The first official day of Spring was this past Saturday. And with the recent Day Light Savings time change, I'm looking forward to longer sunny days. I love that feeling of the warmth on my skin as I sit outside on my patio in the evening. Today I'm sharing my Spring Sampler which is a mix of rain, birds chirping, and flowers growing. Our Spring in SoCal usually starts out rainy. I usually don't mind the rain too much. You've got to have a … [Read more...] about Spring Sampler

Sometimes when I'm working on a card, I can't make a decision on how I want it to look. For this card, I really wanted to use the new gilded flakes product. To adhere the gilded flakes, I used my adhesive sheet on top of the card stock, then die cut out the word "just", peel up the adhesive backing, and add the gilded flakes.

I can't explain... it just mysteriously happens. :) One of the prettiest floral sets in the January to June Catalog is the Fine Art Floral Suite. This Suite has everything... stamps, dies, pattern paper, acetate sheets, sparkly ribbon, and … [Read more...] about Fine Art Floral Suite

Today's card is super simple, but sometimes, that's just what you need when you're in a hurry. And I wanted to keep the focus on that cute paper and the tiny matching resin hearts. I'm still loving this tiny envelope die from the Snail Mail Suite. And those itty bitty pink hearts in the paper are just the cutest.

One of my favorite dies from the January-June Mini Catalog is this adorable mini envelope. The envelope is approximately 1.5 x 1" to give you an idea of the size. This envelope die is part of the Snailed It Bundle. Today's card is another slimline card. This card is 3.5"x8.5", which allows plenty of space for all those little envelopes. And if you haven't noticed the pattern in the pattern paper yet, all those mini squares are postage stamp … [Read more...] about You’ve Got Mail
