Hello again!!!  I'm so happy to see you back here today.  Today, I get to share one of my most favorite projects I created for this release.  A special gift for a teacher at the school...and it's a home decor item!  Well, actually, it's more like a class decor item.  Wherever she chooses to hang it really!


All of the images are from one of the new sets being peeked today, Faith in Bloom.  This set was illustrated by Emily Burger for her Embracing Grace line of stamps, and it features Bible verses and words of encouragement, along side some cute and quirky blooms.  I had so much fun putting this together!!  I found my inspiration from a framed piece through Pinterest, which was linked back to 2 Peas HERE

I bought a really large frame...  14" x 18" cheap over at Michael's!  I lined the frame with a layer of bleached muslin cloth and then cut these squares into 3" x 3" pieces from the MME Miss Caroline Dolled Up line of paper.  I also used a whole mess of Taylored Dies on my projects!

I hope she likes it...I think that she will!! :)

I also made one more project for today...featuring the new Royal Treatment Crowns Dies.


I thought, for my card, that it would be fun to use the negative image that the die leaves behind.  Sometimes, that just adds a fun and different dimension to a card, right? :)  I just took a piece of the blue cardstock and used the Musical Swirls Impression Plate to make a textured background.  I then used the Medium Doily Die to cut out a piece of paper from MME Lost & Found Blush papers.  The stamp is from the other newly releasing stamp set, Royal Digs.  I accented the top of the crown with tiny blue rhinestones from the Multicolored Taylor's Twinkles

And that is all for me today!!!  I hope you will hop around to see what the rest of the Baker's have created for you today...there will be lots more to see!  Thanks for visiting and I look forward to seeing you back tomorrow for the big release!
