Festive Friday Challenge #132 - Global Pay It Forward Day

It's time for another Festive Friday Challenge! Every second Friday we post a challenge for you with a specific theme and an Inspo List of 10 items to choose from to create your project.  We encourage you to create a project based on the theme and Inspo List and then post it using at least 3 items from the inspiration list.

This week’s challenge FF #132 - Global Pay It Forward Day

Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project and link up! #festivefridaychallenge  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion. I hope you’ll make a card, scrapbook page or 3-D project and join us. You don’t need a blog to enter Festive Friday. Check out this link on how you can play along with this challenge. If you want help entering, please email me at stampinwithmelva@gmail.com and I’d be happy to help you!   

For my project this week, I created an envelope from the Mini Envelope Die that I will be taking with me on the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip to give tips to staff on the cruise ship.  Thanks to all of my customers and team I earned the Incentive Trip last year and we are headed on a cruise to the Norwegian Fjords in May.  I was very honoured to be one of only 380 demonstrators world wide (that's less than 0.1% of all demonstrators) to earn the trip.  I'm so excited to be going!  I hope they will like the package and of course the tip.  I also have some Maple candy and Maple syrup to give them.


  1. Cut envelope from Petal Pink cardstock using Die
  2. Cut Designer Series Paper 2 1/4" x 3"
  3. Adhere to front of envelope
  4. Stamp 2 large and 2 small hearts on Basic White cardstock - 1 using Petal Pink ink and 1 using Balmy Blue ink
  5. Punch hearts out
  6. Stamp 2 sets of leaves using Old Olive ink on Basic White cardstock
  7. Punch leaves out
  8. Adhere hearts to envelope using Dimensionals
  9. Adhere leaves behind hearts using Glue Dots
  10. Cut tag from Petal Pink cardstock
  11. Stamp sentiment on tag using Petal Pink ink
  12. Cut 6" of White twine and put through tag and tie a bow
  13. Adhere to hearts using Dimensionals
  14. Adhere embellishments.
