Simple Seed Packets featuring Oh, So Succulent

Hello everyone and welcome back! As I have told you in the past, I'm really trying to include fun goodies in each of my Class To Go Kits. For my recent Greenhouse Garden Class, I needed to make a BUNCH of them, so I had to get creative. I searched for candy (that wouldn't melt in the heat of spring) and couldn't find anything! So, I had a burst of inspiration one night while laying in bed... Seed Packets! 
I ran to the dollar store and found Zinnias which are one of the flowers in the tutorial. I made simple sleeves to go over them in Calypso Coral. I made them 1/2" wider than the seed packet, in case you are wondering about measurements. It really depends on the measurement of your seed pack. It was a piece of cardstock, folded in half and stapled on the sides!! So easy! 

The tag is stamped in Calypso Coral and Basic Black. That sentiment is from a set I got at On Stage! It will be out in June... Stay tuned! 

 I didn't have enough of the Succulent Garden DSP for all the packets, but I also had some Calypso DSP from the subtles paper stack so I used that as well. 
Wouldn't these make great favors? Maybe for a garden wedding or shower? I just love the simplicity and ease in which it takes to make them!! I hope all the class recipients enjoyed the little surprise!! It gets tough in the warmer months finding things that won't melt while in transit... Seeds are a good choice! LOL! 

And here they are in the class packs. I love the way the look all packed up!

Cool Treats Class to Go
As summer nears and the temperatures heat up, the Cool Treats bundle becomes event more delicious! You will find so many ways to use the adorable ice cream and popsicle stamps this summer! I've created a band new Class To Go kit that includes six projects, each featuring the Cool Treats Bundle. Included are a gift bag, a gift card holder, two greeting cards, a lollipop  holder and a treat box. Each project is taught step by step though a full color PDF included in the class purchase.

When you choose this option, I am also throwing in a Fine Tip Glue Pen and a bolt of Thick Whisper White Baker's Twine for FREE! You will also receive the full PDF tutorial. 

Option #2- $33
This is the Class to Go Kit for those of you who already own the Cool Treats Bundle. You will need the stamps and framelits to create these projects, so only choose this option if you already own them.

All class kits and included product will be ordered and prepared together after the deadline. This is a preorder only and per SU policy, I do not have product on hand ready to ship. Because of this, it takes about 1 week after the deadline for me to order, cut, prepare and ship all the class kits.

Sweet Stampede Swap Bags for On Stage

Hello everyone! I still have more things to show you from On Stage! I was so excited about the gift I made for all my downline who were attending On Stage. I planned months ahead and was so excited to see them completed!

I ordered a bunch of these cute little bags from my friend Alexa who is a Thirty One Bags Rep. I have had a Little Carry All Caddy for years and it makes the perfect swap bag. I wanted to have some made with our team name on them. So cute, right??

So once I knew who all was going, I made special tags for each of their bags using their first initial. I used the Letters for You and the matching Framelits to create the letters. I cut several circles from the Layering Circle Framelits and the Stitched Shapes Framelits in Melon Mambo, Basic Grey and Watercolor Paper. I did a watercolor wash on the top watercolor paper circle. 

I added some Wink of Stella to each letter and then popped them on with Dimensionals. 

I tied each tag to the side with Melon Mambo 1/8" Ribbon. 

Swoon worthy if I do say so myself... :-) 

So, what was inside? Lots of stuff! Snacks, notebook, tissues, tic tacs... Just a survival bag of sorts! 

I love to spoil my downline. I wouldn't be the Demonstrator I am without every single on of them! If you are interested in joining my team, check out my Join page here.
