Blue Ridge Mountains

This Wednesday I am off to do a site visit in the lovely city of Asheville, NC. I've never been and am excited to see this beautiful place I've heard such wonderful things about. I have two vendors who are hosting my 5 day visit, so I wanted to give them both a thank you note (with a gift of local Oklahoma grown peanuts and peanut brittle from a friends family farm). Because the Blue Ridge Mountains are there in Asheville and I will be treated to some time there in the mountains I wanted to incorporate that scenery in my cards. One of my vendors is a guy, so I didn't want it too feminine looking I pulled out my brayer.

Let's all be honest for a moment...unless you are Michelle Zindorf, you're probably intimidated by this lovely little tool, as am I. But I braved it anyway and this was the result!

Paper Pumpkin

Stampin' Up! introduced Paper Pumpkin in March--a great program with the beginner or busy crafter in mind. With a monthly subscription, Stampin' Up! will mail a project to you once and month for you to create in 30 minutes or less! The Welcome Kit (your first month joining) are the cards below--you get materials to make four with instructions to make them. I changed two of mine up and added some variety. Below are the cards I created. Since once was duplicated, I only posted pics of 3.!

It's not too late to sign up to join the monthly Paper Pumpkin program. Head on over and you can sign up! Don't wait too long--you must sign up by the 10th of the month to get this month's project!

Simple Cards with Scraps

With some of the left over scraps from my Friends Canvas kit, I made these cards. Clean and simple and the best part is that they were so easy--all of the color are stickers from the kit! I just embossed the border and stamped the sentiment. Super easy!

Chalkboard Cards with Canning Jars

Friday night we are holding a Women's Event at our church. The theme is "Friend of God" and the decor (there will be a dinner) will be an old time country fair with burlap, chalkboards, canning jars and all things trendy right now. I was asked to create table tents for the tables.

The first set of cards I made were with the "Perfectly Preserved" stamp set and coordinating Embosslits and used the "Woodgrain Textured Embossing Folder," all of which were introduced in the Holiday Mini Catalog, but are still available for purchase.

The second batch of cards I made were inspired and CASEd (Copy and Share Everything) from Becky Roberts' adorable mini chalkboards using the chalkboard technique. Don't these just make you want to spit bananas?! They rocked my world so much I just had to share them with you. :)

Friends Canvas

I recently held a Friends Canvas Class where each person got to create this colorful canvas. the canvas focused on the "Razzleberry Splash" Scrappin' Kit which is loaded with color! Some of the gals opted to change the word "Friends" to "Sisters" and they turned out so cute.

Rosette Banner

Rosette's are another very trendy decor piece to add some flair to your latest function or celebration. This Happy Birthday rosette would make the perfect focal piece for a birthday party.

The Designer Rosette Bigz XL die is the star of this project with a 10" diameter! Add some accent pieces to the center to make it suitable for your event.

Betsy's Blossoms

This is the second project that we made at the Open House last week. It features the other two new In-Colors: Raspberry Ripple and Primrose Petals (does that make you think of Hunger Games? ha ha, J/K)

I love the bold statement that the circle image makes. And just a hint of the "Floral District DSP" was used at the top to coordinate the new In-Colors with the Tangerine Tango.

Everything Eleanor

More flag pennants! They are everywhere people, and my projects are no exception! :) This card is one that my guests created at my Open House last Friday. It features three of the five brand new In-Colors. They are so bright and cheery, you just can't help but smile when looking at them.

The floral image is from the new "Everything Eleanor" stamp set, which is a set that has a vintage vibe to it, but you could pull off trendy projects with this stamp set as well, if you use some creativity.

I placed one of the small pearls as an accent to the center of the floral image. Just an extra touch of classy.

Happiness Scrap Layout

Another easy project that features the "Floral District Designer Series Paper." This DSP just lends itself to easy designs and fresh layouts. It also highlights one of my go-to punches right now, the Blossom punch, which is very trendy and current.

Bright Bird

I hosted an Open House last Friday night at my home to show off the new catalog product and give my customers an opportunity to see projects created from the new product and make a few themselves.

This was a card that I had on display that features the "Besty's Blossoms" stamp set and the delightfully cheerful "Floral District Designer Series Paper."

The card design is a CASE from Heather Summers' card, but I changed up the colors and stamp sets to make it my own. Pennants and flags are really popular right now--you see them everywhere, so I love that this card incorporates that.
