Inspire. Create. Share. 2014

As you are reading this I am on my way to sunny Salt Lake City for Stampin' Up!'s annual convention.  I am so excited to be on a road trip with some good friends and so excited to see my friends from across North America that I don't get to see very often!

One of the things I do every convention is make a little gift for my downline that are attending.  This year I spoiled them!

They each got a little package with a notebook and pen, altered first aid kit, bag tag and a little jar of goodies to snack on!

The notebook is covered with Flashback DSP and some Hello Honey ribbon.  I stamped "creative" along the ribbon...that creative is from a special convention set I got a couple years ago!  You can see how I altered the notebook here.  The pen is an RSVP pen that I rolled some DSP (again, the Flashback DSP) up into the barrel.  I love doing this with my pens...it's an easy way to make cute pens and then I know when people steal my pens because they are unique!!!!

The tags were cut from DSP (Flashback) covered chipboard.  I used the new Bigz die Party Pennants.  I love that the pennants come in 2 sizes on this die!  It's embellished with some punched pieces (colors from the Flashback DSP....Pool Party, Real Red, Hello Honey) and then each one has their initial on it.  I used the Perfect Print Alphabet Bigz die for that.  It's finished off with a piece of Hello Honey ribbon so they can tie it to their bags.  And, they now have a cute way to distinguish their bags in the sea of 3000 bags that are all the same!

I found these super cute little travel first aid kits when I was getting groceries at Superstore one day!  They come in a white plastic container and have all the essentials for minor first aid stuff like paper cuts and blisters (the most common convention injuries!).  The container was easy to alter with some more Flashback DSP and then a belly band made from cardstock.  The belly band was made with the Angled Tag Topper punch and tied shut with some of the new cotton ribbon in Real Red.  We're gonna have the cutest first aid kits around!

And, of course they needed some treats!  I got these cute little jars from someone selling leftover wedding favor stuff and they are perfect for this sort of thing.  I filled them with some gummies and then added a DSP (Flashback) circle to the lid.  It's finished off with a piece of cotton ribbon, this time in Pool Party.

And, here it is all packaged up cute and ready for them to get....

Don't you just love it?!?!?!  Everything but the notebook fit in these cute little plastic berry containers I also found on my Superstore grocery shopping trip!  Because the notebook didn't fit, I placed the berry container on top of the notebook and tied the two together with some of the awesome new Crushed Curry Striped Grosgrain.

Now that you've seen a lot of the patterns from the Flashback DSP pack, make it one of the ones you get this month with the sale!  DSP is buy 3 get 1 free for the month of July and with so many gorgeous DSP's to choose from you may even want to get them all...you know, buy 6 get 2 free or buy 9 and get 3 free!!!!
