Day 3 bits

These purple flowers were made a long time ago from bits and pieces and I finally had a project to add them to that they would work with. Added some bits of foliage and a leftover circle diecut from one of our classes and poof! A card. And less pieces in my stash.

Day 2 of bits

I have used this green chevron soooo much this summer and I am happy to say this is my last piece and I shall never have to see it again since it is also sold out. Whew. I just added a foliage and butterfly to complete the card and stamped a sympathy saying on the inside. I inked the foliage with white ink since the 2 greens were not the same and that made it work.  Poof!

Time of Loss

A lot of our friends/customers have had a lot of funerals lately. So today while I am working on cleaning up leftover papers/pieces ....I have made a few sympathy cards to replenish our stock of them for sale. The next 7 days will be cards that I have made from just extra bits. I know I feel good clearing a few out. Sadly, they accumulate here faster then we can ever get them used.

Peach Doily

I have always liked this doily die by Cheery Lynn but have only used on pages so while I had it out on my workbench I decided to whip up a card with it for a sample for the store. The Butterfly is also Cheery Lynn and both available at Picture This.

The Sky is the Limit

 We had these 2 lonely papers left so I whipped them up into pages for sale. Dawn cut the title on our Pazzles for me and poof!! Another open spot for more new paper. We are kinda paper addicts here so we have new papers arriving every week. Love it. And so do our customers.

Best Wishes

My Favorite Things came out with teeny bow dies and I just had to have them. Isn't it adorable?
So what a quick and simple card to make but ohhhh soooo elegant. The words are Cherry Lynn dies.

Pink Flamingo

 More hand made them. I pulled out the pink and peach in this patterned paper. And used my cheery Lynn dies to create the flowers. The stamp is a Judith stamp.
                    Inked the edges of the Sweet Williams in a matching ink.
Then for a final touch I used a Cottage Cutz flamingo die on the inside.

Ladybugs don't have to be red

 Another fun card from one of my classes this past week. I love the colors. I still love the Black Eyed Susan die and I have always liked brown and pinks together. So this was my favorite card from class and it was also everybody in class's favorite as well.
The negative from the Spellbinders curved dies was used on the inside. The ladybug is an ECD die.

Peekaboo Window

 The new Taylored Expessions peekaboo window arrived at the store and it looked like it'd be fun to play with. So I bought it and used it for one of my classes.

Baby Girl

 Finishing off this paper by adding a sticker sheet to complete a page.
I only had to add the fence and the photo frames so super easy page this time and quick. I don't use stickers very much since I love dies. (fence is Memory Box) This hits the floor as a page for sale.

Dusty Rose Page

 I used the Grand Caliber for the large scalloped circle and circle.  And then various punches and dies for the flowers and their centers. I roughed everything up with sand paper and the distressing tool for edges.

Tis the Season

 Was working on pages for sale today and this paper appealed to me for a quick and easy page. I just triple matted it and cut the poinsettias from the red matting. And the yellow centers and twigs from the yellow matting.
Surprise surprise...I didn't use CL. I used Spellbinders dies this time.

This is a new foliage die from Memory Box and I had made a page sample with it awhile back because it mimicked the design in the paper perfectly. So now getting around to using it on a card. Very easy but oh so pretty. The cute little hummer is a Cheery Lynn and the thanks is an IO.

Teal & Black

 This was taking several not-so-pretty papers and making them work for a beautiful card. We are miracle workers here at PT. We often do this to move product. THEN everyone falls in love with the product and wants it. Funny how that works.
Cheery Lynn Daisy strip and the leaves are a pair of Memory box dies. The dragonfly is Cheery Lynn. Me and my Cheery their dies. And we just got some brand new ones in so I can hardly wait to get time to play with them!!

Bee Happy

 A fun card I did in a class several months ago and I do not think it made it to the blog. It was flipped into a Card Kit after class. All the dies used on this card are Cheery Lynn.
    And a cute little innie to match the outside.
