Sweet Wishes | Pigment Craft Company


I'm loving the new Pigment Craft Company's Jumbo Berry set:

I adore all things fruit themed and couldn't resist these!

The sentiment is from the Berry Sentiment die set.  I made a tag with strips of cardstock.

The color palette was inspired by Color Throwdown:

Hello Sunshine | Essentials by Ellen


I was able to squeeze in one more card using the new Ellen Hutson LLC - Essentials by Ellen.  Today I'm featuring Good Day and the Push Me Pull You Die set:

Julie Ebersole's cards always inspired me.  I struggle with interactive cards so it helped that I followed her YouTube.  I originally had the bicyclist on the upper part of the card but for some reason changed it up.  I'm guessing I got caught up in Julie's YouTube instructions and ended up mostly copying her design.  I have some other ideas now that I gave it a go.

This screams summer doesn't it?  Today it is grey and drizzling, sigh.

That's it for me, I hope that you've checked out the New Release over at Ellen Hutson's.

Have a little Fun | Essentials by Ellen


This weekend I'll be playing with the Ellen Hutson - Essentials by Ellen June Release!  Did you see my post from yesterday?  There's a Instagram Hop that starts on the Ellen Hutson LLC IG.  Hop along and leave comments along the way for a chance to win!  For convenience, you can go to the Ellen Hutson blog for direct links to all the participating designer IG projects!

Today I'm featuring:

And Many More
Organic Elements
Zipper Pull Die Set

I'm a huge fan of Gift and receiving!  The Zipper Pull Die set is a fun interactive way to gift them!  There is a YouTube over on the EH Channel that shows how they work.  One of Julie's project shows a Gift Card holder.  Mine is similar but I've mounted it to an A2 Card Base and it has been adhered to a folded note card so that I can write a greeting inside.

It's really 2 pieces of cardstock sandwiched together with a card in the middle.  The white cardstock I used is 80 lb for ease of tearing. The adhesive strips go all the way around, not touching the gift card or the zipper.

The pull away action reminds me of W2's.  I haven't received a paper paycheck in years, that is all auto deposited.  I do receive paper W2's have to tear them apart to get to the form.

The sandwiched gift card panels are adhered to the Concord & 9th Stardust panel with adhesive below the zipper pull so that the recipient can tear away the top portion.

You could probably pull away everything at the same time but my photos show it one section at a time:

....YES, to coffee!  It's such a fun way to send happy mail!
