07.24.18… It’s been awhile since I’ve used my Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper, so today I decided to jump right back into this beautiful collection of paper and start creating! From Blackberry Bliss and Grapefruit Grove…..to Soft Suede and Cajun Craze…..to Mint Macaron and Tranquil Tide….the color combos in this paper pack are absolutely gorgeous! If you don’t have this paper yet, you’ll want to add it to your wish list! By the way….don’t miss out on the “Buy 3, Get 1 Free” promotion (on Select Designer Series Paper), which ends on July 31st! And, yes….the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper is included in that promotion. Yay!!!
I love mixing vintage with trendy, or modern, or florals, or…..with whatever inspires me at the time. The P.S. I Love You stamp set has that fun little mix…..all in one box. The focal point of the set is the vintage typewriter. But wait…this stamp set also includes some trendy little sentiment stamps, a modern “grunge” stamp, and some super cute floral stamps. I like to call it “modern vintage”. Even better…..all of these stamps are great to use individually, with or without the typewriter. Versatility at it’s best!
I just love this little bird from the Botanical Bliss stamp set! So much so, that I decided to stamp it three times, and use it as part of my card design for the latest Global Design Project – Sketch Challenge (#GDP146). Continue reading “three little birds (#gdp146)…”
07.15.18… Yes, my stampin’ friends, summer is in full swing here in Northern California. Temperatures are now between 95º to over 100º on a daily basis…with no end currently in sight. Hmmm…a cabana on a tropical island (…and one of those fancy drinks with a little umbrella) sounds absolutely wonderful right about now! So there you go folks….. those bright, vivid, tropical colors were my inspiration for this card!
07.04.18… I’m so excited about the Stampin’ Up 2018 Color Revamp! I’m having so much fun with the all of the new colors…..and many of my old favs that have returned, too! While I have to say that I’m naturally drawn to the Subtles Collection, I do like to mix Subtles with Brights, or Regals with Neutrals, or….y’all get the idea. That being said, today I was actually in the mood to mix things up. Petal Pink is one of my new favs in the Subtles collection, and Coastal Cabana has returned (…super excited about that!), and been added to the Brights Collection. Even though this card has a bit of a vintage feel, using both of these colors together adds a summery/beachy appeal as well.
Be sure to take advantage of these specials… before they end on July 31, 2018!

07.07.18… It’s a really warm day here today…about 97 degrees or so. Although I’m really grateful that it’s been a fairly mild summer so far, when it gets close to 100 degrees, it’s just plain hot! And…I don’t know about y’all, but when the hot weather hits, I like to make meals that are simple, quick and easy. Actually, a fresh Greek Salad and a couple of slices of chilled watermelon sound just perfect right about now! Ok…and maybe a little fro-yo for dessert!
