Slice ©

Grammy’s Sewing Kit ©

Upon creating the Grammy’s Sewing Kit ©, it was obvious that it could be a picnic basket! Another fun activity that I am so fond of 😀 I think you can really do so much between this template, and many of our Pretty Impressions Stamp Sets.

So with any Picnic, or outing you need 1) an invitation, and 2) a great centerpiece or favor!

I love how this little set turned out.

So since it was a picnic, and I needed an invite, I created this super sweet Apple invitation using the *NEW* An Apple a Day Slice ©. I think it is adorable, and was perfect for the invite.

I cut my apple card in red, layered the large slice in white, then the slices in the red gingham pattern from the Picnic of Patterns © paper collection. My seeds and stem were cut from a chocolate cardstock, with my polka dot leaf print coming from the Grammy’s Pretty Patterns © paper collection. I then embellished it with a ribbon and fabric flower I had on hand.

My sentiment “Time for a picnic” and the ants came from the *NEW* Tooty Fruity © set. The label it is printed on was cut from the Fine Finish © label cut file.

On the inside of the card I printed my Let’s Do Lunch! sentiment, with the gingham ribbon pattern from the Tooty Fruity © set, and my RSVP information was from the Happy Camping © set. I love mixing and matching stuff! So once it was printed, I cut the apple layer and placed it inside my card.

So for the actual picnic basket….

I used the Grammy’s Sewing Kit © template to make my picnic basket! I cut the template in a red cardstock and planned on using the red gingham pattern from the Picnic of Patterns © set for my decorative layers. I always associate the red gingham pattern with picnic, so this was perfect.
I had so many ideas it was hard to narrow down which direction to go in the actual decoration of my basket. I wanted to use the fruits from the Tooty Fruity © set, but seeing some of our team do that I wanted to show you some other design options. Since I think about eating at a picnic I thought a place setting would be super cute!!!
So with that idea in mind I printed the “Time for a picnic” sentiment  from the Tooty Fruity © set, along with the daisy image from theFancy a Cuppa? ©set onto my cardstock, and I used the Fine Finish © label cut file to create my “plate” and “placemat”.
I cut a square from the same gingham print in Picnic of Patterns ©, and folded it in half to make my table cloth!
I then printed, colored, and cut out the knife, fork, and spoon, so I could layer it with dimensionals onto my placemat!
Without too much embellishing my Grammy’s Sewing Kit © template came together in no time. I wanted a little more WOW! so I tied on some red ribbon, with the centers embellished with a red flower, cut using the
Bloom Builders © cut file (I used a stylus to emboss the petals), and layered on another daisy into the center.
Something else was missing so I thought that the bumble bee from Bee-Loved ©  would be the perfect addition!
So I stamped my bee in versamark first, then applied a heat & stick powder, which I heat set, then added glitter to, so I could have sheer glittery bee wings. I then stamped, colored and cut my bee body, and layered the wings on top!
Perfectly simple! I love it.
Now what to package up??!!
That is nice when it is the biggest deliemma you have.
