March is here! Our winner for the entire March Release will be announced later today! So be sure if you haven’t yet, pop on by to our designers to enter yourself to win our ENTIRE March Release in the post below this one.

We have an amazing collection of coordinating items this month with Spring in mind.

My company focuses on the “complete package”. We work hard to offer coordinating products that are easily interchangeable with previously released products. We really enjoy being able to share the ideas and versatility each product holds.

Given the tough economy, we announced on the 27th, that as of today, we have now decreased our prices by 20%!

I may be a company owner, but I am really just like you. I’m a stay at home mom to 3 children, living on one primary income. I get to share what I love with the world and enjoy what I do. I KNOW how hard it can be to try to keep your family going, while maintaining your sanity through crafting, and be able to afford to buy some items without a lot of guilt! So after much debate I feel this change will help all our very valued customers 😀

So here is what we have that is NEW for MARCH:

We have released:

NEW! Pretty Packaging Templates

NEW! Pretty Impressions Stamp Set Singles

NEW! Pretty Printable Digital Paper Collection

NEW! Pretty Pieces Cut File

Also be sure you check out our  Pretty Package Collection, where you will always save 25%!

We’d like to introduce you to our 4 NEW Design Team members today!

We are excited to have them join our team. Each has a NEW project for you today, so please WELCOME them.  Also be sure you check out our entire team today,as we are each sharing some creative ways to use the *NEW* products for March as well!

Today I am going to share another fun project using our NEW! Display template.

This template can be used to display ANYTHING you want…

This template actually came about because I was going to a baby shower of a family friend and her theme was FROGS!

She was having a baby girl, and her entire room was purple and green with froggy accents. I ALWAYS have to stick to the theme and I even made the centerpiece as well, my very first Diaper Cake! Photos on that at the end of the post 😀

I used a fun embossed cardstock that was double sided. It was cute because the dots reminded me of the frogs skin. One side of the cardstock was olive, and the other a very pale green.

Perfect because it was just like the frogs skin. The inside being lighter, like the belly of the frog.

I added eyelashes to the frog eyes with a marker. Brushed on some chalk for the cheeks, and used a oval to draw on a mouth! ANYONE could do this!

I found a super cute handmade SOFT baby blanket on Etsy that was a frog, and I just HAD to get it for her. Once it arrived I was trying to think HOW I would package it up. As you know I am all about the packaging. THAT blanket sparked this entire template.

I rolled it up, and placed it into my cut Frog themed Display box!

The Frog piece COME WITH the template, so no need to try to make your own. A great box for boys too 😀 Or Princess & the Frog themed party maybe?!

I love how the frog hands are holding the little tag, and the feet are sticking out.

The tag was created using the Round Off © set, colored digitally, and layered onto a tag cut out of lavender using the Fine Finish © tag cut file.

I have to say it was a BIG hit!

Here is the gift set, completed

I used the Lil’ One-sie © cut file to create my card for the gift.

The rose is from our A Spot of Tea ©set, and the sentiment is from the Bringing Home Baby © set. Simple & easy, but OH-SO-CUTE!

As was the diaper cake I made, as requested for the centerpiece of the shower!

My very first one, I was SO PROUD of it.

My 8 year old daughter Amber helped by wrapping ALL the diapers.

I then layered them and wrapped them with my receiving blankets.

I made the little frog from cardstock., and placed her on top of the diaper cake with some pretty spiral ribbon I curled.

I added some ribbon, pearls, and some little ribbon flowers. In between the layers I rolled baby socks into “roses” and I wrapped them with tulle “leaves”, and added them to the layers.

NOTHING is GLUED! The blankets and baby socks are all usable, as are the entire package of diapers!

I bought a cake board that is basically scalloped silver cardstock. It provided a sturdy base and made it look more professional.

I was pretty happy with how well everything turned out considering I never made one before. People couldn’t believe I never made one before (yes giving my own horn a little TOOT!) I hadn’t had that much fun in a LONG time!!

I had also made the centerpieces, as you may recall a while ago

These flower pots used the Tending The Garden © 50 Images – Digital set!

I LOVE digital images because you can nix, match and resize everything to suit your needs, as I did here.

Filled the flower pots with the little “rose” baby socks. Just like on my cake.

This was the back side…same little frog as my cake topper!

I made 15 in all.

We tied balloons to the centerpieces as well.

It turned our really pretty.

I hope that got your creative wheels a churnin’!

I’ll be back to announce our winner for the March Release items.

Come back tomorrow because we will have many more fabulous project ideas for you all to try.
