Stamp Club for February

Hello everyone!  Thought I'd like to show you a couple of the things we made today with our Stamp Club

Sour Cream Valentines Container

This looks nothing like MY sour cream containers, but apparently they used to be served like this somewhere - not sure where!  A very easy & cute little project, filled with chocolate of course!     Stamp Club 015

1. Start with a piece of cardstock measuring 12cm X12cm.  Decorate with stamps - I used Loads of Love on So Saffron Cardstock.
2.  Add sticky tape to one side (doesn't matter which side -- it's square so pick any side) -- and roll it up and stick it together.  It will look like a toilet paper roll.
3.  Seal one end of your roll with sticky tape.  Add your goodies into the container.  This is important.   Unless you plan on giving someone you love (or hate) a container full of nothing, this step is crucial. 
4.   Close up the other end of your container, but seal it crosswise from the way you sealed the other end.  This is how you get the "twisted"  look of the sour cream containers you get in restaurants.
5.  Then just make a little matching tag and you have a cute gift!   IMPORTANT STEP : EAT THE REMAINDER OF THE CHOCOLATES YOU'VE GOT LEFT FROM FILLILNG ONE OF THESE LITTLE GIFTS.   THIS WILL REMIND YOU HOW MUCH FUN STAMPING CAN BE!!

Criss Cross Card - Friendship Blooms (Sale-A-Bration FREE Set)

This card was inspired completely by Carolina - a very talented woman! http://creativepad.typepad.com/ Stamp Club Feb 08 (2)

Remember - if you would like to join us and make some of these projects at our Stamp club next month, there is space available on the second Monday night of the month only, at 7.30pm.  Commitment of $35 purchase per month.

ALSO - My Easter Class is now full, so if you're looking at other classes for the next couple of weeks, please let me know early, so you don't miss out.   It's 10pm, and I was going to get an early night, so goodnight - I'm done!

Thanks for the class today, Michelle. Had a great time, and thanks for getting Baylee from school.

here in the US when you go to certain restaurants, when you order a baked potato the sour cream will come in a pouch like that, I think for sanitation reasons. But if I go to the grocery store the sour cream comes in tubs. >"<
Your criss cross card turned out great!
