I just love the savings on the punches! The 1″ square is awesome when making quilt cards and the scallop edge is perfect to finish off a card:) And, now you can pick up some Gold Twine to match the Gold Vellum Paper from last week’s deals- WOOHOO!

Paper Crafters Sampler July 2014 Elements of Summer

The July 2014 Paper Crafters Sampler “Elements of Summer” is up and running.

PCS July 2014_sml

 What images run through you mind when you think of summer? Does it remind you of family vacation time, picnics, or camping? Do you think of those sweet summer outdoor parties or the over-abundant blooms everywhere?

This month the Design Team has created projects based on what reminds them most of summer. Projects include a 3D summer basket bucket list, a 3D camping project, lots of beautiful floral images, and a mouth-watering picnic idea.

Here is a sneak peek of my project…

SU Flower Patch


It’s Friday! This week went by super fast but I think summer months just fly by, don’t you? Or maybe it was all the stamping I did this week and the Stampin’ Up convention coming up next week! I did get my card done for Lisa’s Friday Mashup # 168 summer themed color challenge so I am happy.

Here’s your Mashup Challenge:
Create a project using the colors” Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon & Mossy Meadow.”
Create a project with a “Summer” theme (Beach, Picnic, Swimming, etc.)
or Mash It Up! and create a “Summer project using the colors above.”


I finally pulled out my Flower Patch Photopolymer stamp set with its coordinating framelits. I only scratched the surface with three of the stamps in this set, too. I also tried my hand at the new “thread/twine” trend I have been viewing online. It gave a little boost to my card. I am looking forward to adding some more of this design embellishment on future projects but this was my first attempt, and we all need to start somewhere! I added a teensy bit of elegance with the rustic twine by scattering some pearls on the card.

SU By the Seashore with SU Remembering Your Birthday

I was pleasantly surprised to see the Paper Players Challenge # 203 this week had a BEACH theme since I was working on one of my class cards this week with the SU By the Seashore stamp set! I wanted to make sure we used it before summer had passed us by…




SU By the Seashore Waterfall


You will find a ton of cards when you google “waterfall card”- they have been around a long time!  But my inspiration came from my friend, Linda Heller, at who used the scallop tag for the pulling mechanism on the card.  It was easy to make but has a WOW factor to it. I used my SAB 2013 paper that seems to never deplete! I love the colorful bubbly print on the DSP that reminded me of the colors of the sea. I love how SU makes it so easy to create a card with its coordinating Designer Series papers, ink, cardstock and ribbons. I simply pulled out the colors from the DSP and went to town.
