2020 Mini Catalog Feed

Black-n-White Peony

Hi there... thanks for stopping by.  I have a surprise combination for you with this card project. 

In the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog (aka... holiday catalog as I call it), there is a great product suite called Magic In this Night. You should click on that title and check it out, especially if you love Halloween!  Super cool stuff in that suite. 

For me though, my eyes went right to the Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I could see right past the Halloween themes and saw the really pretty black-n-white flowers, stripes, and ornate designs.  So that is what I choose as my background paper.  I love how this card came out!

SAVI Sunday (Stamping & Various Inspirations)

This weeks Savi Sunday (#25) features the Celebration Tidings Bundle, Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper and Black Glitter Paper.  

I love the Celebration Tidings Bundle as it is one of the New bundles in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog that is versatile.  It covers several different holidays which is always a plus in my book.  AND the Celebration Label Dies... I love nesting dies and I love the shape of these!

Fall Pumpkins in a Wheelbarrow

Fall pumpkins in a wheelbarrow... reminds me of when I was little. 

My parents would take me and my brother to a pumpkin patch to pick out our very own pumpkin.  It was the highlight of the season, and probably why the fall is my favorite time of the year.  My brother would dash off, running wildly towards the patch.  Mom yelling at him to slow down and wait.  He would always go for the biggest pumpkin he could possibly carry.  He did not care about the color, nicks nor scratches, or if it even had a stem. 

Me on the other hand, the perfectionist (I guess I should have known then) would look and look and look... until I found that perfect shape, that perfect stem arc, and the most perfect orange-colored pumpkin I could find.  It would take me ten times the amount of time, but I wanted the most beautiful pumpkin in the patch.  It was quiet maddening to my brother (tee hee).  

Any ways, this Autumn Goodness Bundle with pumpkins in a wheelbarrow, takes me back to those sweet, childhood memories.  Ones that makes you just smile and chuckle a little.

Fall Haystack and Fence

Autumn Goodness Bundle & Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper

Happy almost fall!  Are you getting ready for all the beautiful colors, fresh crisp air and pumpkins?  I am trying too but the weather in Northeast Ohio has been so great with lots of sunshine and warm temperatures that I am trying to enjoy as long as I can.  But in thinking ahead, I have created a start to fall. So here is a card project featuring the Autumn Goodness Bundle and also the fabulous Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP.

Seriously... I hope you can see all the detail on that fence!  Click on the photo and you should be able to zoom in.  

I did a half front flap card today and love how it came out with the details of the DSP and the fence always being in view.
