Sneak Peak

You know the saying, "If it weren't for the last minute..." . I don't know why I waited until the last minute, but I am still working on that cheer bag "card". Tomorrow night we have the end of season banquet for the cheer team. The notes that the girls are writing will be inside along with other things you would normally find in a cheer bag. This is such a cute idea, I can't wait to finish it.

I just finished with the main part of the bag, so I thought I'd give you a preview. I have got to get to work on this thing as soon as the kids leave for school tomorrow. At least the hard part is done because of course at some point tomorrow, I have to prepare a dish for the banquet!

This is the inside before I stick the two sides together. This whole idea is a variation on my paper wallet. It's just a double paper wallet. You can find a link to the tutorial down on the right column.

I used my new jumbo wheel with Memories White Dye ink. I am trying to imitate the actual cheer bag, but it's plain boring navy with white letters. I thought this would give it a little interest without overload. The white dye ink will absorb a little more leaving a subtle background.

I hope you had a productive stamping day today, and I hope my day is very productive tomorrow. :)

Wow, this is looking interesting! The wheel looks nice on there with the white ink. I can't wait to see the finished product!
How many do you have to make, again??

Just one, thank goodness! It's for the coach. There will be a tag in each of the 16 pockets inside from each of the girls.
