Tomorrow I am spending the day in Hamilton at a Stampin' Up! Regional Training Seminar. Last month I went to the Seminar in Auckland but I have some team members in Hamilton and Tauranga so have decided to go with them to it. Actually I am now doing a presentation there now too! lol
So for the ladies on my team (and my car mates for the trip down) I have made these long pillow boxes. They are made out of acetate and most of them are embossed with our Big Shot Embossing folders - I used EVERY embossing folder that we have and they all gave different results. You can stamp on acetate too with Stazon ink - Stampin' Up! sell black and white. With the white you can make coloured Stazon but that will be another post another time! lol
Back to the boxes - I filled these with pineapple lumps - so yummy!! I believe chocolate pineapple lumps are a very New Zealand lollie (candy) so if you aren't in New Zealand and have never tried them you don't know what you are missing!!!!!!! I tied some of the wide stripped ribbon around them with a bit of twine and added the stamped image. To get the stamped image I used a marker pen to ink up just the outline of the stamp from 'Eat Chocolate' as I didn't want the words that were inside the actual stamp. Once I stamped the out line then I inked up the 'so much CHOCOLATE so little time' stamp and placed it within the frame (using my Stampin'-ma-gig) and then punched it out with the new label punch. These items are all new in the Autumn/Winter mini catalogue so if you would like to have some these beautiful products email me email@example.com to find out how. If you host a workshop you might be able to get some for FREE!!
