The Adventure Begins!

Hi everyone,

I'm stopping by to share some cards I made yesterday using the Kelly Purkey The Adventure Begins die that is exclusive to Simon Says Stamp. 

*Kelly Purkey Wafer Thin Die THE ADVENTURE BEGINS SMNS-017

This die is the perfect size for Project Life albums (3x4) and is also a great size to use on cards. When I was reading the sentiment on this die I realized that there are so many aspects of life that can be considered an 'adventure'... travel, graduation, a move, a new baby, marriage, retirement. Life is full of adventure!

Here are 3 cards I made for 3 different occasions using this versatile die:

wedding or engagement



There you go! Other then the 6 occasions I mentioned above, can you think of any other uses for this die? I'd love to hear your thoughts!


Thanks for stopping by!

You Are Sweet!

Hi everyone,

Happy Saturday! I'm not sure what the weather is like in your neck of the woods but we're dealing with cold weather and blowing snow. It's a perfect day to stay inside and make a card.... so that's what I did. :)

Today's card was created using some fun Avery Elle goodies along with some scraps of patterned paper.

I used one of the dies from the Avery Elle Chevron Bits Die set and die cut various scraps of patterned paper, using them to create my background. I then used one of the dies from the Rounded Diamonds Die set as the basis for my sentiment which is stamped from the Hello stamp set.


Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
