Sending You Sunshine

Here is my project and I am so excited to finally share it with you! The new Labels 7 and the Circle Cut Impressabilities were a ton of fun to play with. As usual, I had to push the dies to see what else I could create. After looking at the pieces for a while, I saw a window and knew I could make the best curtains for that window!

Ready for more? :) My second project uses the Labels 7 die in a more traditional manner. This set of Nestabilities makes the BEST book! Stop back Friday to see a tutorial on how to make the book. (which has the start of The Night Before Christmas stamped on its front pages)
