Hi everyone welcome to our May blog hop, for my first project I made this cute gift bag. The black part of the bag topper I cut out of black card stock using the largest oval framelit and the green is cut using the stitched labels framelits and the DSP is Share what you love.

My second project is a book mark, the cardstock is the new Pineapple Punch colour.  The Graceful Glass Designer vellum makes a perfect background.  I coloured the back of the vellum using Stampin'Up! markers, and then laminated it.
For this birthday card I used the new Lovely Lipstick card stock, the top of the card I used the Garden Impressions DSP, the lovely cream lace paper is from the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut DSP, I added some navy cord ribbon (which is retiring) in the middle. The sentiment is from the Painted glass stamp set and I used the Everyday Label punch and going around with a sponge dauber.  Flowers are made by punching out 2 DSP and 1 Vellum using the pansy punch (also retiring) and adding pearls in the centre of each flower.
My fourth and final project is a vintage style tag, loved making this one.  I used mossy meadows card stock (very happy this came back) for the tag which measures 3" x 6", I also sponged around the tag.  For the flower I once again used the pansy punch and sponged crumb cake using a dauber, when the ink dried I glued 3 together the 4th one I scrunched really well so it would stand up in the middle.  The DSP is also from Share what you Love, I sponged Crumb Cake onto a white doily.  The stamp set is the Hostess one Hand Delivered, instead of stamping the balloons I used the 1' circle punch and used the new In colour cardstock, Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Call me Clover and Blueberry Bushell, I added some glue and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on top. I finished off using gold mini sequins, Rich Razzelberry and  Gold 1/8''.

Hi everyone, I am sad to see this set go, I have just loved using the Magical Day Bundle.  It was fun making this cute journal. I laminated the cover, the 3 books and the 3 bookmarks for extra strength which is great for carrying around in your handbag and it wont get wrecked.  There are lots of tutorials for these journals and variety of sizes to choose from they can be easily adapted to what size suits your needs, this journal measures   11 3/4 x 61/2. I made the rosette using Bermuda Bay card stock and cut a scallop circle using the 1 1/8 punch.  Inside the front cover I glued on a post it note pad and added a 1/2 inch strip of unicorn paper and 2 cute little post it note flag size, these I purchased from a variety store similar to the $2 shops. To keep the notebooks closed I used the birthday mini binder clips. 
Pockets were placed on the front of each cover, 3 in total.  The picture above is the 1st booklet which I placed a diary I bought from Lincraft (you can pretty much buy them anywhere like the $2 shops).  I did not staple any of the pages from the dairy or lined pages so they could easily be replaced. 
The booklet above is the second one, I could not find any paper pads this size so I bought one of the school exercise books from Kmart and used my guillotine, I pulled the cover off and left the staples in until I finished cutting.  I placed the closed coverless book in first and measured 6 1/4 across and cut the excess off down the side then turned around and and cut at 7 1/4 this is the width so it opens like a book.  You can make them to any size that suits you. On the top of the page I added a piece of mermaid paper to pretty it up a bit.
I made a card using the Whisper White narrow card and envelope set and placed that in the back pocket.
And lastly I made these 3 cute book marks one for each booklet, these were also laminated.   
Blog hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one.  There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken lines. Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented Kate Morgan
