Christmas in July!! I’ve gotten a look at the new August to December catalog and am patiently waiting for my pre-order to arrive. What better way to prepare than to start creating using what you’ve got already. The cards above are made with the retired Most Wonderful Time Product Medley – which is still currentlyContinue reading “Most Wonderful Time of the Year”

In Symmetry Thank You

Sometimes a regular sized Thank You just won’t do! This card is a 5 1/2″ square card bursting with the fun colors and designs of the Sweet Symmetry Suite. I started with a 5 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Night of Navy cardstock which I scored at 5 1/2″. I adhered one piece of DSPContinue reading “In Symmetry Thank You”

Daisy Garden in 4 Colors

The Daisy Garden stamp was one I wanted right away when I saw it in the new catalog but when I opened it up and set it on my craft table to use – my mind kind of went blank. This stamp set is probably great for those crafters that color – I like toContinue reading “Daisy Garden in 4 Colors”

All for Baby

I love to pair grays with colors when I’m making cards. In this card, I’ve used Blushing Bride and some of the new Gold & Rose Gold specialty paper. With a gray and white background, I think the pink onesie really stands out. (I like to use this technique a lot). To make this card,Continue reading “All for Baby”

Expressions in Color Paper Pumpkin Alternative

One of the new features of Paper Pumpkin is illustrated, step-by-step, project-by-project instructions. I think this is a fabulous change and perfect for anyone who wants to dip their toes into the inky water of stamping and paper-crafting. I think the 3 card projects in June’s Paper Pumpkin (Expressions in Color) are gorgeous as isContinue reading “Expressions in Color Paper Pumpkin Alternative”

Adapting to what was most certainly the mostContinue reading “The Adventure Begins”

In Color Poinsettia Petals

I’ve got the winter holiday bug. I can’t help it – I was in the craft room and Evening Evergreen caught my eye. I thought of one of my favorite sets from last year (that carried over – yay!) – Poinsettia Petals. Then I thought of the In Color Ombre Gift bags – and IContinue reading “In Color Poinsettia Petals”
