A Picture Perfect Hello — FMS129

The fabulous Jen Mitchell has a fun and versatile sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  It’s a square card sketch, so I’ve now made two square cards in one week!  I like it!

I pulled out some fun products from the Occasions Catalog — Peachy Keen stamp set and On Film Framelits.  I think they go perfectly with the I Am Me dsp in the annual catalog.

Filmstrip HelloYou can drop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to check out the rest of the design team’s creations.  After that inspiration, I hope you’ll create your own card and join us in the gallery.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!


Hello, Friend

I was able to spend about an hour in my stamp room yesterday, and was able to get reacquainted with some of my new supplies and make a couple of cards.  It felt so good to get inky again!  I really wanted to stamp longer, but my hubby and I had errands to run — things like restocking the empty refrigerator since we’d been gone the past week.  Life does get in the way sometimes!

The colors in the Retro Fresh dsp pack were calling my name, so I made both of my cards with it.  This card also uses elements from the Peachy Keen stamp set.  Love this set!  I also used some of the fun Essentials Wooden Elements and new washi tape.

Peachy Keen Sneak Peeks — Monday Montage #9

Monday Montage Banner -- OctoberIt’s time for another Monday Montage blog hop.  There are ten of us participating in the hop, and you can make your way through all ten posts by clicking on the arrows at the bottom of each post.

I have a box of new goodies that will be coming out in the new Spring catalog and during Sale-a-Bration, and I have been itching to ink them up.  I picked one set, Peachy Keen, for this post and I made two cards to share with you.

Peachy KeenThere is a coordinating set of framelits that goes with this stamp set, and I’ve used it here.  Not only does the framelit cut out this cute polaroid frame, but it also embosses it at the same time.  Pretty cool, huh?  There are some other sneak peeks here too — notice the sequins and gold baker’s twine?

Photo Strip HelloOn this next card, I’ve used the same stamp set and framelits set.  There are a couple of other sneak peeks — wooden embellishments and gold foil vellum paper as well.  I’ve also used another new framelits set, Banners Framelits, which cuts layered banners for you.

I’ll have to admit it was nice to take a little break from making Christmas projects.  However, I need to get back to that!  I’m running out of time!

You’re ready to hop along to see the gorgeous treats that Breelin Renwick has prepared for you.  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can click on the back arrow and visit the super talented Wendy Weixler.  Either way, you can work your way through all ten stops.
