Swan Lake Cards!

The cards you can create with the Swan Lake Workshops Your Way feature our Thankful For Your Thin Cuts and stamp bundle!
Here are the cards. Adorable, right?

Some people LOVE the swans! Some just don't get it! So I took these same card patterns and added our Hello and Thanks thin cuts to them instead of the swans. Here is what I came up with:

I used some gold glitter paper for the sentiments on these cards. And again, I flipped over the swan side of the paper to reveal the flowers!

I used a couple of left over PML cards from the kit on these two:

Very simple, but I like how they turned out. Just by substituting the swans for a thin cut word instead!
You can find the Hello and Thanks thin cuts on my website here.

Happy Creating!

Swan Lake Workshops Your Way Kit!

This month my club is ordering the Swan Lake Workshop Your Way to make next month! This paper has such rich, warm colors perfect for this season!! I actually did NOT use the swan side of the papers, I flipped the paper over which has beautiful flowers over a black background!
So here is the swan paper - which is really just background, the photos are the feature!

Here is my layout using the other side of the swan paper which features flowers!

I love the accessories in this kit!!

Why am I bothering to show you this? So that you don't quickly dismiss something because of the name or the pattern or the theme. As most of you know, our pattern papers have a different pattern on each side! If you don't like one, just flip it over! Also, as you saw with our Halloween papers, you can use the different sides that are NOT theme specific for any occasion! This kit is no different! Remember, these are workshops YOUR way! Create the layouts only or the cards only or absolutely everything! Here are the rest of the layouts you can create with this kit!

 Our NEW Pocket Plus Memory Protectors are the easiest way to add more photos, journaling, and artwork without over crowding your layouts. Fill the 3x4 and 4x6 pockets with photos, journaling or Picture My Life (PML) cards from this kit. These "mini pages" become part of your two-page layout!

With your scraps in this kit, you can create 8 beautiful cards! I'll post them next!
You can get your very own Workshop Your Way to create in your own home!

Jeepers Creepers Cards

I don't have little ones at home, but I still think these little monsters are adorable!

Yesterday I posted the cards for the Workshops Your Way kit. Today I want to show you the slight changes I made to mine.

This first one all I did was add a Dollar Store googly eye - but it's just enough to gain the affection of a little monster in your life!

Remember to stamp your envelope while you have your stamps and inks out!!

Next, I actually stamped the wrong sentiment on the card base, so to cover it I added the matted sentiment!! I love how you can use these little monsters for birthdays too!! And of course more googly eyes!

And finally, this card is bright and adorable just as designed in the kit...perfect for a little girl.

But flip the orange striped paper over, and you have the same card, only a little more boyish.

Aren't these fun???? And they were SUPER easy to make using the Monstrous Halloween Thin Cuts Bundle which includes the stamp set and coordinating monster thin cuts!
With the birthday theme, you will be able to use this set all year long!
These seasonal products are only available while supplies last through December 31, 2016. Be sure to get yours before they run out!
