The left is Charmed, one of my favorite sets to layer. I used that because it's not retired. However, all my giveaways are the sample on the right, a retired hostess set called A Slice Of Life. There are plenty of substitutes you can use from the new catalog, such as Morning Cup #120489 or Take A Sip #120323. I'm away from home and just using what I grabbed :)
Here's a closer look...
How do you like those adorable mini clothespins? Too cute! Theyre plenty affordable too, $2.95 for 24. Item #112942 if you're interested! The DSP is new and beautiful, it's called Pocketful of Posies. I love anything with brown!
I was inspired by a sample I saw on SplitCoastStampers, from addinkandstamp's blog, it was a Christmas theme. If you'd like to make your own, here are the approximate measurements:
Cut cardstock 7" x 5-1/2", makes 2 per sheet of 8.5 x 11.
Fold in 1/2 lengthwise, adhere side and bottom.
Cut bottom DSP 3-1/2" x 6", punch bottom with a scallop punch
Cut top DSP layer at 2-7/8 x 6", layer and adhere to pouch.
Use another 1" x 6" of coordinating DSP to make a paper ribbon. Attach with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Next, make your focal point. Any stamps & any circles will do!
Add your little embellishments, these are Tiny Tags.
Have a blessed & creative day! Erika. www.erikaclark.stampinup.net
