Tuesday night my local demonstrator group met for their Christmas get together. It was so much fun and we swapped gifts. This is what I received from Renae and I love it! She had requested we give her three of our favorite colors and she used those to make the cover for the book. I love the new In Colors so I gave her Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple and Summer Starfruit as my three favorite colors. What you see below is what she did with those colors. Isn't that just the greatest way to repurpose a book? My first entry in my very own 'smash' book is all about our evening and the other great gifts I received. I'm definitely going to CASE this idea as I have many books that need to become useful again. It's a fantastic gift idea.
Because I have several special orders to complete and deliver, I'm going to be sharing the rest of the gifts from the other night throughout the rest of this week. I know, I know! I said I'd start sharing some of those projects with you today but they are still not done. With 28 snowflake ornaments, 40 gift boxes and one photo tray to make, I'm just not busy enough. Whew! Wears me out just thinking about it.
Stay tuned. Not only will I be showing off those projects soon, I'll be sharing some of the new happenings that are coming to the Stamping Cafe.
