I will never stop believing in you!

I so love this mermaid from the Magical Mermaid set.  And this is a perfect card for one of the girls on my shop club team!  She is rocking it and doing an amazing job.  And I hear she loves mermaids so there is that too!

These are the most relaxing colors to me--so beachy.  Don't you agree.   And you probably can not see it on any of the pictures but there is some amazing sparkle on this card between the pearlized doily and the wink of stella!  Love sparkle.  Can never go wrong with sparkle--in my book.


I honestly need to order some new current designer papers as this is the only pack I have current at the moment!  What the What???  Seems crazy don't it. I usually have them all but my studio is much smaller than it used to be and I am struggling to figure out what to do with everything---but I NEED more designer paper, lol.  So many great ones in the catalog--especially the new holiday catalog!  

Here is a side-ish view of the card ....


I made two cards with this set while it was out so I will share the other one tomorrow.  Here are the supplies for this one...

The rest of the Paper Pumpkin Cards

Here are the other cards I made with the kit.  Actually I am holding two back as they are being sent to people who are on here and I want them to get them before  post them.

A quick post for you today...only thing added from yesterday is paper snips.  Oh one card uses dies instead...I forgot!




The mermaids tomorrow and Friday!

So sad summer is coming to an end.......

Good bye August and all the amazing summer 🌞weather that came along with you! 
I will miss you 😢

The only good news about the weather changing is that I will be getting back to crafting--I do miss it over the summer but our summers are so short here that I just can't get myself to spend any time inside if I don't have to! 

Due to some rain the other day I decided it is about time to get back at it.  I chose to start off with the newest Paper Pumpkin  Kit--which is kind of strange because I think that is what I left off with in July! 


I made 10 cards with the kit then felt like doing a bit more so I made two more with the awesome mermaid set!  Can't wait to share those with you all but it will have to wait a little bit as I want to share some of these cards first.  (sorry)

One of the things I really love about the Paper Pumpkin Kit is that it gets me  to use things I normally would not.  I kind of feel like it is cheating with these kits because they do  all the designing for you--makes it so easy  to make quick and beautiful cards.  So what I like to do is change the up just a bit--I don't like to add much because I want you to see that they can be changed up  with very limited supplies--this time I think I only added two pieces of card stock and one more color ink pad.  And I have 10 cards that are all just a bit different --since I do not EVER like to make the same card twice, lol. 

So here are 5 of the 10 cards today--I will show you the other 5 tomorrow--how does that sound?






Just small changed on all of them but just enough to keep me feeling like I am creating a bit, lol.  You may not be  able to see the awesome vellum leaves that were in the kit.  They were really fun to play with--and I have quite a few extras to play with at another time--WIN!

Stop back tomorrow to see what happens when I add a pair of paper snips to the mix!

Thanks for stopping I hope to see you again soon.

Guess it is about time to share these.....

Since we already have this month's Paper Pumpkin kit I think I should probably share the rest of the designs I made with last month's.  Yes!  I know I am a bit behind, been enjoying the summer with my family and forgetting to share.  Sorry.  (kinda)

Here are four more card designs I made with last months kits.  If you missed the first two you can view them HERE.

I really did have fun with this kit which is strange because I usually don't like kits that use stickers.  But this one was a good one.  It also matched the set in the Broadway Suite from the catalog....


I used only the kit for my projects along with a black pad and black marker....





See it really was a fun kit.  I made six different cards with only the product in the kit plus a black marker and pad.  Easy as could be.  You should really try out one of these kits some time.

Ask me how to get one -- I would love to help you out.

Make-- it and Mail it Monday--quick and easy style

Actually quick and easy is generally the the theme of my Make it and Mail it posts.  That is one of the ways I can get the card made and in the mail fast.  The goal is to mail more cards out--that are not overly decorated and cost extra to send.  Just a quick little note to let the people I care about know that I am thinking of them!

Here is today's Monday Mailer.....

 

I adore this new embossing folder!  It is a dynamic impressions version--which is much thicker than the original embossing folders and gives a super detailed deep design.  This folder is called Lovely Floral.  It is so fast and easy to create beautiful cards with this.  I just added a strip of the Share What You Love Specialty paper and a sentiment.  Oh yea, and a few pearls just because they are so pretty!

Here are the supplies used for my 5 minute card that is going to a friend who's father is not doing well and they just called in hospice.  So hard.

Take Two Tuesday! Bella style.

Seems I am finally getting back on track--Monday Mailer and Take Two Tuesday!  Yippee...I am so proud of myself, lol.

It has been a couple of weeks so I will answer that question--what is Take Two Tuesday? Each Tuesday I randomly--kinda 😏-- pick an older card from my stash to re-create using new products and ideas.  I have to admit that sometimes I like the old card better than the re-creation--but sometimes not!  At the end I always ask for your thoughts about which one you like best.  Kind of fun.

So here we go .....

My first picture is both cards together....


I actually think both cards are cute this week.  I didn't really think about the fact that the original card is a non Stampin Up image.  The paper is Stampin Up though.  I think that little dog came from a dollar bin at JoAnn's if my memory serves me correctly.  I thought that all of the little piece made the card adorable.  And the dog image too so I decided to stay with the dog theme and use Bella from Bella and Friends  Isn't she cute as can be????

I see now in the picture that maybe the words thank you should have been down a bit lower--I may have to change that after posting.   Other than that I think it turned out pretty cute.  The papers are from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Love the fun colors!

So here is the weekly question...
DO YOU LIKE THE OLD OR NEW CARD BETTER???

Here are the supplies used on the new card ....
