 The first three cards today use the same basic layout. I just used different stamp sets, framelits, punches, embossing folders, layers to change them up a bit. Thanks a Ton card is made using a past Sale-a-Bration stamp set called Patterned Occasions, retired Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper, Vine Street embossing folder (also a retired Sale-a-Bration item), retired Midnight Muse 3/8" stitched satin ribbon and Chalk Talk Framelits (129983).

More Comfort Cafe DSP with Summer Starfruit 3/8" stitched satin ribbon (retired). But in this card I used the Apothecary Accents framelits (127003) as the layer behind my expression and embossed both that layer and the Soft Suede card stock layer with the Fancy Fan embossing folder (127751). The expression comes from the Lots of Thanks stamp set (129690 c, 129687 w). The card below is essentially the same except I used the Curly Label (119851) and Petite Curly Label (129405) punches for the expression layer and used the Fancy Fan embossing folder but flipped the card stock to the opposite side. The expression comes from the Pretty Petites stamp set (another retired Sale-a-Bration set). 

 I was about to throw the rest of my scraps away when I realized a few pieces were big enough to use with the Petite Curly Label punch. I'm telling you it's not easy for me to throw these scraps away!
So, I layered the punched DSP on pieces of card stock punched with the Postage Label punch (122344). The little flower was punched with the Boho Blossoms punch (119858). The flower center is from the Neutrals Candy Dots (130934) If you look closely you will see I got out my Simply Scored tools (122334) and used the Borders Plate (126192) to add some embossed designs below the punched squares. The expression is from the retired Simply Sketched hostess set.


  1. Cute designs. I can't throw out those little scraps either :-)

  2. Me either! What a great use of the scraps. Will have to save this layout too...
