Hi Everyone, before I start sharing about my new creation would like to share something here my husband and me have moved to US we now stay in Santa Clara California. I moved in here in April first week still settling down setting up our new home, shopping for furniture, kitchen etc.. and in between I did some craft shopping too in Joann's there was 40% sale going on so bought a few dies n fiskars paper trimmer(had one earlier I left it in India) the store had a huge collection of ribbons, paper(mostly DCWV), MS punches and fabrics. I am setting up my craft table so found a solution to store my stamps, dies, embossing folders from PootlesPapercraft. I have used complete A4 size sheets, We R Memory pattern papers, stamped and fussy cut the flower, wooden embellishments and ribbons from stash.  This is how I have used them

Box size: 91/2*51/2*4 inches Used button die from Memory box to make the heart and the hearts are raised using the foam dots and the sentiment is stamped using the hero arts clear stamps. This small box is I Woof You Too. Box Size: 71/2*51/2*4 inches The hearts are hand cut and "xoxo" is die cut using lawn fawn die alphabet dies This box is one of my favorites. Its simple and elegant look. This hamper is Birthday Special Woof. Box size: 9*9*4 inches Again here the hearts are hand cut and distressed with vintage distress ink. the distress look of the hearts match the hearts on the pattern paper.
