16th Birthday Favors and Banner

A quick follow-up to the album posting: 16th Birthday party favors are made using the We R Memory Keepers Punch.  Easy and quick to use.  Popped up computer generated embellishments were also quick to make.  These favors match the Birthday album posted 11-28-16. See album posting for paper details and source.
On addition, a banner was made to also match both the favors as well as the album. Banner was easily made using the We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch.
Rosettes made using a strip of 12" long decorative paper, scoring 1/4" all the way: fold and connect. hot glue helps to secure to the banner.  Alphabet die used is a Sizzix Bigz Alphabet series.
Cottage Cutz die used to be the "separation" between the name and letters. A scallop punch in decorative paper is used for the background.
Number die is from Papertrey Ink:

Celebrate You Marci Project Kit

This project is from the May 2015 Club La-la Crafts Kit. Unfortunately, these complete kits which included designer paper are no longer available but you can still purchase the monthly kits with a few options - see this link here. Dies included in this kit are Celebrate You Word Die, Balloons Die Set, Fancy Label Die, Numbers Die (set of 10) which are all now available in the La-la Land Crafts on line store.  The Stamps in the included kit: Celebrate You Marci and Time to Celebrate which are now available in the on line store. This month's project included a decorate gift bag, a card, and a Birthday Box shown here"
Here is a closer look at the gift bag 5-1/4" x 8-5/8" (to the top of the bag) x 3-3/8".  The turquoise tissue was also included in the kit contents.  Gift bag is already printed with multi color dots. 
On the bottom left band sits the birthday cake stamped, Copic colors used from the kit instructional sheet. Birthday cake is popped with foam squares and sits on top of a 1/4 cut Doily.  
The tag: 3" x 4" actual tag size.  Stamped Marci is on a 2-1/2" circle, popped with foam squares.  Balloons and stamped message on the flag are also popped with foam squares.  1/4 part of a Doily is behind Marci.
Next Project: a 6" x 6" card..................card base is vanilla. The Numbers Die Set included in the kit are randomly positioned to make the background. 
Here's Marci colored using Copics. Colors used are from the kit instructions.  She is popped with foam squares.
Bottom right corner:  Using the Fancy label Die cut twice to achieve this effect.  The strip is scored with "lines". 
Card inside: embellished with Vanilla card stock die cuts:
Third and last project from this kit: Project is a box that opens from the right side.  The front is a ribbon wrapped paperboard "O"............very clever to decorate the "O" in this way.  Celebrate You Marci is popped and sits on a white paper Doily.  Those are silk flowers which match the Turquoise Grosgrain ribbon. This box top is triple matted, popped, then sits on top of another triple mat.  Box top is very sturdy with all those layers of paper.  The tag peeking out is actually inside the cover.
Here's Celebrate You Marci. She is colored based on the kit instructional sheet using Copic pens.
Side box view:
Tag pulled out from behind the front cover:
Box back: LOVE the Fancy Label Die used here to personalize a "made by" handwritten note.
Right side box opening: it has a magnetic closure:
Open the box to reveal:
On the right inside front cover is that removable tag which is exposed from the front. 
Here's a closer look at the pocket: see how the Fancy Label Die is cleverly used. The "Celebrate You" is die cut multiple times to have that chipboard look. 
Here is a closer look at the insideof the box:
This trio of projects were enjoyable to complete.  Thank you for stopping by today. have a crafty day.

On the top left corner of the notebook: the Tabs Border die is cut twice in two colors, with adhesive rhinestones.  Button and tied bow embellish the top corner, too.  The "hello" is cut twice: offsetting for a shadow effect.  Add some scattered sequins here, too.
