September 2011 Blog Hop

This photo is the inspiration for Papertrey's Blog Hop this month and I had two cards in my head.

This first card (hello Friend) is my favorite of the two- I love the colors a little better and the layout just seems fresh and simple to me. This card is made with the Eyelet Lace Border Die from PTI. Love these colors, really pushed my out of my comfort zone.

This card was made with PTI Retro Background and I used a mask to make the corner look. The Hawaiian Shores border was made with the little pieces that come out of the Victorian Lace Border die.

Supplies Hello Friends all PTI unless noted: Eyelet Border Die, Butterfly Sizzlet from SU, Rhinestones, Think Big Favorites #3

Thank you card: Think Big Favorites #4, Victorian Lace Die, Retro Bkg, Lemon Tart Satin Ribbon.

Colors- Smokey Shadow, Hawaiian Shore, Lemon Tart, others SU-Blushing Bride, Rose Red, More Mustard.


  1. I love your use of the eyelet die. Great job!

  2. Your cards are gorgeous! I love the eyelet die and the butterflies together! So graphic and fun:)

  3. Nice job making the neat corners with masking! Love the way you used the eyelet die!

  4. Two fantastic takes on the photo, Susan! I love the repetition of the circles on the first one and the perfectly stamped stripes on the second one.

  5. Once again great cards! Clean, simple and VERY effective.

  6. Both cards are great. I love the eyelet one, probably because I love the die!
