My favourite new stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalogue is The Open Sea stamp set (p18 mini). I used the set to make this Book Gift Box with the Well Worn designer Series paper (p129 IB&C). I based my layout for the front of the box from the Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge CCMC180.
For the map of the world, I first gave it a quick colour in using inks then covered it in crystal effects. Here is a close up look:
