Happy Friday, Friends!
Today I have one last Thanksgiving card to share, made with the adorable Pumpkin Spice collection by Simple Stories.
Fall is such a happy time of year, and that’s just what this collection is, too…. happy! Love the bright colors mixed with rustic tones of woodgrain and gingham.
I do love Simple Stories’ chipboard frames, and use them all the time for framework on my cards. This time, I created a fun fall scene with a SN@P card background and Bits & Pieces die cuts.
The die cut fence behind the frame really adds to the fall scene here and helps create the illusion of depth and space. I added a tiny bit of twine and a few enamel dots. Popped some of the layers with foam tape for a bit of extra dimension.
Thanks so much for stopping by! It’s my birthday weekend, and I’m hoping to make the best of it. :D Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, too!

Happy Monday! Today I have a Thanksgiving card to share, made with Simple Stories’ adorable Pumpkin Spice collection.
Just a simple card, with lots of pretty paper layers. The pumpkin is a 3×4 SN@P journaling card, and the sentiment is cut from one of the Element Sheets. Die cut flowers, enamel dots and a bit of twine.
Such a perfect sentiment for this time of year. November is always that last little moment to catch your breath before the rush of December sweeps in. Time to count your blessings. Time to give thanks for family and friends. Always makes me a little gushy, but this year I am feeling particularly reflective. See not only is it almost Thanksgiving… this is also my birthday week, too. And it is a super big birthday for me. The big 5-0.
I am trying to embrace 50, but it is a mixed bag of emotions, for sure. What I do know is that I’m thankful for all my many blessings, for my family, my home, my friends, and thankful for all of YOU! And while I’m thinking on it, I thought it was the perfect time to share. So thanks for letting me be mushy today! And thanks for stopping by!
Hello Friends, happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Today I have a fall card to share with you featuring Simple Stories’ adorable new autumn-inspired collection, Pumpkin Spice.
I absolutely love the warm colors and prints in the Pumpkin Spice collection. Although this is a fall themed line, I think it could be used for so much more. There’s earthy tones for spring and summer, and traditional colors perfect for the holidays…. but add in a touch of orange and russet and you know fall is here.
I always love working with the chipboard pieces on card designs, as they provide a great framework for my focal point. In this case, a cute fall garden scene made up of die cuts from the Bits & Pieces ephemera pack.
I added a die cut cloud image above the frame to extend the view, and popped some of the images up with foam adhesive for a bit of extra dimension. A scalloped cardstock border sticker and twine tie finish things off.
I’ve got a second fall-inspired Pumpkin Spice card up on the Simple Stories blog, if you’d like to see more. And I’ll link you to all of the supplies below.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a great day!
Hello, hello everyone, and happy Monday! It’s the start of an exciting week for me, and I’m so glad you are here. Tomorrow is September 1st, and of course that means that my new shop will finally be open! Such a big day for me, and eyeyiyiii, there is still so much left to be done. There are projects that need finishing and PayPal buttons to tackle, and goodness knows this is all new to me. Keep your fingers crossed for me, my friends. Today is going to be a very nerve-wracking, exhilarating, bumpy ride…
So this week is also very exciting in our house because on Wednesday, my boy will be celebrating his 20th birthday! And since this weekend is Labor Day, I will get three whole days to spend with him! He hasn’t been back at college long…. but I always miss him like crazy.
This year I’ve decided to have a little fun with his gifts. He doesn’t pay much heed to my fancy gift wrapping, but I think these silly Bird Crazy birds will catch his attention.
And maybe the shaker tag element will, too.
I have got the complete step-by-step tutorial up on the Sizzix blog, if you’d like to learn more. And I’ll link you to all the supplies I’ve used below.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Wish me luck for smooth sailing today!

Hello, hello! Happy Friday! Today I have a card to share featuring the adorable new fall collection from Simple Stories, We Are Family.
We Are Family is a bit of a take off of the popular I Am collection from earlier this year. This cute line focuses on all things family, as you can gather from the name of course, with a special emphasis on gratitude and counting your blessings. So perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. But also great, as always, for so much more.
Recently, I made a couple of all-occasion We Are Family cards for the Simple Stories blog, showcasing some other ways you can use this collection. And today I thought I would share the first one with you here. A sweet little friendship card in a cute 4.5″x4.5″ size.
I’ve got tips and details, along with a second card, up on the Simple Stories blog, if you’d like to learn more.
Just a few more days until my shop opens! So excited!
Thanks for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
