Tutti Frutti Purse is Perfect for Graduation Gifts

Big Shot/ Die Cut/ Holidays / Special Days

Greetings Stampers and Happy Friday Eve! Around our office, everyone loves Thursdays ALMOST as much as Fridays. Today's project, Tutti Frutti Purse is perfect for graduation gifts! No matter if elementary school, junior high, high school, or college graduations are on your calendar, this little gem filled with folded up “bills” will be a big hit! You can crank them out so easily.

Change up the project to be a messenger bag or backpack to make it more gender neutral. Although, my husband has been known to carry my purse at times on vacation. He might go for one of these, especially if it is filled with money! 🙂

Tutti Frutti Purse is Perfect for Graduation Gifts

This paper is on the retiring list right now but you can still grab it, along with some other coordinating items.

In the Land of Dungeons and Dragons, Knights and Wizards

Die Cut/ Samples/ Stamping

Hey Stampers! No, I'm not talking about the popular “Dungeons and Dragons” fantasy tabletop game. I do know quite a few professionals who are obsessed with this game, but it's really not my cup of tea. What I'm spotlighting today is also in the land of Dragons and dungeons; it's the Magical Day Suite of products from Stampin' Up! This suite made it's debut for a limited time in the Occasions 2018 catalog; sadly it's disappearing on May 31 when the catalog period ends.

In the Land of Dungeons and Dragons, Knights and Wizards

The stamp set has mythical and whimsical images, perfect for all sorts of occasions. The little blue wizard in the picture above brings Merlin the Magician to mind. Isn't he adorable? Notice the coordinating framelits that make cutting out stamped images a breeze!

The coordinating papers and washi tape make it so easy to complete your projects, whether these are cards, party invitations and decor, or scrapbook layouts from a trip to Medeival Times Dinner Theatre.

In the Land of Dungeons and Dragons, Knights and Wizards

Here are just a few samples of things you can create with this suite of products.

In the Land of Dungeons and Dragons, Knights and Wizards

Thanks for popping in today! I hope you enjoyed our time in the Land of Dungeons and Dragons, Knights and Wizards! You can purchase any of these products right now at my online store. Remember they are only available until May 31st!

Gift Card Swap…on Steroids!

Die Cut/ Holidays / Special Days/ Join My Team

Hey Stampers! It's Friday Eve…aka Thursday night. One of my favorite nights of the month when it is Card Swap night! Tonight our theme was gift cards and it truly was a Gift Card Swap…on Steroids! What made it extra fun tonight was one of our out of town swappers, Chris joined us on Facetime for the entire time. Chris is one of my Girls, INK team members and she is truly an artist. She now lives in Albuquerque but tries to join us for our monthly swap. She mails her stuff and we all eagerly await the arrival of her envelope into our midst. Here are tonight's creations:

Gift Card Swap...on Steroids!

These are all exquisite, don't you think?! Since I bragged on Chris, hers in in the upper far right corner of the grouping. Check out the detail on the little gift package.

The thing I most love about our swaps is everyone comes up with a different idea and they are all fabulous! I hope my share today gives you some fun ideas! Many of these are done using Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper. We have lots of different packages from which to chose!

Happy Friday Stampers! I hope you finished your week with a Magical Day! I had kind of a yucky week but it finished off so great today! I'm doing a presentation at our Stampin' Up!
