Yay, me! I managed to get my September Thank You cards out relatively early this month. I delayed posting the card so my customers that received one of these would get to see it first. This card uses the Country Lane Suite. This stamp set is a great choice when you want to practice your coloring with our Blends markers. The shading that you do with the flowers and leaves gives added depth to the image. You probably noticed there is no … [Read more...] about September Thank You’s
Quick post today as we have lots going on this weekend between soccer games, birthday parties, and everything else. Today, I’m sharing my card from last night’s downline meeting. Each month, my Downline group gets together to discuss what’s going onwith Stampin Up, do make & takes, eat dessert, and swap new card ideas. For this card, I saw an idea online using a monocrhomatic background and subtle colors that aren’t using associated with … [Read more...] about Remembering You…
I know Fall officially started a few weeks ago, but we are just starting to have a few cooler nights here and there. I love the pretty Fall colors that you see on trees, but we really don't get much of that here in SoCal. Anytime I want Fall colors, I have to make my own. But that's so easy to do with paper, stamps, and some dies. Today's card uses the brand new Corrugated Embossing folder. This folder makes the paper look just like … [Read more...] about Happy Fall!
On Monday I shared one of the two August Customer Thank You that I sent out. Today, I have the second thank you that I used in August for those that made more than one purchase. This thank you features the Falling For Leaves stamp set and coordinating Detailed Leaves thinlets die set. I love a good Fall leaf stamp set and this one does not disappoint! There are so many choices of leaf combinations between the stamps and the dies. This … [Read more...] about August Customer Thank You

Now that it's officially Fall, it's perfectly acceptable to cover your porch in pumpkins and hay bales. I love the bright Fall colors you see everywhere, but here in SoCal our Fall is typically 80's, if not 90's. It doesn't usually get quite cold enough to turn our trees to the bright Fall colors you see in other States. But, the leaves definitely Fall off the trees. Since the trees in my yard are still bright green, I've got to make my … [Read more...] about Break Out Your Plaid
Today I'm sharing a brand new product that became available August 1st and will be available only through the end of the month (or while supplies last). It's so exciting when we get these special limited-time releases. This stamp set has a variety of images and sentiments that will carry you through the year. We've got flowers, holly, and Fall leaves. Since Fall is right around the corner, my first card naturally used the Fall leaves. To make … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday – Blended Seasons
Remember all those leaves that I die cut a few weeks ago? This is the project for which they were intended. I made several of these Fall wall hangings for the Boutiques I was working this year. I knew I needed a bunch of leaves, but wasn’t totally sure of how many and in what colors. So, I die cut a lot of leaves, using up tons of scrap paper. I may have gotten a little carried away...I found the burlap canvases at a local store and covered them … [Read more...] about It’s Still Fall
