Brown bag special the stampers edition

Our 14 yr old was invited to a birthday party for one of our neighbors sons. My husband took him yesterday to get a gift but forgot a gift bag. No big deal lets just wait until Mom is on her way back from out if town early in the morning the day of the party before stores are open and ask her to bring one home.The only place to go get a gift bag that time of morning was my not so favorite store Walmart.I refused to drag a already mad cause I am up so early spoiled 11 yr old into to the store for a gift bag. So I am thinking there has to be a way to make something out of what we have at home. Here is what Silas and I can up with. The ever so handy brown lunch bag, Stamps, paper, scissors,punches and glue.
Brown bags cut and ready for stamping

We made Lego blocks

Superbowl Sunday I posted the picture below on social media and said the finished product can be seen later on my blog, Today is the day. Saturday night my 11yr old daughter and I finished the page. Everything is Stampin' Up but the dolls they are from  Juile Nutting also called Prima Dolls. If you now about Stampin' Up! most people think about cards and kits when you here that name, because of the wide variety of products they can be used for all your creative outlets. I am becoming a fan of mixed media, This page is not full of details but it sure did create a lot of fun moments and memories for my daughter and I. It was her idea to have the butterflies trail like that and I love it! Hope you like it!

NC Demo Sale-A-Bration Hop

Welcome to the first North Carolina Demo blog hop. We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demos from North Carolina we have decided that once a month we will have a blog hop to share with you all the great talent in our group. This month we showcase product from Sale-A-Bration during Sale-A-Bration you can earn free product from a selected catalog for every $50.00 you spend.Go to promotions tab to learn more. 

If you have started here you are in the right place. Below you will find a list of all the blogs and find out who is next. 

For this hop I have made two projects using the Wildflower designer series paper and Flowering fields stamp set

For this project I used some jewelry pieces I have had for years, so long I don't know where I got them. Once I saw the wildflower dsp I thought I would use that instead of a picture. The instructions called for some special glue hat I do not have. I used crystal effects which has become my go to adhesive for mixed media projects.

For this project I made a gate fold card the will be sent to Mom with a special gift. I stamped flowering fields image on vellum and colored the back using markers and added wink of stella to the front of one image.
