Especially For You - Magnolia-licious 'Love Is In the Air'


Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog is kicking off its first challenge of 2015 with the theme 'Love is in the Air.'  To get complete details of the challenge and how you can join in the fun, visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  Also have a look at what my DT teammates have created to inspire you.  

I've made this 2-drawer gift box and mounted a small easel card on top of the box.

I made the box high enough so I can fill the drawers with some Mozart Kugeln and Ferrero Rocher chocolates...yummy!

If you're interested, you can the tutorial on the paper roses HERE.

Close-up of the Magnolia image I'm featuring...

- Tilda With Cross Necklace from the Special Moments Collection 2013
In keeping with the love theme, I've replaced the cross in her necklace with a heart-shaped rhinestone/bling.

The stamp for this image and other 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, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.
Check out also the stamps from Wee StampsWild Rose StudiosCandibeans and Saturated Canary.
Magnolia-licious also carries cutting dies from various companies including Memory BoxPoppyStampsMagnolia DoohickeyWild Rose Studio.

The Memory Box 98373 Whimsical Flourish that I used is availabe from Magnolia-licious.  Have a look at the rest!
