How about some Sweet and Sour?

Hello again!  I'm back with some fun projects I created from a mix of scraps and new toys!  The UPS man came yesterday with my package of sneak peeks from the upcoming Holiday Mini and a few more items from the big new catty.  Of course, I couldn't resist.  I had to try out some new stuff! 

It's amazing what you can do with 1 sheet of cardstock.  I created the pillow box and 3x3 card above using an 8 1/2"x 11" sheet of Pretty in Pink paper.  Then, I dressed it up with the Sweet and Sour DSP, which is just adorable!  What I like most about it are the colors, which happen to include my current favorite palette of pink and orange.  I didn't use any of the orange DSPs this time, but rest assured you will be seeing those in the near future :)  My favorite part of these 2 quick projects is the die cut trim in the pink DSP.  It's a brand new Bigz XL die called Tasteful Trim that will be available in the Holiday Mini starting September 1st.  Here's an individual look at the 2 projects:

For the pillow box, I also dressed it up with the new seam binding that will be available in the Holiday Mini - it is so nice and shear and great for tying bows!  As for the butterfly - how cute is that punch?  I resisted so long getting it and finally broke down.  The pearl embellies are so fun, too.  Kinda getting addicted to those as well!

Hope you like the sneak peek.  That's it for now :)  I'm gonna try and make more projects this week for you guys {and for me, too!}

I am thinking that I am going to have to get some Sweet and Sour! I am also becoming addicted to the pearls and rhinestones! My girls are actually using them as earings! :)
