Little girl's stationery set--Sweets & Treats

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Wisteria Wonder), WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Stamps:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Sweets & Treats, Sweets & Treats Fillers), Papertrey Ink (Just for You)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral), Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Tag Sale #3 die), WPlus9 Design Studio (Sweets & Treats dies)
Other:  ribbon, baker's twine

One of my daughter's best friends moved to our street last summer from California.  She's headed back to southern CA for most of the summer to visit family, and I know she and my daughter will miss playing together.  So I decided to make a simple stationery set to help them keep in touch.

Using WPlus9's Sweets & Treats, I stamped the cupcakes in aqua, coral, and purple on flat notecards, rounding the corners to give them a polished look.  The sentiments are from Paper Smooches' Chit Chat.

Cardstock:  Michaels (White)
Stamps:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Sweets & Treats), Paper Smooches (Chit Chat)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral), Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Tools:  corner rounder

I came up with 5 simple designs and made 4 of each for a set of 20 cards.

Cardstock:  Michaels (White)
Stamps:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Sweets & Treats), Paper Smooches (Chit Chat)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral), Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Tools:  corner rounder

Since the girls are only 7, I thought it would help to label the envelopes so they know where everything should go.

Cardstock:  Michaels (White)
Stamps:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Sweets & Treats), Paper Smooches (Chit Chat), Papertrey Ink (Label Basics, Boxes, Bags, & Tags, Postmarks)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder), Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Tools:  corner rounder

I bought sheets of blank address labels, printed the return address, and stamped each with a cupcake.  I also included a sheet of postage stamps and a purple gel pen.

Address labels:  Avery
Stamps:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Sweets & Treats)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral)

This turned out so cute, and now my daughter is asking for her own set.  I have some ideas for making hers unique, so I'll be sure to share it when it's finished!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a wonderful start to your weekend!

Christina,I love this set! What a sweet idea! Great idea to have everything marked on the envelope already. Kinda sad the girls won't get to play together all summer. Love the adorable cupcakes too!

What a lovely stationery set - no wonder your daughter wants a Christina Maclaren original. Wait till my 10 yo sees this. Wisteria Wonder is my nightmare colour, but in your hands, it looks stunning.

Christina I LOVE this!!!!! OMG. How cute is that!
I'm old school and always taught my daughter (and grandkids) to send thank-yous, notes, etc... in actual handwriting! LOVE LoVE love this for my grandkids. They are coming for a 3 week visit and I will have them help make it! They can write mom & dad.
I love it and thanks for sharing.

Christina, this is just too darn cute! What a fun and clever idea too and I am sure your daughter and her sweet friend will have so much fun writing back and forth to each other. I passed on this set from WP9 and now I am seriously regretting it. thanks for the inspiration!

Nancy said...

Adorable idea Christina and so cute I can see why your daughter would want her own set too. Love the idea of using the clear stamp box packaging as well, glad to be able to use a few of them!

Sharron said...

Adorable gift idea! I'm sure the girls will miss each other and this will be a wonderful way to keep in touch. I agree with Diane about teaching kids the value of writing an actual note. This is a perfect idea!

Michelle said...

I love this idea, Christina! So cute! I bet the girls have fun writing to each other. :-)

Oh! This is so cute. I love it. And I guess it would be fun to write letters if you’re using adorable stationary paper like these. Thanks anyway for sharing this idea.
