Some Kinda Wonderful Workshop Your Way!

This month my club will be ordering the Some Kinda Wonderful kit that includes layouts and cards all in one kit!



You can add our pocket plus protectors to add even more photos to the third layout!

With your scraps you will have enough paper to create 9 cards - 3 each of 3 designs featuring the Some Kinda Wonderful Cardmaking stamp set and thin cuts!

I decided to change mine up by using the left over complements instead! I cut the paper pieces the same, just used a different stamp and left over embellishments!



You will also have extra pocket cards. Here is one that I used on a card!

Would you like to join the club and join the fun? Contact me for more information. Are you not local? You can still participate! Order the kit to make at home and participate in all of the rewards of being in the club! Contact me for more information.

The Some Kinda Wonderful Workshop Your Way kit includes everything you need! And this is the last month you can order from our Seasonal Expressions 1 book! Don't miss out!

Birthday Card From Alyson Mayo!

I received a BEAUTIFUL birthday card all the way from Canada!!!

My sweet friend Alyson Mayo created this with so much love and care - it's absolutely PERFECT!

She used paper from our Sugar Rush collection along with one of my favorite retired products - sparkle flourishes! LOVE these! The Silver Foil tape is the perfect addition to frame the open space! And look at the glitter gems in the center of the flowers!


Thank you Alyson! I love, love, love it! And LOVE YOU! xoxo

Paper Blossoms!

How would you like to learn how to make these adorable Paper Blossoms? These make adorable backgrounds for parties, bedrooms, and entryways!
See instructions below:
What you will need: 
• 11 sheets of the same paper design. (The artwork example uses Hello Lovely (X7216B), but you can choose any paper packet! )
• Inside circle from the Welcome Home wreath kit from the January promotion—you can substitute this with a 9½" circle cut from cardboard or chipboard. 
• Liquid Glass (Z679) 
• Paper trimmer or scissors
Step 1—Cut your paper. 
You will need to cut your sheets into the following sizes: 
• 4" x 4" (51) 
• 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" (32) 
• 3" x 3" (15)
Step 2—Form your petals. 
Once your paper is all cut, roll up each piece like a cone, leaving it open on the top and closed at the bottom; seal the seam using liquid glass. Roll up each petal keeping the same pattern on the outside of each.
Step 3—Assemble your flower. 
Using the inside circle from the Welcome Home wreath kit as your base (or a cardstock circle), start building your flower from the outside layer. Attach your largest petals onto the round about 2" in from the edge, leaving about a finger width between each. (Tip: pinch the bottom tip of the cone flat when adding adhesive). When building your second row, place the petals in the spaces created in the first layer, and so on. Use the large petals for the first three layers, then create two layers using the medium sized petals, and complete the final 2 layers in the center using the smallest petals. Depending on how tightly you roll your petals and how close you attach them, you may end up using a different number than you cut at the beginning.
Step 4—Display your completed flower with pride!

Additional notes: 
• For an alternate look, you can change which paper pattern shows on each layer. In this scenario, attach your petals as you roll them up so you’ll know how many of each pattern you need. 
• For faster drying, you can use a hot glue gun in place of liquid glass when adhering your petals to the final base.

Have fun creating these adorable paper blossoms! I'd love to see what you come up with!
