Tonights Stampers 10

Tonight's stampers 10 projects are made using the Garden Whimsey set, Alice who is tonight's hostess made the choice of the set were using & I'm so glad she did as It's a set I haven't had out in a while.

The first project is a bag-e-lope this bag is made using a 5"  x 7" envelope, but in reality you can use any size envelope. 
It is so easy 
These are the instructions for the construction of the Bag-e-lope, I do however recommend that you decorate the bag-e-lope before assembly.
1. Seal the envelope by licking the flap.

2. Using a scoring board or a ruler & embossing tool score 1" in from the two long sides & one short side.

3. Fold the scored lines a couple of times to make them flexible.
4. Trim off the top ( unscored ) by about 1cm to make the bag opening

5. On the bottom of the bag cut as shown & fold


6. Using wet glue or super sticky tape tape flaps together & then tape to the bottom of the Bag-e-lope.

7. Using the crop o dile hold together the top of the bag and punch 2 holes to thread the ribbon handle through.


 8. Use the real red gingham ribbon to make 2 handles, you need approximately 25cm for each handle.


The colours used in this project are 
Whisper white
Basful blue
Real red
Old olive
Pumpkin pie


The designer papers are Bashful blue

The next project of the night was a card using the Garden Whimsey set & the papers Sweet Pea from the current mini catalogue .
I have made a couple of variations, the inspiration for these came from fellow Demo Jenny Moors.


The evening was made complete by Alice & her legendary chocolate cupcakes that she makes for us when she's the hostess.

All of the above products are from Stampin' Up and are available to purchase through me as a Stampin' Up creative coach.


A lovely evening spent with fellow crafters & now i'm off to bed to try out the lovely new mattress that arrived this morning.
