Welcome Friends!
The time has FINALLY arrived!  We’re here and we’re ready to get hopping!  We’ve shared four fabulous days of sneak peeks with you and we’ve been as exited as we could be for the time when we could show you EVERYTHING!  If you’re a Stamp of the Month Club member then you’ve already had a look at the SOTM set.   All of these perfectly coordinated stamps are NOW available in the Peachy Keen Shop, and even better, you can grab all your favorites from the May Release at 20% off through the 12th of May!!  SWEET!!
Without further ado, we give you the Peachy Keen Stamps May 2014 Release!
PKSC-29 May 2014 Stamp of the Month

And here is my project that I made using some of these SUPER FUN new stamps!
I want to apologize right away for the pictures. It had been nothing but windy, rainy, and NO sun this entire week. So I did the best I could indoors for these pictures. 

I used quite a few stamp sets on this Survival Kit so I will list them all at the bottom. 
The box is cut from SVG Cutting Files Kawaii Lunch Box. I blew it up in my Silhouette software and made it quite large. The box measures approximately 5 1/2 X 7 1/4 inches.
I decorated the top by stamping all the elements and either glued or pop dotted each piece on. I used the new Raccoon Face and Head Assortment for the heads peaking out of the tent. Did you see that not only do you get the faces for the raccoons, but the HEADS too! I think that is so cool! The tent and trees were paper pieced and everything else was colored using Copic Markers.
For the inside of the box I added some fun stuff! I made a s'more's box, tube of sunblock, some tissues, and hand sanitizer. I created a band for the anti-bac and added the lightbug. I made a tag to add to the sunblock and added the lantern to the tag. I also made a mini kit of S'mores.

There was nothing wrong with the pictures. they presented your project very well. Love the idea of marking the items in the box as well as on the outside. This would make a great gift for somebody new to camping or a future boy/girl scout or anyone who camps really. Great idea. Thanks for sharing. this is one I'll be using.
