There you have it! Another day of incredible inspiration! Several of the team members have already been talking about how they are going to be mass producing carrot boxes for class parties, get togethers with girlfriends, etc. What do you see yourself making them for? And those Cutaway Tags! Are you going to collect all four seasons? We hope you enjoyed everything today and we will be back tomorrow with even more to share!

    I LOVE this post and it makes me sad all at the same time! I wish so much that I had seen these AMAZING projects before I had placed my order a few nights ago. I would have ordered all of these stamps and dies. At least I can still enjoy looking at these beauties until I can order again. The team did an outstanding job showcasing these projects!
