Hello, everyone! Today I’m sharing a card made using TE August Key Ingredients Kit. Can I just say WOW? This kit has such gorgeous, rich, colors in it and some fun polka dot washi tape. The Prima Doodle Deux 6×6 pad is full of beautiful paper and I love the eclectic feel to it.


For this card I used Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 164. This was such a fun sketch! The stamps are from Make it Amazing and were the perfect fit for the sketch.


The frame around the sentiment is embossed and I die cut the butterflies with some of the gorgeous patterned paper and sponged the edges. The flower is the center layer of one of the flowers that comes in the kit. I love how perfectly it fits in the center of the butterfly.

Here are the supplies I used:

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I know, Tuesday is an odd “Happy” day but I have a good reason. Two lucky ladies have been added to Taylored Expression’s Baker’s Dozen Design Team and I am one of them! Yay! I can hardly believe it but I was so thrilled to be asked to be a part of this amazing team. The other lucky lady is Shannon White. She’s a genius at coloring and her work shows it! Be sure to leave her some love!


My card today uses Make It Amazing, which simply put, is a gorgeous set and so versatile. I used white embossing powder on vellum and die cut the butterflies with the matching dies, Elegant Butterflies. Frame It Up 3 is another die that matches this set and I used it inside of the square. The background paper is Lily Bee Design Buttercup and is one of my favorite paper packs!

If you’re not familiar with Taylored Expressions, be sure to check out the store. The stamps are rubber and mounted on cling and are excellent quality. If you’re in need of some inspiration, be sure to take a peek at the gallery.

If you’d like to get to know the other team members better, take a look at their blogs. You’re in for a yummy treat!

Today I have a few projects to share with you using Lifestyle Crafts’ new Corner It Kit and 4×4 Alphabets. Can you say WOW? The Corner It Kit dies are beautiful and are wonderful for tags, cards, photos, journaling squares, and the list goes on. I made a set of tags using the new Corner It Kit and combined it with the Tag It Kit. I used the new 4×4 Alphabet, Parade, on these and they were the perfect size for the tags.


This is what the dies look like AND if you have a digital cutter, you get a code for the cutting files included in the box.

Corner It Kit


Here’s a card using the Corner It Kit, Nesting Butterflies, and Tag It Kit. DP for the tags and card is from Lily Bee Design Buttercup…my new favorite DP!


I have two more cards to share using the new 4×4 Alphabets Parade and Lollipop.





This card uses Lollipop and the butterfly is from Make It Amazing (Taylored Expressions). Again, I used Lily Bee Design Buttercup DP…did I mention I love this pack? 🙂


My last card uses the new 4×4 Alphabet Parade and Ramsay from Whipper Snapper Stamps. A simple, but cute, birthday card, perfect for a little one.

Happy Monday, everyone! I wanted to play along with the sketch challenge at Desconstructing Jen and this is what I came up with. This was a fun challenge and one that kept me thinking.

I used Make It Amazing by Taylored Expressions (aka TE) and the coordinating butterfly dies. The gorgeous roses are Prima Laraine Roses and the chic DP is Lily Bee Design – Buttercup. The paper in this pack is gorgeous and I love the muted grays in it!


I added some pearls to finish the card and used Copics (W7, W5, W3) for the butterflies. Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!
