Natures Beauty – Gather Together and Give Thanks

Happy Fall Y’all!

I know, this week I should be sharing a Halloween project but I hope you’ll forgive me for not doing a spooking trick-or-treat card. You see, since my girls are grown and the grands living in other states, I simply haven’t a reason to even think about Halloween. I do however, absolutely LOVE Thanksgiving because, while I always work on being thankful and grateful for everything, everyday, November is the month many more of us are thinking about it. Sooooo, this weeks tutorial features another Thanksgiving project.

Natures Beauty

This weeks tutorial features the Natures Beauty stamp set, which is in the 2019 Holiday Catalog. $3 of every sale of this stamp set goes toward mental health organizations. I hope you will help me support mental health by purchasing this set.

Here’s the card:

Adventure Pocket Card with Stampin’ UP!s See A Silhoutte DSP

This weeks tutorial is a cool take on a greeting card!

This week I wanted to share with you a different way to send greetings. Most greeting cards either fold up or fold left, and we have created some pretty stinkin’ cute cards that way! But, this week, let’s create a pocket card. It’s super easy! The card insert can be a gift card holder too by simply making the card insert 1/2″ longer and folding it at that 1/2″ mark.
