Autumn/Winter Mini Blog Hop + Blog Candy!!

Welcome to our Stampers Anonymous Autumn/Winter Mini blog tour! There are some fantastic new products released in this catalogue tomorrow (April 1st) and we’re going to share some of them with you.
You may have just come from Liam's blog, but if you are starting here, don’t worry … you can make the complete circuit just by following the links at the end of each post. There are 14 stops along the way, including one Special Guest Stamper (the FABULOUS Teneale Williams!!!!) and we hope you will visit each one to see the wonderful creations we have to show you!
At the end of each post there will be a link to take you to the next stop on the tour.

We are offering 2 lucky visitors the opportunity to win some ‘Blog Candy’ this time around - a mixed bundle of Stampin' Up! goodies! There are a few things you must do to be eligible and they are:
1. You must leave a comment on every blog in the tour. Please also leave your full name with the comment.
2. After leaving your comments, you need to email Kerry and inform her you have done so and would like to be in the running for the blog candy.
**Blog Candy is available to residents in Australia only. SU! Demos are allowed to enter. Entries Close 5th April at midnight.

So grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy the tour!
First up is a little set of Love Notes in a Scallop Envelope Box. I've used the Big Shot to make a box out of 2 Scallop envelopes. It's the perfect size to fit love notes in:

Here are the seven love notes, using all 7 animals from the new "Fox and Friends" set (sooo cute!):

The colours are Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Rose Red.

Next up, I wanted to use some of the new In Colours. Yes, we have 3 new colours to play with now! Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo and Soft Suede. I've also used Old Olive here for my Christmas version. I've stamped the new Medallion stamp in Versamark and added a different centrepiece on each one:
Did you spot the new sentiment stamp too? LOVE it!

My final project is a bit Easter-y. I've made a box using the Top Note Die. I made a quilted pattern on mine using strips of DSP (Tea Party) before running it through the Big Shot. This box can be made using just 1 A4 sheet of cardstock:
Here it is open, with some Easter Treats inside:
Well, that’s all from me. I hope you left your comment to be in with a chance at the Blog Candy. Now you’re off to enjoy the wonderful creations of Juliette
