New mini staring 1 April sneak peeks

Hi fellow crafters,
Many thanks for finding your way here and checking out what I have been up to lately. feel free to leave me a comment if you like as its always nice to get comments on creations.
I have spent the weekend playing around with new products from the new mini that starts on 1 April.
Here are a few things that I have created using the new framelits ...............

For the special young lady in my life. This uses the largest framelit. Wondering what is inside????

A lip balm. I took the wrapping around the lip balm off and covered it with a small piece of DSP. A very cute little gift and cheap as. The card came from my scrap drawer and the DSP was a small scrap I had too. A couple of dimensionals and a blender pen to colour in the leaves and flower centres.

For the next 3 cards I made a cad base 4 x 4 inches and used the 3rds smallest framelits die (there are 6 altogether in the set) and there is a matching stamp set to go with them.

Well thats all for today.
Happy crafting

Easter gifts for school

Usually Savannah and I make gifts for her to give the staff at school but this year I have had to make them on my own. :-( She requested I make "the twisty things" for her friends and the staff. After a bit of discussion I worked out that she wanted the candy wrapper die so I set to making them up.

I used more mustard (don't guess the colour in DSP as you can get it wrong like I did) but I don't think the girls and the staff will notice. Each candy wrapper has easter eggs inside it and is covered in the gorgeous Salebration paper we have this year, then topped off with the largest butterfly in the Beautiful Wings embosslit.

Just so you don't have to count them there are 42 in total. I had fun making them and hope the girls and staff enjoy them.
Till next time happy crafting
