I'm back from my December hiatus just in time for the Stampin' Addict's Spring Catalog Blog Hop! (I didn't really plan to take such a long break from blogging, it just sort of happened.) This is stop #6 on the hop. If you're hopping in order, than you've arrived here from Rhonda's Stampin' Bunny Blog and her fabulous projects with the Secret Garden Bundle. (She just might convince me I need that bundle too.) If this is your first stop, no worries; all the blogs are linked together in a loop so you won't miss a thing. (And if you happen to be looking at this post after December 30, all the posts should be deep linked so you can still follow them.) If you do get lost or want to chat about the hop, visit Stampin' Addicts!

This kit comes with a nine pre-cut and embossed tags, enough precut flowers and brads to embellish them, and a wood-mounted "Just for You" stamp, all for $12.95 US!

I will be sharing more details about each of these projects on my blog next week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. So you will want to come back and see how each was made. First a card:
For my next two projects, I wanted to think "out of the box." When I looked at those cute tags, I could see candy wrappers. So that is exactly what I did with them:
