Have you ever met someone new and connected so fast, that it was like you knew each other forever. I have met such a person. Her name is Diane and she manages the hotel where we had a block of rooms for Emily and Jeff's wedding. When I saw the Stampin' Up! June Paper Pumpkin, I knew I wanted to make the sunshine box for her.
With everything going on in the country right now, Emily and Jeff decided to delay their big wedding until next summer. They are still getting married on Friday, but with only immediate family. It will definitely be a lot smaller, but still special for them. Jeff's mom and I are trying very hard to make it as special as we can for both of them.
Diane has gone out of her way to help us with things for the wedding before it was delayed and since. We can't thank her enough for everything she has done for me and Emily and Jeff. If you ever have need a hotel in Tomball, TX I highly recommend the Hampton Inn. The hotel is beautiful and I can't say enough good things about them.
I made 4 of the cards from the kit the way they are designed. Then I went a little crazy with creating different things for the sunshine box for Diane.
The project on the left is a notebook. I made a cover for a pad of paper using the front section of one of the cards and the accessories from the kit. The project on the right is a gift card holder. I found the designer series paper from my retired stash. It is from the Tropical Oasis designer series paper from the 2020 Janauary - May mini catalog. It was perfect for this project. I also used a small piece of designer series paper from the Artistry Blooms paper pack in the new annual catalog for the pen. The colors coordinated so nice.
I love how you can use one product from one suite and it coordinates with another suite. That is one of the biggest reasons why I love Stampin' Up! Everything coordinates!

2020 Holiday Extravaganza
It is Monday! A new day, a new week, so many possibilities! We are helping Emily move today and tomorrow into the house her and Jeff rented. What an exciting time for the two of them. I still don't understand how Emily could be old enough to get married when I am only 29 years old. LOL
Have a great week and thank you so much for stopping in today!
Happy Stampin and
