A Simple Thank You with Succulent Garden


It's funny how often I initially don't warm up to a product at first and end up loving it in the end. Such is the case with the whole Succulent Garden Suite in the Occasions Catalogue. I've never really liked succulent plants that much, where my husband loves them, so when I saw them in the catty, I was like, "Meh." But then I played around with them for a while to create some decor for my Catalogue launch and was amazed at the realistic look you could get with the framelits when you make the little plants and put them in flower pots.

But today I want to show you how beautiful the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper is. I made some simple thank you cards for my customers with some of the patterns from the series and I think they really highlight how gorgeous that paper is. Take a close look and try not to drool on your tablet!


Mint Macaron is paired with the sentiment from One Big Meaning in Old Olive here.


Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Old Olive here with the sentiment in Old Olive again.


I just love this sweet Sweet Sugarplum gingham print with the little white knot using the Whisper White 1/8" Grosgrain from the Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack.


This weekend, I was in Okanagan Falls for a small crafting retreat with my stamping group down there!


We had a lot of fun! Good food, good company, great talk and lots of crafting fun took place.











I usually host these, but this year was a little different, because one of my group has become a brand new demonstrator and wanted to help me host the retreat! Actually she did most of the organizing of the retreat herself! I designed three of the projects and she designed three of them.
I wanted to show you the three she designed because I did those projects along with the rest of the group and thoroughly enjoyed making these great cards! Make sure you leave a little love for Dianne Gough in the comments today and tell her what a great job she did with her designs!





Some of the other projects I made have to be kept under wraps for a bit, but I will share when I'm able. I will let you know that I did this project with the others as one of my three and I think I created a monster!


Let's just say that there were a lot (A LOT) of shadow box frames created this weekend with all sorts of things in the middle!! Anyway, it's a wrap until next year, and a shout out to Dianne, my new downline, who took on that big an event so soon in her Stampin' Up! career! Kudos!
