Some Open House Samples and another Catty Case!

Here are just a few samples of items on display at my Open House this week:

1. The Totally Tess Fancy Favor Box filled with some of my favorite new and not so new "essential" products! This is cased right out of the Catalog and Idea Book on Page 73! I just changed the color of the box, clipped on the new mini clothespins, and filled the box with a few of my favorite items (Paper Snips, a clear block, the Flower Fusion Sizzlet, the new In Color Markers, a punch, and some Stampin' Mist). I'm submitting this as another sample for Gretchen Barron's Inspiration in Action Catalog Case Contest found at this post here.

2. Another Fancy Favor Box! I used some Not Quite Navy 12x12 paper to cut out this box, and I cut some flowers using the Fun Flowers die to cut out some Daffodil Delight flowers. The centers are the large buttons from the Brights Buttons collection. I tied some linen thread through the centers to attach them to the flowers. Cute, huh?! The sentiment is framed using the new Designer Frames Embossing Folder. I love it! The mini flower is punched with the Boho Blossom punch, and the ribbon is the "new" Bashful Blue Satin Ribbon (new to the big catalog, but carried over from the spring Mini Catalog! Love it!).

(Stamp Set: Just Believe)

3. This is a "recycled" frappucino bottle that I covered with a strip of the Just Add Cake DSP. The flowers are cut from various sizes of the Fun Flowers and the Blossom Party dies. I used these flowers to showcase the new In Colors: 4 colored flowers, plus the leaves are cut from the Lucky Limeade paper to make number 5! I wouldn't say cute ... but definitely effective!

Oops, forgot to mention that the brads are the new In Color brads! Don't you love them?!!

Thanks for checking me out!
