Love Blossoms Collection

This collection is amazing and I can’t wait for mine to arrive. Watercolor is one of my favorite ways to color and express myself . This stamp set is designed to make it look like you water-colored these beautiful flowers.

The sentiments are wonderful for either cards or scrapbooking. Here are the one set of the card samples the workshop is designed to create. Note that they embossed both sides of the card with the dots on the folder. You are able to use this folder multiple ways to get different impressions.

Here is the full workshop, including the Swiss Dot embossing folder. The bundle is 20% off – $55.95 USD vs $70+USD!! It’s a great deal. I love these tiny little ink pads included so you don’t have to have stamp pads!

Here is the kit without the folder where you can still save 20% – $47.95 USD vs $60.72!

Look at how beautiful these flowers look! It truly looks as if they are water-colored and all you had do was stamp.

In case you really fall in love with the cards, you can buy more of the basic kit, without the stamps, ink pads, and the folder, so you can make more.

Here’s the last design. Look at how beautiful the cards are with the Swiss Dots folder and just stamping the flowers. So simple yet so elegant!

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet to check out this amazing Love Blossom Collection.

Fabulous February!

Snow Weekend

Mid-day Snow.

What an amazing snow weekend! We’ve received close to 9.5″ in over 24 hours! The kids had a day off from school on Monday. I thought it would be fun to share some of the pictures from our day.

Snowy Trees.

Normally, our large snow fall happens in February, around President’ s Day weekend. SG was delighted to have all of our snow.

Snow Girls

The pups, Huck and Finn, loved the snow as well.
