Welcome to the Summer Holidays and this month’s Stampin’ Creative theme of ‘Cool for Kits’ a theme where we wanted to showcase just how Cool our kits really are.
If you’ve hopped over from the lovely Caroline’s blog, you’ll have already been spoilt to some fantastic inspiration and if you’ve started the hop here, then welcome and enjoy!
We have so many wonderful Kits available in the current catalogue, with my all time favourite still being Watercolor Wishes, which is an all inclusive kit and ideal for a gift or for a newcomer. I’ve been known to take one of these kits Glamping before now …
Why am I not showcasing this amazing set? … well, for me, the gorgeous Perfectly Wrapped Kit lent itself to the project I had in mind for sharing with you this month.
This kit is just gorgeous and creates no less than 16 different gift packages (4 designs and 4 of each). You need to purchase the coordinating stamp set to complete it, but you can see here, that’s its a very usable stamp set for other projects.
I was recently delighted to have been enlisted by the parents of our son’s fellow class mates to come up with some pretty presentation for the combined gift we had purchased for their teacher gifts. The stand out flowers, just look so special that I just had to use them.
Having purchased a fabulous experience voucher for each teacher that came simply packaged in a square white box, my job seemed easy.
To coordinate with the joint gift, I decided to use the box bases that come in the kit to hold a gusseted cello bag of yummy hand selected chocolates as our personal gift to the teachers from our son. The flowers to the front of these boxes were made using the same colour cardstock and various punches.
I’m often drawn to the stamp sets that coordinate with our kits, as you’d ve surprised at just how much you can create with them, aside from making up the kit that it’s suggested for.
I hope you’ll hop over to see what delights Eimear has in store for you, but thanks for stopping by.
