The Love From Lizi July card kit is so full of summery goodness. You may have already seen how I combined the tassels that came in the kit with some of the stamps and a touch of ink blending.

I’m doing double-duty with this card. I think this is the first time I’ve ever done so, but the card was perfect for both of the challenge posts I needed to design for today, so I figured I’d do them together! It’s the start of our July challenge at Christmas At Sweet Stampin’ where we … More DIY Action Wobbler | Christmas In July | TMR #115/CASS | Video

The layout is of course from My Favorite Things. The summer theme comes from both Mod Squad and 4 Crafty Chicks. Addicted to CAS asked for … More Summer Sunset

At last, the third and final card of the day. (But who’s counting, right…?) Four challenges went into the creation of this card. The layout comes from The Paper Players.
