MichJay Challenge #2 AND a BRAND NEW SARAH KAY PREVIEW!!!!

JayJay and I had a special request for our MichJay Challenge!! We were so thrilled with the response we got from our first challenge HERE - and then the people from asked us to work with something special this time, and once I saw what they asked up to work with I was really excited to add an extra challenge this month!! I just adore Hearts!! And this is the cutest little 3-d heart box, super simple to put together and I think just perfect for anyone!
Now it was hard to photograph, I need to add something to hang things from in my photo tent! Anyway I cut out the template (again from ) from I believe My Minds Eye papers, the only name I can find now on my scraps is TresJolie - I think that was a line of theirs.
I used the backside solid and cut a smaller heart, then again the pattern side for a stacked even smaller heart, that is all sewed together with a zig zag stitch. The lace is sewed on around the edge of the box before I put it together. I added a small piece to the sides as a handle, and then a band across the middle of the heart to have my image sit on. One of my MIL crocheted flowers matched PERFECTLY, with a jewelry spacer mini brad and two Martha Stewart frond leaf punches. The sentiment is from Heidi Grace, an epoxy sticker on white card stock then cut out.
Ok... I can hear you squealing... yes THAT IS A BRAND NEW SARAH KAY IMAGE from Stampavie!!!!! How adorable is she??? You will be seeing previews from all of the Stampavie DT the next few weeks and they will be appearing in stores really soon!!!!! She is so new I don't even have her name yet - but I was just dying to color her up and use her as soon as she arrived!

I hope you liked my MICHJAY Challenge, I adore the 3-d heart box - You now must visit JayJay and see her box, it is just so precious! Then why not join the newsletter/blog and set the template yourself!! Super easy and Super cute!
Have a great Sunday!
HUGS and -

Wow Michelle, this is just TOO CUTE for words, and I have to admit, this new Sarah Kay image is darling. I'm so skeptical of Sarah Kay stamps, because I have about 6 of them now that are so sticky and just don't ink well. They never did. How was this new one for inking? Did you have any struggle with it?
Thanks for sharing your gorgeous heart box. =)
