DT Project 2 Featuring My Minds Eye ....

Hello everyone, I'm back with my 2nd DT project featuring these wonderful goodies from My Minds Eye.

I started out by making a simple Birthday Card. Cover white cardstock with a sheet of Coredinations in black, then simply cut and layer co-ordinating papers of your choice. I used "Admit One" and "Picnic" to create the rosettes. The "Happy Birthday" quote is from Funstamps UK. The embellishments are from the Kraft Fun - "Everyday Fun" Decorative Brads set & "Everyday Fun" Button pack. The kisses stamp is from the "Everyday Fun" Stamps set.

I then covered the front of a size #5 Manilla Tag with more of the "Admit One" paper, distressing the edges with Distress Inks (Walnut Stain). Using various Ideaology pieces, Swivel Clasp, Jump Rings, Philosophy Tag, Baubles to create a Handbag Charm as the birthday gift. The locket is from my own stash, which has decorative brads adhered on the inside and the outside (adhered using Glossy Accents) from the "Everyday Fun" set.

The reverse of the size #5 tag has been stamped with Archival Inks (Jet Black, Coffee & Manganese Blue) using stamps from the "Happy Days" set & "Everyday Fun" set.

Well that's all from me today, I do hope you liked the projects. I will be back at the weekend with another project using this kit. TFL x

(Edited to say that my next project will be on the 19th Dec and not this weekend)

Oooh, missed this post while I've been away Gillian! Glad I came back to scroll through the projects for this month so far as it's a fabulous set. The layered card is great and I love the rosette and how you've used the bunting stamp on the reverse of the tag. That locket is really lovely and a touch of luxury that goes beautifully with these papers.
