Today my project is a “Thank You” card featuring Sizzix Susan’s Garden Pansies and Violets. I love how beautiful these flowers turn out, and how easy they are to make. With pansies and violets as the focal point of your card, you don’t really need much more.
I started the project by selecting medium purple, vibrant yellow and green cardstock for my pansies, along with a darker purple and green cardstock for my violets. I followed the instructions on the Sizzix website and used my Sizzix Big Shot to cut the pieces needed to make several pansies and violets. Note that especially the first time

Spellbinders has a whole set of Die D-Lites ‘Create’ flower dies, the Gerber Daisy is just one of them so be sure to check out the rest and see which ones you’d like to add to your flower die collection. In the video below I show you step-by-step how I created the pink flower on the right above and then a complete walk through as we make the card on the left. You can see how just a change of color, from Marigold to Pink, can totally change the look of the daisy.

Today my cards feature the Beautiful Juliet stamp set and Sweet Juliet die set by Heartfelt Creations. I love the stamp, the beautiful stem and greens with the saying “you are so beautiful to me” along the side. The die set is also wonderful, and you can create so many different kinds of flowers with it. I think that these were released around Valentines’ Day, but they are definitely appropriate for use throughout the entire year. The first card below features both the stamp and the die sets; the second card features only the stamp set.

Today I want to show you a gift that I made using Sizzix Susan’s Garden Narcissus/Paperwhites dies. Paperwhites are beautiful flowers that can bloom indoors in the worst of winters. They add such beauty and fragrance, as well as a reminder that spring is just around the corner. This year I received a Thanksgiving gift of some paper white bulbs. It was such fun to watch them grow – very quickly they were more than three feet tall. The blooms were lovely and fragrant. I’ve included pictures below of the real flowers, as well as my interpretation.

Today I want to share a breast cancer awareness card featuring the Glorious Gerbera dies by Docrafts dies. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and I want to honor the courageous women and men (and their families) who have battled this disease.
Docrafts dies are newer to the US market, so you may not be as familiar with them (they are sometimes also called Xcut dies). They are available in many of the common shapes and sizes (circles, rectangles, squares, flowers, etc.), and there are two beautiful doily dies. Docrafts also makes some fun “build-a-scene” die sets such as “Haberdashery” and “Garden Party”.

Confession: I love to dress up my little girl! It’s too much fun! However, the little stinker usually won’t have any of that, but I keep attempting. I love creating Hair-bows with Sizzix Bigz flowers because I let the wipper-snapper help me in it’s creation and she ends up LOVING it and wearing it all day long. It was like an answer to a mother’s dress-up plea. Alright, so maybe I’m a little pathetic! That being said, I know that there are others out there longing for their daughter to keep their hair in because I’ve TALKED TO SOME OF

These Sizzix Fringe and Frolic Flowers are the cutest applique dies I have ever used! Seriously, so easy to use and so much fun! I bought these so I could make some really fast and cute bows for my daughter. I finally got my fabric out and went to work. I made 3 bows in about 40 minutes (with interruptions from kids). Really, all you need for this project is your die cutting machine (I use the cuttlebug), fabric, scissors, needle and thread, and some hot glue. I’m also going to make a little bouquet for my daughter to play with, so

I must really be in the mood for spring because all I can think about is Floral Doilies and Flowers. So I had to make a page layout and another card using some very fun products from our website. I started off finding some beautiful paper from Bo Bunny from their Love Letters Collection pack. And then of course and as always, I wanted to use the Sizzix Big Shot machine and a Sizzix Die called Flower Layers w/ Heart Petals. QuicKutz has a great die that I used as well called Nesting Floral Doilies. And then I had to use some
