Edward's Cocoa

this is a cocoa packet holder for my december design team at Serendipity(19 s main st, henderson, ky).

i used A Muse stamps: Edward the snowman, and snowflake.

the white and dark blue snowflakes are by Creative Impressions. i also used a snowflake brad. (edited to add, thanks Kim)

i used Debbie Olson's template. her original can be found on her blog, thinking inking.

on the strap around the holder, edward is on black chipboard.
don't you love how i highlighted the cocoa, so that you can see that it is "artificially flavored"? (roll eyes here)

on the inside of the holder, it is snowing, see the glittery snowflakes?
Stamps: A Muse: Edward, snowflake, let it snow.
Paper: PTI white cardstock, A Muse blue polka dot, black chipboard, black glitter paper, white glitter paper (all can be found at Serendipity)

Holly's 2nd Tote

this one is holly's other tote. i love the green stripe.
the lining has the greens and browns that match perfectly to the outside.
i resized the inside pocket to hold pens or something slim like sunglasses.

and i just had to do the faux piping again. it turned out just the way i wanted.

Serendipity Tote

this is a special tote that i made for a giveaway for Serendipity, 19 s main st, Henderson KY.
Serendipity is having a Cupcake Social on Dec 6, 2008.
michelle will be teaching copic markers, i will be teaching a class at 2:00 that features this cupcake set. and kim will have all sorts of cupcakes to eat too.
this tote will be given away and will be filled with all sorts of scrapbooking supplies.

i did the faux piping again. i know i have said this before, but i love it.
and here is holly's tote next to this tote. i can't decide which i like better. they are both favorites.

Holly's Tote

this is for holly. we went shopping at joann's fabrics and this is what we picked out. i love the black and white print. and the pinks look so good. but the colors didn't come out to well in the pics.
i did the faux piping again. i just love this part.

and here is a better pic of the lining. it reminds me of really cool polka dots, only not.

Edward Snowman

here is my happy snowman, edward. i would like to also get donald, so they can keep each other company. i am getting a little a head on my december design team entry for Serendipity.
these snowmen make me smile.
both of these papers remind me of snow, what with all the glitter. the black looks like a night sky with snow to me. and the silver snowflakes are brads.

ok, here is the same pic tilted. i have been seeing other people's blogs with all of their pics tilted one way or the other. i like some, but i think i would rather see a straight pic. i am trying to decide if i like it or not.
what do you think? tilt or no, or sometimes.

this is part of my design team admission for Serendipity(19 s main, henderson, ky). i thought this would be a cool gift(maybe for a wedding shower). this is the card to go with the cookbook.
there are 6 different little pics on the corners of the recipe cards.

i love the buttons. i attached them with embroidery thread.

i used black chipboard for the front and back covers. it is sturdy enough to stand up on its own. i love that it can stand on the counter while you are cooking.

this is the inside of the front cover.

and this is the inside of the back cover.

the paper is all doublesided. it is Bon Appetit by teresa collins. i love the plastic sleeves for the recipe cards too. that way you can wipe the spills or splashes off of them.

Debbie's Tote

this tote is for a customer from the henderson art's & crafts fair. you are probably thinking this tote looks familiar, but it is a little different. it has a new lining that i am in love with. i also have learned a couple new techniques, and i experimented with this one. for one, it has the fleece interfacing in the handles too, which i wish i would have put in all of my previous totes. sorry, girls. i guess you will have to wear out your totes to get a new and improved one.

another new thing is the faux piping. i have been reading sewing blogs now. and got the idea from this blog, blissful. she has absolutely beautiful totes. check out these weekender totes. i love them. she also shares great ideas.

Mom's Grocery Totes

when i went to joann's fabric store, i saw this fabric, and it screamed mom's name. so i just had to buy it. it is a zebra print in brown.
