FWF and Ippity!!!

I didn't have time to make any cards or layouts this week because I was busy creating my very own lunch sack album/Ippity catalog so I could use every single Ippity stamp in every single available Ippity set.  Woo hoo!!

I took the Ippity logo off the web and enlarged it, printed it on cardstock for a little more durability, then sewed it to the first lunch sack, after I covered the page in paper from the first Ippity paper pack.



Then, I copied and resized the kit images off the web, printed them on cardstock, and attached them to the folded up bottom of the lunch sack.  I sewed around each page to create a pocket to hold a 4" x 11" piece of paper that I folded in thirds and then stamped with every single image from the kit.



Here you can see the piece of paper with the stamped images in Unity's burnt umber hybrid ink pad.  This is only one side; there are so many stamps in this set that there are more on the back!!




Here is the first paper pack - I die cut a piece of each paper as a mitten (cute, to go with my name) so the customer can pull it out of the pocket and take a look at both wonderful sides.

You can see that I am not quite done but I have shown it to several people who have been "wowed" by it.  All agree that seeing the actual stamped images makes a difference and makes it more likely that they'll purchase a set.

I'd love to hear what you think, especially Stacie, who gave the original paper bag inspiration:-)

Happy Friday everyone and remember to leave some love to all the bloghoppers today.
