MDSM11 Apple Picking

Good morning, Everyone!  Time for another MDS Monday challenge.  Tara has a good one for us, to use the following sketch and stick to one digital kit.

I've mentioned before that using one kit is the way to go with many digital pages.  The coordinating papers and embellishments make designing so easy.  So I pulled up my list of digital downloads, and The Write Stuff II was the first kit I came upon.  I gave it a whirl, and I think it came out pretty well.

I've had an apple bushel on my to-do list for a bit, so here was a perfect opportunity to give it a try.  I used the File It Fun label 8 punch, and I kept cropping and stacking layers to create a little bushel container.  I also applied the paper rip option to the background paper layers.

Here's a little video I threw together on creating the bushel.

Stamps: Perfectly Preserved; Paper: The Write Stuff II; Color Palette: Old Olive, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Creamy Caramel, Soft Suede; Accessories: The Write Stuff II kit, Early Espresso baker's twine, More Mustard button, File It Fun label 8 punch; Font: Clipper Script.

Thanks for stopping by!

Such a cute page, Heidi - That basket is darling! Thanks for sharing the video on how to make it. I have a few apple picking pics myself, so I'm going to have to give this a try!

I just purchased the MDS 2+ and would like to know if you have to purchase another download to get the punch to make this cute little basket....I LOVE IT. I looked all over and couldn't find it and would love to know what ( if anything ) you have to purchase for this basket....
