Fox and Friends!

Welcome to the lilyinkpad stop on the Stampin' Addicts Occasions Mini Catalog Blog Hop!

The Occasions mini catalog rocked my December. I had planned to be budget conscious, buy very little, and not go crazy when I got a sneak peek at the new Mini Catalog. Then, reality hit. WHAT AN AMAZING COLLECTION OF PRODUCTS! I immediately had a wish list the length of my to do list paper and had to sweat and work to windle it down to a manageable order! My nephew Nathan, the frugal one, helped me out a bit when he suggested I needed a new animal set. Why not? Fox and Friends became mine! I couldn't wait to play and here is what I created:

Stamps: Fox and Friends
Paper: Sweat Pea Designer Paper, Taken with Teal, Whisper White, Rose Red
Ink: Taken with Teal
Accessories: Big Shot, Flower Layers with Leaf Bigz Die, Scallop Circle #2 Die, 1 3/4 Circle Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, 12" Paper Trimmer with Scoring Blade, Rose Red Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon Sweet Pea Felt Flowers, Crop-o-dile, Sticky strip, Mini Glue Dots, SNAIL

The box was my own design. I simply scored a 12x12 piece of designer paper at 1 3/4", 5 3/4", 7 1/2", and 11 1/2". I then scored a 1 3/4 from the bottom and trimmed off some off the top. I scalloped the edge and put the box together.

The pen was fun to cover. I just cut a piece of DSP that would fit and sticky stripped it down. I then added the ornament for fun. I used my Big Shot to cut out flowers and used them as background layers for the bookmark and accent on the little notepad.

This is a great gift for a friend who reads!

What's a gift without a card? Boring! So, I had to make a card:

Stamps: Fox and Friends, Birthday Greetings
Paper: Rose Red, Whisper White, Taken with Teal, Chocolate Chip, Apricot Appeal
Ink: Taken with Teal, Rose Red
Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Texturz Impressions Folder, Flower Layers with Leaf Bigz Die, 1 3/4 Circle Punch, Lacey Edge Punch, Rose Red Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon Sweet Pea Stitched Felt Flowers, Corner Rounder Punch, Chocolate Chip Corduroy Button

I love using white as background color, so I ran it through the Big Shot with the new Texturz Impressions Folder, which I love. I used the flowers again to make accents for my stamped images and layered them up! To anchor my images, I added a thin strip of Chocolate Chip at the top of the ribbon and an Apricot Appeal punched layer at the bottom for extra cuteness!
