August in My Neighborhood! with The Creation Station

Happy Sunday to you! Wow - it has been months since I've joined in on the fun with the Creation Station team.  I had to step back from a few of the design teams I'm on while we moved, and I am fortunate enough that the teams welcome me back! :)  So here I am!  If you came from Julie, thanks for continuing on to me.

This month's theme is August in My Neighborhood and this was so perfect for me.  We moved 5 weeks ago into a new subdevelopment and there are families moving in almost weekly.  For my project I used the hostess set called In the City.  I love this set - it's so much fun to play around with and create city scenes.  Our boys like to stamp with it too!

We noticed new neighbors two houses down the other day so I thought this would be a nice way to say welcome!  I know I could have used the "welcome to our block" sentiment, but I thought the "neighborhood" seemed sweet.

I will (shamefully) admit that I did not bake this.  I was in the hospital this week and it's been just a long few days.  I cheated and bought some Blackberry Peach Coffee Cake - yummo!

I kept the original packaging for the bread and made a little box with a sheet of Delightful Daisy DSP.  I stamped a little scene on some whisper white cardstock and cut it out with the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

I've done this technique several times where I simply wrap the bread with Vellum.  I'm not quite certain it's food safe, so you could use wax or parchment paper if you'd like.  I added a belly band of Crumb Cake cardstock that I stamped the little buildings and trees on.  

I added a doily and some ribbons and the gift was complete.

This really didn't take long at all and it's a sweet way to dress up a little loaf of bread.  You could even create something for a bag of cookies too.

Thanks for stopping by!  You can head back to Julie or onto Val Moody!

Have a wonderful day!
