SO what did you think of the reveal? I can’t believe its over. I doesn’t feel real.

Pretty fabulous stuff huh? I couldn’t get into the forums at all. Insert sad face. I would have loved to chat it up with all of you. Oh well. That what happens when you get a bunch of PTI starvedwomen on one site right-LOL!

If you wonder which stuff is mine-it was posted under gallery administrator. Just a last minute glitch. Im sure it will be fixed soon. Im sure you figured it out anyway, but just thought I’d let you know all the same.

Wait till you have the new things in hand. The ribbon is to DIE for! Seriously. The colors are gorgeous. I can’t wait to play mor with the new colors.

I noticed my friend Tracey Cuccia, and Elisabeth Neumann got an honorable mention! YEAH! Cyber hi-5 girl!

Congrats to the winners and other honorable mentions. I never know HOW Nichole can pick from all the amazing samples she must get. AMAZING.

So speaking of samples here is my Just Hatched project.

Feel free to ask any ?’s. I will edit to answer any here.


This is my Candy Carrot Box.It is suppose to look like the perfect Candy Garden!Just pluck a candy carrot from the “ground” and you have the perfect treat.

When filling these “carrots”, the possibilities for a themed garden is endless.

This box is a great size. You will notice that I stamped a border, using an image from the Polka Dot Basics set. The box has a matte finish and takes the ink beautifully.

I used various versamagic inks on the project. Kept it clean and SIMPLE!

I stamped my sentiment in versamark onto celery cardstock AND vellum cardstock. I them embossed with white EP.


I used a hobby blade to cut out the center pieces, so that the vellum would be seen through the green overlay. A cute way to use the sentiment.

Because my carrots stick out over the top, I put my lid underneath, then decorated with wide grosgrain ribbon

I covered my insert with a celery cardstock, to look like “grass”. Just measure the insert, then trace the holes on back of piece, use the 1 3/8 circle punch-DONE!  I moved the egg hole insert, up, and adhered with redline tape.

For the carrots-


I cut down disposable frosting bags, to about 6 inches. I used the polka dot images to stamp the tops of my bag’s with white stazon. I used my Poppin Acetate technique found —>HERE. It really helps take those PLAIN bags, and give them some POP!

 I quickly brushed on Pebbles Inc. shimmery pastels, while StazOn was still wet. This made the bag tops co-ordinate with the colors of my candy, and border.

When I filled the bags (I used tropical Skittles) I then punched a scallop circle from a Apricot piece of cardstock-so from the top, the appeared to look like carrots. Tied with celery ribbon and done.
