Fundraiser projects

It feels so satisfying to cross off all those items on my to do list. My last project this week was to make items to donate to a local fundraiser. I have created two baskets, although I'm not sure if the one basket is worth giving as it seems kind of blah.

Here is the basket I am donating for sure:

This basket contains a keepsake box that holds 10 handcrafted cards with envelopes, a stamped candle, a bookmark and a sticky note holder with pen. Here are some individual pictures of these items:

It was so much fun putting these items together. The keepsake box is so perfect to give as a gift filled with cards. These items use my current favourite stamp set - Bliss - from the Sale-a-bration catalogue. Today is the last day to earn SAB goodies so I made sure to get one last order in so that I could earn another Bliss set to give away at some point.

The other basked contained stamped tile items - a tea pot trivet and two coasters. I made a card to match as well. Somehow this basket seems so bland compared to the first one:

Sorry - the picture of the card isn't the best because I forgot to turn on the flash.

So, since it has been such a busy week and there has been a shortage of sleep, I will leave it at that so I can go to bed!!! Thanks for stopping by.



  1. While I do think that the Bliss gift basket is awesome, I think that the tea coaster basket is cute too! I would be excited to get either one!

  2. What great projects! Following you via Stampin' Connection:

    I'd love for you to follow me, too.

  3. The Bliss basket is GORGEOUS. For the second one, maybe some specialty teas or coffees with a nice ribbon around them. A little matching notepad and pen for jotting notes while sipping your cuppa.
