Printed Petals

I can't believe that summer is coming to an end. The kids only have 4 more days of summer holidays! Where has the summer gone!?

We've got a full week this week but I'm going to try to get back into the swing of things by posting a bit more often. I have been working in my craft room creating lots with the upcoming holiday mini products and preparing for upcoming workshops and events. So I have several things to share with you and some that will be saved for workshops only:0

The project I have for you today is one that I did at my open house in July. I love creating little 3x3 cards. They are quick and easy and great for jotting down just a little note. I am really not a fan of yellow - but I have used the new Daffodil Delight so much. I can't say that I love it - it is yellow - but it works so well with so many different colours that it is really easy to incorporate into your projects.

After the open house I always package up any leftover make & takes and set them aside. I like to try to use them to create a different project. That's how the second card I'm sharing came about. It uses all the same supplies but looks completely different, don't you think? This also uses the Sweet Treat cups that I used the other day on the pig card.

I don't know if you noticed that when I use the treat cups, I almost always have a tab sticking out. This is really one of your best options if you don't want the person to whom you've given the card to have to rip into the card in order to get the goodies out. I used this as one of the incentives for my downline for June sales. I had added some of our wonderful rhinestone and pearl jewels to the cup for them.
