More than Meets the Eye!


Hi! I'm here with a simple Paper Craft Planet sketch to help you welcome the weekend!  At first glance, it is a super clean and simple design, but you'll see from the open tri-fold card that there is more than meets the eye.  I've used a couple of newly released Flower Soft stamps (You've Reached the Top! and  Little Friend) to construct a cute scene that goes along with the sentiment, which is the only thing that's visible when the card is closed. 


Feel free to make your design as simple or as detailed as you like!  Can't wait to see what you come up with!  Be sure to upload it to the PCP gallery, and link to your creation in the challenge thread

I have a little surprise BONUS for you on the PCP blog, so be sure to check the bottom of that post for more info!

April ClubCR8

This month's edition of ClubCR8 is now LIVE!  It can be yours for just $8, less than the cost of 2 cups of coffee!  I hope you'll join us!


Have you seen this month's new sets from The {Stamps} of Life? So many adorable images, but I think my FAV is this new alphabet

Since my current focus is following doctor's orders so that I can get healthy, and yoga is one of the things he's prescribed, I couldn't resist combining the lotus flower from froggy2love with a little "OM!" I love this combination of warm and cool colors and that little dangly Pink Paisley dragonfly!

New GRS Appetizers!

Gourmet Rubber Stamps is releasing two great new appetizer sets today!  The one I've used for today's card is called Butterfly Trio.  I love the versatility of these three butterflies...you KNOW that I love the music one, but there's also a solid one, and one that's "natural." That means you have all kinds of options!  

This Authentique designer paper was a perfect accompaniment for that lovely musical butterfly!  All the supplies I used are from i {heart} papers.

Visit the GRS blog, our design team's blogs, and of course, the new products page!

Lots of Dots!

If you've visited the Flower Soft FaceBook page recently, you know that all our Mabel Lucie Attwell products are on sale!  I pulled out my MLA Card-making Kit and a few sheets of polka-dot designer paper to make a pair of cute Spring cards.  

These were so fast and easy to make!  Sure to bring a smile!
