Hey everyone, hope you're having a great weekend. I'd like to thank you all so very much for your orders over the weekend. If you missed it, I have a big shop update and sale going on in my shop. You can read more about the new items in this post. Orders will begin shipping tomorrow.
How about a little sampling of some of the new products in my shop? My mother's birthday is tomorrow and she's one of those people that loves the packaging almost more than the present. So I fancied up this Bath & Body gift sack (big sale 50%-75% there right now, by the way) with some tissue paper flowers that Jordan made for me, some new stamps (Water Blooms) from Mama Elephant and some items from my shop. I used a new Large Special Delivery Tag for the base tag, stamped with flowers. Next I stamped and layered a Small Manila Parcel Tag. I finished up the layer with a Small White Tag stamped with "mom". I love just reaching for staple supply items like the basic tags. You can pretty them up so much with just stamps and a few embellishments like the enamel dots. I added some pretty sequins from the Rainbow Sequin Collection directly to the sack along with a few resin flowers from the upcoming July Gossamer Blue kits.
Also, I wanted to thank everyone who has purchased a kit and/or signed up for my Sweet Summertime class over at Gossamer Blue. The kits are now sold out but if you'd like to create your own kits, here's a helpful post I did about gathering your own supplies. You can still sign up for the class until July 10th. You'll get 4 weeks in July full of inspiration on how to create the banner + how to use the leftover supplies to create gift sacks, cards and tags. I'm looking forward to meeting some of you and chatting it up in class.
Okay, coming up this week I have a fun tutorial on how to use the Pan Pastels and Versamark ink pad from the Gossamer Blue June Color Kit. Plus I'll be sharing something fun using the new Hero Arts artsy stamps. The rest of the week will be spent partying it up with my "Sweet 16" Fourth of July Birthday Girl, Josey. We've got lots of swimming to do and Eric's itching to throw some slabs of meat on his Traeger smoker. And margaritas for me and my sister. Good times. Woot! Woot!
