It’s time for the Fall Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop over at Coffee Loving Cardmakers!! Now I am a lover of coffee, but the image I used today from Unity’s September 2015 KOTM (Our Hearts to Yours) had me thinking PEPPERMINT HOT CHOCOLATE!!! Have you ever had one of those?? Oh my goodness… they are incredible… and they just scream holidays to me. 😉

I kept my card super light and airy (almost made me think of snow LOL) with just a bit of added texture from the embossing folder in the back.

Stephanie Gold Bows for Boston Felicity Jane Golden Simplicity

Hey everyone! I wanted to share something with you today that really broke and touched my heart. A fellow crafter recently lost her baby girl named Boston and the crafty community is stepping up to provide support, kindness, and love to her family. They have created the Bows for Boston “campaign” where you can send bows along with notes of love and encouragement to Boston’s mama and family. I have created a little card for them that I will share with you today.

I combined Maggie Holmes Bloom Collection with dies by Lil Inker Designs (this is a special sneak peek at some new release LID square dies you will see very soon) and Papertrey Ink. This LID bow die is so simple to use but you can send any bow or note at all. Here’s to hoping we can all share some extra love with this sweet family during such a difficult time.

Hey friends! Some time ago I put together a set of cards for my church that I loved so much and wanted to share with you today. I used a combination of Maggie Holmes Open Book products and Papertrey Ink stamps and dies.

The stamp sets I used were A Cheerful Heart and Choose Joy. The sentiments in these sets are some of my favorites.

Each card is the same layout with just a couple details changed. This made for a quick process and a fun eclectic finish on a cheerful card set.
