    Hope Box Paper Pumpkin Alternatives.

    Hope Box Paper Pumpkin Here is our first look at the Hope Box Paper Pumpkin Alternatives. Today there is three and I am excited there are three more tomorrow. This one uses the flagged end strips, but I wanted to extend their life. So I cut them in half. That way I could get more color AND add to another card later. I will admit that this group of sentiments are my favorite. I wanted to use them EVERY TIME!! Where there is hope, there is faith, where there is faith, miracles happen. It rings true for several things. Cancer survivors, parents of special needs, and especially those that have…

    20 years and I will ALWAYS remember this day.

    20 Years and I will.. Yes, I will always remember where I was and how horrifying it all was. My flag has been up ever since. I feel that is the least I can do to show support for not only first responders, the military, their families and those that made the ULTIMATE sacrifice for me! September 11, 2001 will never be forgotten by me or those that I love. I will talk of it for the rest of my life. That is how I can honor all 2,977 lives. Hugs and Have a Great Day getting Crafty!

For the first Wednesday in August we made the above. The Painted Christmas Suite ( bundle 1, bundle 2 and DSP) does not disappoint. I will say that the die cuts really are amazing. These two layers and add a few pine cones and boom. No need for DSP on this one. However, the Sale-a-Bration Be Dazzling specialty paper is awesome. Especially once you figure out that you need to cut it from the top. Yes,…

However if you want to purchase separately it is only $7. Inside you will find 5 sheets of foil pretties and a sheet of sequins with glue dots already.

Why because I know that not everyone has all the DSP. This was an attempt to maybe give a team member just a bit of this DSP to share if needed. This was fun way to share all the pretty patterns in the Simply Elegant DSP pack. None of the cards were the same. Well with the exception of the foil and twine.
