Last weekend was the Stamp, Scrap & Create Retreat and it was so much fun! The theme was birthday and on Friday night all the girls received a little birthday themed treat. The idea came from a swap that I received from my friend Linda at the Stampin’ Up! Leadership conference back in January. I loved the idea so much I wanted to use it for the retreat. And then Cindy and I decided to go a bit further and use the idea for our Make&Take project on Friday night so we got creative and made three more designs – a graduation, wedding and baby themed bag. All the bags were made using the Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies and the Celebrate Today stamp set.
As part of their goody bag of supplies everyone received part of a pack of the Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series paper, pieces of all the coordinating card stock and pieces from the Basics Hodgepodge clips. Here is a closer look at each treat bag.
The Birthday Bag was the one that Cindy and I made ahead of time and left as a surprise on everyone’s work table. Inside I added party supplies – a whistle, buzzer, candy stick, blow pop, and a lottery ticket.
The end of the school year is here or almost here for everyone so many are in need of graduation ideas so we wanted to create a graduation bag – fill it with some cash or a gift card and the new graduate will be thrilled.
And it’s wedding season too – we focused on hearts – the heart clip and a glittery heart die cut. Are you headed to any weddings this June? We had one last year in June but I don’t think I have one to attend this year.
The colors in this paper even made a fun baby version – the Bermuda Bay has the blue for a boy and the Calypso Coral has the pink for a girl and the Crushed Curry can go either way. Fill it with something for the new little one – socks or a onesie would fit inside or something for the new mom (and dad too).
A fun collection of little bags for all occasions and the Celebrate Today stamp set works for all of them – perfect for birthdays, graduation, wedding and baby! Everyone at the retreat seemed to love making these bags.
Thanks for stopping by today. I’m trying to get myself back to a regular posting schedule and will try to have some regular features on certain days of the week. I’m working on my plan and now to see if I can implement it and then keep it going!
Have a great day!
