Travel or Scrapbooking Blog Hop

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring projects that are travel or scrapbooking related. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Melanie’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I have lots of scrapbooking ideas floating around in my head with memorabilia and photos to make layouts complete. But with a busy last week which included a tragedy in my town blogged about here, I went with my second project idea; a pillow gift.

I have a weekend retreat in August I can use these for or roomie gifts for Onstage in Orlando in November. That follows our travel related theme since they will be traveling to a fun destination. My project is a wooden crate pillow gift with matching hand stamped tissue paper and a coordinating lemon stamped and punched gift note for a personal message.

Side view to show these really do look like old fashioned wooden crates!

Create 1 crate as shown from a 6×6 inch patterned paper from the Wood Textures dsp stack. The corner with the missing dsp will be ok since it will be covered by the full bottom piece from the opposite side. You will know what I mean when you start creating your crates:)

The Wood Textures Designer Series Paper is part of the buy 3, get 1 free sale going on through July 31st. Full details about the sale are in this blog post.

Here are all the supplies used plus the Big Shot. The sentiment stickers are from the Memories and More Delightfully Detailed card pack. I just happen to pick the sticker that color coordinated with the colors of the wood paper and treats:)

I was awaiting the July Paper Pumpkin kit so I could have snagged the blue tissue paper to line the crate with and also color coordinated the candy to the blue tissue paper. But the mailbox did not have my kit today. So I needed to use white tissue paper from my wrapping paper stash and decided to stamp lemons on it. Neat trick for when you really want your gift to be coordinated!

Please add a comment and let me know what you liked about my design.
