course my first thought was to put a valentine greeting inside; however, the pouch is large enough that it could hold some special treat (maybe chocolate???). This was made by cutting the basic section on the back with the Petal Cone Die. The front is using Designer Series Paper from the Level 1 Hostess paper pack in the 2010/2011 Idea Book & Catalog, also cut with the Petal Cone Die. Don't you LOVE the flowers? These were made with the new Fun Flowers Die that you can also find in the Occasions Mini Catalog and the leaves are actually petals from the Blossoms Petal Punch. Pretty cute, huh?
This next project is one of my favorites. Again using the Petal Cone Die and Pumpkin Pie Cardstock, I made a "carrot" for Easter. The front is stamped with the Easter Blossoms stamp set using Pumpkin Pie classic ink. The little banner on the Petal Cone die is what I curled slightly and attached to the front and on top of that I attached a piece of Victoria Lace with a small piece of Daffodil Delight 1/8" ribbon tied around the lace. Then I attached a button from the Neutrals Button collection with a small piece of linen thread tied into it. The back of the "carrot", I adhered some DSP in Old Olive; then filled with "crimped grass" and pixie sticks.
The project on the right is again made using the Petal Cone die. This project is made with Early Espresso cardstock with some Blushing Bride Designer Series paper from the Level 1 Hostess Paper pack. On top of that I attached a scallop circle with another circle cut with the 1 3/8" circle punch. The image is stamped in Early Espresso classic ink using the Clearly For You stamp set that you can find in the Occasions Mini Catalog.
Don't forget, if there are things in the Occasions Mini that you can't live without, it will be expiring on 4-30-11. We NEVER know if any of the stamp sets will appear in a future Idea Book & Catalog, so hurry to get in your order before the end of the month.
The Other item shown is made from the Scallop Square die and I have attached a square of Designer Series Paper onto the cardstock. I punched a hole on the top opposite corners, added some Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and a greeting from the Defining Life Stamp Set which was punched out with the Decorative label Punch. I also attached a rosette from the Occasions Mini Catalog and a few leaves punched from the Blossoms Petal Punch.
Hope you enjoyed these projects and I have a few more to show you tomorrow.
Enjoy your Monday, at least the weather is improving and the leaves are coming out on the trees and bushes..... FINALLY. Today my husband actually mowed the lawn because it was looking pretty shaggy with all the rain we've had and it looked so pretty and reminded me that soon we will be able to sit outside and enjoy the warm sun!!! Can't wait.
