Happiness Comes from the Heart - Magnolia-licious May Mini Magnolias

Hello.

Happy Wednesday!  It's the day of the week that the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog dedicates to the 'Wednesday Mini Magnolia Challenge' where the design team showcases the Mini Magnolia Stamps images, along with a few Stamping Bella images thrown in every now and then.  It's my turn to participate in this week's Wednesday posting.

I was looking for a smaller card size to feature the Mini Magnolia Stamps on and was thinking that I would do a Diamond Fold Card.  But I came upon a picture of a Double Diamond Fold Card on the internet instead and decided to give it a try.

Here's the card I ended up with.


And yes, the card is small...or at least smaller than my usual size.  It measures about 6 inches wide from tip to tip, but only under 4 inches in height.

This card features multiple folds.


When the card is spread out, you can see all the fold lines here.


A closer look at the Mini Magnolia Stamps images being featured.

Seed Box - Magnolia-licious Spring Blog Hop

Hello.

Today, we're kicking off our Spring Blog Hop at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.

If you're already taking part in the Blog Hop and have arrived here from Suzi's blog, then you're right on track.  If you didn't come from her blog then you just may want to start at the beginning, HERE.

My project for this Blog Hop is a Seed Box.  I love gardening and I've created this box to store my seeds.



For this gardening scene, I cut out each of the Tilda images.


The inside of the box is divided into 3 compartments:  the 2 larger ones for seeds and the smaller one for seed stakes (they're actually large popsicle sticks).


I've made three index cards to separate the seeds into 3 seed-type groups:  vegetables, herbs and flowers.


A closer look at the Magnolia Stamps images being featured.


- Tilda In the Garden from the Pink Lemonade Collection 2014
Seeding Tilda from the Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011



- Watercan Tilda from the Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011
- Tilda Picking Carrot from the Sakura Collection 2015



- Virgo Tilda from the Zodiac Collection 2015
- Tilda Loves Flowers from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012

Magnolia Stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, e-mail Diana and I'm sure she'll be happy to bring it in for you.
And other-brand stamps that the store carries include Stamping BellaWee StampsWild Rose StudiosSaturated Canary and Crafter's Companion.


There are two ways to win during our Spring Blog Hop:
- Tulip Scavenger Hunt (see the picture below).

Both winners will win a $20 Gift Certificate from the Magnolia-licious store.

How to play:

2.  Leave a comment on DT's post during the hop.
3.  Count the number of images of the 2 tulips in each of the DT post and send the total to Cathy Lee at cathylee.co@gmail.com using "Spring Tulip Scavenger Hunt" in the subject line.
