This was the Hostess Gift at my stamp club this month. I had to use the new die - Berry Basket BigZ L Die. I didn't put a handle on it but we totally could. It's actually very roomie and I wasn't sure what to fill it with so...
I decided that some 3x3 cards and envelopes would be perfect (along with a little candy). I continued the theme of using Snuggles & Smooches stamp set for the cards. I used some scrap pieces of Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack. Something neat about this stack of paper is that one side is color and the other is black and white.

We had such a fun time at stamp club this week. We were missing a few people due to the nasty crud going around but all in all it was a great time!
This is one of the projects that we did. I love making the swirls look as though they are flowers (along with rhinestone centers) and the colors we used. Makes me smile!

Remember this set?
There is something about the swirls and the sayings that made me HAVE TO HAVE IT! I love it so much that I've decided that is what our Stamp Club this Wednesday will be using for our projects.
No, I'm not going to share the actual projects but I am going to show a sample that I made using the set.
Does it look familiar? I "recreated" it from a Stampin' Up! sample they had on their blog. I wasn't sure what colors they used but I used what I thought looked good together. I really liked how they pieced the words together to create another saying...one that I wouldn't have originally thought of.

Happy Saturday to you! This weekend my daughter is participating in the Spring Fling so I'm surrounded by 5th Grade Orchestra Kiddos! She's very excited to get some additional Viola instruction though and hubby & I get to go back to the 'ol college stomping ground so it's a win-win.
I wanted to share a little treat bag I made. In the Occasions Catalog there is a Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies. When I saw it I knew it was the first thing I was going to order!
Using the dies you are able to assemble treat bags. On this one I used Vellum. You can see from the pictures that it's a decent size bag. I put a full size Hershey bar in mine (which I had to cover with pretty paper).
You don't just get dies for the bag - you get TONS of extras too! I haven't even had an opportunity to use them yet but I know I will. On the Stampin' Up! YouTube Channel there is a video on how this die works along with some wonderful samples.
