Embellishments to Die For...And a Video!

I recently acquired some new goodies... some AMAZING new dies and stamps to be exact. They are all exclusive to the Simon Says Stamp store and I could hardly wait one second to put them to the test....

And I thought I would let you have a little look-see as well...

Oh how fun!!!
I just can't get over how many possibilities there are with these goodies...
In fact, I had to keep creating...

So.... I made this layout about my daughter's love of our trampoline...
Full of these fun flowers...
And then I used some collaged hearts I created some time ago and layered them up with more of those handmade embellishments to create a double page layout/art piece of sorts for a dear friend's wedding present.

He had two poems read at his wedding, once of which I had the privilege of reading. And I wanted to create a piece for them using these words...

Here is the left side:
And the right:
I just love how these turned out and I hope they like them too!
Before I sent them off in the mail, I needed a special card of course...
The remaining leftovers were perfect for whipping up a quick card...
I hope this has inspired you to grab some of these must-have dies and get your craft on!

Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!
