My first project today uses the new Party Monsters set!  Party Monsters was designed by Emily Burger for the Embracing Grace line.  It's a full size set of 14 and it's as adorable as the first set of its kind, Love Monsters!!
I used the Heart Favor Box Die to create this cute little monster box.  Remember how I created a tall box using three of these die cut boxes in THIS POST??  Well, this time I only used 2 of these die cut boxes.  The steps are the same, but you leave out one box.  (If you're interested in seeing how I attached the boxes together to make a longer box, follow the THIS POST link above for the tutorial complete with pictures!) 
I also used the Curly Border Die as well as the Pennant Border Die on this box.  The monster was colored with Copic markers, cut out and mounted on the box with foam tape.  The sentiment was stamped on white cardstock and then die cut using the Frame It Up 3 Die.  I added some white filler to the box and it's ready for a little treat!!
My second project today uses a new die in this month's lineup, the Dial in Style Die!  This die was designed by Nancy McKinney and it works perfectly on a card like I've done here, but you can also die cut a small notecard keeping the crease intact if you wanted a cute little card!  I cut and piece my phone so that I could have different colors on it.  The sentiment is one from the NEW Let's Chat set that you'll be hearing more about later in the week. 
I stamped the sentiment on a piece of paper die cut with the From the Heart Frame Die and cut in half. 
I hope you've enjoyed today's sneak peeks!  Don't forget the You Take the Cake Contest!  You can read all the details on Taylor's Blog!!  To see more peeks of today's featured products, please visit the rest of the Baker's Dozen!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you back here tomorrow!!  ;)
