    Saying Goodbye Part 2, Plaid and Heartfelt

    Saying Goodbye Part 2 Here again Saying Goodbye part 2. Our first one has two ideas. This “thank you” card idea can be changed to any and yes ANY color combo. Plus with one run through the Stampin’ cut & Emboss you get two cards!! I love the texture that plaid creates. I need to share however that the stamp set is STAYING. It is just the die set Plaid Builder and Bundle price that is leaving. Also retiring on this card is the Braided Linen trim (already gone) and Small Bloom Punch. See, I used it a TON. I do mean a TON!! You will need the full size…

Can you see the embossing folder in the background?? That is from the Meadow Moments embossing folder. That folder actually…

That way you have no trouble making more!! I assembled the Plaid and then carefully cut it out. The tag is…

    Perhaps Christmas Means More, especially this year!

    Perhaps Christmas Means More I do not know about you, but Perhaps Christmas Means More this year?? I miss my family!! This traditional colored gingham is a returning favorite Toile Tidings DSP.

Remember that we used the Christmas Means More stamp set just a couple days ago, here. Even the Layering Circle dies. Did you know that there are 16 dies included in the set??? Eight circles and Eight scallop circles. Can you say Staple??…

    Here is a retiring stamp feature… Beautiful Day. Want to take a peak back at the post… Link. This “watercolor” technique and Birthday cards were so fun to create. Thank you again Korine for letting me use your stamp set!! Retiring… Love What you Do! Ohh, I am sniffling just a bit over this one.
