One Sheet Wonder

I have always wanted to try  a one sheet wonder set and finally found time to actually do it! Life continues to be busy. My hubby sliced the nerves and tendons in his wrist a couple weeks ago, so there have been ER trips and Dr. visits, plus a hubby home who can't do anything! But I managed to squeeze out some time.

The layout I decided on is here. There are so many out there but this one looked pretty simple. My first one used some old DSP so I could see if I liked it or not. I did, so I tried it using the Floral Boutique DSP from Stampin Up! Here is what I came up with.

I just love the navy and white! I used lots of die cuts too. Very fun and a quick way to get a lot of cards!

Thoughtful Branches

Whew! What a stressful, emotional few weeks I have had. I moved my youngest daughter to the Chicago area, my middle daughter had appendicitis, we had to finish up an apartment we were renting, start on a house we are flipping, and were in a large craft fair in the middle of all this. I think my life is a little too busy! I am looking forward to a little slower place.

One of the fun crafty things in the middle of all this busyness is the release of a new stamp set available only in the month of August from Stampin Up! It is called Thoughtful Branches and I have been having such a good time playing with it!

Lilacs are one of my favorite flowers, so I was excited to make this. There is a way to make it with the die cut too. That is on my list of things to try.

Here is a summer card.

My winter one. Still have to make the spring and fall.

You can even make coral with it! This is such a versatile set! I think I will be using it a lot.
