Stamp – A – Faire 2017 Begins!!!!

August 27th, 2017 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Stamp-a-Faire No Comments »

Well it has been a whole year since the last Stamp-a-Faire event and I look forward to this one.

 

This one should be a doozy since it is their 10th year Anniversary!   The theme this year is Anniversary!  LOL  Imagine that.   Going with traditional themes on annversaries I should see the following ideas flow from the creative team over at Papertrey Ink!

 

Here is the list of traditional gifts that we will focus on.  There will be designers for each anniversary, however I will only focus on doing one card for each anniversary.   Makes it much easier for me to actually finish the challenge.

As always, my lovely sister will join me.  I hope she posts her cards for all to see.

Ok, lets go!!!

 

I like to create goodie bags for events at my house.  This year I went for the black and white theme.

I got the following from Michaels:

Black tray, Note pad with Initial, Flip message Pad

The rest I got from Amazon

My Favorite Things Black and White pattern paper, Black and white bakers twine and a black pen with a big old diamond on top

I also got the following:

A tote bag with my initial on it.  (also Michaels) and now you can see the tray.

Nuvo Drops in black and white

Bath and Body Works hand cream and body lotion

Zippered tote mesh bag

Mini frame with Initial (Michaels)

Salt Pinch with initial (Michaels)

I think the goodies set the tone for a good day!
