Thank you for Everything – Seashells Embossing Folder Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

A change of theme for today – with Thanksgiving and Christmas on the horizon we are going to need some thank you cards. I chose to feature the Seashells 3D embossing folder, just adding a simple greeting so the details of this embossing folder do not get lost. I am thinking this would make a really good masculine thank you card…….. change out the greeting and it would be a perfect masculine birthday card as well!!

Beauty of The Earth – Thanksgiving Fun Z-Fold Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

The leaves on the tree outside my study window are turning color and starting to fall very fast now – autumn is definitely upon us. I was not a fan of autumn when I used to live in the UK, now I live in North Texas, which has hot and dry summers, I find autumn to be a welcome change with the cooler days and better chances of rain!

The Beauty of the Earth Designer Series paper pack has some perfect autumnal color combinations and the design I have used on today’s card are exactly the colors of the tree outside my study! I chose to use a quick and simple Z-Fold card base along with the A Wish for Everything Stamp Set.

Flip over calendar ~ November Pumpkins

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Welcome November – we are enjoying some cooler weather here in North Texas, the clocks will change this coming Sunday and the leaves are starting to fall – with a little help from the very high winds we had last week.

This particular paper has beautiful plant designs and needed no more than a simple greeting to finish it off, a quick and easy card if you are in a rush.

Sweet Symmetry Pretty Get Well Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I spend a lot of time looking thru the Stampin’ UP! Annual Catalog, and I look – I really do look and then suddenly something catches my eye I had not seen before……. ?????

Each of the circles and rectangles has a ‘stitched’ edge which gives it a beautiful finish.

Once the circles are cut it is really easy to attach a piece of decorative paper to the back and here is the result………….
