Secret Garden

Secret Garden I have been wanting to make a floral card using the Perfectly Preserved jar image since I got the set. This card was inspired by one I skimmed past on pinterest a while back, I don't know who to credit, but the design has been haunting me. I have to admit that I burned myself out on flower cards and haven't played with any of my floral sets in quite some time, but I thought I would give Secret Garden a shot. I love several of the flowers in the set and the fact that it has a matching Framelit set for cutting them out was all it took to convince me. I am officially falling in love with floral cards again! I had to stamp the jar on acetate.....also something that I have thinking about for a while. The Perfectly Preserved set is still available by the way, at least until the Spring Catalog expires. I just love the white flowers against the Crumb Cake! The sentiment stamp is from the new catalog and is called Label Love. There is a matching punch....so even more to love! Thanks for stopping by!

These little pears look so sweet embossed with the Iridescent Ice powder. This is one of those cards that looks so much better in person! The 24 hour cooking marathon is about to begin at our house......enjoy the festivities, everyone!

Perfectly Preserved As I look out my office window, I can see just a few yellow and orange leaves  clinging to one or two trees in the yard. The weather has been just glorious the last few weeks and I find myself lingering in the yard and actually anxious to get outdoors and do yard work. There are so many sights, smells and sounds to be enjoyed this time of year when you live out as far as I do. It is one of the things I am most thankful for. The quiet solitude that just requires a simple stroll out my back door.  This card reminds me of the bounty of blessings I enjoy every day. I used the corn image from the Perfectly Preserved set and the Orchard Harvard DSP.

Perfectly Preserved Button Jar

Perfectly Preserved After playing with the Orchard Print paper and the Perfectly Preserved set for a while, I decided to take the cute little jar a different direction. There are so many possibilities with this set! I wanted  a birthday theme, so  I decided to go vintage with a sweet little jar of buttons and lace. I wrapped the jar topper in lace and added a ruffle and a flower accent. Then I topped it off with a valance and more lace and ribbon. I couldn't find a sentiment that was the right size for the look I wanted, so I hand cut a smaller sentiment and layered it.  As you can see, I was playing with all of my favorite things on this one! Thanks for Looking

September Stamp Set of the Month – Perfectly Preserved

Stamp Set of the Month Hello everyone!  I haven't been blogging as of late, but I have been very busy working on some new programs and projects for my blog and my business! Today I am unveiling a new monthly program called the Stamp Set of the Month program. Each month I will be highlighting  a stamp set and offering a card kit and tutorial. I will be offering additional elements to this program as the next few weeks roll by, so watch for those additional perks. Here are the initial details.

September Stamp Set of the Month

Each month I will create 3 cards  that highlight a particular set (some months there will be a bonus project). The set for the month of September is Perfectly Preserved. If you order the set for that month, you will receive a FREE pdf tutorial with your purchase. The tutorial will be sent to you by email within 24 hours, after you have placed your order. Your free tutorial will contain full written and pictorial instructions for creating the projects for the month. You may also purchase the tutorial and pre-cut card pieces separately. In the Set of the month Card Kit you will receive everything you need to make one of each of the cards (with envelopes) as well as the tutorial that has full picture and written instructions and dimensions all for only $9.95 (plus shipping). You may order Add On Card Sets containing 2 of each card or 5 of an individual card (with envelopes) for $9.95(plus shipping) each, with the purchase of either the set or the Card Kit. OR Purchase the Stamp Set of the Month Bundle. This months bundle is the Perfectly Preserved set, the Cannery Set Framelit Dies and the tutorial plus supplies for 2 of each card. The Clear Mount bundle is $43.90 (plus tax and shipping) and the Wood Mound bundle is $49.90 (plus tax and shipping). That price reflects $5.00 off your product bundle (which is already discounted at 15%!) with the purchase of the Card Kit. Purchase price for these 3 items separately would be $55.85 clear mount and $63.85 wood mount before tax and shipping! You will need to email me to order your bundle and card kits. Since this is unfolding late in the month, I will be offering the September kit until October 31st. I will be announcing a new kit of the month on October 1st, which will also expire on October 31st. See the Stamp Set of the Month page for more details Thanks for stopping by!
