Here’s a 5 minute home decorating project.  The picture frame was on clearance at Target.  I used the Summer Smooches designer paper (only available 1 more week and then again in June), some punches and a sentiment from My Digital Studio (fantabulous you).  Stay tuned for that retired accessory list – late tonight or early tomorrow.

Don’t forget to pick up the Mouthwatering stamp set to use in your summer crafting  from the Occasions mini before the end of the month.  I’m not sure if the Sweet Shop designer paper or the scented embossing powders  will be carried over either.  I used both cherry and melon on this card.  Yum.  Demo meeting tomorrow […]

Here’s another card with “Send me Soaring”.  This fun set is only available until the end of April.  If you noticed, I used the other part of the Lucky Limeade cardstock from yesterday’s card after using the Adorning Accents edgelits.  The kites are pieced from the Summer Smooches designer paper.
