Moxxie {Blog Hop}

Good morning! Is it really May already!? These months are just flying by! But if it’s a new month it means it’s time for another MOXXIE blog hop! I don’t know about you but I always look forward to seeing everyone’s amazing projects! The Muses always seem to pull out all the stops to create some amazing things!  Make sure you read to the bottom to find out how to WIN one of these fantastic NEW lines!!

For today’s blog hop, out of the three BRAND NEW awesome lines, I was given the new softball line- Fastpitch to work with.

 This one was a bit of a challenge for me because the extent of sports in our household are Soccer, Dance & Tumbling! So I wasn't sure what I was going to do at first but in the end I decided I wanted to show you different ways to use this gorgeous line!
What do you think? 
I love the colors and the designs on these papers! For the notebook I used a mini composition notebook and covered front and back leaving the original tape for the binding uncovered. I then inked up the edges with Prima Chalk Ink - Knotted Wood. Then using some of the awesome cardstock stickers that go with this line I, created a little banner and tied some linen thread onto the ends. To make them stand out a bit more, I traced around them with a fine dark brown pen. 
The flowers, I punched out with a couple of Stampin’ Up! Punches; I layered them and added a button. Then I used Moxxie’s Brown Alpha’s to spell Notes.
Such a cute little notebook to carry in your purse!

Now for my favorite! The cute little box! This turned out adorable!
I started out by taking some dark brown cardstock and cutting it down to fit the faces of the box. I then inked the edges with Prima Chalk Ink - Knotted Wood. Now for the really fun part! I followed this TUTORIAL for this quick and easy, but super cute flower! Then for additional ones I had some Stampin' Up! punches. I wrapped the twine around the box several times (this box opens from the top) and then spread it out to to draw more attention to the flower. 
I added some buttons to the middle of a few flowers and used a white pen to draw a few dots here and there. I also added in some cardstock stickers on the top. Now for the "Princess" sticker I cut apart a bigger sticker it was a part of. Don't be afraid to do something like that! :) Here's a couple shots of the top.
And what do we always need to do when we create such an adorable box!? Well, I always feel the need to fill it with chocolates! ;)
