I love me some papers from the Cherry Blossom Retreat Collection.

How about some Stickles on simple, punched shapes?

You can fussy cut these bits from the paper, but you can also use Ticket and Tags Die.

Papers and dies are from the Cherry Blossom Retreat Collection.

Have a beautiful day

So, I had these bits and bobbles floatin' hither and yon for quite some time. I know the pink and black papers are from Random by Crate Paper but I'm not sure about the floral? Colorbok? Ain't it pretty, though? I do miss those old collections from Crate Paper. Their colors schemes spoke to my wee, stone cold heart. The sentiment is a digi from Whimsy Stamps.

Sun Kiss


Using the old stuff some. The papers are from Sun Kiss by Prima. You know, their 12x12 papers are wonderful. I find their 6x6 papers to feel... cheap. Is it because I ordered it from JoAnn? 
Or Hobby Lobby? The stamp here is from Summer By the Sea by Stampin' Up. I don't have many SU stamp sets but this set is definitely a keeper. I took a quick peek and you can definitely get it at a reasonable price on eBay.

This stamp is a digi called Peonies in a Vase from Beccy's Place. I printed it on Kraft and colored with Prismacolor pencils.

Seach "Sun Kiss" on my blog to see more cards with this collection. They're actually better than these...

Thanks for stopping by!

Simple Bouquet

The papers are from Time for Tea by Cosmo Cricket. Yep, old. This floral stamp is an old digi from Whimsy Stamps. It is no longer available, but Whimsy's digital collection is worth checking out. I just saw that they're carrying Meljens Digital Stamps and I'm delighted! I rarely do cute style stamps 
but I love hers.

Thanks for stopping by!
