The Fruits of Summer: birthday greetings, graduations and Father’s Day cards

CTMH’s May promotion, the Fruits of Summer paper pack is a steal at $8.95 for a whopping 12 sheets of this delicious paper!  It makes the best summer birthday cards.  Thanks to Brenda Rose and Karen Pedersen for sharing their card designs with all of us consultants…  I’ve tweaked and embellished added a few sentiments to put together a class of 12 fantastic cards (2 each of six designs):

Pucker Up..... inside: Buttercup!  It's your birthday.....

As an added bonus, I’m throwing in two addition cards: a graduation card and a Father’s Day card. It just seems like they might come in handy for many of you right about now!

Blossoms Galore!

Summer’s almost here! Cherry blossoms cover the ground like confetti and my dogwood’s in full bloom in the front yard while the azaleas brighten the backyard with their pink, purple and white blossoms. I’ve captured many of these springtime blossoms in the outdoors pictures I’ve snapped of the kids lately, now that the days are longer and the sun is shining.

I love these gorgeous Blossom papers for tucking all those Springtime happy snaps into my album:

The diagonal strip rainbow zips trip used here is one of the most fantastic parts of the Blossom papers! The stitching on this page adds a nice finish to it as well.

The Blossom complements, shown here in the title, journaling block and banner are perfect with this paper.  Love the painted metal accents as well!

Using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge to cut the title twice: once on Blossom paper and once on Glacier card stock results in a this nicely shaded title.
