Suite Sayings

I made this bold, quick and easy card for recent Thank You’s that I sent out, but the layout is one of those versatile layouts you can use for any occasion!

I had fun with lot’s of with the different bold patterns in the Moroccan Designer Series Paper.

Don’t you love these type of layouts? Simply change the sentiment and you have a great birthday card! For this one I used the Tin of Cards Stamp Set (138946). I’m really sad to see this set go since I love the size and font used for the sentient.

I left off the ribbon from this one since I needed a masculine birthday card.

Want to make some of your own? How about a PDF tutorial? Well I whipped one up for you this morning, so you’re in luck!

Botanical Invitations

I always do a celebration for those that qualify for my FREE  Event during Sale-a-bration and so today I thought I would share the invitations that I made for everyone along with a PDF tutorial for you.

This card uses a couple of the items on our Retirement list that I’m sad to see go specifically the wonderful Gorgeous Grunge (130514/130517) which is wonderful for collage or creating backgrounds with interest and the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies (140625) since they have these wonderful pop up areas to the flowers that create wonderful 3d effects.

Here is the tutorial that I’ve created for you – so you can make some too!

Fun & Flirty Flip Flops

What says summer more than a new pair of flip flops? Today’s card uses our fun bold Designer Series Paper, Festive Birthday to create these fun cactus flip flops.

Seaside Shore Flip Flops (1)

I’ve had several of you ask me how I created these when you saw my shoe box card HERE.

So I thought I’ve put together a video tutorial on how they are made. And I included some tips to make things easier.

Want the pattern? Well I’ve made one up just for you!

Flip Flop Pattern Printable PDF

So, what kind of flip flops do you like? Plain, bright and colorful, or wild patterns? Why not leave me a comment and let me know.

Seaside Shore Flip Flops (2)

What’s Happening Here?

On a personal note I thought I’d share with you what is happening with all this wood my son, Johnathan and I  brought home on June 20th. (Click HERE to see that post).

June 20 2016 wood for classroom

I’m excited to say my guys are making great progress on the project… my classroom!

June 2016 Classroom storage (4)

Johnathan is always happy playing with his “toys” in the garage. (He built his garage cabinetry that you see in the background over his winter break.)

June 2016 Classroom storage (1)

Over the weekend they finished the 12 x 12 paper storage unit.

June 2016 Classroom storage (2)

and the base cabinet too! Wow that was fast!!!

June 2016 Classroom storage (3)

I can’t tell you how excited I am to get painting! And you know how I dislike painting. LOL!!!

Right now, I’m trying to decide a new paint color for the classroom walls. After all, with this great cabinetry going in I need a new coat of paint, right?

I’ve got it narrowed down to two choices at this point.

classroom paint swatches

A more bold one and a safe one. I’m trying to decide how crazy I want to be LOL!!! Pool Party or Sahara Sand ???? Hmmm…. what do you think? I’ve changed my mind so many times already, but these are the two I keep coming back to since I love the Island Indigo display item I already have.

What color would you choose?

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Seaside Shore (141622/141625)

Inks: Melon Mambo (115320), Crumb Cake (126975), and Soft Suede Classic Ink (126978)
