How are you? Hope you are doing well! Just got back from the grocery store. We were running low on things and I decided I would do a big shop and hopefully not have to go to the store again for a few weeks. I was pretty surprised how very few people were wearing masks or glove. I know I looked a little wild with my homemade mask and gardening gloves!
I haven't been spending much time in my stamp room lately. This is one of the reasons.
A couple of weeks ago I donated most of my fabric stash to neighbors that were making masks for medical personnel. I can sew a bit but knew they would be much faster and better at it. Now that there is a recommendation that we all wear masks I decided I needed to make some for my family. Fortunately I found some fabric in another area of my craft room. Does it look familiar to you? Yes, quite a while ago Stampin' Up!® sold fabric. I think they were fat quarters and are the perfect size to make masks. Once again Stampin' Up!® and my craft stash to the rescue!
I also made a bunch of tags to attach to goodies that were distributed to local hospitals, clinics in our area to thank medical personnel. These were quick and easy to make using the tag die from the Bonanza dies, some retired DSP, red hearts, and sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set.
Need an idea for a quick card? These are easy and cute too. White card base or make it even quicker, use the Note Card and Envelopes (20 cards and 20 envelopes for $7 and yes, they are mailable), strip of DSP or use the Buffalo Check stamp, sentiment, and a rose from the To A Wild Rose set. I added a few sequins and they are ready to be sent. Easy peasy!
Thanks for checking in and I hope to get in the stamp room later today so I will have something to share with you!
What a wonderful use of the StampinUp fabric.
So very of thoughtful.
