As you can see, this is one fun kit! And, I want to share with you what I've created, so far, with it. I started with this menu board. I REALLY need on to keep me focused and organized, so picked up a frame and figured I would figure the rest of it out as I went along. As it happens, my kit arrived the same day I purchased the frame, and once I opened the kit I knew it would be perfect for this project. 
I had to keep the decorations minimal (and flat) since the entire thing is behind glass. So, the wasi tape was perfect, along with a couple of die cut flowers. 

And a close up:

Here it is, all ready to go:

Now, my second project was a layout. I used a sketch from the Studio Calico blog as inspiration and went to town working with the beautiful AC papers. For the envie, I wrapped with with twine and finished it off with one of the super darling SC paper clips. 

A close up of the title treatment:

I loved the design on the background paper, so decided to add some stitching:

 I told you it was going to be a busy blogging day! Now I'm off to do a little purging and hopefully (if I'm lucky) a little scrapping :)
