MCS Cross Stitch CD Samples

I was asked to make samples for the My Craft Studio POTW on Create & Craft tv. So far I have seen all 3 cards and the stationery set, but not the notebook or pillow gift box.
We were asked to do projects with a given image set from the Cd. Mine was this beautiful hibiscus. I used fancy folds on all of the cards, the first time i'd tried any of them so i'm really pleased with the way they turned out.
A5 size Side stepper card with matching envelope.The decoupage is printed out onto pearlescent paper.
I changed the colour for this easel card and added a few fabric flowers, lace and gems.
I'm not sure what this fold is, I saw it in a magazine and thought it looked interesting, basically it's a gatefold with the corners folded in.
This stationery set took a bit of working out as I didn't use a template at all. I printed the note paper and envelopes as well as all the backing papers to match.
The pillow gift box and notepad were quick and easy to make but quite useful little items.
