I'm not ready...

to go back to work tomorrow. This three day weekend is something I can definitely get use to. I can tell it's been a very long time since I've had a vacation!  Only two more months! Today I hunkered down at my crafty table and got to some more creating. Squeezed in a couple of fun cards before moving onto some deadline creating.

First up I used some Blueberry Hill papers from Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker. Such a cute line! Blue and yellow are becoming a favorite color combo for me.

Supplies: Paper, sticker: Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker, Cardstock: The Paper Company, Alphabet: American Crafts, Bling: Kaisercraft, Tools: Dies and Machine: Cuttlebug (Provo Craft), Border punch: Fiskars, Other: ribbon

Those cute little, bitty, layered flowers were cut some new dies for my Cuttlebug. I originally got the 'bug because I wanted to emboss. I thought, I don't need dies since I have my Silhouette!  But I'm realizing how handy the dies indeed are. I can use up some of my scraps and die cut out these cute flowers. The die set came with two larger flowers too and another layered flower. Fun!

*Sigh*  The next card... oh the next card uses my FAVORITE collection right now and it happens to be by one of my fave manufacturers too.

Supplies: Paper: Lily Bee Design, Cardstock: The Paper Company, Bling: Kaisercraft, Sticker: SRM Press, Pen: Zig

Every time I bust out these papers I just fall in love all over again. I absolutely adore the color combination and small patterns which seems to make cards and handmade embellishments super easy to create. I've made that flower before but with different sized circle punches.  I think I have a tutorial around here somewhere. This isn't my original idea but I never bookmarked where I found the original tutorial. I'll make a new one or I'll keep digging for the one I made.

Well I got cupcakes baking and some laundry ready for folding. Hope you are having a relaxing day!
