It's release time at Papertrey Ink and the design team is back today with our second group post... yay!
We're focusing on Garden Variety Continues...
and the name has inspired me to continue on with my original Garden Variety projects.
The original Garden Variety mint cakes.
One of my all-time favorite projects.
So it seems only fitting that as Garden Variety continues, I bring you these...
Garden Variety Continues seedlings treats.
Strawberry seedling treats, obviously :)
Let's start off with the crafted goodies, shall we?
First up is a wax paper seed packet with the new seed packet frame on top. When I saw the new frame my mind immediately started pairing it up with the new Strawberry Patch set... I just thought the strawberries would look so cute peeking out from the frame :)
I made the packet itself by die cutting a double layer of wax paper. I actually used a light layer of spray adhesive to put the sheets together and later had a duh moment when I realized I could have just ironed them together. Ah, well. Either way will work.
Stamping on wax paper is a bit hit or miss to me (even with permanent ink) so I went with the simple solution and just added a layer of vellum between the frame and the actual seed packet. I just stamped the larger Strawberry Patch image onto that and did some super simple Copic coloring.
Stamping the frame was fun with the addition of a few words from the Friendship Flowers: Summer Fillers. Both of the words in the "title" came from that set. Love how that turned out :)
I went ahead and slipped a gift card to a nursery into the seed packet... the seed packet die is probably my favorite way to package a gift card ever. It's just simple and perfect :)
Totally love the sentiment in the new Garden Variety set. Don't you think this is the perfect sentiment for end-of-school year teacher gifts? We've been working with our youth group for 10 years now and I can think of LOTS of volunteer teachers who would appreciate that thought :)
I thought it would be fun to make the new plant image into a strawberry plant so I added the tiny strawberries from Strawberry Patch... they fit pretty darned perfectly (grin!). Love that :) If you click on the picture you can see that I added the small patches of flowers from Garden Variety Continues to fill in the smaller spaces.
Let's move on to the sweet stuff, k?
Have you figured out what our little seedling treats are is this time??
I'll give you one hint...
this one's a no-bake :)
And what is the most famous of all no-bake sweets?
The rice krispie treat :)
