Behind the Scenes...with me!

I have a fun little project to share with you today!  It's being featured over on the Clear and Simple Newsletter!  Stop over there to read a little bit more about my project and a little interview I did!  :)

Did you see CSS's latest release?  Well, its pretty awesome!  They have the cutest new little favor die... check out what I made!

Here I have a matching favor box and card, perfect for a teacher!

I made these apples with the pop outs from the handles of this favor box!  I just layered the pop outs with some red cardstock for the apple peel and stamped some seeds!  The seeds are actually from a small leaf stamp in the Taglines: Critters set.  How fun is that?  And here is a close up of this very CAS card...

Here is how I made the apples with just a couple scraps of white paper and the handle from the treat box die...




Perfect for scraps right?  Then just add some red cardstock and seeds!  


Here are the projects one more time...

Now stop over to the CSS blog and check out the interview!  Be sure to stay tuned for a February Release Review for Clear and Simple!  Remember, the releases are bimonthly now!  And don't forget to check back at the beginning of March for the next release.  All I'm gonna say is hold on to your seats!  ;)

Thank you so much for stopping by!!  Have a great day!

  23. Laurie, this is AWESOME!!! Such a perfect little giftie bag and card for a teacher!! I LOVE how you turned the pieces from the center of the handles into apples!!!! SOOO CLEVER!! And the apple seeds are little leaves?!?! Way to think outside the box, girlie!!! AWESOME work! And...kudos to you for giving your little girl more responsibility!! It takes a lot of patience to let kiddos do things for themselves, but it's SO WORTH IT!!! You're helping her to build a good foundation of important life skills!!!
