Stampin' Up! Convention 2013 Make and Takes

This year we had several Make and Takes at Convention.  I was so busy trying to do everything else that I did not get around to making them while I was in Salt Lake City.  So, now that I am home I thought I would put them together.

The first project is a bag of simple notecards.  All these cards have one stamp and a rhinestone to make them all a matching set.

Sometimes a Wow! can come from something as simple as stamping off.  Simply ink your stamp once and then stamp it several times so that each image gets lighter and lighter.

Turning a stamp different directions can also make an interesting focal point for a card.

As can repeating an image in multiple colors.  These images have also been repeated on the envelopes to make a matching set.

The final card in the collection is a simple sentiment that has been stepped up with a little sparkle.

Another project that was offered used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, which I am very excited to start playing with.  I love the background options that this stamp set offers.  Several of the stamps were used here to make the "dirty" background.

The final project is turning the Tag A Bag Gift Bag into a gusseted bag.  By scoring each side at 1" and the bottom at 1-1/4" you can turn a flat bag into one with some width.  The Tag A Bag Accessories Kit is perfect for decorating it.

All of these projects were easy to assemble, but still offered a real wow factor.  Making these goodies did make me happy.  Which one do you like the best?
