I hate to admit this but I just pulled out my Stampin' Up 2013 Convention Make'n Takes (from July) to stamp.  I'm sure many of my fellow demonstrators have posted pictures, but to be honest, I had not seen any so I had no idea we were given so many projects and how awesome they were.  I loved all of them so much that I have to share, just in case you haven't seen them yet.  I also made 20 Project H.O.P.E. cards as I never seem to have the "right" card when I need it.  So this card is very generic and can be used for all types of situations.  What do you think:

I used a card I received from Lacie Latimore for this layout.  I love the new Wetlands Stamp Set and how generic this card turned out.  So simple, just stamp and add a little bit of sponging.

Here are the make'n takes from Stampin' Up Convention:

Five note cards and envelopes that go into the Tag a Bag Gift Bag below.  My favorite is the ampersand.

Decorated Tag a Bag to hold the note cards above.
How many ways can I say, "I LOVE GRUNGE!!!"  My very favorite make'n take -- don't you just love the colors!

Another darling gift bag -- perfect to use for birthday party favors.

And a final packaging idea:  Tag a Bag Gift Boxes.  These are so cute in person -- perfect to hold cookies or beauty products.  So many ideas for packaging gifts and very sturdy.

I don't have room to post all of the make'n takes, but I hope you like my take on the above projects.

Until next time,

"Through love serve one another."  --  Galatians 5:13


  1. Love them all Sandi!! especially the wetlands and grunge cards!!

  2. I love how your "Wetlands" card turned out. I too love the stamp set. It may because I love scenery and the beach. You may be persuading me to get the grunge stamp set. I like the effect it makes. So cool!
