At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Doodle Pantry as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I took delivery of a very special item last week.My DH paid partly for it as a gift as it was my birthday earlier this month.I just had to take the opportunity to play with it using the fabulous Float Yer Goat by Doodle Pantry.As you get papers in the set,along with images and sentiments,it seemed ideal for this type of project!Brilliant value for money too 🙂

This is what I got 😀





It’s a Big Shot Plus!And as it was only £15 more I grabbed one with the Starter Kit.Only because,for me,the dies and A4 embossing folder look so useful.(Yes,it still has the protective plastic on the top handle.I’m leaving it on for as long as poss!)

I started by printing the patterned paper from the set onto A4 cardstock then cut out the box using the die.Easiest box I ever made 🙂 Cut some the tag die from kraft card,cut the sentiment using it too but trimmed it to fit inside the tag by hand.Also die cut the scribble flower and scalloped edge to decorate.I did use a different tag die for the pre-coloured version of the goat,using the same method as before.A button,twine and dew drops – voilà!Mission complete 🙂 Am going to fill this with some sweet treats for my DH as part of his Father’s Day pressie.It’s good to get ahead 😀

Image,Patterned Paper,& Sentiment : Float Yer Goat by Doodle Pantry
