Quick & Easy
Hi friends! Today’s share is inspired by two projects off Pinterest to make this pretty, yet quick, card! I’ve used the Swirly Bird Bundle here, a set of dies and stamps that are oh-so-versatile:
The colours are three of the new In-Colours, which team up nicely together for a sweet project. Flirty Flamingo, PeekaBoo Peach, and Sweet Sugarplum look great together!
You can make this project in about 15 minutes; it’s a great template to keep on hand to recreate in different colours and with different sentiments. Here I’ve used the Better Together stamp set, one that I will be using in the upcoming Extravaganzas as well.
Thanks for stopping by! And if you haven’t signed up for my 12 Weeks of Christmas Tutorial Series, please do so! I’d love to share projects with you!

Today’s share is one of the three projects the guests made at my recent Holiday Catalogue Open House, and is inspired by Sandi McIver’s card of the same layout. I’ve used the new Hang Your Stocking stamp set:
The wee stocking is stamped with the Hang Your Stocking stamp set and cut with the coordinating Christmas Stocking Thinlits Dies. I cut two, one in Cherry Cobbler and one in Mint Macaron and paper pieces them together.
And every Christmas card needs a dash of sparkle!

Happy Wednesday! Before I run off to teach a class tonight, I wanted to share with you this cute card inspired by my friend in Idaho. Make a cute mouse using the Fox Builder Punch (ears using the Owl Builder Punch):
I had a lot of fun teaching this one at the Hamilton Quilt & Craft Show;everyone had their own little rendition of a mouse.
How cute is that face?!
The Fox Builder punch makes sooo much more than a fox!

Every year I pull out my Lovely As A Tree and make some version of this technique. So effective, lovely and easy!
This year I’ve used Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry:
I paired up Lovely as a Tree with Merriest Wishes, which has a cool dotted set which I used here for the “snow”.
Add a little glitter and it looks amazing!

When I was on the Grand Vacation in Hawaii last year, my friend Marelle Taylor showed us a fun, easy way to get 72 card fronts out of a single pack of 12×12 papers. She calls this technique the Rip & Flip:
I chose to use the Bliss & Blooms Designer Series Paper because (1) it has two colour ways in the pack and (2) each piece of the printed paper has a printed side and a more solid side, making it pretty perfect for this technique.
The Blooms & Wishes stamp set coordinate perfectly with these paper, too, for a complete set for a great project.
Please check out my upcoming events – I’d love to have you join us!
Floral Phrases has certainly been one of my favorites from the new catalogue, and the Night of Navy & Sweet Sugarplum combination really appeals!
Today’s share is what I made for my team swap last weekend, and is inspired by a sample on the Mediterranean Cruise and made with the Floral Phrases Bundle:
