FAVORITE PROJECTS OF 2019


January Altenew

This card using Garden Picks 3D Dies was so fun to make!

Clean and simple is my most favorite so this card using Snail Mail was a quick and easy one!

Altenew March 2019

I love leaving these blooms in black and white and layering a bit of color underneath.  Wallpaper Art has several blooms and greenery to make a beautiful, simple card.



Altenew Stencil Release

Handpicked Bouquet is a must have.  Love the big bloom and the easy of layering in color.  Such a gorgeous set!

The Layered Dahlia Stencils are some of my absolute favorites.  I love how a little ink blending makes this gorgeous bloom!

One last set that I just love is Dot Botanicals.  Such a simple little touch of dots with a pop of color and you have an easy card with lots of flair!
