Flower Shop Window Box FREE TUTORIAL

Woohoo!!!!!  It's finally my turn to share my PREVIEW PROJECT for the Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection 2013 Edition!  On Create with Connie and Mary, I have a FREE TUTORIAL for everyone on how to make this fun Flower Shop Window Box!  I'm also offering BLOG CANDY on MY blog today…a drawing for a free subscription to Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection…just by leaving a comment here today.   If you are a winner and have already subscribed, we'll apply your win to the Fall Collection.  Winners will be announced tomorrow.


But, today is the LAST DAY for the Early Bird Price on our Summer Collection subscription!  We start tomorrow.  So make sure you sign up to see all the great projects at $19.95 US…a $5 savings off the regular $24.95 US price!  For over 24 projects posted daily for 4 weeks, you can't go wrong…that is way less than $1 each!


I can't tell you how excited I was to see this project come to life, even better than I had pictured in my head!  In fact, I liked it SO well that I decided to move it from one of the projects for subscribers only…to my Preview Project so EVERYONE can see it!  But, I promise…the Summer Collection is FULL of projects that you will love, that are great for gifts or class projects!  I can just see giving this as a get well token, a little birthday gift for someone special, or a welcome to the neighborhood gift!  All kinds of uses!


Can you tell what I used under the Natural Composition DSP picket fence?  If you said one of our Tag a Bag Gift Boxes, you guessed right!



So as a reminder…

Wow…love the project Connie.  What a cool way to use the new packaging kit.  You've fired my imagination to come up with a Christmas version as well as this lovely Summer one.   Thanks for the inspiration…and the chance at a lovely bit of blog candy.  Crossing my fingers and toes.   Hugs – Jean
