You Wonderful Thing You

 

Hello there!  Are you ready for a new challenge?  The Pals Paper Arts have a sketch challenge this week.  Ginger Toivonan has designed a wonderful sketch for you this week, so grab your provisions, create something fun, and head on over to the PALS to link it up.



I usually always start to design my card with a stamp set and a DSP, from there it's all easy!  The Suite Sayings stamp set has some really nice fonts and sayings, it is a must have.  The Birthday Bouquet DSP is one of my favorites, I love all the pink and green goodness!


I decided to dress up my whisper white bakers twine with some gold sequins.  Pool party glitter ribbon, and a vintage faceted button help to finish it all up nicely.


I added a few gold sequins to the other panel to tie them both together.


I tend to have trouble with angled items, but using a sketch really helps you figure it out.  Everyone needs a little help now and then to step out of your comfort zone.  Have you played along with the PALS yet?  We would love to see your creation, you could be our PALS pick, so play along!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!

Bonjour, Beautiful!


Hello there!  Are you ready for a fun sketch challenge?  The Pals Paper Arts have a new sketch this week that will help to jump start your creativity.  Create something fun for your chance to be a PALS Pick!





When I started this project, I knew I wanted to use two things, this adorable Bonjour Beautiful stamp from Happy Happenings, and the dots gift bags.  Simple flowers were made by punching small scallops, crumbling them and layering them.  I still love these sweet flowers, even after all the new dies and techniques.  A little bit of gold floss adds some glimmer.


Even though Valentines day is over, the Love Blossom DSP stack can still be used for girly projects, pink and green, my two favorite colors are both in this pack of papers.




Love this one, simple but with a lot of WOW factor, this gift bag is good for all types of little presents!



Mackie had her senior prom this past weekend, where oh where does time go.  Here are two of my favorite pictures from this weekend.  We still don't have all of the pictures back, but I love these both.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!

Blessings of Easter


Hello there!  Are you ready for a great stepped up sketch?  Beth Beard has designed a sketch that will help you add some layers to your project. The Pals Paper Arts weekly challenge will inspire you to get crafting.  Link up your project for a chance to be a PALS pick!



I love, love this stamp from the new Suite Sayings stamp set, I wanted to use it before it's to late.  The font and saying is just beautiful.  You can hardly see it, but it is stamped on shimmer white card stock which I love and tend to hoard.  The oval framelites layer quite nicely!


Mossy meadow and blushing bride, oh how I love pink and green together.  The striped ribbon just fits in perfectly.


Ahhh, I will use this Birthday Bouquet DSP a lot, the colors are soft and fun, and mix and match very well.


I might have to make a few more of these to send out in time for Easter.  We hope to see what you create with this fun sketch.

Don't forget that there are just a few weeks left of Sale-A-Bration, so pick your favorite products and get a free item with any $50 purchase.  Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!

Just for You!


Hello there!  It's sketch time again at the Pals Paper Arts, Patti McLeith is our host designer this week and she has created a fun sketch for you to enjoy.  We would love for you to join us, and you could be a PALS pick.  Grab your provisions, create something fun, and link it up.



I have to start at this beautiful new spring Birthday Bouquet suite.  I confess to getting most of it, the colors and patterns are just so fun.  The Birthday Bouquet DSP is just glorious, and since I needed a birthday card, it was a perfect choice.  Yes, that is the pool party glitter ribbon, think glitter without the mess, yay!


This free stamp set Botanical for You, just screamed for me to gold heat emboss it.  Yes, it was free during Sale-A-Bration with your $50 purchase.  It's just so pretty, and teamed up with another free item, Botanical Gardens vellum stack, you can't go wrong.


Even the sentiments are cute!


This is a nice flat card which will easily mail, which is great since this one already went out in yesterday's mail.  The little candy dots will be just fine.

We are in March already, so that means just a few more weeks of SAB, so take advantage of free products today!  Order ONLINE today.  Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy.
