May Kit sneak peek!

Hello! When the May kit landed on my doorstep earlier this week, I was SO amazed at what was inside . . . seriously, four of my favorite manufacturers! The kit is loaded with goodness and happy colors. You are going to love it!

Here is a sneak peek of my first project with kit:
Any guesses on product?? It's fabulous. I'm sure this one will sell out faster than Dash!

Be sure to visit the main site on the 25th to see the kit reveal and the awesome projects posted by the design team.

Enjoy your your weekend.

Upcycle Project

Hi friends!

I'm sure you all have your April Kits by now. :)

So......... I thought I would show you a fun upcycle project
 I made using the April Kit.

It started out looking like this:
You can get your hands on this jar of cookies at most
Target stores for about $7.00 each.
{they are yummy!}
After you've shared & eaten all the cookies,
hand wash the inside with soap and water, rinse and air dry.
Then you'll be ready to create this...
A fun jar to store all your ribbon scraps.
Mine is filled mostly with previous Paper Posies Kit ribbons. :)

Just cover the front with a large strip of pattern paper.
Cut out one of the large journal blocks to use for the title.
Add some alphas, ribbon and embellies and you're done.
Now just fill 'er up!!

Here are some other ideas to fill your jar:
chipboard shapes
fabric/felt remnants
small toys or gifts

Grab your kit and put your crafty-ness to work
into something upcycled, wonderful and fun!
