Pretty Petals {with CDS link}

One of my favorite stamp sets from the 2014 Annual Inspirations is Pretty Petals.  It's Cricut compatible so I'm in love!

I paired Pretty Petals with the Hopscotch papers.  This is one of my favorite card sketches since it can showcase 4 of the 6 patterns in a paper pack.  The strips are cut at 3.5" x 1."  The top Glacier piece is 4 x 1.75.  The shimmer trim covers up any uneven strips for a flawless look.  It's also great for using up scraps unless you're cutting it for a workshop!  

Here's the Pretty Petals C1599 Stamp Set.  See the red outlines?  They show the corresponding Art Philosophy shape and what size to cut it.  
Hide the shapes you don't want or you can quickly cut them all.  

Hopscotch and the Junebug Puffies are here for only 4 months.  They'll be disappearing no later than March 31, 2015.  Get them here before they're gone!

March Seasonal Sampler

It's time to order your spring seasonal sampler!   We'll be making this one in March but it could last through most of the spring months!

The March sampler is bursting with color, dimension and texture!  We'll be using the CTMH Brushed paper pack and Vellum Complements, Junebug Puffies, Green & Pink glitter papers, Adhesive Springs and the Slate Striped Twist Ties.  

The bunny is on a spring so he hops!  

We'll be making a beautiful rolled rose for the center of the cross.  It and the bunny are cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  This sampler covers the March winds, St. Patrick's Day, April Showers, Easter and Spring itself!  

If you'd rather not have a hopping bunny or Easter cross on the sampler, I've designed a 10th sampler square with a tree.  This pic was taken with my cell phone.  With a little patience of applying 3D foam tape under the branches and better lighting, your square will look 10 times better! 

This tree features the Junebug Puffies, which are dimensional glittery stickers. They're only available through March 31, 2015 but they may sell out early.  Be sure to order them before it's too late!

To use up a bit of the scraps and most of the remaining vellum complements, we'll also make 4 cards.  

The kit is $23.  If you are ordering the kit to go, you will receive illustrated instructions in your email.  I can
