Sending Sunshine

I had a chance to play with some Hometown Summer papers by Pink Paislee and I fell in love. The colors are right up my alley. I love their 6x6 paper pads, they are perfect for cards. And I also used some punchout die tags for the cards and really loved them, too. Just love, love, love!! LOL!!



I used a journaling diecut for the front of the card and just added on from there. Had to sneak in some baker's twine, you know...


Here's another one using the green papers in the paper pad. Love the green and orange together!


More twine, a tied bow, some Thickers...


 Isn't that orange soda diecut cute????


I think this is the first time I used big journaling cards and diecuts for a card and I like how they add so much, without too much effort. Gotta love that.

I want to know, do you enjoy making cards? Ever used diecuts or journaling cards on your cards? Or do you prefer to use them for layouts?

Thanks for stopping by today!

Fun cards, love that red ribbon on the first one:) I typically use the bigger die cuts on LO's...stamping always overtakes my card making:)
