✤✤ Paper Made Bakery: April Release Day & Blog Hop ✤✤

Please click HERE for my Merry Monday card...I used non-traditional papers for a holiday card!
Click HERE for my Timeless Twine post.


Happy Monday!

Paper Made Bakery will start off your week in a great way!

April Release Day & Blog Hop!

Vintage Daydream



You should have arrived here from Angi's,  Cokie Pop Paper blog!  If not, you'll want to start at the Paper Made Bakery blog so that you don't miss out on any of the fun!

I have two projects to share today....the first one is my 'stampy' one:


I put together a note card set using my kraft cardstock that I always have on hand.  I used the Fresh Squeezed Stamps set, String Me Along.  

Here are just a couple of the fun images in the set:


My camera was having a heck of a time capturing the pink high top:



All 4 of the cards are 3 inches wide by 4 inches tall...I've been enjoying making non-standard sized cards.


I like to say the they are "Kate Spade" type cards...very clean & crisp.


...perfect for any type of occasion.


Here's my other project for today's hop...it's my scrappy one:



There is so much goodness in this month's kit.  I absolutely ADORE the Maggie Holmes line....seriously, check out that gorgeous paper.  

♡♡Hello Wood Veneer♡♡

For those of you that have been following me, you know how much I love Wood Veneer embellies.  Actually, I tend to hoard them but how could I hoard that magnificent bird cage and not team it up with the fun sentiment?  

Yes, the kit comes with sequins and a doily, which I carefully trimmed so that I can use the other smidge on another project.

I'm the end of the hop!  Hope you had fun!!!

Don't forget about the Rafflecopter!
