Summer Hello Slimline

Hi Angels!

Boy is this Grammy tired. Little Miss Nora came to visit & spend the night & even she was so tuckered out, she fell asleep on the way home this afternoon. We had lots of fun & did a wee bit of artwork together of course.

I did start a Bible Journaling page yesterday but it’s not quite finished so I opted for a quick card tonight. I had done a trial cut of the A Jillian Vance Design Slimline Signature Polka Dot Cover Plate die on red but hadn’t designed anything yet. I enjoyed playing with the daisies so much a couple of days ago that I created a cute summer hello.

I also used the Essentials Backdrop die that has coordinating stitching and dug up my big hello & daisy set from FSJ. This will make a great kindness card to

I have a couple of busy days the next couple of days so this Grammy better get some rest.

More on my kindness project soon.

Have a Fabulous Week!

Heart Smile

Hi Angels!

Sometimes the best kindness is to yourself, especially after dealing with a migraine on Tuesday. Yesterday I ran a couple of errands, did a little troop work and then just chilled. Today I did something I haven’t done in awhile and that was just poke around a couple of stores with no real agenda, then treated myself to lunch. Of course in addition to being kind to me, I also left a nice tip for my waitress. Most restaurants are still not at full capacity so there’s just not the tips for the waitstaff like usual.

Tonight I got my main worktop cleaned off & tidied, then created a quick card using the heart cutouts from the faith, hope & love card I posted last week.

The hearts are from A Jillian Vance Design Slimeline Heart Window & Words Cover Plate die set. I always love projects that I can create a 2 for one and this cover plate set offers just that.

Since there are obviously no slimline embossing folders as far as I know, I experimented with the Ornate Floral folder from Stampin’ Up! to see if I could get an even emboss flipping the cardstock piece. If you look close there is a thin meeting line but overall I had good success on my 2nd attempt. The smile is from a Sizzix set & the daisies are an old retired FSJ set.

Thanks for stopping by.

Faith Hope & Love Slimline

Hi Angels!

Well I thought I would get this posted yesterday but a day out in the heat & humidity just wore me out. I will be hiding out in the house the next couple of days as they are predicting it will stay hot for awhile.

Our final slimline card for class was the easiest one. I let the dies do the work for us with some pretty paper.

I am loving the coordinating sets of slimline dies from A Jillian Vance Design. This card features the Essentials Backdrop and Heart Window & Words sets. Simple & elegant.

I hope everyone is having a good week so far. The weekend is just ahead. I hope your plans include some creative time.

Thanks for popping in!
