Moments Together

April 8, 2017

It’s Suzanne here today with a card I fell in love with when it was completed! Susan’s Garden florals combine beautifully with A Way With Word dies.  I don’t think you can go wrong with any combination!

I really love subtlety in my designs – the danger is being too subtle!  I like the idea of important words peeking out to send a quiet message, a design that has enough interest from a distance, but draws you in to see more.

Here is how you can make this card.  Join me!

Tiger Lily Birthday Card

March 28, 2017

Dear Friends,

Shalini Pahwa here. A birthday is one of the most important and eagerly awaited days of the year for all of us. Even in this age of advanced technology with a plethora of options for communicating and sending gifts, I still feel that a bouquet of flowers, delivered with a personal message, is the best way to deliver birthday wishes. But if there is a distance between you and your loved one, a card with a bouquet of beautiful handmade paper flowers is a wonderful way to express your emotions – and it is sure to become a cherished gift.

Hi Everyone! It’s Tina here today for Susan’s Garden Club. By now you’ve seen the stunning new line from Susan Tierney-Cockburn.

Below are the steps to create the background and the rest of the card.
