Animal Expedition Suite for Facebook Live

Hello and Happy Friday! I wanted to share the projects I made for my Facebook Live today. I have had the Animal Outings stamp set since Stampin’ Up’s On Stage event back in April. I decided that it was finally time to ink it up. There are so many fun products in this suite, like the Leaf Ribbon, the wooden Frames Elements and especially that cute Designer Series Paper. Select Designer Series Paper packs are Buy 3 Get One Free in July, too. So if you want to stock up, now is a great time. 

By the way, there is a link the the end of this blog post with a PDF file which has all of the measurements for the projects along with a supply list.

My first project was a little 3-D “matchbook-style” holder for a bag of gum. It’s super simple to create and is a great way to decorate a little treat. Isn’t that sentiment so cute bit that chubby rhino?
When I ordered this Designer Series Paper, I immediately fell in love with the little crocodiles. All I could think of was to create a project around his little “pearly whites."
So, I created a box to hold a toothbrush and a coordinating wrap for a tube of toothpaste. I thought these could be fun for party favors for the kiddos, although I’m not sure the kiddos would be as excited about them. It’s a way better choice than candy, right? 
Finally, I shared a card that showed how to use the “mirror image stamping technique” using the Stamparatus tool. It’s a great way to get more mileage out of your stamp sets and I just love these little giraffe buddies. I hope you do as well. :)

All of the products I used to create the projects will be listed on the sheets, along with the measurements. 

Also, if you put in an order in my online store ($30 minimum) by Monday July 16th, 2018 at midnight, I will send you these three make and takes for free! You will receive all of the supplies to create the projects but it will NOT include any stamped images (per Stampin’ Up! policy).  

Please use Hostess Code 2P9VFERN 

That’s how I will know that you ordered and will make sure that you get your make and takes. ($30 minimum)
If your order is over $150, please DO NOT use the Hostess Code, so that you can earn the Hostess Rewards. I will still send you the make and takes, along with an extra gift. 

Remember, orders must be placed by Monday July 16th, 2018 at midnight for these make and takes. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed these projects. Remember that I’ll be back on Facebook Live next Thursday July 19th at 2:30pm CST, so be sure to join me then. Until next time...

Have a HAPPY day! 
-Anne Marie
