A Reason to Smile in July

Stampin' Up! always gives us a reason to smile and Stampin' Up!'s limited edition Reason To Smile stamp set is not exception. In July this limited edition set could be purchased for only $5.00 with a minimum purchase. If you signed up for my mailing list then  you were sent an e-card with all the details.  The cute little milk carton below was cased from the Stampin' Up! flyer for this promotion. It was one of the  projects we made at my July club class.

Old:  the curved pink strips were left over from a stamp camp I have over a year ago.  The strips were left from the curved edges of the box template.  

As you can I see I very rarely through left overs away.  I have a 12 x 12 drawer that is getting full so I will have to start using them to make room for more.
