Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge

I made this project for the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog Hop Challenge. The challenge was to make a Post-It Note Holder and gift box using directions from Bridget Owens. You can get the directions here.


Stamps: Tilda With Lamb (Magnolia)
Ink: Memento, Copics
Paper: Tracy Porter pack (Colorbok), Certainly Celery (Stampin' Up!)
Embellishments: Prima’s, rhinestone brads, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Spellbiners scallop circle nestabilities, purple trim from Walmart, large circle brads.
The timing of this project was perfect. My very dear friend has a birthday today. I did not know it was her birthday until our group meeting last night. However, I had brought this project to show, and was able to give it to her for her birthday. So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRENDA!

One thing I have seen others do that I really like is changing the layout for the Post-It Holder and the Gift Box. I ended up using the same layout for both, but really like the ones that are similar but different. Oh well, next time.

These are the Copics I used to color Tilda.

Keep your fingers crossed for me that I get the Magnolia-licious prize. Have a great Tuesday!
