Hello Everyone!

Welcome to My Craft Spot's Spring Stamp Release Party Sneak Peek #4

All week long, the My Craft Spot DT has been featuring Sneak Peeks from ONE of 5 NEW Stamp Sets. Then on Saturday, March 31st, we will have a Stamp Release Party Blog Hop! There will be TONS of prizes along the way, so you won't want to miss it!

Today's stamp set is Tiny Tags!

ALL stamp sets will be available for purchase on Saturday, March 31st!

For my FIRST "Tiny Tags" Sneak Peek Project, I went with the "For my Sweet friend" and "You're so sweet" sentiments.

These Tiny Tags are soo much FUN! And an absolute MUST HAVE!! Kimberly designed each sentiment in the "Tiny Tag" Stamp Set to fit inside a Tiny Tag stamp. How cute is that?! 

I've seen a few Carrot Patches in SVG formats and was inspired to make my own using my Cricut Expression. I started by making the "patch" using the Cricut Freshly Picked and Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridges.

To  make the "Fence" I resized the "Flower6" Planter's Box(pg.50) from the Cricut Freshly Picked Cartridge to 1.806"w x 1.972"h and 3.847"w x 1.972h and welded two of each size using the Cricut Craft Room. I then made a "Grass Box" using the Grass Border(pg. 78) from the Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge.

The "Carrots" are actually the "CakeBox"(pg.126) from the Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cartridge cut at 5-1/2".

For the "Carrot Stems" I took some of the My Craft Spot "Spring Moss" Crinkled Ribbon and made a triple-loop bow. I centered it with an "Apple Green" Devine Twine - available at My Craft Spot - button and added the "Tiny Tag" Sentiments.

Each "Carrot" was filled with Jelly Beans, but it could easily fit several pieces of candy - M&M's, Hershey Kisses, Dove Squares, etc.

I added a sign cut from the Cricut Freshly Picked Cartridge stamped with the "Happy Easter" Sentiment from the My Craft Spot "Happy Easter" Stamp Set also being released this SATURDAY.

Here is a quick look at the back of the "Easter Carrot Patch".

I hope you have enjoyed my project for My Craft Spot's Spring Release Party Sneak Peek #4.1. To see more "Sneak Peeks" of the "Tiny Tags" Stamp Set - available for purchase SATURDAY, please visit My Craft Spot Blog. You don't want to miss it!
