Can you believe it’s time for Sneak Peeks again?  This month we are introducing two new Pocket & Pages dies, perfect for your scrap pages or cards!


See the adorable border of stars?  That’s part of a new die set, called Skinny Mini Borders and coordinate perfectly with your cards and/or Pockets & Pages projects!  I die cut the star border with a new card stock color, Dijon…such a yummy, fall, color!


There’s also something new this month…Punchables!  Punchables are pre-printed Circle Word Art that are circle words printed on cardstock that can be die cut or punched.  In the picture below, you can see I used “Love” with the picture of my daughter.  




Here’s a close up of the two new Pockets & Pages dies, Banner w/Bonus and Medallion Showcase.  The picture of my husband and oldest son was great with the Banner die, as it was masculine enough for my boys.  I used another Punchables “Memories” in the Medallion Showcase and love the “blue ribbon” border!


My second Sneak Peek today involves this cute little gift tin!  Okay…I am such a HUGE fan of the Little Bits dies and how cute are these little silverware pieces?  This is Little Bits Silverware and that fork is the one that kills me with its 3 tiny tines!  I made a Thank You gift tin, inside we’ll include a gift card.  Do you have grandparents, a neighbor, or friend that you’d like to treat to dinner?  Do they watch your kids, or are they just great people who deserve a night out?  Ha!  You see where I’m going with this!


I used Small Packages, which is an amazing set of stamps that have a nice variety of sentiments, all of which coordinate with Tin Topper (new die) and work with the tin!  I embossed the background with Zig Zag and thought it fit well with the theme.  I cut a scallops square diagonally for my “napkin” and placed my silverware on top.


For the sentiment inside, I used In & Out Thanks and crossed out the “I” and replaced it with “We”.  I added a cute little flower and will place the gift card inside.
