Daddy's Day project

I am not very good at masculine projects... but I think this project turned out cute and manly. I love Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip and Sahara Sand together. Once I fugured out the colors and what I wanted to do it all came together. The Good Morning Sunshine dsp worked great, there is a bit on the top of the box and also as layers on the card and gift card holder. Seeing Spots is the stamp set along with All Holidays. I used the Stamping Success online extras template for the box. It's way cuter in person. Inside is a cello bag filled with candy. LOVE the grommets - the Sahara Sand ones were perfect and I added Sahara Sand eyelets. It's finished off with Chocolate Chip ribbon: 1/4 grosgrain and double stitched. Hope my dad likes it! Here's a photo of him...

My dad is Alvin and he lives in Amarillo, that's about 2,000 miles away. So I don't get to see him very often. My brothers live in Texas as well. Not being close to family is my only regret about living in the Northwest. We do gab on the phone fairly often so that almost makes up for it.

If you were planning on joining SU as a demonstrator with the fabulous deal they have going, now's the time. Offer ends on Sunday. Other specials ending on Sunday as well... See them all on my Web page!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

  1. Desiree, I love this project with the three coordinated pieces that we made in class! In fact, I can't wait to give to my DH for Father's Day. ~~ Shawna
