I LOVE this card of Dawns...SO pretty!

I tried ink blending the Bold Borders frame and didn't love the results.


I also used Dawns Posie Play set. It is so cute!!!
I cut up a few of the die cuts to get some extra leaves.

MAKE IT MONDAY #324: LOTS O’ DOTS


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and include lots of dots like Michelle shared in the video.

I just own 3 bottles of Nuvo Crystal Gloss Drops.
I have had them for a while and have never used them.

So mixed results for me...twice I stuck a finger in my dots.


I thought Beautiful Berries:Spring was perfect for this technique.
The stamps use dots to fill in the top layer anyway.


This one needs practice. I thought they self leveled...some of mine didn't...


I will make  a few more though because it has so much texture!!!

MAKE IT MONDAY #323: CASCADING DIE CUTS


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and include the cascading die cuts technique.

Is it ok to love your own card? I LOVE this card. I used Dawns Leave it Be.
It is one of my all-time favorites.



I haven't used it in quite a while. It is back on the table, literally!!!

This will be one I make a pile of.



Also, the combination of Hawaiian Shores and Limeade Ice is a match made in heaven!!!
They go together like...peas and carrots!!! ;)


I was thrilled to see this technique.  The slight offset of the die in the negative space and the gentle curve is SO pleasing!!!
This card is my happy place!!!

MAY 2018 BLOG HOP



That trailer is so cute. Love the black and white check and all the green, too!


I used a cluster from Seasonal Borders Spring.
I tried several floral's but they were all to big. This one was sized right.


Thank you for looking at my blog!

MAKE IT MONDAY #322: ABOVE & BELOW


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and highlight a sentiment with the above and below technique.

Still loving Warm Regards!
So I thought I would use it for my card.


I thought it worked very well.
It is a pretty floral.



I sell so many sympathy cards. I sell everyone I make, so I try and make more that I think I need.
People want to have them on hand. No one wants to have to go and buy one when you need it. We all need them...



I tend to cluster my stamping on the bottom of the card. I have been trying to break that habit.
This is a good way to get out of that mode!

Great tip Lizzie. Thank you

MAKE IT MONDAY THROWBACK: MASKING SENTIMENTS


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and include masking sentiments.

I LOVE Make it Mondays!!!
Really love them! 
I love it when we revisit them.


I get in a rut and forget about techniques.
This one is a goodie. Thank you Ashley, for reviving it!


I haven't used Beautiful Berries:Spring for a while!
It needed an appearance.

This one is a bit tricky for me to stamp when I don't use the die, but it is still such a pretty stamp!

Sequins also needed to get out of the jar! They add such texture...



I made 10 of this one. Maybe my fall sale wont be as daunting if I can keep this up all summer!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

MAKE IT MONDAY #321: INK BLENDING ON COLORED CARDSTOCK


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and include ink blending on colored cardstock


I LOVE this technique! I am not the greatest ink blender but this was pretty forgiving. Small spaces and you are looking for color saturation.



I wanted to use our new Weathervane card stock. I have wanted a gray for so long!!!
I also remembered Fresh Bouquet had an outline image...


My love of sprays convinced me to use it.
I actually think this is faster than stamping.
There are a lot of stamps for this image so it takes time to ink them all up and stamp them.
Its pretty fast to ink blend...



I made 10 of this one! So glad I am getting slightly ahead of my stock.

Thank you for looking at my blog!
