Time flies

So I thought things were supposed to calm down after the holiday's??? Things seem crazier than ever!!!
So for this month's Guest Star Stamper at Papertrey Ink I have entered the two projects below. I am going to start with my favorite!
There's a story behind this card. So over the holiday's I joined Facebook as a way to reconnect with friends from High School. One of my classmates happens to now live in Kansas City as well. She was gracious enough to invite me to her home for lunch. We had such a great time! We could have talked for days. We weren't close in school, but I can tell we will be fast friends. She is a paper artist as well and had some treats for me....scraps of beautiful expensive papers. The beautiful pattern paper below is one of them. I love the color combo here!
Supplies: Stamps Papertrey Ink (Out on a Limb, Heartfelt Basics); Paper: Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy Cardstock), Cougar 80# White, Japenese Paper; Ink: CMTH (Cocoa); Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy), Whisper (Whisper Pink); Ribbon: Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy Luxe Satin)
This next project was a set of 7 DVD tins I created to hold note pads with a matching pen. Each set was unique, but this was one of my favorites because of the color scheme.
On the inside of the tin I created a pocket out of cardstock. It has a decorative pattern created using Guidelines. I have rolled up some pattern paper inside the pen so that it coordinates with the rest of the set.
Supplies: Stamps Papertrey Ink (Everyday Blessings, Guidelines); Paper: DCWV, Cardstock: Stash;Ink: CMTH (Cocoa); Other: Prima Paper Flowers, DVD Tin, Pen, Note pad (with .5" trimmed off the bottom)
