By the Sea Summer Picnic
I love spur of the moment summer picnics and  we have lots of beautiful beaches here in Minnesota. When my children were young we went often.
I've combined the Confetti TIEF (Embossing Folder), with some ovals cut using the new Layering Ovals Framelits. The pretty starfish paper is the By the Shore Designer Series Paper. For this picnic I made some vanilla cupcakes with pink frosting. See my Textured Frosting Technique Video for more details on the frosting. The cupcake pieces and greeting label are all cut with the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits set.

Wine Box 1
When I saw some cute wooden wine boxes in a craft store, my husband told me he would make me some, so I took him up on it. I thought it would make an awesome 3D Craft to share. I used a wash of vinegar in which I soaked a steel wool pad for a couple of days to get a weathered look.  I think it should have steeped for a few more days, but of course I didn't have any more days! I used Stazon ink and the Tuscan Vineyard stamp set.
