PTI February Blog Hop

Hi there dear friends!! I have been very sad this week and missing my sweet Lily, so I haven't been in a very crafty mood. I finally decided it was time to break out my crafty supplies and I didn't think I was going to make it, but here is my submission for this month's PTI Blog Hop. I love the challenge this month:

This month we decided to dedicate the Blog Hop to scallops! We want to see your best use of scallops, of any sort, on a project! This can include scalloped borders, offset-scallops, stamped scallops, scalloped mats, scalloped frames, layered scallops, scalloped tags or anything else you can dream up! You can use dies, patterned scissors or even circle punches in a row to achieve your special look. We are looking forward to seeing all of your amazing creations!

I knew that I had to play with my new button goodies and decided to make a little gift pocket.
Here's my take on the challenge:
Vintage Gift Pocket
and here's my first button card!!! I just love these stamps and dies!!!
and here's a close-up of the scallops:
Supplies Used:
Websters Pages Sweet Season Patterned paper
PTI Stamps and Dies: Button Boutique, Friendship Jar, small scallop
PTI Buttons: Sweet Blush
Martha Stewart Punch
Died Seam Binding: Memrie Mare
Prima Floral
Lace from my stash

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Simply Beautiful Kristii! This might be a silly question, but is that I die set that you used for the "for You" stamp? I was looking earlier today for a smaller die for a stamp and that would work perfectly. TFS you beautiful creations.
