I've made this for my Sister-in Law as a thank-you for letting us stay with her & her Husband for a holiday in the Cotswolds in a couple of weeks time.
We are really looking forward to it as it's such a beautiful area, Rachel & her husband Ben are a lovely couple & such fun. Our son (also called Ben) can't wait because he wants to go to Legoland!
The main item is a photo frame with matching notebook & an all important pen. I added sticky magnet strip to the back so she can always have it handy on the fridge. I then made another notebook & pen set for her handbag & finally I made a matching card.
I would recommend using one of the Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers as they are a lovely quality, heavyweight paper. You could colour co-ordinate with the recipient's kitchen, or use their favourite colours, I love it so much I'm going to have to make one for myself!
I used the following items for this project:
White box maker card (a thick, sturdy cardstock)
Stampin' Up! DSP - Tea Party (from the mini catalogue) & Cutie Pie (centre flower on the card)
Certainly Celery card
Sizzix Original die - Rectangle Frame
Curvy Verses stamp set
Certainly Celery ink
So Saffron Brad from the Rich Regals collection
So Saffron 5/8" grosgrain ribbon (part of this month's free ribbon bundle promotion)
Plenty of sticky strip!
Adhesive backed magnet strip (available from most good craft shops)
It might look complicated to make but trust me, it was easy! If anyone would like to have a home workshop where I show how to make this or any other of my projects, please contact me for details.
Thanks for looking!
