Instructions: Start by creating your sign base using several layers for strength. I used several layers of Chipboard followed by a layer of brown card stock and finally panels cut from the Monkeying Around Paper Collection. The sign and Relax sentiment were found on the internet in various locations and tweaked to fit my sign.

All the images, except for the flowers, were stamped on white card stock using Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and die cut with the matching dies before coloring with Pebbles Chalks and a combination of Desert Sand and Work Lipstick distress inks which were applied with a Dove Blender Pen. The Palm Trees and Banana Leaves were distressed with Peeled Paint and Ground Expresso before brushing with Mod Podge for extra stiffness. The flowers were stamped on white card stock using Expresso Truffle and die cut with the matching die before coloring with a Dove Blender Pen and Squeezed Lemonade ink. A bit of sparkle was added with a Quickie Glue Pen and Micro Glitter Crystal.

Other Products: Spellbinders Nestabilities labels twenty-two, white and black card stock

Instructions: Cut the card base from the white paper card stock using the Nestabilities die cut. Make sure you set the die just a little bit over the edge so it cuts a card base. Fold top part of the card in half, this will create a sort of Z card.

Now from the paper collection cut 2 shape panels, 1 from the white card stock and 1 from the black card stock. Add one of the panels to the inside of the card, then cut another panel from the smaller die from white card stock and center this onto the card.

Using the Luggage and Tags Die, cut one of the sentiments from the paper collection and attach it to the upper corner of the panels.

Now, cut the black and white panels in half and adhere them so that they give the one panel from the collection a "layered" look.

Next, stamp, color and die cut the monkeys, bananas and palm tree and adhere them to the center of the card panels.

Instructions: My Tag is 4" X 8 1/2". Pick a piece of the paper collection and distress the edges then glue to the tag. I used some of the Bamboo Leaves to go around the edges of the tag before I added the paper. Stamp, cut out and color the palm tree, monkeys, the banana and the flowers. Decide where they look the best on your tag and glue them down. I cut the sentiment out of the paper and backed it with a piece of green cardstock to make a sign. I used the dimension tape to adhere it to the top of the tag. Next I cut a piece of white seam binding and sprayed it with water then I rubbed the Rhubarb Stalk ink onto my craft mat and then swirled the seam binding through. When it achieved the color I wanted, I scrunched it up and laid it aside to dry. Once dry I tied the bow and used Scor-Tape and glue to hold it down. Next I tied a piece of the colored seam binding in the hole at the top.

Instructions: I used the cardboard base that comes in the Art From the Heart Handbag as a base for my mini layout. I measured and cut the light patterned paper to fit the board. Cut a piece of the dark orange patterned paper that is 3" x 9", distress the edges. Cut a piece of the green patterned paper that is 2" x 6.5". Cut a piece of the light orange patterned paper that is 1" x 9.5" and flag both ends, and add a burlap string knot around one end of it. Find and cut out the green bordered journal block. Adhere these layers a little more to the right hand side of the layout. Add the brown mesh down the left side of the layout. Find and cut out the border strip and adhere on top of the brown mesh.

Stamp and cut out 2 sets of the larger Classic Rose, 2 sets of the small Classic Rose, 3 sets of the Classic Rose leaves, and 1 set of the Blushing Rose Stem leaves. I coloured my images using inks and daubers. Shape and assemble your leaves and flowers. Using liquid adhesive add brown Prills to the middle of each flower. Let dry. Add a couple of the flowers around the photo and a larger cluster of leaves and flowers up the left hand side of your layout.

Mat your photo in cream and brown cardstock and adhere to the layout using 3D foam tape.

Hello, it is Spring! I am looking forward to a wonderful summer. Your variety of flower dies gives me options for any occasion. Have you thought of making an Iris collection? If I had to pick a favorite from your flower collections, it would be the roses. But - if you ever made an Iris collection, I already know... that would be my ALL TIME FAVORITE. Your stamps and coordinating dies are the best!!! Oh and making cards is a quick and super relaxing way to do a little something, an "I thought of You today", for all those someone specials in my life. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!...to all of you, because of all that you do...I am inspired beyond anything - I would have ever dreamed. Here is a Great Big THANK YOU!!!
