When my friend, Claire, chose a Thankful Theme for The Paper Players Challenge #269, I knew some great people I am thankful for everyday.
Since stamping is my obsession, it is always on my mind…therefore all the wonderful ladies I stamp with at classes are on my mind every day. I am so grateful for the friendships I have been blessed with since I started sharing my hobby with others. It is just amazing how we all have such a great time with each other- different personalities and different lives but all women enjoying each other’s company as we get creative each month together. I love all of them, dearly. Here was a little token of my thanks to all the girls who take time out of their lives to make me smile at class:
I used the SU Acorny Thanks stamp set and coordinating punch along with my 2 inch circle and 2 3/8″ scallop circle punch to decorate my SU Baker’s Box made with the easy to cut out die! I went with a neutral base of Crumb Cake and accented it with Mossy Meadow- my favorite green right now. I added a little Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum to coordinate with the Gold Glimmer paper on the acorn. How awesome that the sentiment fits inside the Itty Bitty Banners Framelits!
TIP: Don’t put together your box without the handle openings cut out! Oh yeah, I thought I could just do some simple hole punches to rectify my error but I just could not get them straight…maybe after cutting and putting together 60 boxes my mind and hands were not working….lol. So I pulled out some gold binding clips I had. Well, I had three…so Amazon helped me out and I ended up with pretty coordinated gold clips!
What’s inside? Washi tape fit perfectly!
Gotta run to set up my next class and give out the favors!
PS…thankful for all you followers, too!
