Hi, and thank you so much for joining us!

When I received my kit, I absolutely feel in love with the colors and embellishments.  Within my kit, I received an awesome Memory Protectors Flip Flaps 3x4 and after looking at it I knew exactly what I wanted to use it for...

I turned the protector into a gift card holder/shaker! I cut a piece of vellum a bit smaller than my Memory Protector and placed some scor tape to the top. I then carefully slid the vellum piece into the protector and carfeully placed some Butterfly Kisses and Spring Fling sequins inside and then sealed it down. This helped with keeping the sequins from falling out and still left an open seal to place my gift card on the other side.

(this is the back of the Memory Protector Flip Flap)

The other great thing about the Memory Protectors Flip Flaps 3x4 is that they come with an adhesive strip.

Now onto my next project.

I started with cutting some tags out of some White Daisy card stock with my cricut and the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. I then took some CTMH Slate Ink to stamp my sentiment to all of my tags with the You Mean the World to Me stamp set. On 2 of the tags I stamped a border from the One-Way Borders stamp set to add a little design with some CTMH Pear Ink.

I simply continued with cutting different sizes of paper strips from different patterns using the Blossom Paper Pack, added some Glacier Extra Thick Twine and finished them off by adding some embellishments using Spring flair and  Butterfly Kisses sequins.

Hope you are leaving inspired and once again thanks for visiting.
