|Hello Friends :) ... How was your weekend? Did you squeeze any stamping in?? I carved out some time to make these goodie bags for my stamp class. After I "teach" I always leave my class feeling so fulfilled and happy. I'm lucky to have such a wonderful group of women that truly make me feel very special. Thank you ladies :)|
|With that said it shouldn't be any surprise that I wanted to make "my students" a little something special for them to celebrate Valentines Day. The bad part is I purchased the candy in the beginning of the week so I had five days of staring at the chocolate & tasting the chocolate before I sealed the bags. Lesson learned... seal the bags immediately!|
|This lovely background stamp is one of Penny Black's newest 2012 stamps called "All Over Pattern". It's not available yet but, I'll let you know when it will be available. I stamped onto this spellbinder die with this bright & beautiful ink. Glued down some scrap paper that I had cut from class cards.|
|Score the die right down the middle. I added some fabric ribbon on top of the green and wrapped the edges. The ribbon is similar to this. The cellophane bags are from Simon Says Stamp too. To attach my homemade packaging I stapled it onto the bag right under the heart.|
I finished off with my favorite Spellbinder hearts with this stamp called "Love Assortment" . Stickles were added to the leaves. Speaking of Penny Black if you leave a comment here by Tuesday you have the opportunity to win some of the NEW 2010 stamps!
