Fabulous Friends!

Hello and happy Monday! I had an amazing week-end and I am SO tired, but YET... creatively rejuvenated! I spent the week-end at a Scrap & Crop in Stratford, Ontario! My first scrap EVER! I went with 3 of my good friends and we had a blast!

While I was packing on Friday,
I realized...
"Wait a minute!
... I'm staying with my 3 friends
... at a hotel
... overnight
... O-Mi-Goodness!
I NEED to make pillow swaps!"

Yep! So there I was.. the day before the scrap, making pillow swaps, instead of packing and cleaning my house! You just gotta love crafting!

Here is the little package that I made for them. I had a lot of fun making these. The box is created from a 5" X 8-1/2" piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock. I shaped the top closure of my box with the awesome, new, Scallop Tag Topper Punch and added texture and dimension to the panels with the Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

My Whisper White tag is created with the Chalk Talk Framelits. (Love these!) The flower is from the stampset: Bright Blossom (Retiring Soon!), and is stamped in Strawberry Slush and Gumball Green (retiring) Ink. I topped it off with a Regal Candy Dot! I then stamped the word "friend", from the stamp set Fabulous Phrases (Retiring Soon!) in Bermuda Bay ink.

To finish off my tag, I cut a sliver off the edge of my Crushed Curry 3/4" Chevron Ribbon and tied it around my tag and then added a snippet of Strawberry Slush Ruffle Trim (Sold Out!) to the bottom. To close my box, I took the remainder of my chevron ribbon, cut off the other side and removed a few threads from either edges. I quite like how it looks!

Thanks for stopping by and check back tomorrow to see what was inside the box!
