Bordering Blooms

Standard

I love mixing a neutral and a bright color!  It adds a great contrast and pop to the project… this is the case with August!!image

 

 

This Bordering Blooms stamp set is SUPER fast and easy to use.  They are longs trips of images and perfectly spaced to do the outside images in one step and the inside in another set!  Tip Top Taupe and Daffodil Delight are the colors used here.  I am a Kansas Girl.  And, these little flowers faintly remind me of sunflowers (my FAVORITE).  And, August is a good month for sunflowers!

Butterflies in the Backyard

Standard

Sweet butterflies!  We have some lantana in our backyard that attracts a particular kind of butterfly (Not a bermuda bay butterfly… but still)  Zeke and Hannie love to watch and chase them.  So, this Butterfly Basics stamp set creates the ‘perfect backyard’ on paper….  I love the leaf stem.  I’ve used it multiple times on projects.  Makes a great central image as well as a great background image!image

 

 

The butterfly punch makes punching butterflies out a breeze!image

Spring Flowers!

Standard

 

I’ve lived in Hawaii long enough that I am now able to recognize the subtle change in seasons. (I admit, the first couple of years, I really couldn’t tell much difference.)  And, although there isn’t the drastic vision of a tulip emerging from the cold ground as a sign of spring on it’s way, that idea of spring flowers still seems to be a ‘March’ image in my mind.  SO….  I just had to use these flowers for March!image

 

 

These are from the Garden in Bloom stamp set.  It’s a 2 step set, so it is super easy to get the insides and outsides of the flower 2 different colors.

And, that little stapler will continue to be one of my most favorite tools.  It’s perfect for attaching the banner punch out here…  imageAnd spring always makes people ‘happy happy’!
