2. Soon to be released: On Display Tin Insert die - allows you to create an insert to gift earrings or necklaces and has awesome words "To/From" in different fonts to decorate the front

Here is my project using these dies along with the soon to be released stamp set: Small Packages that has the perfect sentiments for all kinds of occasions thru the year:

 I love these photos taken by one of my dearest soulsister friends of our family when my parents were in town. I want to use this for our December Holiday Cards so I made a layout using these photos. I used the DoodlebugDesigns: Frosty Friends paper collection which was the perfect papers to coordinate with the colors of our dresses in the family picture - how perfect!!! I used the Pockets and Pages Essential collection (to die cut the pictures and the designer paper I also used the Mini Borders above the pictures.
I also used the new Pockets and Pages Medallion Showcase and P & P Banners with Bonus die that has the word "Dec" die cut on it. Love these dies - it makes it so easy to write journal entries, cut out pictures in fun patterns and create easy layouts!
