Painted Autumn Designer Background

As promised, I will continue to share some projects I made already and haven’t had a chance to share with you.  Today we are taking a look at Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. I love the patterns and colouration selected in the prints.  Fall is likely one of my favourite seasons with the array of colour spattered across the landscape.  God truly has blessed us with the beauty He shares with us.

I have two cards with relatively simple designs that would make these easily duplicatable. Using the standard card base of 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″ and cutting your designer paper at 4″ x 5-1/4″ you are nearly halfway to having your card finished.

This first card has such a beautiful pattern that I wanted to leave that the focal point, which is why I stamped a simple greeting, cutting one end in a banner shape.  To add just a bit of pizzazz, I created a little bow using the Copper Trim and by running my scissor blade along the tails, I was able to get a nice curl on them.

The second card follows the same general format as the first for the card base and designer paper, however I used my Layering Circles (141705) and Stitched Shapes (145372) framelits to die cut my sentiment and added a punched daisy to the card front as well.  

Now if you don’t recall, I love the new Lemon Lime Twist colour and the Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon (144234) was the perfect addition to this card front.

Which of these two cards was your favourite?





Christmas Mini Card Holder

Well it sure has been awhile since I have posted.  I was in a car accident in late August and have been home recovering. Let’s just say life has been a struggle. Now I don’t want you all thinking I have fallen off the face of the earth and forgotten about you all, so I am going to take a couple minutes a few times a week to share with you projects I have made that I didn’t get a chance to share with you yet.

As you may well know, we are almost halfway through the Holiday Catalogue and there are some super fun products available. I couldn’t wait to share with you the super fun Pizza Box! This box perfectly fits 3 x 3 cards, which also leads me to share that 3 x 3 envelopes are available in the Holiday Catalogue.  Now how awesome is that! 

I have used A LOT of new products for todays creations and I have no doubt that you are going to fall in love with at least one of these items. 

We have Merry Music Designer Series Specialty Paper (144623), and Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack (144638), Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack (144636), Mini Pizza Boxes (144645), Foil Snowflakes (144642) and 3 x 3 Whipser White Envelopes (145829).  Just a few new items, right?

Let me tell you, there were so many more items in the Holiday Catalogue on my wish list but I simply couldn’t get them all ….right away LOL  

The Pizza Boxes are the perfect size to hold 3 x 3 cards, which means you can create the perfect little gift sets for your friends.  The pizza boxes comfortably fit 5 mini cards and envelopes and are great to alter and embellish for the right occasion.  By using the Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack, I was able to quickly and easily create and assemble these little beauties.
