I really miss travelling

I have cancelled two planned trips since Covid-19 started, which breaks my heart because I love to travel. It doesn’t matter if it’s a weekend getaway or a trip to a foreign country. I love to be able to say “have bag will travel” and am fortunate enough to be be able to do that. Since travelling isn’t really an option right now, I can only dream until things improve. Now that being said, after seeing the new Beautiful World Bundle along with the coordinating Specialty Designer Series Paper, I decided to create this framed sampler depicting travel destinations. How could I not? For now, it will remind me of better days to come.

I love the versatility of this Bundle set and all the possibilities that allow us to create. I used some older retired stamps from the recent Sale-A-Bration sale as well which made it so easy to create. Bundles are a great way to bring it all together plus you save 10% when you purchase a bundle instead of purchasing items separately.

I recently posted this card I made for a monthly card swap I participate in. It’s a great way to stay in touch with people while sharing design ideas. This card was also made using the Beautiful World Bundle.

Here is another bundle sample which makes beautiful cards. Blossoms in Bloom (#154123) is another favourite bundle of mine. With both the stamps and dies you can make gorgeous cards in any colour combination, as shown below.

With Bonus days happening through throughout July and ending August 3rd, now is a great time to purchase a bundle and earn valuable coupons. If you are unfamiliar with this promotion, for every $60 CAD you spend by Aug 3, 2020, (before shipping and tax) your will earn a $6 Bonus Days coupon code which you can use anytime between August 4-31, 2020 for additional products. This is a win-win scenario. Click here to find out more.

Life’s a Beautiful Journey

We all need to tell the people in our lives that they matter and what better way than to give or send them a card. After all, as the card says “Life’s a Beautiful Journey” and they are a part of that journey. I will be sending these out later today. I only wish I had some Very Vanilla envelopes but sadly I am out of them at the moment.

The card base is made from Early Espresso and the matting is Crumb Cake. I stamped a light image from the Very Versailles stamp set, onto a piece of Very Vanilla card stock with some scripty writing so it looks like an old document. I then embossed it, using the Old World 3D embossing folder to give it a crumbled paper look.  I lightly used a sponge dauber in crumb cake to highlight the texture and give it an aged look.  I then tore around the edges  to make it look even older, I sponged Early Espresso around the edges as well to enhance it.  I am pretty pleased with how it turned out.
