I have 2 projects to show you today. My first uses the newest Moka Girl... Moka Madelyn! This sweet girl was named after Taylor's own Madelyn, who celebrates her birthday in September! This set was illustrated by Nancy McKinney.

I stamped and colored her with Copic markers. I also pieced her present. Then I fussy cut her and popped her on top of my layout. I used one of the buckles from the new Basic Buckles Die Set and put a ribbon through it. Here's a look at the finished inside:

My second project features the new Dial in Style Dies. Don't you just love that big telephone? I created the fun background (at the top of the card) using the new Circles Big Background stamp, which I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Kraft cardstock and colored with Copic markers. I also used one of the new stamp sets that will be featured on Thursday. It is called Let's Chat, was concepted by Jami Sibley and illustrated by Emily Burger!

I tucked in a little tag inside a Kraft bag. Below is a look at the tag.
