Summer Sampler Home Decor Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Home decor is a particular favorite of mine to create. Once I have my theme, I usually start with some Designer Series Paper, then pull out ribbon, embellishments and card that will go with the papers, then I go to work.

I had a request from my ladies for seasonal 8 x 8 samplers they could display, so we started with summer and will continue with the Fall themed one in August. The starting point for me is the beautiful Hydrangea Hill DSP – which is still available for a few more days, so please get your order in now to avoid disappointment 🙂

Soft and Subtle Easter Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Spring has sprung, we have sunny weather here in North Texas, and here we are in Easter Week. My card uses the ‘soon to retire’ Gift of Hope Stamp Set, with its peaceful church and dainty floral garland.

Delicate Gatefold Congratulations Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card was inspired by the Playing with Patterns Combo Ribbon Pack! ~ the combination of the Coastal Cabana and Night of Navy Ribbons was just perfect. This is the card I created for my niece’s 18th birthday earlier this month. I am not too much up on the likes and dislikes of young people reaching their majority but I know she is really not into lots of frills.

There is only a tiny bit of stamping for my greeting which comes from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set.
