Lovely Layers Vellum #1 meets Botanical Layers Stamp Set Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Tucked away on page 93 of the Annual Catalog is an unusual bundle – the Botanical Layers Stamp Set paired with the Lovely Layers Vellum.

As I share in the video there are 4 different pre-printed designs as well as some plain sheets. I have created a card for each design and since there are 5 different designs I have paired each one with the 2022 -2024 In-Colors – today features Tahitian Tide.

Winter themed Sampler Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

This time last year we were on the threshold of a vicious winter storm in which North Texas was below freezing for 139 hours, today it is a little on the chilly side but the sun is shining and we have brilliant blue skies!

Today I am sharing the 3rd in a series of 4 seasonal samplers that I have created for my lovely ladies who come to my classes – although it has a winter theme, I resisted the temptation to add any Christmas-specific elements. As always with samplers there is quite a few materials and tools used but the result is so worth it 🙂

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.
