5th Avenue Floral Boxed Set

I LOVE IT! She was my inspiration! What a beautiful set. I really like the 5th Avenue Floral set now. Thanks to Dunja for lending it to me until I can get my own! Also I am in love with the Urban Oasis designer papers now too! I am so going to miss Baja Breeze at the end of June when it is no longer available! I ordered a Sizzix Button Sizzlit and used my Big Shot to make the buttons! Even though i absolutely L O V E buttons and have hoarded them since childhood in a restaurant size pickle jar I thought it would be more fun and economical to make my own. My stamping friends always tell me I don't use a lot of stamps that can be coloured in. I just seem to be attracted to the solid images more for some reason. Check it out! I will be offering this class at the Saturday Camp Crop-A-Lot on June 13th. I used items from my recycling bin to make the box as well as a paper cutter, patience, adhesive and my word window punch. I hope you like it as much as i do! Thank-you Andrea Walford for

I save every one of them. The aren't very fat but they are very full! A similar card was featured with instructions but no photos except the front using some of the same and some different stamps sets here. I love how it 'pops'It's not as complicated as the one in our magazine but it was very challenging! I used my home made glimmer mist, my corner rounder, blender pens, a Sizzix Big Shot die called Scribbles & Swirls. Also I used some Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette Cardstock as well as some Pretty in Pink Gingham ribbon. The Stampin'Up! stamp sets I used include Fifth Avenue Flor
