End of May ... already?!

Can't believe it is the end of May already ... time sure is flying!

Reminder that the Taste of Summer promotion paper and stamp set comes to an end today - if you want in, make sure you order today before it's all gone forever.

Also, Stamp of the Month Just Sayin' is finished today as well.

Hope you all enjoy this day!

Yet another Typed Note card

It's really too bad this was a stamp of the month and no longer available because I think it has huge potential for so many types of cards.  This one is a retirement card going to one of my work colleagues who makes her great escape this month.

Found inspiration on Pinterest and here is my version ...

I used S1504 Typed Note (retired), Black ink, Honey ink, Black Versafine ink, C1494 Card Word Puzzle (retired), D1574 Take Note (Artbooking cartridge stamp set), Topiary Chevron ribbon, Darice clocks embossing folder, foam tape, Mini-stapler, 1" circle punch, Corner Rounder punch

Have a wonderful day!

Taste of Summer Workshop

Wow, May has been so busy and is flying by!  

I have a Taste of Summer workshop coming up on May 31st so I have been busy working on some creations for it ... here is one of the 7 cards (so far!) that I have ready for the class ... if you'd like to join us, I have a few more spots available.  Let me know before Tuesday (May 26th) so that I have everything prepped in time.

The paper pack is only $8.95 and only available for the month of May, as long as supplies last.  There is also a wonderful stamp set that complements it which is available for $19.75.  You can find them both on my website at

Blossom Cardmaking Workshop on the Go Class - so much fun!

I recently held the Blossom Cardmaking class and it was great fun seeing all the variations the ladies created.  Once I get their permission to post theirs, I'll hopefully add theirs as well.  But for now, here are mine.

Here's how they are supposed to be made ...

Here are the variations ...

Typed Note

I'm so sorry this set is now retired - I just love it!  Hopefully you didn't miss out!

Here I used it to make thank you cards for my ladies .... used the Typed Note, April's Stamp of the Month set, our Chevron border punch, black ink, versafine black ink for the typewriter and foam tape.  Loved how it turned out!

Have an incredible day!
