Back in Time..

Remember when at school we had Chalkboards? Lucky for us, the Faux Chalkboard technique gives you the look but none of those sounds… This is my simple card from this past weekends class. I used a white pencil to add some doodling to the corners.

Something Simple..

Sometimes we need something fast and simple. These are the times I go to my Washi Tapes like this Affectionately Yours with lots of colors to work with. No planning needed, just add any background and a large text colored with coordinating markers. Attach it with you Tape, done!

August 2016 Paper Pumpkin Bold Botanicals

What is great about August Paper Pumpkin is that it can be both feminine or masculine. Bold colors and pretty flowers… Watch and see just how easy this Kit is to assemble even with those tiny and cute wood accents..

Here are some of my alternative ideas for this Kit.

Kinda Eclectic..

I love all things Retro and the starburst (that’s what I call it..) from Kinda Eclectic stamp set is Perfect! Triple layering was very popular not so long ago and it works great with these Retro color layers instead of just white. What do you think?
