Here we are at Day 2 of Sneak Peeks!  I hope you've enjoyed the peeks so far!  Today I have a couple of projects for you!  The first uses the newest in Doug's Adorable Abodes Collection.  It's called Lakeside Lodge and it was concepted by our very own Jami and illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink line.  Lakeside Lodge is perfect for Father's Day, retirement and relaxation!

I've created a little manly tote using this set.  I thought it would be nice to tuck a gift card into.  I followed the Totally Totebag Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers to create this box.  Once assembled, I stamped and colored the images and attached them to the box and added some filler. 

My second project today uses the Father's Day DigiThe Father's Day Digi is FREE with the purchase of any May Release Bundle and there are several to choose from.  The Digi is not being offered for sale.   You will download both an open line image and a 2nd pre-colored image for super fun, quick cards and projects.  You will also be able to download an inspiration sheet showing all of the projects created by the Baker's Dozen this week.  Be sure to check out the Bundle Options on the Specials page on Release Day, Thursday.  I used the Frame It Up 1 Die in coordination with this digi as well as papers from the Simple Stories Awesome Collection


I hope you've enjoyed today's peeks!  Please stop back again tomorrow for more!  In the meantime, you can visit the rest of the Baker's Dozen for more inspiration!
