Clear Scraps Brag Bag...

Hi all! I'm going to share with you a mini album from Clear Scraps. They have the cutest little Brag Bags. The shapes that all of these bags incorporate are just the cutest and are perfect for bragging about the ones that you love! There is even a suitcase/briefcase one for traveling or for the men in your life!

Today I'm going to share with you the Deco Brag Bag. I used  the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist collection and some favorite photos of my family.

All of the scalloped photo mats, hearts and flowers were cut using Spellbinders dies. The doily stamps are also from My Mind's Eye. Hope you all are having a wonderful Tuesday (although it feels like a Monday!) Thanks for popping in!

Flourishes Blog Hop

We don’t need to tell you that tags and labels are two of the trendiest items to hit the card making market in a long time! And, to help you add style and pizzazz to your creations, Flourishes has teamed up with Spellbinders Paper Arts to make sure you have the perfect set of stamps to match a darling set of tag style dies. Wonderfully whimsical and reminiscent of Grandma’s calico prints, Flourishes  “charming” set offers three labels that coordinate perfectly with Spellbinders Grommet Tags (S4-322). Designed by Becky Fleck, you'll also find 6 beautiful sentiments and 4 accent stamps to dress up your labels! Pair that with Flourishes Country Charm Borders and you have the perfect set to make darling note cards in minutes. Flourishes coordinating Country Charm Borders set features five border strips that match the labels set to a tee. What fun!

I made three cards using these stamp sets. You'll notice that mine were done with out using the coordinating Spellbinder's Grommet Tags Templates, but these stamps are so versatile and easy to use with whatever die templates you may have on hand.

For the scalloped edges on this card I used the Spellbinder's Grand Scalloped Squares Templates

For this card I used three different templates...Lattice Rectangles,
Classic Rectangles LG, and Classic Scalloped Ovals SM

For this last card I used the Labels Five Templates

Because Flourishes knew this set was a match made in heaven with Spellbinder's Grommet Tags,  both design teams are joining forces for a fun-filled show and tell blog hop! Make sure to hop on over and see....

Keep in mind, if you like what you see, both the Country Charms Labels and Country Charms Borders are available now -- just click the links to see! Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Cup Cards to Go continued...

Thought I would share with you all the rest of the cards that I made using the May kit from Cup Cards to Go...super cute kit full of new springish items (yep, I made up springish :) )

and this last one ended up being my favorite. I just took the entire sheet of Basic Grey rub ons and adhered the whole thing to the front of the card and then cut an opening in it using my Spellbinders Labels One die template and added another rub on inside for the sentiment then topped it all off with a little bling and that luscious chocolate brown satin ribbon!

Thank you so much to Cassonda for having me as her guest designer this month. All of the kit details and photos are listed in my previous post if you have a hankering to go and purchase one for yourself!
