You may recall, that is if you have been reading my blog for a little while, that a few months back I was participating in my 3rd Round of Secret Sister in ESAD. I was very spoilt by my Secret Sister and I’m pretty sure the demo I sent to was happy with her gifts also but sometimes these swaps don’t always go according to plans. Be it life, unexpected illness or some other unexpected event, sometimes people don’t meet their commitments. This unfortunately was the case with some demonstrators and therefore their partners did not received all they were entitled to. The lovely organiser of the group therefore called on some other players to become Angel Sisters. I was happy to offer to send an extra gift to one of these ladies and today I’m going to share what I sent.
In her questionnaire she listed that she liked the stamp set “A Rose is a Rose” so I decide to use it before it retires. I teamed it with the Bella Rose DSP and coordinating cardstock, ribbon & ink colours.
Here’s the whole set (and I must apologise in advance for the photos as I forgot to snap some at home before going off to mail them so rather than come back and go out again I took them in the car on my phone…..lo)
Unfortunately you won’t be able to tell in any of the pictures but all the large roses and leaves have Dazzling Diamonds glitter in highlighted areas too.
First up I made the little ‘Tucked Away’ box from Timeless Templates.
Inside this box I placed a 1/2 dozen or so 2m lengths of some Stampin’ Up ribbons.
Next up I made a Chocolate Slider.
This of course contains a family sized Kit Kat chocolate bar.
The next item I made was the gift box.
Inside the gift box I packed a lot of consumable items – Stampin’ Dimensionals, snail refill, hemp twine, linen thread, brads, sanding blocks and sticky strip. I think these always come in handy and is usually what I always list on my questionnaires. I hope the recipient feels the same way.
And last of all came the card.
I was really happy with the end results and so hope the recipient enjoyed them too.
Till next time….
