God Jul

Today i would love to show you a "gift set" that includes a card with a pocket to add some gift cards and a altered tea box. I have made those projects for Magnolia Ink but they have not not made "the cut" into the magazine. Actually ... from all the things i have submitted - that this set was my favorite.



All the stamps used here are by Magnolia.. and since the task was to show only Magnolia i have added the sentiment "god jul" by hand on the little punch outs. I HATE my handwriting.
Stamps: Magnolia "Winter 2009" Collection
Papers: My Mind Eye "Laundry Line"
Embellishments: Prima Marketing, Stampin up Eyelets, Lace by Carole
Tools: Martha Stewart "Doily Lace", Nestabilities

Haya Claudia.
It's been a while that I've been active in blogland. Been to Barça, have a new job and I even got the flu ;)
But I missed your blog so I just wanted to say that I'm completely back again and I love the project that you've made

Hughs,
Jolanda

Christine said...

I love this little set. I can't imagine why they wouldn't want to include this in the magazine. It's gorgeous. As soon as I saw it I thought "How does she come up with all of these cool ideas." I absolutely love the way that you open it. There is so much wonderful detail. and your coloring is spectacular. I love that we have gotten a little sneak peek of the new collection coming and also glad that we were blessed to see your beautiful work on your blog instead of the magazine.
Have a wonderful day!
xoxo, Christine
