Good Saturday afternoon.  I don’t know about you but I am so glad it’s the weekend.  This past work week seemed longer than usual and I came home tired every night.  I’m sure you all can relate.


Have you had a chance to check out the new Susan Tierney Cockburn floral and garden die sets by Sizzix?  You know how much I love making flowers  and especially roses.  My project today was made using the Flowers Mini Petals set. I am in love!!!!!!!!

I cut out the petals and leaves and formed them using the new Sizzix Accessory Tool Kit.  I assembled the rose following the step by step instructions found here.  Here are a couple of close up views.

I thought this sweet rose was pretty enough to stand alone in a decorative double matted frame using the Accent and Label set and Classic Square Die set.   If you would like to see step by step photos of how I create my frame you can check out my double matted frame tutorial.

I have several more of Susan’s flower die sets so keep an eye out for more projects over the next several days. If you are like me you are going to have a growing wish list.
