Welcome to my little part of the Stamping World!  There are so many fabulous things in the new catalog, I had a hard time deciding what I wanted to use.  Of course, I ended up using my favorite products…embossing folders!  I hope you enjoy what I’ve created today.  Be sure to let me know if you have any questions!

Stamp Set:  Delightful Dozen, p. 167 Colors:  Marina Mist, Certainly Celery, Perfect Plum, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White Embossing Folder:  Designer Frames Punches:  Extra-Large Oval Accessories:  3 X 3 Envelopes, Certainly Celery 1/4″ Grosgrain ribbon, Nursery Nest DSP, Mini File Box Template This is such a fun project to do for yourself or to give as a gift.  What I love most about the project is the mini file folder.  What’s even better about the file folder, is I was able to find the pattern on Sudsol.  Besides for all the great ideas and feedback I get on the Sudsol Yahoo Group, I find myself using the patterns and templates on Sudsol the most.  The good news is, you can get this pattern right now with a 2-week free trial if you are a demonstrator.  Just click the link below and get started!  If you’re not a demonstrator, be sure to subscribe to my blog because in the near future, I plan to do a video tutorial on how to put one of these together!
