Rainy Day Creations

So have you noticed if your like me and our house when we refer to colors they are always in Stampin' Up terminology? Oh I saw the most beautiful Old Olive colored shirt today....LOL!
anyway, I was in Staples getting ink cartridges again!! I spotted them way across the aisle

the dry erase boards in Kiwi Kiss and Baha Breeze and the closer I got , YES! they were on CLEARANCE! $3.88. so today I was looking at them wondering what in the world I was going to do with them, I mean at that price and yes bcause they were Kiwi and Baha I had to have them.

anyone relate, like the dollar bin at Target. I have 8 totes of that kind if thinking.

Anyway, I had my rub-ons out and boy I started going to town. They glide on this surface like butter. No mistakes. I think they came out so cute. Great craft sale item. So go buy out your local Staples for $3.88 each and a package of Summer Love rub-ons you can't go wrong!

This is the Baha Breeze one, great for a Friend gift!

This is another one of the mix and match sentiment boxes.

"Over All "Mix & Match Note Card Gift Boxes

Check out this cool Walk in the Park Box (yes I do own other DP)
However, I have like 4 packs of this! So I am trying to use it up!

Here are a few Note Cards samples made with colored cardstock.

Accessories: Match Box die cut, scallop punch, summer love rub-ons, eyelet border punch

All of these cards will fit into this box and for an advanced card maker you can also add rub-ons to the kit so they embellish the cards a bit more.

This is an awesome gift for anyone. Below I have created a gift set you can mix and match the sentiments to fit whatever occasion. The box tutorial is from the new category on
the SU Demo website
Home > Show & Tell > Stamping Challenge Ideas. this is an awesome tool to find class planners with all the directions from beginning to end and also pictures! Great tool!

So yet another reason to take advantage of the
$75.00 scrapbook recruit promotion! Become a Serenity Stamper today!

I cased this one like the sample on the SU site but changed the DP, etc.

This is the bottom of the box it measures 8.5x8.5 and the top is 7.5x7.5
6 note cards/envelopes from page 157 in SU catty
Decorate with Designer paper, cardstock and then inside their box you put in several different pre-stamped sentiments and then they put a dimensionals on the back and stick it on! Boom their done, just lick the envelope and go! There is even enough room you could put a matching pentel pen with DP wrapped around the inside of the pen to make it coordinate and throw some postage in there as well.

Card samples of the basic layout.
You could use this one for a workshop and only do one project for
your experienced repeat hostesses and stampers! As a special treat!
It is affordable. Just mix and match your Designer papers keeping the same layout makes it super simple to pop these out. Also makes a great class or Stamp Camp project.

I would love to see your box!
