The outside looks (of course) like a purse! The inside features spots for photos and journalling and two Carousel notes pull out of the inside envelopes with spots for photos or messages. This is a GREAT Mother's Day gift -- or something special just for you.

Wild About These, Too!

So here are the party goodie bags. Another friend from the Wild About You stamp set, another piece of Jersey Shore Designer Paper, a dab of Pumpkin Pie striped grosgrain ribbon and then-- my find of the week. Colored lunchbags at Target (where else???) that match Stampin' Up's Brilliant Blue exactly!

A few wriggly jungle animals and some candy and it was all done!

Wild About This Invitation!

There's so much to tell you about this one! First, it uses the Sale-a-bration set "Lots of Thoughts" on the front. The cardstock is that fabulous Wild Wasabi Textured paper that's part of a special deal right now. Seems there was quite an OOOOPS cutting holiday paper and we are benefitting. I made the pieces into pocket cards.

This invitation is the first time I have used the Jersey Shore Designer Paper and it is so happy and bright. I used the Hugs and Wishes set for the party details on the insert. And I am now the proud owner of the Wild About You. When one of my girly-girls picked an inflatable place with a jungle theme I had an a-ha moment and ordered right away!

Stamp Sets: Wild About You, Lots of Thoughts, Hugs & Wishes
Paper: Wild Wasabi Textured, Brilliant Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Ink: Brilliant Blue, Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Scallop Punch, 1 3/8" circle, Striped Pumpkin Grosgrain

Free Rub-Ons!

I really love the set of rub-ons that is one of the *free* choices during Sale-a-bration. You get 4 sheets. the images are identical -- but you get one page of white, one page of black, one page of olive, and one page of chocolate brown. That is a lot of rub-ons!

The quality is first-rate -- they adhere nicely to all kinds of surfaces and don't peel at the edges.

I used the Chocolate here to make a quick and easy 6 x 6 scrapbook page (stop me if you've heard me go on and on at one of my workshops about the freedom of small pages and favorite photos!).

Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip
Rub-ons: Love and Happiness
Accessories: Ribbon Theater Originals
