Believe Set !

A project I kept promising to post and just now getting it done.
A birthday set for a very special person.......My Sister.
It was my sister's birthday awhile back and I had started this set for her ,but didn't get it done in time for her birthday.I kept putting it off to finish, not sure why, but when I saw the Believe set that Julee had designed ,I knew how I wanted to finish off this set.So I dug it out and waited for the set to arrive in my mailbox.
My sister is a Survivor and I knew she would love this.She follows my blog and always telling me how much she loves the things I do.I knew she would adore and treasure this.
Because she is following my blog, that is why I didn't post it when I had it done. I wanted her to see it first before she saw it on my blog.
Needless to say , it was way late for her birthday and I postpone mailing it till I
mailed out her Christmas gifts.
I know I am bad with mailing out cards and things on time, but she forgave me
when she saw it,lol.
She did get her Christmas gifts on time!
Complete Set

Birthday card

Journal and inside front cover.
I started out first with this journal, knowing that she would love to have one from one of the comments she had said to me awhile ago.
I found this journal in the $ bin at Michaels along with the rest of the things I used for this project.I've had this stuff for awhile, as I am always going thru the
bin for things I can alter for a later date.The journal had red on the front and back and I covered it using some matching cardstock, using one of my labels nesties.
I stamped the flower stamps many many times , cut them out,and layered them.Added some glitter with a pen to finish them off. Pop dotted them.
Set Of Cards +Card Purse Box
I made this purse box following a tut on SCS found here>>>>>>Card Purse
I modified it a bit bigger to hold my cards.I made the box out of a matching file folder that I got at Michaels, plus used up some of the smaller pieces on the cards.I also took apart the box the pen came in as it was red and used it for my template to make a box to match for the pen.

Card Purse + Pen

Deck Of Cards + Magnets
I found a set of playing cards and some magnets to match and decorated them
up using the yummy flower stamp in the Believe set.Added some ribbon.

Close up of the 4 cards that she can give away( which I doubt she will,lol)
Book Mark with Clip

The book mark was made using 2 pieces of the file folder , stuck together using some score tape.The folder was very sturdy and the 2 pieces made a very nice bookmark.
I also found this black clip which I used to attach to the bookmark.
I cut a circle from some of the scraps left from the folder and added to the clip.
After I had all this done , I wonder how I was gonna finish all of this off to showcase it, to mail this to her , she lives in NL.
So I went searching thru my stuff and I found this white box I had purchased from Michaels a long time ago, gotta love Michaels. It was so long I forgot I even had it,lol.
I covered it with another file folder, added some ribbon around the box and finished it off, using nesties labels cut from matching card stock.

Everything fitted inside the box.
My sister was totally in love with it.
Paper: SU cardstock & File folder from M's
Stamps: Verve " Believe"
Accessories:Offray ribbon ,Labels nesties, HA pearls, journal, pen, playing cards, magnets,box, clip, all from M's.
Thank you for stopping by , I love to hear your comments.

Happy New Years to everyone!
