Hostess Night

Blogger is finally letting me add photos!!
Here are the items that were made at my Monday night Hostess Club.
Our first project was a tag that could be used on a gift bag, a card, or scrapbook page.
We used Sahara Sand cardstock and the Top Note Big Shot Die. We used the soon to be retired Bronc Buster set with Chocolate Chip Classic Ink. We sponged the ink on top of the Die Cut to give it a leather look.
We added a Jumbo eyelet using the Crop-o-dile.
Then added a bit of Rope Twine to finish it off.

We made a gift bag using the Stampin' Up! white gift sacks. We used the Ahoy, Matey set - another set that is soon to be retired. We used Basic Black Classic ink on the bag and on the pocket tag. To create the tag, I used a Long Note with one side folded in half to create the pocket for the crayons. We used Sticky Strip to hold the sides of the pocket down.
A 1-3/8" circle punch in the top with a quick scissor snip to create the handle.
You can't have a gift bag without tissue paper. So we used the Matey's Map wheel - soon to retire - on white tissue paper. Super easy!

We also created a Valentine box using the Hostess Level 1 Prints pack, and the Big Shot Scallop Envelope Die. We added a cello bag of Dove chocolates to finish it off.

I made this for everyone. I used the Pillow Box Die with Pacific Point cardstock. I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the new single stamp - Elegant Thank You - that will be in the Spring-Summer Idea Book & Catalog. Each box contained an incentive stamp.

Here's another treat that I gave the girls. I made the "belly band" using Riding Hood Red and the birthday hat and present from the soon to be retired Crab & Co. Then stamped the birthday sentiment from the Family Phrases set on Pink Pirouette.
