Just In Time for Holiday Crafting - new release from Karen Burniston

 Hello Friends,

Today is the "Sneak Peek" for the new Karen Burniston release of 10 die sets.

The Website is now open for pre-ordering the new dies.  Do check with your local stores, though, as their orders will ship first.  You may get the dies faster through a local store and we definitely want to support our retail partners.  Here's a preview video for the 10 new dies. 

Here is my card for today-

Be sure to stop by the Karen Burniston Pop Peeps on Face Book to see what the entire team made using the new dies.

To see some tips on how the cut out the Pattern Plates click here.

You can check out all the dies I used below, both new and old, by clicking on the product photo for all the information.

I will see you on the 26th for a Blog Hop and three more cards using the new release.

Have A Magical Christmas

 Hello Friends,

Hope to see you there,

Happy Halloween

 Hello Friends,

I have a fun card to share today.  I love to watch Sam Calcott of Mixed Up Crafts on YouTube because she always has fun projects and now she has a new line of products that are fun to work with.  This card uses her new dies "Made to Surprise".  I used some stickers from Carta Bella that I found at my local craft store.

Have a spooky Halloween,

Season's Greetings

 Hello friends,

I know we haven't even had Halloween yet but I have been thinking about Christmas cards.  There is no better way to start my cards than by using some of the beautiful new stamps from Elizabeth Craft Designs designed by Sure Smith.  The script is so lovely and elegant.  These great stamps have just been released and they are wonderful.  You can check them all out by clicking here.  I already had this poinsettia set in my collection from an earlier release.  You can check out all the products I used by clicking on the links below the photo.

Have a creative day,

 Welcome back friends, today is the October Designer Challenge and this month we are taking our inspiration from a fellow team member.  I am casing the great work of Fran Sabad with her great accordion card this past spring.  I did my inspiration card using Fall colors in place of spring.

Here is Fran's card

I've listed all the products I used below so you can simply click on the photo for more information.

Have a great and creative week,

 Hello friends, 

This is the first Friday of the month and that means a new challenge at A Vintage Journey.  This month it is all about Numbers.  I made a card for a friend that is blank on the inside so I can write a personal note and on the front I have used the BINGO embossing folder for the numbers and the theme of being lucky as winning in a Bingo game.

Have a fabulous weekend and don't forget to stop by the Vintage Journey Blog here to see what everyone else made.

Howdy - I Miss You

 Hello friends, 

Today I have a card that I made some time ago.  While I was sick in July I was unable to see my 93 year old Mom so I made some cards for her.  This is one of them.  I'm so happy that I can now see my Mom when I want and that she has stayed healthy. 

This is a slimline card which is all the rage right now.  I like the slimline because it gives me lots of extra real estate from top to bottom.  This way I was able to use 2 of the pop ups from the Flip Frame Pop Up from Karen Burniston.  Double your pleasurer, double your fun.
All of the products I used are linked below.

Have a great week,
