How about a scrapbook page? I have not shared any scrapbooking in quite a while. I am having a class this weekend and this is what we will be making. I love how bright and cheery it is. It just really makes me smile.
There is actually no stamping on this page at all. Sometimes I like to do pages using just the Complements that coordinate with our paper packs.

Here are some details of the journaling area.
Supplies*:Cardstock - White Daisy, Sunset, Lagoon
Paper Pack - Blossom
Ink - none
Stamp Sets -  none

Other - Blossom Complements, Blossom Assortment, Coral Reef Sequins, Make It from Your Heart, Vol II

Delightful bunch of Blossoms

Here is a little card that I made using the Blossom Paper Pack. I was inspired by a card sketch from PageMaps. There are lots of little layers popped up and a few banners on the bottom instead of the top of the card. I also added some Glacier Twine and some Coral Reef Sequins.

A little "Taste of Summer"

Welcome to the Rose Blossom's Taste of Summer Blog Hop. If you came from Cathy's blog you are in the right spot. I hope you find lots of inspiration and enjoy hopping.

Nothing screams summer more than camping!! I decided to combine the adorable little Camper Crazy set with the bold fun prints from the special Taste of Summer paper pack. I came up with a fun little set of cards.

Here is a the first card. I used some Sparkles, Chalk It Up Assortment,  and the Lavender and Turquoise Blue ShinHan Twin Touch Markers.

Here I used some of my favorite new to me embellishment Sequins and Cherry Pink, Tender Pink, and Vivid Green ShinHan Touch Twin Markers.  I also cannot get enough of the Shimmer Trim I used Silver on this card.

Here I decided to go green with some wooden embellishments from the Timberline Assortment and I used the Vivid Green and Pastel Green markers. I also used a little bit of black bakers twine here.

Here is a the last card of the set I used Cherry Pink, Pastel Peach, Turquoise Blue, and Leaf Green markers. Another wood complements from Timberline, Triangle Studs and some fun Yellow Washi Tape (who knew this was so fun to use?).

From here you can go back to Brenda's blog. Thanks for stopping by.

Just Sayin' Spring Green

I am finally seeing green around here! Lots of has been raining, and raining, and raining some more. Even though it is suppose to be April Showers bring May Flowers this May in Illinois we are getting Aprils rain, but it isn't snow so...

Here is a fun little card I made

Do you see all of those triangles? I never thought I would make another project with so many triangles after my early scrapbooking days with Creative Memories. Remember those triangles? Just sayin' these are cute...just look at them. Maybe it is because they are covered with polka dots.

I also used some washi tape on the inside.

Stamp Sets -  May SOTM - Just Sayin', Artfully Sent

Thank you for sticking around

So I am in the running for least consistent blogger for sure. If you are still sticking around here let me just say thank you! I could give you a laundry list of the hows and the whys that I have been neglecting all you readers but I am sure you don't have time for that. Let me just say I won't be blogging every day but I will try my best to be more consistent and bring you all sorts of cuteness on a regular basis.

Here is a thank you card I recently made.

Here is a side angle

and a peek at the inside. I would show you more but I already wrote in it.

Here is another side angle...different angle.

Oh and the back...I just used a few words for my "Hallmark" that is what my friend calls it when you put a little mark on the back.

Oh...oh oh...I also made a cute matching envelope liner.

Little Miss

I have always loved these adorable little ladies. They remind me of my girls. If I had my way I would have more than just two or three of them. Note to self: buy more!

I was rummaging around my things trying to use things that I love but that I neglect and that is when I saw this lady. I also had all this left over Tommy paper that I wanted to use up and so this is what I came up with-

What do you think?

Here is the inside...

Personally I love how it all came together. I hope the person that got her in the mail thought she was extra cute.

Cardstock - Outdoor Denim, Honey, White Daisy
Ink - Cranberry, Black

Stamp Sets - Tommy WOTG Stamp Set, Pure Innocence Naptime by My Favorite Things*

The simple things

Here is a quick card thank you card. I find that you can just never have to many of these. I try to have them on hand along with birthday cards.

This year one of my goals was to send out more cards and I did. I wish I would have sent more but I am a work in progress right?

Sometimes when I make cards I like to do lots of layers, lots of fancy cuts and lots of embellishments and sometimes I do simple.

Simple works -

Simple can be good

To quote on of my favorite songs by Jim Brickman with a great message:

The sun, the moon, the stars, the beating of two hearts
How I love the simple things, the simple things just are

I hope you enjoy the simple things in life and have a very Happy Week with your friends and family!
