My daughter, Ariane, is on the board of her Hall Council at Georgia Tech. When she was home for spring break she wanted to make some thank you cards for the people who helped out throughout the year. Just Add Color Designer Series Paper was the perfect choice for these “housing” thank you cards.
Ariane used Stampin’ Blends to color the different houses and then fussy cut each one out. She loved using the new Stamparatus which made adding the sentiment a breeze! Here’s a few photos.
The Whisper White note cards & envelopes made putting this project together a breeze. The cards are prescored and ready to go. Ariane used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the houses to her cards. Here’s a look at all 13 of her colorful cards!
I love that my daughter wanted to create together and make some thank you cards for others. The Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper is retiring and you can save 30% (reg. $13 / NOW $9.10) when you buy it now! It is only available while supplies last so click HERE to order yours today! There are other fun designs is this paper pack too!

Welcome to my Holiday ABC series. I love Christmas music! I could listen to Christmas carols year round! Unfortunately I can’t sing. (Many a friend will agree! LOL) At least my Pre K students don’t seem to mind. I may not be able to sing the right notes; however, I create some “notes”. Today’s cards feature the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper. I made a set of note cards for my daughter’s former violin teacher. My daughter visits her when she is home from college and brings her our homemade fudge for Christmas every year. I know she will appreciate these cards (maybe not as much as her favorite fudge but at least these are calorie free).
I love a black & white card! I can’t decide which sheet I like best. So many choices!
Here’s a look at each of the cards.
This is a clean & simple layout and a great way to showcase your favorite DSP. (Don’t forget select DSP is on sale through the end of October…Buy 3, Get 1 FREE! Only a few days left to stock up & save!)
The DSP measures 3×3 and I layered each with a 3 1/4 square of Basic Black cardstock. I used the Pretty Pines Thinlits to cut my boughs from Garden Green, Old Olive, and Real Red cardstock. I adhered these and the Red Ribbon bow with Glue Dots. I stamped the sentiment from Flourishing Phrases in Basic Black and cut it (and the Real Red scallop piece) with the Layering Ovals Framelits. I adhered the sentiment layer to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Quick & easy! What a great gift idea for teachers, hostesses, musicians, etc. You get 4 each of 6 double-sided designs in the pack so there’s plenty of paper to make matching envelopes too!
Do you have a favorite? The Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper is part of the Merry Little Christmas Suite. I confess that I bought everything in this suite. I love it all! This suite has everything you need to make holiday crafting easy…from tags and cards to gift packaging and memory keeping. Check out the video showcasing this suite.

I interrupt my regularly scheduled post to bring you some happy mail. When I came home last night from my book club meeting there was a package sitting on the counter for me. (Both my husband and I are terrible about remembering to get the mail!) One look at the envelope and I couldn’t wait to open it!
Cute, right? When I opened it, I was amazed to find this gorgeous purse!! Daisies, my favorite! There was a note enclosed and I can’t tell you how much it touched my heart. It was from a blog reader, Kathy Royce. She saw this on Splitcoast Stampers and said she had to make one especially for me. She thought it was perfect timing because I was doing this fun fold series. Oh my Gosh!!! I am so blessed!
The clutch purse was designed by Dee Slater and you can bet I will be checking out Splitcoast Stampers for directions to CASE it too! (Kathy, if you are reading this, post the link in the comments or email me and I will update with the link.)
It gets even better….when I opened it there were 4 gorgeous note cards enclosed! WOW! What an exciting surprise!
Here’s a close up of each of these adorable cards and custom envelopes.
I am one lucky person! I love to create and it brings me joy if I can inspire others to share handmade kindness. Kathy, you made my day!!! I am honored to be the recipient of this generous gift and kindness.
Please leave a comment for Kathy and then make someone’s day…send a card to someone today!
Have a wonderful weekend!

I really love the simplicity of this sympathy card and I will be mourning the loss of the products used the create it. Yesterday Stampin’ Up! posted the retirement list and the Crumb Cake Note Cards (133766), Floral Affection Embossing Folder (#141713), and Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper (#141632) are all on the retiring products list and only available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. I love these products! The good news is some of these are on sale so you can take advantage and get a good deal! Don’t wait though as retiring products tend to sell out fast (especially if they are on sale)!
The base of my card is a Crumb Cake Note Card. You’ve heard me say before how these are such a great deal (20 note cards & envelopes for $6). I added a layer of Whisper White which measures 3 x 4 1/2. I embossed this piece with the Floral Affection Embossing Folder and adhered a layer of 1 1/4 x 3 DSP along the left edge. I stamped the sentiment from Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set in Momento Black ink (also retiring). I wrapped some Whisper White Baker’s Twine, tied a bow, and adhered this layer to my card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I have used the embossing folders in this set on several cards in the past. Before they “Rest In Peace” let’s take a look down Memory Lane at some cards I’ve created with the Floral Affection Embossing Folders.
I hope you enjoyed this little trip down Memory Lane with the Floral Affection embossing folders. I will miss them!!! They are replacing the Crumb Cake note cards & envelopes with Very Vanilla so I am OK with that though I would rather just have all 3 colors to choose from. 🙂

One of the events at World Card Making Day in Atlanta was a Make & Take using the Hello December 2016 Project Life Card Collection and Accessory Pack. I confess I had never tried Project Life. (I was a Creative Memories consultant for many years before I started stamping and I love their scrapbooks!) My eyes were opened to new possibilities as we played with the Project Life kit. Who knew you could make cards as well as scrapbook pages with these kits?! This is what I made with the kit and some Stampin’ Up! Note Cards & Envelopes.
I was amazed at all that comes in the kit (including an exclusive stamp set). I still have many items left to play with and use even after making all these cute cards and tags. And I know I will use the stamp set on other projects (and journal boxes in my scrapbooks). If you haven’t given Project Life a try now is the best time to check it out!
