Hi there, did you miss me? We have soooooo much to catch up on and 1st – how was the eclipse?
I was here on Randall Lane and it was exciting, (well I guess) Daisy was in the air conditioning (in the tack room) …Arnold and Oscar were in their stalls and the dogs and I went back and forth from the TV to the outside with my DIY Cereal Box Glasses! (I should have taken a selfie)
I shared with you that me and my new friends on Interstate 95 South had fun on Friday but let me tell you, we had more friends coming home on Sunday! (hats off to all of you that have to deal with traffic….it stresses me!)
I bet you are thinking…what the heck is she talking about with this title of the blog today! Well….let me explain. I have been in the “stampin’ trenches” trying to get my kit completed and WOW – they look amazing (if I must say so myself) but my kits are a big part of what I do so that’s what I have been up to! (and….if this is the trenches…I am lucky!)
Last week I shared with you that when I create, I try to make them go in stride with current “life happenings” and this is what I am talking about…1,2 & 3! (and…I have 1,2 3 photos for you!)
Today’s card (which is super sweet) and tomorrow’s card (which is super sweet, again!) goes with Friday’s project…(which is super yummy) and you will see why the post is named this!
I also shared with you some videos of some of my favorites in the new upcoming catalog, and YEP….I really, REALLY love this bundle! If you missed this video…please treat yourself to this “fun watch” (this is a fantastic bundle of fun!)
By the end of the week, this blog title will make sense to you! Today I am meeting a “special someone” a very dear friend that I want to write her a note to say “thank you” and with…..(well , #3 on Friday)
This bundle will go ALL YEAR LONG….just a simple change of colors and POOF – an instant card! I know that Jennie is a very clean and modern person so I challenged myself to play with classic colors that are both “style and fresh” I think that I accomplished both!
The color scheme is Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla and good old Whisper White! I ask you….how can you go wrong….(let me answer for you…YOU CAN’T)
I cut the colors to a 3′ X 3″ square and then put the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets – (a life saver) as there is an adhesive backing on the flip side of the card stock and again, POOF…it sticks!
I did not make an envelope today because it will go with Friday’s post and then you will see that “it all makes sense” We are very fortunate to be able to take a project and add it along with some great packaging…and make a really, REALLY special gift!
The ease of these framelits makes this not only a super fun & classic card but it actually allows you to make many cards as all you do is swap out the inside pieces and PRESTO you have another card! Today I just used the outer shell but the other pieces will easily make another card/project so you can see – endless possibilities!
It is so much easier to go ahead and cut this whole die out with the multipurpose adhesive from the start (even if you do not use the inside pieces on the project) because WHEN you need to use the pieces….PRESTO – they are there ready for you to just peel off!
Did you see the great sentiment? We all have loved this bundle, Lovely Inside & Out Bundle….the ability to be able to snip-out the words and use them in the fashion that I am today is a win-win…super fast and effective!
I am a HUGE lover of “fonts and die sentiments” and I think that you can see that YEP, a single word can be super effective! I actually cut several of them and stacked them up, again, super easy with the adhesive sheets.
I know that it is hard to tell in the picture but the 1st layer of “friend” is out of Sahara Sand and then I stacked the rest in white. Having that off set a wee bit made a great effect.
That’s it for today….a super sweet and simple square card that will make someone smile! That is just the way I like it! I know that one thing that we all have in common…we like to craft, we like to make things with our hands!
Trust me, I “get it” as I am the same way but that darn way but I also know that the “time thing” also gets in out way – I think you can see….this is a timeless card…..(a keeper…a classic) 😆
Have a great day….see you in the morning – time to play a game!!!!
