Stampin'Up! Convention Make & Take - Part 1

So I got back from the convention on Sunday evening - what a great trip and all the new stuff that Stampin'Up! is bringing us this fall. I got some great ideas for card classes for the fall - Now I just have to find the time to make a class schedule :-)

Well - I think the schedule has to wait until I get back from my summer holidays - there is no time to produce it before

This was one of the kits we got at the Convention. It uses the chevron "Tag a Bag Gift Bags" (p.158) and inside there are 5 simple cards with envelopes.

We can make the Make & Takes at the convention, but I didn't have the time and I have found out that if it is a bag or a box, they usually get torn in the suitcase, so I decided to make them when I got home.

And that's what I did - all 5 projects in one evening!!!! (well... I was downloading new maps to my TomTom navigator and trust me - I was quicker than the TomTom!!!)

There is a little tag that has an Old Olive card stock banner, a Silver Glimmer Paper circle, a piece of Calypso Coral Chevron ribbon and a stamped sentiment from "Hello, Lovely" stamp set in Coastal Cabana. The bag is then tied closed with Bermuda Bay ribbon.

The cards are white Note Cards and Evenlopes (p.162) and stamped with the same "Hello, Lovely" stamp set.

The colours are Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Old Olive and I through in some Strawberry Slush on couple of the cards.
The cards are super simple, but that's the whole idea  - you really cannot make too elaborate cards if you make dozens of these as a Teacher gift or to a bigger groud :-)
Note the little rhinestones in each card!
