Here is my first project:






I just fell in love with the Cottage Wall Desinger Papers and Cottage Garden Stamp Set. I put together this very cute little Card File Box that you could use for recipe cards as a gift to someone who bakes.
Products Used:
Card: Orchard Opulance, Rich Razzleberry
Papers: Cottage Wall
Stamps: Cottage Garden
Inks: Rich Razzleberry
Punches: 1 3/4" circle punch, scallop edge border
Ribbon: 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain - Rich Razzleberry
My second project is a Gift Box with 4 Gift Cards






I love the opportunity to make 3D items as a break from cards. They always make great little pressy for someone that you just want to give a small gift to.
Products Used:
Card: Orchard Opulance, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: White Craft, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry
Paper: Cottage Wall
Stamps: Cottage Garden
Punches: Small & Large Tag, Eyelet Border
Tools: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder
Ribbon: Certainly Celery Grosgrain
Other: Playground Designer Button
I had so much fun playing with the new products from the Autumn/Winter Mini as I am sure you will also.

There were so many things to choose from, I had trouble picking what to use for this Blog Hop. I hope you have left your comment to be in with a chance to win the "Blog Candy". Now you're off to enjoy the wonderful creations of Meighan Wheller. Thanks for stopping by!
If you happen to lose your way, here is a list of all participants.
