Pocketful of Sunshine!

Posted by on Jul 27, 2017 in 3D, Big Shot, Birthday, Other | 0 comments

Today’s share was created with the Pocketful of Sunshine Bundle by Carolanne Fright.  Both the card and the pocket treat bag are absolutely lovely! Two rhinestones fell off the flowers before this photo was taken but you can see where they belong. Colors used on these projects are Dapper Denim and Peek-a-boo Peach. Just a little reminder that Bonus Days end on July 31.  For every $60. you spend in July, you will get a $6 coupon to use on your August order.  If you’d like to take advantage of Bonus Days, send me your order and I’ll take care of the rest!

This adorable swap card was created by Jenni Pauli.  The inside of the card has vellum pockets with card candy in each pocket–ready to put on a card when you need to make a quick card! It is larger than the standard card size but it was absolutely outstanding, decorated tastefully inside and out! If you haven’t guessed, I’m back from Thailand so now it’s time to start crafting again!  I’m excited about tomorrow’s post–my own creation that I made with retired paper, stamps, ink and ribbon for the Adult Special Needs class I’ll be starting to teach this week!  I hope you can come back to see my very own design, which I love! I’m still adjusting to Mountain Standard Time so this post is rather late, so I’ll plan to post earlier...

Here’s my first creation for  an Adult Special Needs class I’m starting to teach this week.  This card was made entirely with retired products:  stamps, ink, paper and embellishments.  The only current tools I used were the  2″ and 2 1/2″ circle punches. Do you have retired products and stamps in your collection? I would like to invite you to recreate this card using any retired supplies you have on hand!  If you take up my challenge, please send me a picture of your card and I’d love to post it on my blog! Thanks for visiting today.  Happy...

The room was air conditioned and chairs set up around the room to make us comfortable while time passed for us to leave for the airport to return home. My next post will be from Canada. I’m so excited to share amazing swap cards and projects I received!   See you...
