Kraft-y Heart Blog Share

Welcome to another Kraft-y Heart blog share.
It's been awhile since we took August off.
Kim and I have been creating with the Stamp of the Month,
It is quickly becoming one of my favorite SOTM sets.
Here is a double-page layout that I designed for a workshop.



This color background, with the sepia photos just does not photograph well.
Colors look much better in person, I'm just sayin'.
And the facing page...



I love, love, love this tree stamp.
The paper and accents are from the Pathfinding line.

And how about a coordinating card with the SOTM heart stamp.

The sentiment is from the stamp set of the same name,
"Have a Happy Day".
I hope you do just that.
Please hop on over to Kim's blog,
Violets and Sunshine to see what wonderful projects she has created.
edited to add:  I'm linking this up to the Paper Issues "Anything Goes" challenge.

Triple Hearts


I love the heart image from the SOTM.
I've been using it on cards on layouts left and right.
Here I stamped in Black and Cashmere to coordinate with the
Yuletide Carol paper once again.
The border was created with our Scallop Border Punch, a classic.
We postponed our Kraft-y Heart Blog Share until tomorrow.
Hope you all come back for that!
Have a wonderful weekend.
I am excited that I actually get to stay home this weekend!
Catching up on paperwork and then some studio time!

How about another "LOVE" card using the 
This one is also inspired by a sketch from
I added a bit of black bling and some Black Striped Twill  Ribbon.
The paper is from the
lovely Christmas line "Yuletide Carol".

Tomorrow Kim, of Violets and Sunshine, and I will doing a 
Kraft-y Heart Blog Share.
I wonder what she came up with?
I will be sharing the double-page layout that my customers made in class this week.
Then more SOTM cards.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Stamp of the Month


I just love the September Stamp of the Month.
One night I sat down with this stamp set and a few sheets of
this patterned paper from the
Yuletide Carol paper packet.
As you can see, this sheet can work for more than Christmas.
For this card I used the large tree image.
Every so pretty.
The sentiment is from the
#30yearsofhappy 
stamp set.
I will have more cards that go along with this set throughout the week.
I hope you came back to see!
