It's hard to believe that June is right around the corner. Do you feel like this year is just flying by? Even though I'd like to slow things down a bit at times, right now, I'm excited to be able to share some projects that I made using this month's Power Poppy release sets. Today we're featuring the beautiful Lavender set. This set has charming images as well as warm sentiments. I chose to make a gift set that I felt fit perfectly with this set.
Awhile back, I made a Christmas version of this bag. You can find the tutorial HERE. Another version of the bag can be found HERE. I stamped the Lavender image onto canvas using Stazon ink, and colored it with Copics. There are itty-bitty sentiments in this set that fit perfectly in the little tag on the muslin bag. I decided to add the "Take it Easy" sentiment since I wanted this gift set to be a "revitalizing" gift. After fraying the edges a bit, I sewed it to one panel and proceeded to make the bag. Lastly I added a little canvas tag with the sentiment "Sending you a peaceful, easy Feeling" stamped onto it with Stazon ink once again. I added an eyelet to the punched hole at the top of the tag because canvas is notorious about fraying.
For my card, I took another piece of canvas and glued it (spray adhesive) to a kraft piece of card stock that was 1/4" smaller all the way around. I then inked up an embossing folder, added the canvas and dry embossed the piece. You can see the subtle lines in the canvas. I wanted to add a bit more texture. Once again, I frayed the edges and layered the panels. I added a ribbon flower I made quite awhile back, as well as some die-cut leaves to the top of my die-cut piece. The sentiment "Healing Thoughts", as well as the small image of lavender are also a part of this Lavender set.
Lastly, I included some Lavender Bath salts inside the gift bag to complete the gift.
That's it for today's project. If you haven't visited the rest of the Bloom Brigade Blogs, head there now. There's oodles of inspiration to be had!!
