Peaceful Petals – Leadership Shoebox Swap

Today’s project is the second of my Swaps that I designed for last Wednesday’s Shoebox Swap at Leadership in Houston. I really liked the way this turned out and although I had originally planned on using Core’dinations Card Stock for the Scallops embossed layer I like the way this looked too. (If you haven’t tried our Core’dinations paper yet – check out this week’s Deal of the Week you’ll find our Neutrals collection.)

Peaceful Petals Leadership 2014

The ovals were from my Christmas Cards and since I had about 75 of these lying around and I figured it would be a great way to use them up. I don’t know about you but I tend not to throw anything away since I might find a use for them and have tried really hard this year to not have anything sit around for too long. My husband is already questioning all those left over rubber pieces, tag board from the DSP, and toilet paper rolls in my craft room – LOL.

The Peaceful Petals stamp set from the Occasions Catalog comes with some lovely line images that are great for water coloring. It also contains a couple of sentiments, which makes it a wonderful set to choose when you’re a newer stamper, since it can be used for all occasion cards and thank yous – something I’m always in need of, how about you?

Leadership Bags

One of the great things about Leadership or any Stampin’ Up! event is they way they pamper their Demonstrators. So I was so tickled this year when I checked in and receive my first Leadership bag made in our new color, Smoky Slate – and it’s stamped with a trendy chevron design. (I’m not sure that you can see the chevron design well in the picture.)

And how cool is the inside – stylish and lined beautifully with our Arrows pattern from the Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the Ocassions Catalog. Even the event is noted on the tag so I can always remember when I got the bag years from now.
