GEOMETRIC FLAKES!!!


Hi friends!  I am back today sharing some more card using the goodies from Catherine's new winter release.  Have you picked up any of the goodies?  The creative team shared creations on an Instagram Hop yesterday and more of the team will be sharing on a video hop today.

Today's cards use goodies from the Snowy Day Bundle.


I am in love with the Geometric Flakes Cover Plate Die.  I decided to show a portion of the die to keep my card clean and simple.  I die cut the Flakes from white card stock.  I then trimmed both silver and blue glitter paper and adhered the strips onto a piece of card stock.  I glued the Flakes on top of the glittered card stock.

I trimmed the front of my card using one of the dies from the Postage Stamp dies to create my window.  I added the white heat embossed tag and some rhinestones in the center of each flake to finish off this card.


For this card I decided to trim down the die cut piece and add some gold glitter card stock behind.  This is a quick, simple card to put together and you could easily make this into a birthday or thank you card by changing out the sentiment.  The sentiment I used is from the Holiday Mittens stamp set.  I added some black and white twine to finish off my card.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

SNOWY DAY, SMITTEN, & CAKE & CONFETTI BUNDLES AVAILABLE NOW!!!!


Hi everyone!  You can now purchase the amazing bundles from Catherine Pooler Designs!  There are 3 to choose from  SMITTEN, SNOWY DAY OR CAKE & CONFETTI! 

 All the products in each bundle coordinate together to help you create many fun cards.  I had a blast creating with these bundles and I can't wait to see what you all create.

We are having an Instagram Hop today to celebrate the fun release.  Here is my card.


I used the gorgeous Delicate Snowflake die from the Snowy Day Bundle to create another Christmas card.  I used the die to emboss on the Sand Dunes card stock and then die cut it from white card stock a few times and glued them together to create some dimension.

I added some small pearls to each of the "curls" and white heat embossed my sentiment on some red card stock.  I added some red & white twine to finish off my card.

Catherine is also releasing some new products in the shop today.  One is an amazing Envelope liner die and Envelopes!  WOOHOO!!!  

She is also releasing some Cut and Stick Adhesive Paper that you can use on this delicate die cut to create a sticker so you don't have to add liquid glue to the thin lines.  Gotta get me some of that!!  ;)

Hope you join us for the Instagram Hop and come back here for more inspiration from me using some of these products.  The Blog Hop will be Friday so stop back by then.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Flourish Christmas Cards


Hi friends!  I hope everyone in the US had a wonderful Thanksgiving with their families.  I sure did.  I'm back today sharing a couple more Christmas cards using the gorgeous Flourishes Background stamp by Catherine Pooler.  


For my cards, I white heat embossed the background onto Sand Dunes card stock.  I then added the frame die cut in white and the bow and sentiment with red card stock.  These cards came together pretty quickly.

Here is one with a circle frame.


And a close-up.

Merry & Bright


Hi everyone!  I'm popping in with a card inspired by the graphic over at Time Out Challenges.


I love these colors for Christmas cards and combined a few different stamp companies on this card.  I have Catherine Pooler Designs, Papertrey Ink and Lil' Inker Designs.  The background stamp is from Catherine, the bow is from Papertrey Ink and the sentiment is from Lil' Inker Designs.

I was able to create 2 cards using the embossed background piece.  Here is my second card.

Joy to the World


Hi everyone!  I have another Christmas card to share with you all using some of the goodies from the All the Trimmings Release.  This card uses the Nested Labels Dies, the gorgeous Flourishes Background Stamp, the Seasonal Sentiments & Borders stamp set.

I started my card by smooshing the Mardi Gras ink pad onto my craft sheet, spritzed with water and then smooshed my water color card stock into it. I dried it with my heat tool, then smooshed again into the color and dried again until I was happy with the colors and textures.  Love this fun technique because you get a different look every single time!

I die cut the piece using one of the Nested Labels Dies and then did some stamping and silver heat embossing using one of the borders.


I stamped and heat embossed the Flourishes Background stamp onto my card base using Wanderlust embossing powder.  I love the sparkle this adds to the card base.  I finished off my card with some black and white twine.



Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

CATHERINE POOLER MINI INK AND CANVO BULLET JOURNAL RELEASE


Hi everyone!  Have you heard Catherine released new MINI ink pads and her new amazing product called Canvo Bullet Journal?!!!!  

Let's start with the MINI Inks!  We all love CP inks and now there are these adorable mini ink pads that are the same exact formulation and foam pad as her regular size ink pad.  There are 14 MINI Inks released now...And the sets come in a cute little box so they are already organized for you.  Click HERE to check out the CP Minis!



The new product called the Canvo Bullet Journal is also releasing.  Catherine was introduced to bullet journaling and bought a bullet journal from a local craft store and started playing with it and noticed there were some flaws that she immediately went to work fixing.  One huge problem was when she stamped on the pages, it bled through to the next page.  With the Canvo, that doesn't happen because the paper is nice and thick.

  • Pages measure 7 x 9″
  • Dot grid layout
  • 150 numbered pages
  • Heavy weight pages
Catherine has also released some cute stamp sets to use with the Canvo.  Look at this cute spread she created using some of the images from the stamp sets.


I was actually lucky enough to spend the weekend in Raleigh with my good friend and Creative Team member Laurel Beard!  We were there when the first product launch was revealed!!  It was such a fun time!


I do have to admit that I wasn't sure I was going to jump on the whole bullet journal band wagon, until I watched all of Catherine's videos on her You Tube channel showing how she uses the journal.  I plan on using my journal as a birthday tracker/address book and I will be able to decorate it and personalize it how I want.  I'm SO excited!  

SSSSHHHHH!!!!  I also plan to get my girls each one for Christmas.  They love bullet journals and I know they are going to use it in a completely different way than I use it.  I can't wait to share more.
