Cherish

This is another frame I made. I used a metallic finish of an espresso acrylic. The left side is a rub-on with dew dots. I hot glued flowers at the bottom. I find that hot glue works the best on wood surfaces so that they do not fall off later. The antique flowers are brads from Hobby Lobby by Paper Studio. I adhered a purple lace and cream grosgrain ribbon to the bottom. Tim Holtz hinge clip is on the right side for a special note. I included the stamped cherish message for the time being. I stitched around it and placed it in a purple window frame that is emobossed using rectangle nestabilities. Sheer ribbon is tied around the hinge clip for added 'punch'. I stamped blessings in the center part until the person decides what picture to include.







This is the personalized card that I designed to go along with the frame and gift bag. I decided to stamp her name on it. I carried along the rub-on theme with the dew dots at the bottom. The same purple lace ribbon is used. The sentiment is stamped on a designer label by SU!

















This is the matching gift bag. I used the same designer label punch and matted it on a purple one that I cut out. I placed white liquid pearls around the edges and personalized it with a monogrammed H. The same purple lace and cream ribbon are used. I stamped a design and added flowers at the bottom. I carried the stitching over here as well on the bag.

This set is given to someone who is accepting a new job and moving away. The gift giver is showing her appreciation to her and wishing her well with her fabulous big time career! Congratulations, Heather!

Ashley, I love it! Purple is one of my favorites, so you were divinely inspired! Only downside was wrestling mom for it when she saw it. :-) Seriously, I want to thank you so much for the time, effort and amazing creativity you put into my gift. It means so much to me and will be displayed in a place of honor (the gift bag too!) in my new office.
Blessings to you and your family,
Heather
