Seaside Shore

Last weekend we did a short quick trip to the beach... and I guess I am still inspired by that... and not only that... I also played along with the lovely folks over at the "Global Design Project" where the theme is to CASE the Designer. Please hop on over to the blog to see all the samples

I liked the layout and went with that for my sample:

Pet Sympathy Card

Today's card is one of those that I don't like to make.. a sympathy card. And in this case it was for a pet sitting client that recently lost her little dog... so sad!



The heart shape with the paw cut out was created with my Silhouette Cameo... I sponged the shape and the doily in Elegant Eggplant

Thailand Achievers Blog Hop - Celebrating Onstage



Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop for April 2017. This month our theme is the "Onstage April 2017". Onstage is an event held for Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators only. We get to see, feel and play with the brand new products that are coming up. This event was based on the brand new Annual Catalogue and we are so excited about it. We want to show you some of the highlights of this event and hope that you can join us and other Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators in the future. Just another reason to join as a Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator, even if you aren't interested in selling.

AND to show you just how awesome Stampin' Up!® is as a company... even if you are not able to go to the event, like me, they make a broadcast available to us shortly after the event. So I am able to watch important announcements, new product presentations and so on in the comfort of my home and don't feel left out


If you are reading my blog in an email, please be sure to click over to my blog to see the sample and the hop list underneath...



Here is my contribution for today's blog hop:



I was able to pre-order the "Eastern Palace" Bundle and thought I'd show a sample that is not really what you'd expect from the name of the bundle... 

I made a sunflower laser cut card...

Here is a side view to show how the petals pop up:



And here you can see the detailed stamp I used in-between the petals.. Greeting and circle stamp is part of the bundle as well!


This bundle will have lots and lots of variations


But back to our hop.... You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Claudia Perry or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Claudia Perry.

Happy Easter

Some of you may have missed my posts for the last 10 days or so... Well, I had some catching up to do for filing taxes last week... but now I am back and my goal is to stay ahead of the game.

I did manage to make some Easter Treats ... with the help of my Paper Pumpkin and thought I'd share the pictures today with you all.

The first one is done just like the kit suggested:




The 2nd one was meant to be just a little card... but I needed more treats so I made them into "bag toppers":


Happy Easter to all of you!
