Starting A New Chapter

Starting a new chapter

I loved being a teacher. Both of my sisters were teachers. My sisters and I are retired, but I think it is so important to encourage teachers in the field. I have four nieces who are teachers. I made this card to wish them a wonderful new school year. The paper is from the fun paper pack called, Follow Your Art. The sentiment is from Check You Out, another new stamp set.

Nautical Thanks

This is a great card design to use with any of the pretty papers you have waiting to be used. I needed a masculine Thank You card so choose some paper from the Come Sail Away pack. I love how it turned out.

So Very Proud of You

So very proud of you

I love being an aunt. I have amazing nieces and nephews who mean the world to me. I made this card for a niece who completed her teaching degree. The paper on the front has markers, pens, and pencils - perfect for a teacher. I embossed the front with our new Scripty embossing folder, which gives the look of handwriting on the card front.

Let It Ride

Let it ride on burlap

I love this burlap paper from the Pressed Petals Designer Series paper pack. Stamping on this paper adds a different look to your stamping. The Stitched Rectangles make a great frame. I didn't put a sentiment on the front of the card, it doesn't need it. That way you can add a sentiment on the inside of the card for any occasion you need.

Pressed Petals Thanks

Pressed petals thank you

The Pressed Petals paper pack has so many choices. I really like how this card came together. I think yellow and blue are one of my favorite color combinations.

Magnolia Mood with Sympathy

Magnolia sympathy

The beautiful papers in Magnolia Lane make it so easy to make cards you will love to send. I choose to make a sympathy card, but this card would work with other sentiments on the front.
