Christmas!

It is raining here. Thunderstorms, actually. I love them, as long as I know I'm safe!


It has been hot and muggy and the rain is cooling things down. I like it cooler so this is fine with me. Reminds me of fall. And after fall comes...Christmas! So of course I had to make some Christmas cards. Do you follow my reasoning there? I'm using the Carols of Christmas set again while I patiently (maybe impatiently!) wait for my order from the new SU! holiday catalog.


The first one is very traditional, but I like that. I used the embossing paste on the trees to give the look of snow. And the paper from the Eastern Palace suite looks so nice. Love that little deer!




Metallics are all the rage this year so I made up a card using gold, silver, and copper! I really like the combo of all of them together.


Then I tried one with vellum. 


Really fun set! I'm sure I will be playing with it more. I'm going out to my porch to enjoy the thunderstorm. Enjoy the weather, wherever you are!

Thanks for stopping!

National Watermelon Day!

It's National Watermelon Day! We celebrated a day early because we like watermelon. A lot.


So to celebrate today and in my quest to do some of my older paper pumpkins, I decided to make up the June (I think) PP. It was a cute gift bag and card set.


The two outside cards and some alternates that I made.



I hope you get to enjoy some watermelon today! Think of me when you eat it. I will be enjoying some too!

Carols of Christmas

The pre-release of Carols of Christmas is available now! I have been having fun playing with this set, but not with a Christmas theme. Okay, to be fair, I did make a couple of Christmas cards. Here is one of them. Not a very good picture.



I have actually been using the one die to make little frames. Here are a few of the samples I made.

This one uses the Delightful Daisy DSP and the sentiment from Big on Birthdays.



The next two use the stamp from Balloon Adventures and the Pick a Pattern DSP. I love the little images in this set. It was so hard picking the ones I wanted to use on the card so I made two. And there is still enough variety to do another!



The last one uses the cute fox from the Birthday Memories DSP. I just love that the die cuts work on the paper too!


Thanks for stopping by to look!

It's back!


I am so excited the daisy punch is back in stock! To celebrate I made a card. One of my neighbors has a beautiful garden, and as I was walking by the other day I saw his echinacea in bloom. They were so pretty. So I came home and tried to recreate them. Not as beautiful as the original but I think they turned out nice. And don't you just love that little bee!



Thanks for stopping by. And don't forget to stop and smell the flowers!

July Paper Pumpkin

Finally got my Paper Pumpkin and had a brief moment to sit down and play. Such a cute set this month! Here are some of the alternatives I made.


I used the bear from A Little Wild for this one. He is so sweet!


For this one I just used the stamps that came in the kit and some washi tape.I like how it turned out.
