Avery Elle December Release Blog Hop

It is the time for some more fun products from Avery Elle. You should come from fabulous Karolyn Loncon. If not, please start at Avery Elle / Jamie's blog.

I used Bee Mine stamp and die set for my projects today.

The first is a fun shaker card. I cut the card panel with Bee Mine die and adhere the acetate stamped with Bee Mine stamp. The hearts were cut out using heart dies from various Avery Elle stamp and die set. The sentiment is a combination of two sentiments from previous Avery Elle stamp sets.


I used the Bee Mine stamp and Avery Elle you are invited die for some kids' valentine gift. I stamped image on die cut, colored some, punched holes on both end of the die and inserted a honey stick. I think it will be a fun and simple project for my kids to make for their valentine exchange in their classroom.


Your next stop is Caryn Davies.  Here is the entire list if you ever get lost.

Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine Special Thanks Blog Hop


You should come from Jill Dewey Hawkins, If not, you can start at Jennifer McGuire's blog.

It is a sad sad day to have to write this post. When the news came and I thought it was a joke until a couple days later seeing go-to gals's posts. I was shocked and lost. If I did not stump over Moxie Fab World a few years ago, I would not have paper craft as a serious hobby. It will be just one of those things I do once in a while.

I loved the inspiration I got Moxie Fab World and started checking the site everyday, then I stated joining the challenges and the magazine submission.  This hobby makes me see  more patterns, colors, and inspiration everywhere in daily life that I did not notice before. It does make life more colorful and fun.

I know there are other magazines closed the door, But I did not think it would happen to Paper Crafts & Scrap-booking. Because PC&S built a community! I want to say Thank you and hope the best for everyone working for PC&S!

For my card, I used Avery Elle Fabulous Floral, We R Family and Many Thanks stamp sets. The images were heat embossed and water colored.


Your next stop is Melissa Cash.

Avery Elle Finished Frames

Happy Tuesday.
I made a Thanksgiving card using Avery Elle finished frame die and Seasonal sentiments stamp.
I colored some circles using watercolor on watercolor card stock. Then I stamped and embossed the sentiments after watercolor circle was dry. Avery Elle finished frames die has set of two frames with some small dies. I love the details the finished edges adds to the card. The smaller frame die is perfect to frame a small image or make a project life card.
