Hello friends - happy Wednesday! This week is craaaaawling... anyone else finding that? I'm busying myself with lots of crafting but next week can't come soon enough - my kiddo is back to school and I can have a few hours of sanity again!
When he was little, I swore I would never be that mom who wished school would start again... but as every parent knows, we're all holier than thou until we actually have our own kids!! Parenting is humbling, my friends. It really is.
Meanwhile, in my craftroom... I borrowed Lemon Zest from a friend and now I can't wait until mine arrives! I started off by replicating a card I had made a while ago with a similar stamp set we used to have, called Apple Of My Eye. Sometimes replicating an old design is an easy way to break the ice! I love how this card turned out with the fresh colour combination of Lemon Lime Twist and Flirty Flamingo.
And then I whipped up another, using So Saffron (when was the last time I used So Saffron?!), Lemon Lime Twist, and Berry Burst. I love the coordinating Lemon Builder Punch - it makes these cards so dang easy!
But the best part of this stamp set? Coordinating inside sentiments! I love that this version is sassy. In case making lemonade isn't really your thing! Hahaha.
This stamp set and coordinating punch are available 24/7 in my online store from the Annual Catalogue, but guess what?
Have you heard? The full Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Holiday Catalogue will be available on September 1st; I've seen it (and ordered from it!) already and trust me, you're going to LOVE it! Want some FREE holiday goodies?
Yeah - I said free! This month's ordering bonus is a GREAT ONE! This bonus is for August only, and only through my Online Canadian Stampin' Up! Store! Read on...
I'm also busy this week whipping up a video tutorial for this beauty of a card, which will be featured on the blog soon - but this tutorial is an exclusive freebie for my newsletter subscribers! Want to have it delivered to your inbox? Check it out...
That card was so much fun to make and I can't wait to share all of it with you!
Thanks so much for stopping in today - I'll see you again tomorrow as the Artisan Design Team launches a brand new stamp set. You won't want to miss it!
