Quick and Easy Cards!

If you are into scrapbooking, you know by using the Memories & More Card Packs and Pocket Pages on page 190-191 in the Annual Catalog, these products will save you lots of time when you are ready to work on your photos...and it's so easy!

M-M Color Theory-Marina Mist

M-M Color Theory-Berry Burst

All three of these cards were easy to make.  I pulled out three different sheets from the Color Theory Card Pack, added some cardstock and stamped on the cards using the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set along with some cutting using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.

By layering some cardstock and adding some embellishments, a quick and easy card was created.  The Memories & More Card Packs are not just for scrapbooking anymore!

Products Used:

Succulent Garden Pot!

Maybe you've seen the beautiful garden pots that people are making using the Oh So Succulent Bundle on page 21 of the Occasions Catalog.  If you haven't seen them, here is one I want to share with you.

Succulent Flower Pot 4-17

For this pot, I didn't actually use the Oh So Succulent Bundle...I used the Vertical Succulent Garden Project Kit (143635).  This Project Kit is still available on the Retired List. 

You can make pots decorated with the Oh So Succulent Bundle or the Vertical Succulent Garden Project Kit...both work; however, the Vertical Succulent Garden Project Kit is only $23.00.  The Bundle is $48.50.  No matter with one you choose, they both make a cute garden pots like this one.

Believe it or not, they are not hard to make.  I picked up a clay pot at one of our local craft stores...Joann's Michael's both carry them.

Vertical Garden Project Kit #143635

Happy stamping!
