I made a 7 x 7" canvas wall hanging for my nephew.

March's Fresh Baked Kit is entitled, "Sunday Afternoon" to match Webster's Pages 6 x 6 tablet called "Sunday Picnic" which is included in this kit. The clear stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop has images and sentiments to match the patterned papers because it was made exclusively for Paper Made Bakery just for this release! Everything is perfectly coordinated so you can just start making your cards or altered items.

The kit always comes with really fun embellishments, and this month is no different. The inspiration for my project was actually the 2" wide Maya Road Mega Bottle Cap. I was looking at it and it reminded me of the lens on my Cannon S95 camera, so I decided to paper piece a camera. I punched out a photo with a 2" circle punch and it fit perfectly in the bottle cap. I thought the camera was the right size to place on a small wall hanging.
I had previously purchased a finished canvas wall art at the dollar store for the purpose of altering it. It was cheaper to purchase a finished piece than a plain stretched canvas from the craft store. Go figure. I liked the green background color and the stitching already on the artwork so I kept that for my border. I just covered up the center image.
Since there were the stitched Xs on there, I decided to repeat the design. I stitched a row of Xs on my camera and also randomly added some to my title to tie everything together.
I used the stamp set for part of my title and cut out the main word with my Cricut on the lovely embossed Swiss Dot cardstock. I also used the stamp set to paper piece a kit to add some interest to the background.
The bows on the kite tail reminded me of a bow tie so I popped one on my nephew's photo. Hee hee. Just be creative and have fun with the kit. You'll be surprised with what you can come up with.
