Spring may have sprung for many of you, but here in MN, Mother Nature is still trying to decide what season we’re in! We’ve had rain, sleet and snow this past week and today’s cards are making me want spring to come quickly! 🙂

This month I’m April’s Guest Designer over at Petaloo, WooHoo!!!  Many of you already use Petaloo, but if you haven’t heard of them, they have beautiful flowers and gorgeous embellishments and ribbon!  Be sure to check out all the fun HERE.  Here are a few cards I made for them that use a few other products I want to share with you.


This criss cross card uses Labels Detailz Dies, released yesterday at Lifestyle Crafts. Detailz Dies are dies that cut and emboss.   Isn’t this label pretty?  I love how Petaloo’s flowers and brads coordinate so well with the DP, Bella Blvd Spring Flings and Easter Things.



Here’s another card I made for Petaloo using Lockhart’s Vintage Apron stamp. I love this image and paper pieced it with Bella Blvd Spring Things and Easter Things “Borders”. The adorable resin rose is a Petaloo brad as well as the Mulberry flower/brad, and the perfect touch for this apron!   Now take a look at this cool gift bag…


Laurie has come up with a brilliant and innovative way to present a gift bag and card with her Card Hanger Dies. It’s a wonderful way to make sure your card doesn’t get lost in the bag! Here I used it for my gift bag, isn’t it pretty? I love how the card stock I used matches my bag perfectly!


The Card Hanger Die was so easy to use and really makes my gift bag look polished, don’t you think?  Hope you all have a great day!  🙂
