Smartee meet Patterned Occasions
I got a lot of teasing from my family recently when they saw this giant size bag of Smartees candy in my craft room. They mused about who would buy a big bag of candy that was not chocolate. They thought I was eating them! I explained that I bought the giant bag on clearance after Halloween, and I used it for craft sale crafts, and I still had all of these left over. Little did they know that I already had another project planned for those little rolls of Smartees, but I was just waiting for my new SaleABration stamp sets to arrive. This set, Patterned Occasions, had these cute little jeans that say "Congratulations, smarty pants", and I was primed for the project. I took the design from the post-it holders that I made in the past, and made it wide enough to hold 2 rolls of Smartees. You could alter it to fit a little candy bar if you wanted to. In the green card I decided to wrap the Smartees with matching paper, but really don't think it's necessary. I love the candies, and how they look. (I don't care what anybody says, I still like my Smartees candy, because it reminds me of my childhood, and sharing the roll with my sisters.
I did take advantage of a couple of challenges for my inspiration. Sketch Frenzy Friday had this fun layout that I used, and for the green card I used the color combination form Just Us Girls Challenge 172 for lime green, gray, and white. Inside I just added a little white paper with patterned paper trim, for you to write a personal note. These were fun to make, and I can hardly wait to make some more with the other stamps in the set. Maybe tomorrow, so please stop back.
