Such Happy News

My eyes are naturally drawn to blues and greens, so when I first saw the Boho Indigo Medley, I was hooked. And a product medley takes all the guess work out out of it because everything coordinates just beautifully. The paper, die cuts, embossed paper, ribbon and adorable paper flowers are all ready to be used together. All I had to do was choose a layout, cut the paper, stamp the sentiments and voila! A beautiful card. It was so easy I made two using the same layout and different elements.

Love You Lots

The whimsical swirls and cute little hearts from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper were made for a Valentine’s Card. Paired with a Blushing Bride polka dot piece of DSP from the Subtles DSP Pack and a Vellum Doily and this card came together pretty quickly. I do recommend stamping your sentiment BEFORE embossing the white background piece, but hey it came out all right. LOL.

For You Valentine

More hearts and bling! It’s easy to get lost in pinks and reds for Valentine’s cards. I was going for not only a patriotic card, but also something a little less girly. Mission accomplished!
