Random Friday :)

Hey, there. 

Thought I would share a card set that I made for one of Colin's teachers a few months ago.  I may have shared this one before – sorry – but I wanted to show off the use of Sizzix embossing folders. 

If you are addicted to embossing on cards and such, you must try Sizzix folders out.  Get this: they cover the whole front of a card.  Genius, huh?  Yes, no trimming needed.  And they work in the Cuttlebug just like the other embossing folders.  I will share my favorites below.

People often ask how I give the cards to people.  I put matching envelopes that are stamped, along wth postage, in a clear box with some fancy ribbon.  Easy.  You can get the clear boxes at the wonderful Papertrey Ink HERE.

You can see all the Sizzix folders I like HERE.  My favorite sets?  THIS and THIS and THIS.

About the Silhouette – Someone (very nicely) emailed me asking if I really liked my Silhouette that much or if it was a paid endorsement.  Nothing on my blog is paid – I don't do sponsorships, etc.  If you see me promoting a product, you can be sure it is because I love it.  And the Silhouette is on the top of my list of loves. :)

One last thing…

Calling all cardmakers! Basic Grey has new 6×6 paper pads in essential sets.  PERFECT for cards.  Let's just say – I bought a *few.*  :)   This is something I will use for a long time.  Check them out HERE.


OK… time to try and catch up and buy a flight for a weekend away with a dear friend.  Night!

  6. Absolutely breathtaking. You use colour like nobody’s business! You’re such an inspiration! I couldn’t agree with you more about the new BG paper packs. They were a stroke of genius. I can’t wait to get my hands on em (and to see the amazing things you make with them.) Wish they were digital. They’d make such ink friendly digi papers! :o )
