We're back again tonight for ANOTHER group post! Are you excited or what? Aren't we tricky? And here it isn't even Halloween or April 1st.
Tonight the PTI team is featuring the new "Everyday Treats" set by Nichole. I had so much fun on this project. And it was hardly any effort. Which is why I will be a slave to PTI until the day I stop breathing. Just absolutely fabulous stuff.
Now that fall is almost here, it is time to start baking. Fall flavors such as pumpkin, maple, cinnamon, and apple make amazing quick breads and fill your house with the most amazing scents. With that in mind, I decided to bake a loaf of pumpkin bread to give to my high school best friend, who just happens to live only five doors down from me now. A "welcome to the neighborhood" gift. As soon as I'm done typing up this blog post, I'm going to run it down. She checks the blog here so I've got to deliver it before she peeks online.
Michael's always sells seasonal ceramic loaf pans. I picked up a mustard yellow one for $3.60 using a coupon. This way not only is the actual bread a gift, but the container as well. And if she so chooses, she could totally regift both the pan and the PTI wrapper. I wouldn't tell a soul as long as she doesn't mind that the pumpkin bread isn't exactly from scratch. It's a Pillsbury mix. Shhhhh. Just couldn't find a can of pumpkin in the store. Crazy, no?
I used the label stamp from Everyday Treats that matches up with the Mat Stack 4 die. Added a few leaves from Leaf Prints to pull in the fall theme. And is that new impression plate not simply to die for? Up there with Woodgrain as one of my favorites.
I created the sleeve out of two pieces of kraft cardstock and a scoring tool. Super easy. Loaf pan is wrapped in Saran Wrap before sliding it in the sleeve. The perfect presentation.
Now...\ that Mat Stack label had my wheels a spinnin'. Reminded me of a bee hive. And the Honey Bees stamp set. Why not combine the two? Had to do it. I took one of the little flowers from Honey Bees and randomly stamped inside the hexagons. Copic markers add a little color and depth.
Be sure to check out the fun projects from the entire PTI Design Team tonight. We've been busy little bees ourselves, I'd say.
