A Little Late

I was super inspired by a project that Shelli Gardner included in her stamp presentation back at Convention over a year ago.  I am a little late and it's been a long time since summer 2014, but I finally had the perfect opportunity to incorporate her project in one of my stamp events.  Not too long ago I had a customer appreciation party where we stamped several gorgeous projects all inspired by Shelli's "Choose Happiness" journal (scroll down a few pics).
Since it was a customer appreciation party I bundled everyone's supplies in a GORGEOUS package.  The tag, bow, and ribbons were attached to the belly band which easily slid off to allow access to the contents.  When they were done, the finished projects fit back in the box (extra large gift boxes on the Clearance Rack, 3 for $1.59) and the bands went back on so they could take home their treasures in total style.
My original plan was to hold my customer appreciation day at the end of this past year's Sale-a-Bration.  With the crazy days of life I finally booked the event in August--I told you I was a little late.  I stuck with my original plan to use the Artisan Embellishment Kits from the Occasions Catalog, which I hoarded, for the projects even though I was totally behind the eight ball.
Here is the journal I totally cased from Shelli's presentation.  I made only a few adjustments to fit the products I had on hand.
The stampin' was not done directly on the Mini Muslin Bags.  Instead I stamped on Iron On Transfer Paper, cut the Flower Fest images with the coordinating Framelits, and then ironed the pieces on.  The results are stunning!
