We had so much fun today making cards. Everyone took the basic design and pieces and just creatively put them together. All the cards turned out so beautifully. It was the first time for two of the women and they did such an amazing job of putting their cards together.

Today I spent some time cleaning up my stamping area and putting together cards that I had not finished yet. Then I found some of the cards I had swapped at Convention and found this one from Carol Sanderson. I just added the big star because I was trying to use up all the little pieces I had leftover from other cards as well. This is a very pretty card mainly using Hello Honey with some Lost Lagoon as well. It really is fun to swap your cards with other demonstrators - so many great ideas!

I was working in the garden earlier and just love my flowers. These ones in particular bloom for such a long time. I hadn't used this stamp set yet so wanted to try and make these flowers and I like the outcome! Stamp, cut out the flowers using the framelits and magnetic platform and voila!

I never browse through Pinterest without finding something I would like to try. This idea is from Nikki Spencer and I have changed the background but loved being able to use this new stamp set in a different way. The Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set will be available in September from the new holiday catalogue. I tried this stamp set at Convention and it is great that they have put tabs on the wreath so you can easily match the double stamped images. I loved Nikki Spencer's idea of using this Christmas wreath for a flower wreath and had to try it.
Paper: So Saffron
Stamp Sets: Wondrous Wreath
Punches: Itty Bitty Punches
Adhesives: Snail, glue dots

I am really enjoying working with Project Life. These are two more sets of pages I have made for my friend who has become a grandmother. The top page is completely made with Project Life cards and the second page I added some pink cards and baby shapes cut out with framelits. Project Life makes scrapbooking so easy - I have actually finished this complete book. All my friend has to do is add pictures - this will make a great gift.

Welcome to our Blog Hop. Here are two projects featuring the big Shot.
This is a gift card envelope made with the Gift Card Envleope and Trims Thinlits Die that will be available in the new holiday catalogue. It is great as a demonstrator to be able to try out the new products. It was my daughter's birthday this week and I made this and put a gift card in it for her. I wanted it to be a bit special so made two flowers using the Spiral Flower Die and it looked like a special little gift.
I made this card with the Friends Who Know stamp set. I cut it out using Labels Collection Framelit. I cut the two Daffodil Delight pieces using the Banners Framelits Collection. It is tricky to match colours with this big stamp but the Colour Coach is always helpful.

My Project Life arrived today. You get so many adorable card collections and many different pieces come with the accessory packs. I ordered the Lullaby DSP as well as I am making a baby album for my friend who just became a grandma. I will put all the pieces in and she will just have to add the pictures. Such a great idea. The kit featured here is Little Moments. My friend is going to love this. Wish they had these when my children were growning up. They had to wait until they graduated for their own little albums. This would be so easy to keep up with to put pictures in. More to come!
