Create Kindness Kit...Time is Running Out!

There's just a precious few days left to order your own Create Kindness Kit.  This is a wonderful box full of 8 stamps, card bases and envelopes, a block, and ink.  Absolutely everything you need to create happy cards to share with those who need a lift.

My team is having an Operation Smile crop next weekend, so I put together a set of cards in a folder.  I paired the Create Kindness kit with the raspberry papers from Adventure Fundamentals.

After making a simple folder with pockets, I used Flower Market to make this fun flower on the belly band for the folder.

The folder holds six cards, and it is a lovely gift! 

If you are on the fence, don't wait too long!  This special sale ends on Friday!  These are the stamps and card bases that come in the Create Kindness Kit.

Thanks for popping in today!!

You Have My Heart

Does this little face make you smile?  This little great-niece of mine surely does have my heart, and it was a pleasure to work with these photos.  This is a layout that I made for my class at Convention.  I was all done making projects, but then these photos were posted on Facebook.  How could I not sit down and scrap these precious photos?

Whimsy Fundamentals were the perfect choice.  Thistle dots and stripes along with some canary accents, Artiste cuts, and glitter paper die cuts made this page go together easily.  This page is a treasure.

Thanks for stopping in today!

Hey There, Pumpkin!

I love the fall and everything about it.  The crunch of the leaves, the transformation of the maples and oaks, my flowering sedum and aster, and the cool nights.  Truly, it's such a wonderful season.  I feel like I say that about that about the beginning of every season, but maybe that's why I live in Minnesota.  The four seasons bring me so much joy!

There's a really cute new stamp set in Holiday Expressions called Autumn Wishes.  There are two patchwork pumpkins and two sentiments in this set.  I've used all those stamps to make the next two cards.

Now I made both cards the same way, so let me tell you what I did.  I stamped the pumpkin twice in Goldrush and once in Saffron.  You will use one of the Goldrush pumpkins as the base.  Cut out the center 3 layers of the Saffron pumpkin and adhere to the top of the base pumpkin.  Finally cut out the center section of the 2nd Goldrush pumpkin and adhere on top of the Saffron piece.  I left adhesive off of the edges of the pieces so that I could roll them a little for dimension.

The card base is 4 1/4" square.  The Saffron dot sheet from the Enchantment Fundamentals is cut at 3 3/4" square.  The white daisy center is 3 1/4" square.  Before placing the pumpkin, stamp the sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment in Saffron, and then I rolled the bottom in Goldrush for subtle ink dimension.

I used Fern twine to make the pumpkin tendrils along with Fern paper from Enchantment Fundamentals to make the banners (1/2" x 3/4").  I stapled those little banners before adhering them.  Gold sequins finished off this fall card nicely.

Here is the Autumn Wishes stamp set, and it's just $9.95!

Monstrous Halloween (or Birthday!) Card Class

Monstrous Halloween/Birthday Card Class
Monday, October 3rd at 6:30 pm
Class Cost:  $12.00

When I saw the monsters in the Halloween set, I knew that I would have to create a class!  No matter what color you use, they are adorable!!

The fun part about this class is that none of these cards need to be Halloween cards.  If you would rather make them into Birthday cards, there is a birthday sentiment in the stamp set.  
Let me show you the whole stamp set along with the Thin Cuts that match the monsters:

Isn't this just so fun?  I don't even have little kids in the house, and I love this set!  I was even happier that I could cut the images with the Thin Cuts.

In this class, we will be doing a little watercoloring to add just that something "more" to our cards.  Then we will be using the Thin Cuts to cut out our monsters.  You will leave the class with a colorful assortment of Halloween and/or Birthday cards using Jeepers Creepers paper and the matching Washi Tape.  You're also going to get a great introduction to our new colors - Sea Glass, Tangerine, Willow, Raspberry, and Pansy.

If you would like to take this class long distance, it is $14 (plus shipping).
