It's A Backpack

Hi, my stamp club started over the weekend and this is the project we went with. Perfect for starting the school year off, so there were several girls that joined their moms in making this cute backpack.

I found a template and instructions on Splitcoast, here. One change I made in the box part was using the Fancy Favor Die. It was the perfect dimensions to fit the flap and pocket. These are perfect to hold little treats or a gift card in. Have fun!

All SU! Supplies:
Big Shot, Fancy Favor Die, Crushed Curry Polka-dot Grosgrain Ribbon & Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon, Melon Mambo, Razzleberry Lemonade, Flower Designer Brads

Hello, I thought I'd share a few things I've worked on this past week and just didn't get around to posting. The card was made for a swap I took part in at a team meeting. I think Bella Bleu DSP is going to be one of my new favorites, I just love the color and design.

The votives below I used for practicing glass etching. I couldn't believe how easy this was. I created stencils using the big shot, vinyl, and the butterfly and daisies dies. I just picked up a bottle of glass etching from a craft store, brushed it on after applying the stencil, waited a few minutes, washed off the glass etching cream and there you have it. That simple! I wanted to see how they'd look with a looking color added to them, so i used crystal effects and micro beads. I think they turned out pretty cute. I'm sure you'll see more projects in the future from me using this technique. :o)
Today I have spent most of the day cleaning up my stamp room. Boy, was it a disaster, I was having trouble finding things, so it needed a good cleaning. I finally put up the Create from decor elements. I think I've had this for a year now and never got around to putting it up. I need to put more of these up, they look pretty cool. Oh, and there's my cute little kitty (Carmela) in the picture, she loves laying across my work table. :o)
