Apron of Love

A couple of months ago I started a new position at work. This meant meeting and working with a whole bunch of new people. This was both exciting and a little bit daunting!
Anyway, I decided to carry on my tradition of making something special for my new people on their birthdays cause that's what I like to do. I decided instead of a card, I would make them a little treat of some kind. I gathered all their birthdays, favourite colours and hobbies and of course their favourite treats so that I could make it a little more personable.
Today's birthday girl loves to bake, and oh my goodness, she is so good at it too!
This is the treat box I came up with for her. I used the stamp set 'Apron of Love' and the coordinating dies. I bet you can guess that she loves the colour purple too right?!
I left this on her desk today so she can find it tomorrow.

Wild About You! - Shadow Box Card and Clipboard

 'Animal Outing' was one of the stamp sets I knew I just HAD to get when I first skimmed the Stampin' Up! 2018 Annual Catalog.
It is just too darn cute. There is a totally adorbs Kangaroo with a Koala in it's pouch too that I am yet to play with.

I decided to create a Shadow Box card. Here is my Tutorial if you would like to make one yourself. I love anything 3D and this set worked so well for creating a little scene. The set also has coordinating dies which is where the branches came from.

 In this photo, you can see the box inlay part of the card which is 1/2" thick. The card fits perfectly into Stampin' Up!'s acetate boxes for mailing or just to protect them. I would probably use a small bubble wrap envelope too if you are planning to mail one.
Do you see this totally adorbs Designer Series Paper right now? Oh Em Gee. It's the cutest!
I found some really inexpensive MDF clipboards from Walmart and decided to cover them with some DSP. It's also a good way to use up leftover paper you don't know what else to do with.
I had purchased the notepads in bulk from Costco ages ago and was happy to put them to good use.
They can also easily be mailed in a bubblewrap envelope. My customer's received one as a thank you gift for purchasing from me last month.
