Avery Elle Bunting

Hello, blog friends!

I have a couple cards to share today. Both are made with Avery Elle Bunting stamp and die set. For my first card, I used long string die to cut from several colored card stock and arrange them to create the pattern. It is quick and fun.

I did some more stamping on the second card. I combined the new Bunting stamp set with a couple stamp sets from previous release. I used heart images from Sending you stamp and sentiment from Many Thanks stamp.

Avery Elle Berry Good

Hello, blog friends! I have two cards to share today. Both are made with new Avery Elle Berry Good stamp and die set.

For the first one I stamped small strawberry image in black on watercolor card stock and colored with watercolor. The vellum was cut with Just a note die and trimmed as a backdrop for the sentiment.

I wanted to make a Partridge in a pear tree card with the pear image an die. Pear was stamped on Avery Elle Everyday Collection patterned paper and die cut out. The tree as from Seasonal Sentiments from last release. The bird was from Noel set.

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.
