Sunny Days & Lemonade by Diane


Today we welcome Diane Jaquay to the SRM Design Team!  Diane hails from Pennsylvania and her style is perfection!


Prior to the Design Team Call I was not familiar with Diane's work but when I saw her blog I was hooked and I knew immediately that I wanted her to be a member of our team.  I was so tickled to see her first project, a sweet packaging idea using SRM's large Kraft Bags, Doilies, SRM Borders and Twine!  She made these packets for her neighbors to welcome summer!  What a sweet treat!


To make these treat holders Diane started with an SRM Kraft bag that she folded and sewed with a zig zag stitch on 3 sides to form a pouch.  The 4" round doily is the perfect size to decorate the front of the pouch, and she just loved the way the Kraft color and doily looked together.  On top of the doily Diane placed several PTI Circle Scribble die cuts to look like the sun, then she topped it all off with a "sunny days & lemonade" sticker from SRM's Sticker Sentiment/Summer, with a green scallop trim across the bottom from SRM's We've Got Your Border/Bright.  Love how Diane used 3 strands of Mandarin Orange Twine on her project for added impact.  Looks great!

Diane made several of these and thinks she'll give them to a few of the Mom's with young children in her neighborhood as a way of saying "welcome summer"!  There are so many things you could put in these pouches, and so many ways you could decorate them. What ideas will you come up with?
