I’ve only just realised that I never got around to sharing the items I made for my Stampin’ Up in Oz Secret Sister for December – February.
As this swap started in December our main gift was sent then. My Secret Sister had told me (via her questionnaire) that her favourite SU colour was Bravo Burgundy. I like Bravo Burgundy myself but boy was I facing a dilemma. Stampin’ Up! have no current Designer Series Paper that has Bravo Burgundy in it. How on earth was I going to create something for her without DSP.
Then I remembered that in Stampin’ Up in Oz we don’t have to use only current items just so long as we use a majority Stampin’ Up! This is fantastic then for using up some retired items that you held onto because you liked and now don’t often use them. I’m sure many of you know what I mean?
Anyway I decided to go with the Recollections DSP pack which is actually Chocolate Chip, Cranberry Crisp and Mellow Moss but I hoped it was close enough to Bravo Burgundy, or at least headed in the right direction, for my Secret Sister.
This is what I created for her.
and then it was filled with all this
January’s requirement for the swap was 3 handmade items (1 could be a card) so come back tomorrow to see what I made and sent.
P.S We are taking sign ups for the next round of Secret Sister over on Stampin’ Up in Oz so why not go take a look at the group and if you’re interested join up so you can participate in the June – August Secret Sister round.
Till next time…..
