Like the last couple of months I have chosen to use a 8 x 6 page, I really enjoyed making that size, sometimes a 12 x 12 page can be a little overwhelming so this size makes a great alternative…………………… plus I was able to use the Basic Black 6 x 8 Album with the coordinating Photo Pocket Pages again.

Tasteful Touches ‘Hello’ Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

‘Just Saying Hello’ – here is a card you can use for most any occasion – how wonderful to receive this and know that someone is thinking of you, particularly if you have not seen them in a while.

I broke out the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set along with the coordinating Tasteful Labels Dies for today’s card, choosing calm Pool Party and Basic Grey for my colors.

The Whale of a Time suite has a coordinating punch that will cut the whale as well as a great little water spray coming out of his water spout!  A DSP, the Seabed Embossing Folder, then some sequins and Pool Party Sheer Ribbon.  I think this will be perfect for cards for the younger people in our families!
