Daisy Bouquet

 I was busy making a few pages-for-sale over the weekend and on a mission to use up some left over pieces from past classes. The base is the softer side of a My Minds Eye paper and the flowers are a variety of Cheery Lynn dies I like the end results.
I used Candi Dots on the flowers as well as the page. We carry a huge selection of colors at Picture This. And all of us gals at PT love using them!!

Butterfly flutter

 Another page-for-sale using some left over pieces from other projects. Don't you get on a cleaning kick sometimes? We did last Saturday at the store. And I think we could spend a week and still never get to the bottom of all of our left overs from classes, make-n-takes, card/page kits, etc. 
I used a Zig pen to draw the flight pattern for the butterflies. Just adds some whimsy to the page.
The fun flower is one of the new ones from Cheery Lynn.

Indigo Delite

 Love how this turned out! So simple but so classy. I used my favorite Judy's Blooms again. It's so easy to advise customers who are just starting our which dies we prefer since we work with them all the time. And you have sample galore at the store too to inspire your creativity.
Here's a close-up of the Judy's Blooms. You get both petal sizes and the leaves in the set. And its available at Picture This.    We ship orders out all the time. (715)830-9555

 I was able to be in my room creating over the weekend. I had the PT crew cut me the circle border diecuts. (and had them put some out on the floor for sale as well)  Then I used left over papers I've had to put behind each circle. I used my Spellbinder circle dies to do so.  We lost both my husbands parents earlier this year so I dug this photo out from a few years back and did a page for him. Bittersweet but there ya go.
This is using the same diecut border all by itself so you can see how versatile it is. This puppy page hits the floor as a page-for-sale.

Daisy & Butterflies

I was using up pieces left over from other projects and this pretty card was one of the results.

Just playing around with bits and pieces left over. The scalloped black oval on the right was cut out of the card front on the left. I used distressed inks to get the multi colors in the background. I didn't feel like coloring so I just added inks. The flower is a Cheery Lynn Judy's Bloom. The milkcan stamp is a Judith stamp.

Yellow Rose Creation

The circle cut out of the front was used on the inside as well. No waste! And I always cut from the insides of all mattings too for the accents on my cards or pages. It is hidden anyway....less weight to card and saves $.
The Spellbinders rose die was inked on the edges and scrunched to add dimension. The foliage is a Memory Box die.   I JUST preordered their NEW summer dies Tues. and they will arrive about June 1st. We love love love Memory Box dies at PT.

More Bluebirds

I had a left over image so just changed the design and made a card for sale. On this one I used a Fiskars border punch but still added a cute bird diecut to the inside to carry the theme through.

Be sure to check out our June classes at Picture This. We will be doing a whole month of "Pinspiring Classes"  Classes inspired from Pinterest.

Susan Louise Acetates

We were lucky enough to have the actual artist (from Madison area) come teach a class at PT with her acetates and paper pics.  Very great class and very happy to support a local artist. She does the artwork and then its put on acetates and a special paper for us then to use and enjoy on our projects.

I used her bluebirds in one of my classes recently. An opening was cut using the Spellbinders oval and the acetate with the image was tucked behind.  Then I added my spin on things with pumches and more dies. Poof! A beautiful card.

With Sympathy

Today we lay to rest my step-grandpa. He was a decorated war hero and a very nice man.
Sadly we have had way too many deaths in our family already this year.
This card is using Cheery Lynn rose dies and more , Spellbinders oval die and I just scrunched them.

Just a Note

I've been on a kick with bright and cheery cards for a couple months. We had such a long winter this year in WI and so I am just gravitating toward the bright flowery designs.
This is using a cheery lynn stacker flower and Spellbinders foliage die. And just a thin strip on the inside with another flower completes it.

Kitty in Window

Good morning!!
This card was a hit in class the other night....they loved the color combos. (I just love the cats)
I had seen on stampingwithloll blog the dotting flower centers with a white gel pen and really liked how it looked so that was implemented into this card.
Lots and lots of product was used on this card some of which were Cheery Lynn dies, MS punches and Impression Obsession cat dies.
