"Girl Scout Week - RSVP Pens"

I love love love making these pens. This is the last item for the gift boxes. Tomorrow I will post the gift set all put together. The Girl Scout image is from the retired Close To My Heart stamp set Make New Friends and I colored them with SU Markers. Here are the directions on how to make the pens. I also made a step by step tutorial like 5 years ago on SCS Here is the link to that. The only thing I do different now is I buy tacky tape sheets instead of using the roll tape. I get the tacky tape sheets at Oriental Trading Company. You get 3 8 1/2 x 11 sheets for $4.95. It is a super deal. If you have any questions feel free to e-mail me.

"My New Stamp Room"

Well, we are finally all moved in and settled in Iowa. I absolutely love it here. The only thing I don't like is the humidity. I really miss my dry heat. I haven't done a whole lot of stamping since we moved in. My two youngest are in softball and that pretty much consumed most of my free time. The girls all have adjusted well here and they love their school. It's so different for them than when we were in Cali. They take a bus to school and home, they have hallways (indoor school) they have lockers and swings on the playground. They said that they are going to a school like they see on TV. They only went to school for 2 months before summer vacation but I did get a chance to make the teachers a little something and I also made something for the bus driver. I have to locate the pictures though, they are on my old laptop, then I will post them. I also made a gift set for each of the 12 girls on Sarah's softball team. I didn't make anything for Molly's team this year. I didn't have much time or enough paper. Oh well, her team will get them for sure in the spring. Thanks for sticking with me in my absence. I miss you all.

"Girl Scout Week- Gift Sets"

These are the completed gift sets for the Girl Scouts. I had so much fun making these for the girls. Molly passed them out on Tuesday and the girls loved them. The treat boxes were filled with two bag toppers, a peppermint sammich, gum holder, and RSVP pen. You can find the directions for the items from the previous posts from this week. Now I need another project. Maybe I will do some Valentine treats for the teachers. They do love to get gifts and I love making them.
