Thanks // Gramercy Road

Happy Monday! It’s a busy day, but I did want to drop in and share some cards created over the weekend using the new Gramercy Road collection from Gossamer Blue. There are a lot of pretty feminine touches in the line, but I chose to skip them here and create some thank you’s that would be okay to give to a man.

One of the things that I am really loving about all of the new GB collections is how petite the patterns are for the 12″x12″ page. Sometimes full size paper is just too big for cardmaking, ya know? It’s a great size for mixing lots of patterns on the card size canvas. Hooray!

Wishing you a great day!

Oh Happy Day


Loving the pretty autumn colors in this month’s kits. This one would be great for a fall wedding.

Supplies: Gossamer Blue October Main kit


October Inspiration Hop


Hello there! The ladies from Gossamer Blue are putting together a monthly blog hop starting this month to provide a little mid-month inspiration while everyone is receiving their October kits in the mail and before we jump into all the sneak peeks and excitement of discovering what’s inside the next month’s kits (which are totally amazing, btw!). I think it’s such a great idea and love the chance to drool over even more pretty projects from the design team.

So here are 2 more cards that I saved to share with you today.

This fox die cut from the October Main Kit is the absolute cutest! And I’m pretty sure I squealed with delight to find out the mask puffy sticker from the My Mind’s Eye Frightful line (October Life Pages Themed Add-On) fit perfectly over his little face.

Add the headdress, and he is surely ready for some sort of super-exclusive Halloween ball. Ha!

Next, here’s a pretty simple card using the October Life Pages Kit. Using the lovely sentiments from the life pages cards helps every thing come together so quickly! And that patterned vellum sheet is so very lovely <3

You can check the Gossamer Blue blog for more details about the hop and below is the entire list to visit. Enjoy!

Birthday Boy Layout

Hello! I am up today on the Gossamer Blue blog with a pocket page style layout for my little guy’s 2nd birthday. Layouts are kind of scary too me – there is just too much space to fill – which is mainly why I started making cards. Unfortunately, this also means that his baby book is mostly empty.  Most of you are probably more familiar with this style of scrapbooking, but as a new-to-me project, I just jumped right in and love the ease of it. More pages like this to come, I’m sure!
