Sailing Home

Hi Everyone,

The 2019-2020 annual catalog is finally here!  It is so jam packed full of wonderful new items to create with that it was hard to decide what to use first.  I decided on this card using the new Sailing Home Stamp Set and matching Smooth Sailing Dies.  This set definitely lends itself to more masculine cards and my mind is racing with ideas. The coordinating DSP is equally exciting and very versatile.

Hope you enjoy!

Varied Vases

Hi Everyone,

Usually I share some of my cards that take quite a bit of time to make.  I truly love getting immersed in a project that has lots of details to it and is labor intensive.  However every once in a while I revert back to "simple stamping", just taking a few items and creating something quick and easy.  Sometimes there is just beauty in the simplicity of a project.

For today's cards, I created 3 levels of effort.  Each one adds something from the first card while keeping the same look.  It funny because of all 3 cards the 1st and simplest is my favorite. 

Here are some links to other cards that I have made with the same set:

Piece of Cake

Hi Everyone, 

Every year when the retiring list comes out I get both happy and sad....  Happy because I'm so excited to see what is getting carried over and what will be new but also a little sad because some favorites are retiring.  While I know I can always keep and use the retiring products I tend to start to gravitate towards what is new.

In today's post I'm using both carry over and retiring sets.  The Piece of Cake set is from the Occasions 2019 catalog and will be in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and Better Together is from the 2018-2019 Annual and is retiring.  If you are looking for a great all around set then you need to look at Better Together to see if it will fit your needs.  I have just loved using it.

I love the tufted 3D Embossing Folder and one of my favorite tricks with it is to fill the little indented dots with another color just to add to the affect.  It makes it look more quilted at least in my mind :)

Hope you enjoy!
