My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party~Day 3

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!
Hello Everyone!
Welcome to day 3 of My Craft Spot's Stamp Release Party!!!
Each day we will be giving you sneak peeks of 5 NEW stamp sets and 3 NEW metal die sets and then finish the week with a FUN blog hop on Saturday with prizes at each stop along the way!
Sound like fun??
Through out the week we will also be incorporating the Big Words metal die into our projects.

Today, we are showcasing our projects created with the Scrapping Life Calendar stamp set and Scrapping Life Cards metal die set.

Here is my project:
I made a cute little birthday bag for a friend of mine who has a birthday coming up. It is the perfect size for the fun jewelry I bought her :)
The bag is cut at 5" from the Artist cartridge. The patter papers are from We R Memory Keepers-Simply Spring collection. So many fun papers in this pack! I cut a small panel of pattern paper and then followed with this cute frame and arrow that is part of the Scrapping Life-Cards metal die set. The frame is embossed with the swiss dots folder for dimension.
The balloon is cut at 2 1/2 from the Create a Critter cartridge. I stamped the adorable Peachy Keen face with the Sweet On You stamp set, added rosy cheeks, freckles and glossy accents to the eyes. I also tied on a little bow to the balloon using Pink Sorbet twine.

I stamped the sentiment on the frame using the Banner Sentiments stamp set. The flowers are cut at 2 1/2 and 3" from the Art Philosophy cartridge. I inked the edges with TH Victorian velvet and added a little gem to the center.
For the tag, I used the Lacy Banners metal die and stamped the mo/day on it (which is her birthday) with the Scrapping Life-Calendar stamp set and with foam tape adhered it on the bag. I added a small Velcro piece to the bag for so it would close nicely and then finished with a bow using Buttercup and Petal Pink crinkle ribbon.

Here is a second project: 
I found this darling Gift of Tags box idea HERE where there was a tutorial and just had to make one. I thought it would make such a fun gift.....I mean who doesn't need gift tags, ha?  

I cut the tags from the George and Basics Shape cartridge.  The 2 on the outside of the box are cut at 4 1/4 which I also did a little sewing around the edges for a fun look. Then I cut 12 at 3 3/4 along with the shadow of the tag for the tags that go inside the box. 

The papers are from MME-Playful Poises. For the center of each tag I used the Tiny Doilies metal die and stamped the sentiment with Stamping All Around Spring.  The backside of the tags also has stamped to & from using the Always & Forever stamp set. I added fun ribbon and tied on some Ivory Jute String to each tag.
On one side of the box I added a metal frame from SU and stamped the Happy Birthday with the Postage Stamps  and Tickets stamp set. 
I stamped the cute calendar and the month of August with the Scrapping Life~Calendar stamp set and the little arrow is from the Scrapping Life~Cards metal die.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
