Claire's Make & Takes

During the weekend of the Creativity Escape, Claire very kindly offered to run two make and take classes demonstrating Stampin' Up products.  They made a nice change of pace and gave everyone a chance to pop out of the main cropping room and create something small.

Claire is a very talented designer and we are very fortunate to have her share her talents with designs for Total Papercrafts.  She offered us two very different projects - a decorated mini milk carton and a super-cute Easter card with a spinning sheep decorating the front! 

The milk carton used one of the largest and one of the smallest stamps available from the catalogue together with a Sizzix die that takes all of the hard work out of creating these fab little cartons complete with folding pouring spout.  I can think of so many ways that this could be used - wedding favours, teacher gifts...the list goes on.  Claire slipped a Creme Egg into each carton as we made them, such a lovely touch and very typically kind of her.

The card was so cute it had everyone cooing over it and who would have guessed that it was made from some very simple punched shapes.  Claire made me look at my punches in a new light with this fun card!

If you would like more details about the projects shown here or would like to order from Stampin' Up then I'd be more than happy to forward any enquiries to Claire.

Just wanted to add that these were the ones Dave made in the session - not Claire's perfect versions!!
