Happy Camper Roommate Gifts

When you go to a Stampin’ Up! event and you share a room with your friends (those you already know or perhaps those you are meeting for the first time) it is fun to have a little gift to share.  Now that we are here and convention has started I wanted to show you the roommate gifts I created this year.

I wasn’t really sure what to do to begin with but ultimately decided to do a “Happy Camper” theme.  I wanted to make a camper box and fill it with goodies that we might need through out the week.  To create the camper I pulled out my e-cutter and some card stock and started cutting out pieces from a camper file that I downloaded.  I made a few changes from the original design because I was trying to create something close to some cute little camper nail files.


I decided to use our big 6×6 Kraft box and glue the cut & pieced camper to it.  And then fill it with good stuff.


happy-camper2I had recently traveled to San Francisco to visit Kyle and we went to the Facebook HQ and also to Ghirardelli square – so I wanted items from both of those places included – I found turquoise FB sunglasses for them!


There are also some snacks in there and lotion and I even found glow rings – I think we should wear those to the Awards night party – then I’ll be able to find them (I think) in the crowd or on the dance floor.  I hope they like and will be happy campers all week long!

Here is a list of the Stampin’ Up! products that I used:



Lots of Stars!

Here is another Make&Take project from the Stamp, Scrap & Create Retreat.  This one was designed by Cindy and uses an e-cutter to cut the stars out of the Designer Paper and also the words

.  We created both a card and a 12×12 scrapbook page using the same basic layout and the same elements.



The gold sequins add a little sprinkle of gold throughout each project.
