New Peachy Keen Kit of the Month Sneak Peaks!!!

Good morning! I don't know if you've been looking at the sneak peeks for the new Peachy Keen release - but as always - they are ADORABLE!!! On Thursday, you will be able to find and order them HERE. Today is my day to share a new sneak with you! Be warned...it is a LONG post! Here is my first card:
I started out with a cut and embossed square using my Nestabilities. I paper-pieced the cupcake using the new April Kit of the Month, and used one of the add-on kits to add the candles. 
All the papers are from Echo Park's new This and That 6x6 paper pad - such pretty papers!  
I used some Tim Holtz distress ink on the edges of the card, and used a couple of Copic markers to add some extra color to the candles and the cupcake paper holder.
For the sentiment, I used My Creative Time's stitched oval die, then attached it with some Crinkle Ribbon, a bit of twine, and a button from Papertrey ink. I used a pop-dot to hold it down on the end, and also attached the scallop rectangle with pop-dots for dimension.
My second card also used the April Kit of the Month, and I added a face from my Wide Eyed Child Face Assortment.
Used Copic markers for the "coffee" and the rosy cheeks, then applied some Glossy Accent to the eyes, and "coffee" in the cup. 
Used some more distress ink, some papers and ribbons/lace from my stash, and finished off with a bit of bling, and some faux stitching.
And...my final sneak peek is actually the first project I made! My husband was out of town on business for a week, and when my girls and I went to pick him up from the airport, we took these to him! These new sets arrived in the mail that day - so I had to play with them right away!
The card is a 6x6 piece of Cosmo Cricket paper, folded in half. Makes such a fun size card! I colored up that ADORABLE clock with my Copic makers, stuck him to the card with pop-dots, and hand cut two banners for the sentiment. Finished off with some Baker's Twine tied around the outside edge. 
The milk carton was one of my first cuts using my new Silhouette Cameo machine (insert big squeal of excitement here!) - I LOVE how well this machine cuts. More on that later though! That number background is also part of the new release coming on Thursday! Isn't it great?!?!?!  Added some Baker's twine, sheer ribbon, and a sentiment from the April Kit of the Month. We filled it with some yummy snacks for him to eat on the drive home from the airport - figured he'd be hungry after traveling all day! 
Whew! Told you it was a long post! Thanks for sticking through it though (assuming you made it this far!) - and make sure to check back on Thursday at Peachy Keen for the big release!!! You will love it again - promise!!!
