Summer Days

Good morning everyone! How I LOVE quiet mornings, the kids are outside relaxing (AKA horsing around) in the hammock and I have nothing on the agenda today. My parents have an abundance of strawberry plants in their garden so one day this week I plan on making a few batches of jam, but today might be a ‘nothing’ kind of day!

Here’s another card made over the weekend. It’s totally inspired by Amy Scheffer and came somewhat short of what I had envisioned. I used SU!’s postage punch and punched out some designer paper. The sentiment is from a Flourishes stamp set and the rose trim was white but I used a Copic marker to colour it, love how easy it is to change the colours to what I need!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you're having great summer day!

Let's Try That Again!

So some of you might have noticed I never came back to post over the weekend like I said I would, I’m hoping to get my internet woes sorted out soon!

Gosh we had a warm day today, and with no breeze so it made it feel even warmer. I love summer but not the hot days, I love the days that are just warm enough to feel like summer but not hot enough to make you long for winter!

I’m posting a project today that I did with my club ladies a while back, the tutorial for it can be found at Splitcoaststampers in the resources section. It’s actually quite easy, I did revise it slightly so that I could use regular 8.5x11 cardstock. I also didn’t have the chipboard coasters so I used the cardboard that comes with SU!’s designer paper. I recommend using your corner rounder punch on the cardboard before you glue your paper together, otherwise the layers are a little too thick for your punch.

I also didn’t use ribbon to tie the book together like the original tutorial, I find that the recipients of these sorts of things prefer the Velcro closure over the ribbon. I simply glued the flap between the cardboard and cardstock and than add the Velcro.

Thanks for stopping by!

Yay! I'm back!!

Yay, it’s nice to be somewhat back to the world again! Our move was successful, we’re having a blast camping right now and our home building plans are slowly coming along. I know it’ll be a while before it’s finished but I’m so excited to pick all our colours and fill it with new furniture!

My internet connection is a bit of a pain right now but I have been stamping in my free time and plan on posting regularly from this point. That’s what I say now, you can hold me to it, lol.

I have one card to share today using a stamp from the Pure Innocence line, so cute! I coloured her with my copics and paper pieced her shirt and purse. Faux stitching around the edges and the rest is easy peasy!

Thanks for stopping by, check back again tomorrow for another project!
