Spring Themed Sampler Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today I am sharing the 4th and final of 4 seasonal samplers that I have created for my lovely ladies who come to my classes – Spring is the theme for this one with lots of bright spring colors and elements. As always with samplers there is quite a few materials and tools used but the result is so worth it 🙂

Fall Sampler Home Decor Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

This is the second in the series of seasonal samplers I was asked to design for a class. Home decor is a particular favorite of mine, I just love to pull together the different elements, experimenting with different textures and colors until I trip over the ‘right’ combination.

I resisted the temptation to use the ‘traditional’ autumn/fall colors of cajun craze and pumpkin pie, although I did not use any of the papers, the color combination was inspired by the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper so you will see Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and the different shade of gold in the Brushed Metallic Card.

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.

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop ~ Travel

Welcome to the  Ink & Share Scrapbook blog hop,  we are  group of international Stampin UP! demonstrators sharing our ideas and creativity with you.

You will have either arrived from Jo’s  post or starting here ~ either way WELCOME.  This month are theme is ‘Travel’   ~ well in the current situation  this is defiantly a bit of a challenge – but here goes ……

I will admit I was struggling with this one as I don’t have any stamp sets etc that are ‘travel’ themed.  I was seeking inspiration and my eye fell on one of the sheets of 12 x 12 in the World of Good Designer Series Paper which has a map of the US and Canada…. and there it was – Alaska!
