My Acrylix® Flowers for Mom stamp set

A single sentiment from this set sums up perfectly the influence my mom had on me: “Because of you, I am me.”

Hope you like the card… thanks for looking!

If you live in the DC area, you are welcome to drop in anytime between now and Mother’s Day and make a card with me for your mom. It’s on the house!

Blossoms Galore!

We hit the peak of Cherry Tree Blossoms in Washington DC this weekend and the traffic kept me off the roads and at home… What a perfect excuse to play with the new Blossoms paper from the Seasonal Expressions 2 which just went live!

Five fun cards using Blossoms paper, shimmer trim, puffies stickers, sequins, thick twine and our new Shin Han markers.

And One for the Boys….

While the Brushed pages this month are perfect for the Cherry Blossoms getting ready to bloom all over the DC area, they don’t  really suit our boys. Photos of camping out at Eagle Bay, summer horse camp, and Boy Scouting events are all showcased perfectly with the Jackson papers. One of my students just made Eagle Scout and invited me to his Court of Honor this month. I have the perfect page all picked out for him!

Can you guess which layout I’ll use?

The feathers are my favorite complements in the Jackson set. I love the metal accents in the Jackson assortment used on the tags as well.

Spring Blooms are Here!

I don’t know about you, but I am ready for Springtime!  It is finally starting to warm up in the DC area and I for one am very glad to see the daffodils blooming!

To celebrate, I got creative and came out with 6 two page layouts using the Brushed papers:

Fun layout with lots of stamping, washi tape, glossy resist card stock and metal flowers from the Brush assortment

Love the springtime and Easter feel to this layout. The yellows, blues and greens remind me of the budding new life of Spring.

The Cricut Artbooking overlay reminds me of a garden trellis!  I absolutely love the flowers from the Budding Friendship stamp set too!
