So my mind needed a bit of thinking time to come up with something appropriate using the wonderful Stampin’ Up! products I have. So, this is the first card.

I made a Gift Bag with a Turn Over Cuff out of this gorgeous Designer Series Paper – Timeless Elegance.

But did you know that the Simple Stems stamp set in the 2014 Occasions catalog also coordinates with the Secret Garden Framelits?  Yeah!  Two stamp sets with one set of sweet floral and leaf image framelits.

Hello, it seems an age since I posted on my blog. Life has just been so busy. How on earth I ever fitted in a full time job, I’ll never know. Today I’m posting some projects I’ve shared as part of the current challenge (SC90/13) at Sunny Challenges & Creations. The challenge this fortnight is to make a project using framelits.
