Mini kit projects

Happy weekend everyone!
 
Today I have some projects I made using the October mini kit from Creative Craft World that
Lou very kindly sent me.
It is a mix of beautiful turquoise and orange from the Teresa Collins 'Tell your story' collection
~ you can see (and buy) the kit HERE.
 
 
All four projects and I still have lots left over to make more!

 

In the kit there are lots of beautiful die cut flowers.  I took the largest of them and sewed messy stitches around the petals with my sewing machine.
The image is a stamp from Crafter's Companion which I coloured with Copics and I took another of the large flowers and paper pieced her dress with it. The pearls are also included in the kit and the ribbon is from my stash.
The sentiment is stamped and was a freebie with a magazine(from last year I think).

 This card is very simple to make. I embossed the bottom of the card with a Cuttlebug 'swirls' embossing folder and added a strip of paper and a strip of glitter card from the kit.
I shaped the die cut flowers, layered them together and adhered them to the card with foam pads.
The sentiment is by Papermania and is stamped with a Stampin' Up marker.
 
 This mini carton was cut out with the Cameo and covered with paper from the kit. I then added stickers and gems which are also included in the kit.
I haven't put anything in the box yet but it would make a lovely little treat box filled with sweets or a scented candle.
 
...and lastly I made a tag, which I cut out with the Cameo.
I added a layer of patterned paper and a hexagon sticker (from the sticker sheet also in the kit) and a clear adhesive gem.
 
To enter the challenge, all you have to do is make a project with bling on it and make it smaller than 12x12".
The winner will be chosen by the Design Team and the prize is a fab mini kit, a generous discount at
Creative Craft World and a Guest Design Team spot.
So why not get creating!
 
Thanks so much for joining me today
and I'll be back soon with more.
Take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
