Enclosed: Apple, Tucked In: Thank You, Lunchbox Love (plus Black & White All Over and Super Swoosh)

Hi there! Welcome to day two of the April Papertrey Ink countdown.  

I'm here today to share a few samples using a few of this months new products... Enclosed: Apple, Tucked In: Thank You, and Lunchbox Love (all by Dawn McVey). With a little bit of Black & White All Over pattern paper collection and Super Swoosh dies thrown in too.  

Check it out...
Here's a trio of projects using Dawn's new product.  I hope I've done her proud.
First up a sample of all three sets... Enclosed: Apple, Tucked In: Thank You, and Lunchbox Love.  I die cut the "thanks" apple from black cardstock and layered it over a bit of watercolor smooshing.  The watercolor effect was applied onto one of the framed pattern paper included in the Black & White All Over pattern pack.
I trimmed the Tucked In: Thank You sentiment and used portions of it on the cover and the inside.  Finished the card off with a couple cute butterflies to match, they are from the Lunchbox Love set.
Here's an adorable little lunchbox note created using Enclosed: Apple die and Lunchbox Love stamp set.
Stamped the happy face onto polka dot pattern paper and topped the note off with a bit of twine stapled into place and then tied.
Decorated the inside to match.
The Lunchbox Love set include a tiny heart which I stamped onto stripped pattern paper in a color combo of pure poppy, berry sorbet and harvest gold.
Topped it off with twine, a sentiment and a happy face.
Now, onto a bit more Black & White All Over and Super Swoosh.  I like to call this pattern the window pane look.
This "with love" die comes in two parts, makes it easy to create a second look by staking the words.  A strand of twine was stapled into place (through all paper layer to hold everything together) using my tiny attacher and then tide into a bow.

Well, that concludes today's look at Enclosed: Apple, Tucked In: Thank You, and Lunchbox Love. Just remember... all that you have seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning April 15th
