Jar of Hearts

Jar of Hearts

I never got tired of the Perfectly Preserved set in the Fall catalog.  Fortunately, Stampin’ Up carried it over into the Spring catalog (see page 36 in the Spring catalog for products carried over).  I have seen some other cards on Pinterest that use this same theme and decided to make one for myself.  Karen Giron’s card really caught my eye, so I decided to make it using Stampin’ Up products.

I have to say that while making this card, I kept humming Christina Perry’s song, “Jar of Hearts,” and now it’s stuck in my head again as I type this post.  🙂

Enjoy your Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

I don’t think I’ve used the Perfectly Preserved set and dies for a few days now.    Believe me — it has taken restraint on my part.  I think I am addicted to that set!  🙂

I wanted to play along with the sketch over at Retro Sketches, and I thought this week’s sketch was perfect for the Perfectly Preserved set.  Here’s the sketch:

And here’s my card:

I hope you enjoy your holiday, for those of you in the US who have the day off.   Thanks for stopping by!

Pears Squared

The new Perfectly Preserved set in the Holiday catalog is such a fun set to use.  I think it’s the coordinating Cannery set framelit dies that makes it extra fun.  I saw two challenges yesterday that caught my eye, and made me think I could use this set for a card that would meet the criteria for both challenges.

The first challenge is over at the Freshly Made Sketches site.  Here’s the sketch:

The second challenge that caught my eye is over at the Moxie Fab World site.  It is the Repetition Challenge, where — you guessed it — you’re to use repetition “as a tool to add emphasis, create rhythm, or to make a definitive statement in your project.”

So, after all that, here is my card:

Back to School Rules Challenge

The Paper Players have a fun challenge this week to create a project with the theme, “Back to School Rules.”  Though I’m definitely not ready for my kids to go back to school yet, I thought I would play along.
