It's Fugue Friday and time for your variations on a theme.  Just one more week to stamp up those Valentine Projects!  I've got the cutest one for you here today.  Last Saturday, we had our group ShoeBox Swap, that means any demonstrator in my group can participate in a stamping day.  It's our version of a Potluck Stamp Camp.  It's a ton of fun.  One of the things I was most worried about when I was thinking about becoming a demonstrator was having enough ideas to share with my customers.  Trust me when I say, the ideas will be overwhelming and now you become more worried about what NOT to share!  And believe me when I say that I really don't come up with all the ideas on my own!  I think I will be able to use most of the swap projects in the next couple of months at classes, camps and workshops.  It's really not difficult to be a demonstrator!

So, here's project number one from Saturday.  I have a very talented downline, Vickie Monosa from Racine.   She's a fabulous stamper in so many ways but one of her specialties is 3D trinkety things.  We can count on her for the cutest little party favor ideas.  This is the project that Vickie brought for us to stamp.  It's a pull out gum wrapper.  You rewrap mini Dentyne Ice gum.  We've purchased them at the Dollar Store.  Right near the checkout in two packs for, obviously, a buck!

Can you imagine making these for your students birthday's, your grandkids, for whatever.  It's a cute, quick project

& Triffles – just a few notes

  • I punched the Whoo La La with the Word Window punch
    and used it to make a Mini Me Word Window Punch.  To see how this is done, make sure you

    Chocolate Chip, Vanilla, Sending Love DSP (love it!), Misc:  Round Tab Punch, Word Window Punch,

  • I found that regular adhesive wasn’t strong enough to
    attach the Round Tab.  Use the handy
    dandy Glue Dots for a super stick!
