Hello! This is a great week for me!!! It’s “Dancing with the Stars” time as well as “American Idol”. So it also means that I will be in my craft room with my TV on watching my favorite shows and stamping. “Pride and Prejudice”,
“Emma”, “Sense & Sensibility” and “Persuasion” (all movies based on Jane Austen’s books) have been put away for this season.
This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is Blooming Blossoms. My task was to create a gift set. So here are two ideas — both quick and easy.
The first is a Soap & Toothbrush Dispenser set. I had purchased the “stampable” dispensers many years ago at a rubber stamp convention — 10 years ago to be exact. I guess I was just waiting for the right project to come along as well as the right Designer Series Paper (Greenhouse Gala) to inspire me to finally use this set and create.
The second item is also a quick and easy project — a desk set with matching pen. I actually had this on my desk, so I decided to upgrade it by changing the pattern. What makes this a real quick and easy project, is that I used the Stampin’Up! Greenhouse Gala DSP and cardstock. No stamping involved at all!!! I love using the punches so I took the opportunity to use the Scallop Trim Punch to embellish. If you’re wondering what do to for a Hostess set, this is a great idea!!!
I hope these ideas will help you. Thank you for dropping in and visiting my site. Have a wonderful week!!!
