Faves Farewell

Hello and welcome!  This is the first blog hop I've been involved in.  Woohooo!
The month of May is birthday month in my house, so I reached for some fantastic Stampin' Up! products to make one of my son's party bags for him and his friends.  The products I have used that are in the Retiring Specials are:
Birthday Surprise Stamp Set 
Polka Dot Tag a Bag Gift Bags
Tag a Bag Accessory Kit
Artisan Label Punch
The retiring products are only available while stocks last. 
Come and see.....

The stamp set is a new one for me.  I was lucky enough to win it from Susan Wong.  Thanks again Susan! :)  It is certainly a set that I overlooked in the catalogue. 

The aqua coloured ink is a Color Box chalk ink from the Occasions catalogue.   

I have made the tags from Chalk Board and have used the chalk writer pen.  They really look like mini blackboards IRL.

Now hop on over to Kathryn's blog and be inspired by her creations!

  1. Awesome bags Sally I nearly got that set sooo many times but never did. Simple but very effective project

  2. Love the simplicity but effectiveness of your project! Thanks for sharing :)

  3. Great bags - I am sure your son loved them. Those chalkboard labels look great and are ideal for the boys!

  4. These are very cool Sally, I will be sad to see that Birthday set go, as well as the chalk inks and chalk board. Great job!!

  5. Thanks so much for sharing Sally.
    Love all the layering you did with the punches and different coloured cardstock.
    Never thought to use the Color Box Chalk Ink Pads on anything other than the Chalk Board Cardstock, so will be giving this a go :-D

  6. I love the chalk board cardstock so have stocked up on that. These bags have been my go to bag and love what you have done here Sally!

  7. Love how you've stamped on the bags to jazz them up and your little chalkboard labels are very cute. Great job on your first hop - I hope you can join us for future ones.
