Sweet Nora

Happy Sunday, all! I am sharing a couple of projects made using Whiff of Joy's up coming April release. This is an exciting digital release with many cute images, a few new dies and a sentiment stamp set. I am sharing a project made using the lovely Sweet Nora with you.


She is cute, huh? =)


I made this one sheet gift box to hold some yummy goodies that I sent to a dear friend. You can see the video tutorial of this fun gift box here by the uber talented Beate Johns.


After printing Sweet Nora on PTI's Stampers Select White, I cut the image out using a Petite Ovals Large die. It's then colored and matted with a piece of patterned paper using a Petite Ovals Small die before I stitched the layers together. The patterned paper is from the Love Bandit collection by Bo Bunny Press and the sentiment is from the Strawberries set by Flourishes.

I also posted a tutorial over at the Whiff of Joy Inspirations & Tutorial Blog today and here is a peek of what I made.


Fun, no? I made these little pocket sized sketch/notebooks using two of the soon to be released digital stamps. I modified my current one (Please go to this link to find out the link to the original tutorial by Kirstina Werner.) to pocket size. It's really easy to make. Please check this post to find out how I made mine! =)


This adorable image is called Prima Ballerina Nora. I made a boo boo on stapling this one, so I'll be using this one.


This one is Ben Playing Guitar. He is so handsome! =) This one looks better, so I think if any of you don't mind getting/using it. I'll give it away with a few goodies. =) Just a little thank you for all your support. I always hesitate about giving away things that I made since I don't think they worth anything, but this one is at lease useful. =) The inside pages are blank.

EDITED: Here is a photo of the candy that I put together. It includes a few of my handmade crochet goodies, some buttons, a jar of Perfect Pearl, a roll of ribbon and three bundles of mulberry paper flowers.




All the new digital stamps will be released on April 1st at the Whiff of Joy Stamps Store.

That's all for now. Have a happy Sunday! =)
