I've been busy trying to use the stamp sets that I purchased from the January-April Catalog that are retiring this month. One of the sets is Friendly Gnomes. This gnome stamp set coordinates with the Gnome die set from the Holiday Catalog. I love that I can get more use out of that die set. This card is one of the ones I used for my February Customer Thank You cards. I used our blending brushes to add a bit of green to the label and some … [Read more...] about Friendly Gnomes
Happy Friday! This past Wednesday, I shared a beautiful card using the Hydrangea Hill Suite of products. You can see that card here. I really liked the design of the card, but wanted to do a different version. Using one of the pattern papers as inspiration, I recreated the card in pinks. I also changed it from a vertical card to a horizontal card. In purple or pink, I think these hydrangeas are so pretty. Do you ever copy your own … [Read more...] about Pink Hydrangeas

The boxes are a nice size for some special Easter treats. Making treat boxes like this is very simple. All it takes … [Read more...] about Happy Easter!
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
