Pillow Gifts...February 2014 Retreat

WHoo Hoo! I took a month off of blogging to get my act together everywhere. Let's see if it worked! I'm back and I'll do my best to stay focused on BALANCE. I may not have been blogging, but I have been stamping!

First up--the pillow gifts I created for the February 20-23 Lily Ink Pad Retreat at Over the River and Through the Hills Retreat in Lakewood. We had a great time and my attendees deserve the best! I created my usual gift bag full of goodies and got them done just in time, but forgot to get pictures! I did, however get pictures this week of some of what was in the bag!

Stamps: Petal Parade, Feel Goods, Yippee Skippee
Paper: Gold Fancy Foil Vellum Sheets,  Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper, Whisper White, Crisp Cantaloupe
Ink: Basic Black, Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party
Accessories: Gold Sequin Trim, Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack,  Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape, Decorative Labels Framelits, Chalk Talk Framelits, Cello Bags, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Simply Scored Board

I have (and still do) these kraft bags that I love to embellish. The gold vellum paper worked perfectly on it. I just used Washi Tape to adhere it, which added a bit of flair. They fell off over time, so I'd use an adhesive under it and then cover that with the Washi tape in the future. 

The notepad was just a mini composition book (or on some, I used a spiral notebook), that I made a cover for and decorated it up with the paper, a fun saying, and layers of fun! The pen has gold and kraft that I luckily found at the dollar spot. 

I don't want to overdo my comeback, so check out my Saturday post for how I created the tissue holder. 

Happy Stamping!
