Here's what Altenew has to say about this amazing Project Kit...

"Nothing is prettier than a garden rose! Enjoy our Craft Your Life Project Kit, an exciting monthly package that is sure to get the creative juices flowing! Featuring a 6x8 stamp set, coordinating die set, as well as a stencil and embossing folder to fit the theme, this project kit has almost everything you need to start crafting. Just add ink and cardstock, and you'll be good to go! This kit features a stamp including two beautifully drawn roses with three layers each and four leaf outlines. Leave these unfilled, or add color with the stencil set! One stencil acts as a coloring/mask stencil, one includes bold stripes, and the third contains three words that go with the sentiments in the stamp set. Finally, add texture with the 3D embossing folder for a stunning project!"

Time to share what I've created with this lovely Project Kit! 


First up, this pretty card duo...



Oh how pretty!!! 
I can't decide if I'm more smitten by this month's Embossing Folder or the Stencil Set - 
both are really effective at enhancing my stamped Garden Roses!
So gorgeous! 

 Let's take a closer look at each card...


Hello beautiful, indeed! 
Those triple layered Garden Roses are sheer elegance! Florals are always my favorites!
I stamped mine with Permanent Black Crisp Dye Ink for the outline, & Red Cosmos Pigment Inks for the layers. I used the Ink Blending Tool-Small & Frosty Pink Pigment Ink to apply the diagonal stripes stencil. Simple, but so effective! 

Here's a better look at the embossed card...


What a beautiful birthday card! 
The sentiments in the Garden Rose Layering Stamp are so good!
But it's the detail in the 3D Embossing Folder that really impresses me - total WOW factor! 


Simply stunning!!!

The Craft Your Life Project Kit: Garden Rose isn't just for card makers either - 
it's perfect for memory keeping too! 

"Friend" - 8.5 x 11inch scrapbook layout 


Oh how dreamy & divine!
Here's a closer look...


What fabulous title work!
Can you tell that I love the stencil set included in this month's Project Kit? ;)
So awesome! 
And of course, the Garden Roses were beyond words & breathtakingly beautiful!


SO.much.gorgeousness in one little kit! 


I really hope my projects have inspired you!
