Welcome back to Day 2 of our Sneak Peeks! Do you like the new images so far!? Hope so cause I'm ga ga over them.
Our next girl is named after the real Minako's oldest daughter... Harumi! Harumi (or Ha-chan) is so cute! This stamp kinda looks like her, so I thought it was a good fit. Gosh, we haven't seen them in so long! The girls must be so big by now!
So you've all seen those cute Target mailboxes found in the dollar bins right? Well, you can get them right now cause they only come out during Valentine's day! I pretty much bought out the supply at our local Hilo Target, but I see that they've replenished their supply, so you can still get them. Yay!
I decided to make one for Valentine's day and used the new Doodlebug Designs paper to cover it. I love how Doodlebug papers go so well with our images! Here's how I decorated the door.
And here's Harumi! Had to break up the look so I added a scrap paper to the bottom and then some glitter tape by American Crafts at the seam. Also used the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment by Island Scrapbooking.
Here's a better look at Ha-chan. This was another image I had asked my sister for... a girl lying down. For some reason I envisioned a girl on her back, but I think I like this pose a lot better! You'll see how versatile she can be in some of my other projects.
And here's the other side with the flag. After I covered the mailbox and decorated it, I glued it to a glass candlestick holder. You can get those at the dollar tree in the mainland, but I lucked out and found them at Ace on sale in Hilo.
When you open up the door of the mailbox, there's a surprise!
I just cut up some acetate I saved from old packaging and adhered them to the inside cover. Then I added punched pieces to each acetate piece to give the appearance of it floating. The sentiment is by Mama Elephant! I love that company.
And what's a mailbox without Happy Mail! I used the WeR Memory Keepers envelope punch board to make a small envelope. Then I cut up these little ATCs by Authentique. The envelope paper is by Doodlebug. Seriously... if you don't have that envelope punch board you really need to get one. Just go on You Tube and search Envelope Punch board and you will see why.
OK more candy time! If you would like a chance to win Harumi, just do the following:
