Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a relaxing and fun weekend ... maybe even finding a little time to scrap. I thought we would share another full day of cards with you today, as our card designers were super busy creating so many little works of art the past month.
“I Love You” card, by Gretchen McElveen.
This card is a little combination of the Kiss Me, Sand & Surf, and Engaged at Last lines. These lines really do go well together. You might not think it, but trust me! J I did a little fussy cutting of the Paradise patterned paper in the Sand & Surf line to get all the small flowers on this card. And all the “I love you” strips came from the Kiss Me Borders & Cute Cuts sheet.

“Spend Your Life…” card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I am digging 5”x 5” cards lately! I didn’t do this on purpose but this card has a very Spring-y feel to it to me. Everything here is from the Engaged at Last line! I pulled out my butterfly punch to add a few butterflies and put the finishing touches on this card.

“Cheer Up” card, by Gretchen McElveen.
This card is almost entirely using the Kiss Me collection with some Sophisticates chipboard and Miniature Sentiment stickers thrown in for good measure! I wanted a soft, cheery card to send to a friend and all the pink in the Kiss Me line was perfect. And the chipboard sun helped add just enough variety too! Thanks for looking!

“Happy Birthday” card, by Carina Lindholm.
When I sat down to make this card I was in the mood for making a colourful and festive card. So I dug out the “Birthday girl” collection. I really love the colors and cute patterns in this collection. I knew right away that I wanted to use these big colourful chipboard letters on my card. So I made them my focal point and then added tape, buttons and flags to decorate my card.

“I Love You” card, by Carina Lindholm.
I must admit, I LOVE the chevron pattern. I hope this is a trend that never goes away. On this card I used the yellow chevron paper that you can find in the “birthday girl” collection. I also used some brown designers tape, chipboard borders and a chipboard heart to complete this card.

“Together 4 Ever” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
Along with all of the fun elements included in the Kiss Me collection, I find that many of the Sophisticates embellishments and papers are great additions to the Kiss Me collection! For my card, I added a chipboard heart form the Sophisticates line, as well as a Star button and Dahlia Crochet Heart.

“Thanks For Everything” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
Oh how I love the Ciao Chip Trees! I think they're perfect for all year round, not just in the Fall! For my card, I combined the chipboard tree (along with a chipboard heart from the Ciao Chip Stars & Hearts) with lots of items from the Sophisticates collection. For embellishment, I added a Crochet Flower, and two buttons.
