On this card, I was playing around with my hexagon punch and the White Stampin' Chalk Marker.  I might have to try this layout with some other color combinations too.

Gift Bag of Cards

Did you know that A2 sized cards fit into our cute little Tag A Bag Gift Bags?  I made a quick little belly band and tag and added some cards made using the Season of Style Designer Journaling Tags.

I added a few Chevron Border punches...

Mosaic Madness images...

Sentiments from Yippee-Skippee..

And some Brights designer buttons...

Super quick and easy gift!

This and That Gift

This is part of a birthday present that I gave one of my nieces, who just turned 11.  I thought it would be a fun journal for whatever she wants to put into it.

There is a little bit of My Digital Studio, Epic Day This and That designer series paper and Washi tape, hexagon punches and a sentiment from Yippee Skippee. 

Hope she enjoys using it!

September My Paper Pumpkin - Wahoo!

Even with potato harvest in full swing, I was able to put together my September My Paper Pumpkin kit a few days after it arrived!  I love that they are so quick and fun even when you give them slight alterations...

The only thing I added that was not in the kit was a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock and I have a few pieces left over.

Smile Bag

Our Late Night Stampers Challenge is to use rhinestones or pearls on our projects.  I decided to stamp on one of our mini muslin bags and dress it up with a tag and some pearls.
I used the Lacy and Lovely Stamp set for the bag and tag, the sentiment on the tag comes from Happy Day.

File Folder Card

Today I have another file folder card to share with you, this time instead of keeping my layer of dsp in a rectangle shape, I made the file folder shape in a smaller size than the card base.  

I used the image from Gifts of Kindness behind my sentiment and the From my Heart set for the sentiment.

So Sorry

I wanted to put together a simply sympathy card using the Simply Sketched stamp set (I am not great at coloring details so I didn't want to need to do that on this one).  It is paired with the So Sorry stamp set and some Soho Subway designer series paper.

Wheely Sweet

The August My Paper Pumpkin kit stamp comes into play again in this card...I paired it with the one from Cycle Celebration in my background.  The supplies from each of the kits have been used in lots of projects after the original one has been completed.

Lots of Thanks

I chose to use all the thank you sayings from the stamp set Lots of Thanks for the background on this card.  I mounted them on the largest block and stamped them all together using Pear Pizzazz ink.

The rest of the elements came together as I found them in my leftover stash!

Truly Grateful

This card seems fitting since it is harvest time around here.  We are almost done with the wheat and just starting potatoes today...

Designer series paper with sheet music on it is one of my favorite things, it seems like it goes with most anything...
