Sweet Always gifts

July 3, 2009 | 2 comments

My last post showed you a gift box made using some of the Sweet Always DSP and some Fresh-Cut Notes that were decorated with various papers and today I’m going to show you a few more things I made with the Sweet Always DSP.

I also mentioned in the last post that the gift was an overdue present for a family member. (I sure hope she isn’t reading this…..) Anyway it’s actually a late Mother’s Day gift for my Step-mother. I was running a little late with getting something off to her but when I phoned on Mother’s Day to wish her a lovely day I was informed that they (my dad and step-mother) were off on a lovely 3 1/2 week holiday to Italy and some surrounding areas the following Friday. Well I meant to get something made and to her before they left but it didn’t happen. Of course I should have made sure it was done and off to her so it would arrive a few days after they got home. But no, that didn’t happen either. My step-mother is a lovely lady who totally understands how busy things can get and I’m sure will enjoy the package I sent her today. Finally.

So enough of an explanation, here are the rest of the items I’ve sent to her.

Firstly her late Mother’s Day card.

I’ve inked the heart from the ‘Always’ stamp set with Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip markers. The Happy Mother’s Day was stamped with versamark and embossed with White EP.

Next is a Paper Block Holder which is one of Makeesha Byl’s wonderful tutorials.

And the final item is a Post-It Note holder (originally from Makeesha but I’ve adapted it to fit the longer Post-It notes).

The verse is from the ‘Dreams Du Jour’ stamp set which has been inked using Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip markers. I’ve used my Nestabilities to frame this.

Post-It Note Holder inside

This is the inside with a decorated pen. I’ve used the same DSP as the front cover.

While my dad and step-mother were away it was actually my birthday. My step-mother being the lovely organised person she is made sure my card arrived on time (no slacker like me) and then about a week after they arrived home I received a note card and a lovely Lorenzo Venuti bracelet all the way from Murano Italy. My gift doesn’t seem to compare but I hope she likes them and can put them to use.
