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.

Happy Graduation

I'm really behind in posting projects on my blog. :-\ Yikes. I'll spare you the excuses and just dig right in...

This was a graduation card that I made for my SIL who graduated from college this year. So proud of her. This card is basically an exact CASE of this card that Mary Fish created. It was just so perfect that I didn't change anything (even Tammy's school colors!).

It features the adorable owl punch.

Saying Good-bye Crazy for Cupcakes

My niece had her first birthday this past week and we celebrated with her on Saturday. I made this simple birthday card for her. It features my favorite birthday stamp set, "Crazy for Cupcakes," which will be retiring on May 31. I added a little Dazzling Diamonds on the mini cupcakes to give it some sass!

Happy 1st Birthday Miss Alyx!

Saying Good-bye Medallion

The Medallion stamp set has been one of my favorite large, background stamps since it was introduced a few years back. I have used it on a lot of projects: cards, calendars, coasters. It's just an elegant stamp and has been a popular "go-to" stamp for me.

This was an easy card to create and got me out of my comfort zone and got me to use my embossing powder and heat tool, which I haven't used in a very long time. I simply stamped the image with VersaMark onto white card stock, then poured clear embossing powder over it and heat embossed the image. Grabbed a sponge and added some color around the image and viola! A finished card with just a touch of ribbon. Easy peasy! :)

We're saying good-bye to the Medallion on May 31, so be sure and get yours today! This card also features the Concord Crush In-Color which is retiring May 31 as well. If this is your favorite color to create projects with, hop on over and stock up on card stock, ink, and ribbon!

Saying Good-bye Upsy Daisy

The "Upsy Daisy" stamp set is such a great set for spring, and I've found to be an excellent stamp set for the Shadow technique (stamping a dark color of ink, with a white Craft ink slightly offset from the first stamped image). This stamp set is waving good-bye to us on May 31. It's been a wonderful stamp set for projects and I'll miss it. If it's your favorite stamp set, be sure to get your own set today before it's gone!

Sympathy Card

One of my sweet friends lost her beloved doggy, so I made this card for her to let her know I was thinking about her. Being a dog lover myself, I know how difficult it is to lose your animal. They are a part of your family and it just hurts so much. :( This card features the "D is for Dog" stamp set, which is retiring on May 31. It also uses the Poppy Parade In-Color which is also retiring May 31. If this is one of your favorite colors to create projects with, hop on over to stock up on card stock, ink and ribbon!

Mojo Monday

Happy Monday to you!

Today's project used the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. This was one of the easiest sketches to replicate and I spent no time at all piecing this card together. I used the 1-1/4" square punch to make perfect, even rows. Then to make lining up the squares a little easier, I simply cut a piece of card stock down to 5" x 3-3/4" as a base to adhere the pieces together like a puzzle.

The butterly and sentiment is from the "Cottage Garden" stamp set that will be retiring on May 31, so be sure to head over to my online store and pick up your set today before it's too late!
