Stampin Up just had their convention last …..and you know, I didn't go …but I did have a Convention Buddie, Lucia. A convention buddy takes notes and pictures for you as well as the SHOPPING….And She did an awesome job …she was able to get everything on my list …plus a gift or two …..I can't thank her enough….
So last night … we met up for our monthly get together…..So to say THANK YOU !!! For doing an awesome job…I made her these little gifts….
I first covered a ugly little bank, that I picked up in Italy…just for this purpose…to be covered …Anyway, the bank is to remind her to save her pennies so we can go together next year, and a mini notebook to keep track of all the change she collects…..
** Here's a fun fact… Did you know that if you filled a 16 oz plastic water bottle with only dimes, when it is full you will have $300.oo … wow…so I'll I need to to is fill 2 of those and my plane ticket will be paid for next year..**
Ok … Lucia's favorite Designer Series Paper is Paisley Petals and her favorite color is cherry cobbler …so of course I had to use that to cover the bank and make the notebook….The flower stamped Images, are from the New Button Buddies set….. I just Love this set ….Next week …I will be featuring this set …..
Well I'm so ready for the weekend …TGIF…..As always if you have any questions or comment email me at Sherry@sherrystampinbella.com or if you would like to purchase anything, I have showed you … that email works for that too….
I am so excited today, I knew when I saw this Specialty Designer Series Paper , Morning Mocha, that it was going to be at the top of my ' Must haves" from the new Idea Book &Catalog. Ok Well I'm a coffee freak and I keep wanting to call the paper Morning Mocha latte…lol
Here is the first thing I made with the gorgeous paper
Check out that Purse !!!!!!!! Way Cool …..Now let me show you the paper real quick …..
These two sheets are FLOCKED…so the designs are raised and almost feel like velvet…It reminds me of wall paper from years and years ago….The Espresso Print, It the same design from the Stamp Set Elements of Style, one of my Favorites …..
Look at all these rich tones…it would make for some elegant and regal scrapbook pages ….not to mention that you could get a very formal masculine card or scrapbook page…For our Kings, Princes and Knights in Shining Armour…..
Ok … back to the project …..
I wish I could have a real purse that looked like this….
As soon as I saw this specialty Designer Series Paper … I knew that this project was in the bag…sorry bad pun …
I used Basic Black for the trim but I think the next one I'm going to uses Early Espresso. I used the Antique Brads to re-enforce the handles ….
Don't you just love it, when you surprise your self on how cute something came out…
I have to admit I can't remember where I got the pattern for this purse… I'm not that creative…..to design the pattern myself … but I can sure follow a pattern …So I have to give thanks and credit to whoever took the time and effort in creating it …..
Now on to the 3×3 note cards that fit inside this little gem…..
I used the Coordinating Stamp from Elements of Style to create the background Images …I also used the sentiment and flourish stamp from the Stamp set Kindness Matters…This is going to be one of my new Favorite stamp sets ….and of course I finished the card of with a little vintage trinket … a tiny brad that looks like a button ….
Here Again … Same elements ,,, just switching the color up to Cherry Cobbler
This note card has to be my Favorite….
I decided AFTER I sponged the edges of the sentiment Kindness Matters…that I wanted to use Pearl Smooch Spritz….I know it really doesn't show up in photos…such a bummer….anyway…when I spritzed it …the ink where I sponges started to bleed just a little bit… and created the coolest … pink-y Brown pearl effect…..you really have to see this card in real life…all pearly and shimmery…..As I said before, sometimes I surprise myself….lol
well Today was a long post …. I will let you get on with your day…

I'm really loving this years New In Colors,…Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade,Wisteria Wonder, and Island Indigo..It was funny… when I first saw them … I wasn't that thrilled … and now I keep finding my self reaching for them and the best part about the In Colors is they are around for 2 years…and they coordinate with last years In Colors to create the new Vibrant Color Palette….
The Blues on this Decorated Notebook are Island Indigo and Pool Party ….Now the designer Series Paper was from the Occasions Mini catty and is now retired but It is funny how the new 2011 In colors Match that paper … I was like a sneak peak that we didn't realize back then …lol
