Avonlea Paper and some projects

Yes, I know I haven't posted anything since last week.  I've been really busy this week with back to school.  Yesterday was my oldest daughter's first day of Grade 3.  She was so excited when she got home because her BFF is in her class.  This year she is in a split class, 2/3.  Jaymee is taking French Immersion and really enjoys it, but each year her class size gets smaller and smaller which is why they split her class.

Anyway, now you know why I've been MIA.  So on with my projects.  I have 3 projects to show you today all using the Avonlea Paper.  I also used Smokey Plum Cardstock which works well with the paper.

This first project is a cute box which can be found on page 74 from the Artiste Cartridge, and assembly instructions on page 57 in the Assembly Booklet.  The flowers can be found on page 54.  

So now onto my next projects, I cut a little gift bag that can be found on page 79 of the Artiste Cartridge, with assembly instructions found on page 63 in the Assembly Booklet.  I thought it looked really cute without any decoration added to it, so I left it as is.  Then I took the My Creations Card Box which can be found on page 132 of our current Idea Book, and covered it using the Smokey Plum cardstock and Avonlea Paper.

 I added some Grey Sparkles to the front flap to add some fun detail, and some Clear Sparkles in the center of the flowers.  The edges are inked with Slate Ink, one of the 6 NEW colors now available.  The edges of all the paper is also inked using the Slate Ink to give it that antiqued feel.  I really love how this box turned out.

If you would like to make any of the above projects and would like more information you can contact me or you can shop with me online.
