Before I was able to stamp tonight - I spent the afternoon teaching a class at The Papertree, in Manchester, NH which is about 1 hour from where I live in MA. Michelle is the owner up there (Hey Michelle!!) and she has the most wonderful stamping shop! I teach a class there about once a month and always do a lot of shopping before I leave!
Today we made a double pocket bag (tutorial here on Split Coast) and an apron recipe card holder (tutorial here on my blog) for holiday gift giving. We used several stamps from Just Rite Stampers and one from Amuse. I also gave everyone a packet of Swiss Miss Cocoa and 2 home made biscotti since that was the recipe they put on the card tucked into the apron. This apron can slip into the double pocket card - or it also fits in a regular size envelope for mailing.
I'll be posting my biscotti recipe tomorrow morning (12/1) with my H&M Stamps Creative Gift Wrapping blog hop - so be sure to check it out!
And a big shout out to Linda, Debbie, Lisa and Maddy my fun classmates today!
It was snowing in NH so that really put me in the holiday mood - unfortunately - it was just rain at home!
Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to come by and say hello!!
