My first project uses the new Make It Amazing, the Project Panty Kit London Market, and a number of new dies. I started with one  of Taylor's Perfect Package Card Boxes and four wooden knobs. I painted my wooden knobs with Ivory Paint and added Distressing Ink in Vintage Photo. I covered the box in papers for the Project Pantry kit. 


I stamped a flower and sentiment from the Make It Amazing Stamp Set and cut it out with the new Frame It Up 3 Die. The sentiment is mounted on a doily cut with the Meduim Layering Doily Die


My leaves are cut from felt using the Twiggy Branch Die and the two butterflies are cut with the new Elegant Butterflies Dies. I added pearls, Prima Flowers in Sorbet and a Prima Wooden Buttons Songbird.


I cut each of my butterflies out twice from paper in the kit. 





Next I have a project using the new Fruity Friends Stamp Set.  This set features 20 images/sentiments and was concepted by our very own, Wanda Guess! . These stamps will make you smile!! I used the Strawberry Stamp and sentiments to create a small gift. 



My berry is colored with Copics. My papers are from Jillibean Soup 6x6 Pad - Coconut Lime. I added ribbon laced through on of the new Fancy Buckles Die. Fancy Buckles is a die set of five new buckles. My bottom border is cut with the Scalloped Eyelet Border.



Next I made a coordinating tag using the Frame It 1 die as my base, the Layering Doily Small to mount the image on, a large Eyelet and another sentiment from the stamp set. I cut out the jar from the patterned paper. 




Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to stop by all the designers blogs today for lots more inspiration!  I will be back tomorrow with another sneak peek!
