Black, Pink, and Green

I have a few cards that I would like to share with you. I made these cards with K&Company (Amy Butler Lotus) paper that I purchased from Michaels for only $2.99. I LOVE great deals since I am very frugal, and this definitely was one. This paper is double sided, so I was able to use only one sheet plus a piece of pink cardstock I found in my scrap pile.

This evening I bought Kate's ABCs from Joanns while it was on sale and I was able to use my teacher discount to get another 15% off. I am looking forward to making some projects using this cartridge since I have seen  so many cute ones. I wish they would have had Camping Critters because I would have purchased that one too. I guess it will have to stay on my Wish List for now. What's on your wish list?

Take Care,


  1. Love these cards! I love the embossing on the first card, the design of the second card with all the matting and the punching on the third card.

  2. 1.Love a good sale 2. Would love to come shopping with you 3. Love K&Company wonderful set of cards love the first one the embossing, the papers along with the flowers are a perfect combination

  3. The color combo on these cards is so fabulous, Georgiana! And your designs are so awesome! I love that paper - what a great deal! I went to Joann today, too hoping to get a new cart but mine was sold out of all but ones I had or didn't want :( I was really hoping to get at least one. I have so many on my wish list right now, but probably Elegant Edges is at the top :)


  4. Wow Mom, these cards are wonderful! I absolutely love the embossing and the flowers. I may have to use some of that beautiful paper you got for such a bargain!

  6. Very cute!Michael's honors Joann's sale prices if you take the ad. Michael's has Campong Critters that how I got mine the last time they were on sale!

  7. So pretty! Great deal!


  8. Very pretty cards and you had a steal with those deals! Awesome! :)Amy

  9. Oh Georgiana, these cards are GORGEOUS!!! I love the colors you used!! I might have to make a trip to Michaels this weekend to see if they have anything good! Was the paper pack on clearance?

    I think the next cart on my wish list is Everyday Paper Dolls. I LOVE the way they look with Peachy Keen faces!!!

  10. They are all wonderful, don't get me wrong, but the design of the second one is fantastic!!!

  11. Love your cards, G; just gorgeous! Glad you got a cart from Joanns. Mine doesn't have Campin Critters either or I think I would have bought it, but good tip from Adrian about Michael's. After I saw those adorable cards you made for the Christmas in July hop, I just had to get the 3 Birds on Parade cartridge. I found it at Check 'em out; they had low prices on certain carts.--Pat n.
