Looking for a weekend of fun, food, crafting and fellowship?  Come join me at the Preserving Memories crop.  There is still time to sign up!

Whether you scrapbook or make cards, all crafters are welcome.  Amy works hard to make this a great event.  

I will be there with a full display showing project samples from the New 2019 Holiday Catalog.  I will be offering a free Make-n-Take and copies of the Holiday catalog.  Weekend prizes and a crop special too for those that place a $50 product order with me.

Keep watch for information on my upcoming crop which will be taking place November 8 & 9, 2019 in Walton Hills, Ohio.  Flier and full information will be released soon or you can email me at lbrown140@gmail.com 


It's your time to shine... with Daisies

Hey!  Did you know that there is a New Daisy Punch?

Stampin' Up! is calling it the Medium Daisy and it is the perfect match or compliment to the larger Daisy Punch we carried over from the last catalog.  Now you can layer the two punches together like I did on my 'It's your time to shine' card.  The words are from the stamp set "Daisy Lane".  The stamp set coordinates with both punches and you can purchase the Daisy Lane Bundle at a 10% discount! 

Oh, and this is my Team Swap card... I will be sharing the others shortly.

I used Petal Pink card stock for the base, a layer of Whisper White and the top background paper is the gorgeous Perennial Essence Design Series Paper! 

Paper Saving Tip:  stamp and punch your daisies from the Whisper White layer!!!

Stamp two large daisies and two smaller daisies in Petal Pink ink.  Attach each layer with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

My flower center is the metal embellishment called Designer Element found on page 178 of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  You get one sheet of these in 3 finishes!  I used the Antique Copper finish.  These are my new favorite embellishment in the Annual catalog. 

Leaf Punch was used with Old Olive card stock.

Sprig Punch was used with Vellum card stock. 

See below for my entire list of products I used to make this card.... and let me know if you have questions.  You can email me at lbrown140@gmail.com

Birds and Magnolias

Can you believe summer is winding down and kids are heading back to school already?  I went to Target this week and school supplies, backpacks, sales, and general buzz was all over the store.  My niece and nephew are heading back real soon and I don't know who is more relieved?  My brother and sister-in-law, the kids to be able to see their friends or Mammy (SIL's mom); who watches them along with my two other nieces that are are 3 and 20 months.  Mammy has her hands full!

Here is a lovely card using the Free As A Bird Bundle and Magnolia Lane Designer Series paper.  Combining products from different suites gives extra ideas.  So the Magnolia Lane paper can be used with more than the magnolia set.  Just coordinate the colors!

I hardly ever use our standard Whisper White card stock as a card base.  So when I do, I like to double layer the inside of the card to add some weight to it.  Do you do the same?  What do you do on the insides of your cards?
