Yesterday, I spent the day with fellow A Muse stamp addicts from Massachusetts and New Hampshire for my second time. We met at Ink About It in Westford, MA. It was a fun-filled day with friends (new and old), laughs and lots of creativity and stamping going on for five hours. We did a shoebox project swap, where we bring the supplies for everyone to do your project and we pass them around the tables. I was lucky enough to get to make 22 out of 23 cards. All that creativity was inspiring.
I decided to do my project for Valentine’s Day and what’s Valentine’s Day without chocolate? So, I decided to do a Hershey’s chocolate bar candy wrapper for Valentine’s Day. What a fun, quick and easy gift to give to your friend, co-worker or neighbor. My sister did this at Christmas, so I “borrowed” her idea. Special thanks to Linda and Amy C. for coordinating another fun gathering of the New England A Muse addicts.
Supplies: A Muse stamps, sheer red ribbon and heart twinkle bling. I used stripped paper I got at Michael’s from GCD Studios and Red Carpet Bazzil Bling card stock, Art Institute ultra fine glitter (True Red, Hot Kiss) and Chalk Ink in Chestnut Brown. I cut the paper into 6″x6″ squares and trimmed 1/4″ off so that it would fit the candy bar and scored at 1 1/2″ and 4 1/4″ and used adhesive to close the wrapper. I used two heart punches for the tag.
I ended this wonderful, creative day with dinner in Boston with two very close friends. We couldn’t believe we finally were able to connect since we’ve tried for months to get all three of us together. It was wonderful food, great conversation, but most important was the time spent with friends. What a great way to spend a Sunday in January. How did you spend your Sunday and remember to do something creative this week.
