OpenHouseMake&Take

My Open House for the Spring~Summer Idea Book & Catalog is on Saturday. The theme is Cocoa and Catalogs. I am ALL about themes for every celebration, so when I saw Terri's idea, I knew it was perfect for my Open House. Of course, I will be serving cocoa on Saturday, but I thought it'd also be great to have the guests get to take some home! Here is the make and take they will do. Thanks to Kimmie, I made this cute hot cocoa cover. I had the hardest time figuring out everything from colors to covers for this make and take. Having very little, current designer series paper to work with, I had to choose a neutral stamp set to make my own background. The catalog was helpful when choosing a color scheme. I really liked the colors on page 37 of the catalog, so I went with it. I am pleased with the final product, even though I do wish I had some DSP to work with!

Stamp sets: Pun Fun, Seeing Spots; Paper: Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point & WW; Ink: Pacific Point, Only Orange, Chocolate Chip; Accessories: Blender Pen, Only Orange marker, Pacific Point 5/8" striped grosgrain ribbon, gold brads
