration – what a fun way to spend an afternoon with friends, seeing what you all come up with!
