A Good Egg

I just love the name of this stamp set, "A Good Egg." I borrowed it from Heidi, and I kept saying, "I have to get A Good Egg from Heidi." My other friend looked at me and said, "Don't you have good eggs at home?" OK, so maybe it's only funny to me, but I think it's hilarious.

Here's a "treat sleeve" you can make up quick for a simple Easter gift. It's a half-sheet of Stampin' Up! card stock in Pretty in Pink (cut the 5.5" x 8.5" way), scored and folded at 4" and 8" (leaves a 1/2" tab that you use to adhere it together). The edge is trimmed with the eyelet border punch. A small piece of the Designer Series Paper stack in the subtles patterns is adhered to that, and then "A Good Egg" is used to stamp the chick, which is colored with Stampin' Write markers in Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie. A bit of ribbon and a cello bag slid inside finish it off. You can stick some candies inside. Yum!

We made this as the make-n-take at Tonya's workshop, where she had several friends over to learn about paper crafts, make a project and enjoy some treats that she so generously provided. If you'd like to host a workshop and earn free stamps (or paper or punches or buttons or...), just let me know!

Happy Easter, and thanks for reading!


  1. It was great to meet you and create with you! Have a safe trip home!

  2. This is one of my most favorite stamp sets, the bag is really cute... and loved the funny story about the eggs!! lol You have to come to my blog and look at a card I did with this stamp, I used Velcro on it and, that way you can change its Pants aka egg shell... it was a really big laugh at one of the meetings (look under labels for Easter cards). I also did it with the owl punch. Have a fun day!!
