May Project Parade ~ Day 5!!!!

Hi, it's Lynda! I hope you have been enjoying the AWESOME projects the Diva's have been showing you so far this week!! I sure have!!!

My daughter's birthday is in July and for the past few years, we have had a pool party here at the house for her. We keep it small so I thought it would be perfect to make some goody bags for the girls!

I bought the little canvas bags at Joann's. They are on clearance, 5 for $2.97! For this ensemble, I used the BRAND NEW Relax set, Happy Days and Dude set. I also used the clouds from the Up, Up & Away set. Speaking of Up, Up & Away, don't forget that this month's, Ready, SET, Stamp challenge is to use the Up, Up & Away set! All the details can be found HERE!!!


This will be the invitation. I did not complete the inside yet since I am not sure exactly what to put yet. The DP is from Pink Paislee's 365 Degree Collection. The first thing I did was to print the "You're invited" sentiment from my computer. I then added the Dude sentiment, using Soft Sky ink and then the flourish, using Pumpin Pie. The flowers were cut out and colored using Copics.

Here is a picture of the bag ~

For the bag, I sponged Ranger Frayed Burlap and Antique Linen inks. To get the rough edge, I just tore a scrap piece of CS, laid it where I wanted my "sand" to end and then sponged up to it. I added some Cinnamon Stickles on the "sand" by basically using a pin to dot the Stickles lightly all over the "sand". I then sponged Soft Sky ink for the water. The palm trees, clouds and sun were all stamped using Black Stazon. I colored using my Copics. When you color on fabric, don't go right up to the edges until you see how the ink will absorbe in to the fabric because it will run. DON'T ask me how I know this!!! LOLOLOL!!! I then added some Stickles to the sun and clouds.

Because I can't leave well enough alone, I made a little coordinating keychain using Polyshrink. I stamped the circle flourish from Happy Days on the Polyshrink using Olive Stazon. Stamped the flowers and "You're so" sentiment using Black Stazon and the "Cool" sentiment using Pumpkin Stazon. I cut the piece out and then heated it. Once it cooled I added some Stardust Stickles and tied it on a clip I got at Walmart.

Now it's your turn!!! As with all of our Project Parades, we’ve got some wonderful prizes...and there are two ways to win:

1. Play along with us and link up your new Sizzlin’ Summer Fun creation (posted May 17 or later) to the linky widget on Day One's parade post before midnight June 7th. One lucky stamper will win a $30.00 gift certificate to the Verve Store. Verve Stamps are not required, but we LOVE to see them if you have them!

2. For another chance to win, be sure to give the Divas a little shout-out in the comments section as we parade our Sizzlin’ Summer Fun creations. One lucky commenter during the course of the parade (May 17 ~ June 4) will win the Verve stamp set of their choosing!

We can't wait to see how you make your summer sizzle, so GO CREATE!!! :)
