New Beginnings at PanPastel UK


Where are the weeks going?  We are more than half way through May and after a prolonged winter, we now have the plants flowering and some bedding in our pots and baskets, but still very little sunshine  It's one of my most favourite times of the year and as the new challenge at PanPastel UK  is 'New Beginnings' I have interpreted that as the time for planting out and beginning new perennials and crops in the garden.


These little seed packets were die-cut using an old spellbinders die and PPs used to colour them in.


The caddy box is a Sizzix die, cut in chipboard and coloured and stamped over Maimeri gesso with PPs.


Some die-cut letters and coloured flowers finish it off.

Your Creativity Store is our regular sponsor and will provide a PanPastel starter set as the winner's prize.

Have a wonderful Sunday and hopefully some creative time for yourself.

Take care.

Wonderful!! Love that caddy (never seen that dies before, can it be used with the big shot? and which die did you use for the seed packets?) Sorry for the questions, but I have an idea floating in my head and these dies would just fit the bill.

This is fabulous Brenda and would make a lovely gift for a gardener to store seeds in. Love the way you have decorated it too. Hugs, Anne x
