I recently attended a Tickled Pink Party held by one of my Sherindipity Stamper’s, Erika Clark. Erika is such a wonderful hostess and supplied us with great make & take projects and her yummy Ziti was to die for. She also had plenty of pink snacks on hand. Our swaps had to have pink incorporated somehow. Here is mine:
I will post the other attendees’ swaps and all the cute gifts we received from Erika on another day. You will definitely be impressed – everyone had such beautiful projects. But first let me tell you alittle about mine. I made the wrap using Pretty in Pink CS and the measurements for the main piece are 4″x12″ with scorings at 3″, 7″ and 8″. The scoring at 3″ will be the front flap of your project and I embossed that flap using the new Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folder which gave it that cute little scallop edging. Punched a trim using Island Indigo CS and the Scallop Trim Border Punch. I adhered the trim to the back of the front flap and Sticky Stripped it down closing my wrap. I adhered a strip of the new Twitterpatted Designer Series Paper to the top and ran a length of the new Blushing Bride pleated satin ribbon across it. Stamped my images using the Take it to Heart Stamp set. The same one I used on yesterday’s project. Hearts were punched out with the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies and the Heart Punch. Added some bling with the new 8 mm Large Pearl Basic Jewels and a Blushing Bride Designer Button from the Twitterpated collection. Forever and Always is from the new Loving Thoughts stamp set and I received the stamp set as part of my Leadership package.
I filled my swaps with Rice Krispie heart treats that I made with my grandson, Andrew. We had fun making them, and as you can see he wanted to be completely hands on in the cooking process. We also cut out the centers and added one of the yummy gummy heart candies from yesterday’s project. Sorry I didn’t get a final pic, but we had to get them into the cello bags before they dried out. I used SU’s flat medium cello bags and they fit perfectly.
I can’t wait to cook in the kitchen with my other grandson, Owen, too but it will be alittle while yet. Andrew will be 3 in March and I am so impressed with how smart he is already. Whenever we say goodbye to each other, we always say I love you and then we say Forever and Ever! His sounds sorta like this: I love you Mimi! And then he says Foreva and eva! Melts my heart every time.
Love that kid and his smile!
Sorry about the sugar tasting Mommy! But we couldn’t resist.
He showed me some love in the pic with his cookie cutter! Isn’t he just adorable! I Heart him back. He actually even helped me with my swap applying dimensionals to the backs of the hearts.
On our way home from the party, I took a pic in the town of St. Michaels – I found out the residents could purchase a heart for a $50 donation to a local charity and then they got to display their hearts on the telephone poles in town displaying their love to the world! What a great idea!
I also passed by a cute little candy store – do you think they may be wishing for snow on Valentine’s Day?
