Catered Crop–So Shapely

Pull out those die cuts and punches and join in the latest Catered Crop recipe swap – So Shapely.    How fun! 


For my card, I broke out my hexagon dies again.  I love these dies but sometime struggle with how best to use them.    So once again, I tried to simplify things and keep them clean.  Well, clean for me at least.

Linda has curated another fabulous board on Pinterest to give our creativity a jump start.  Click in the photo to be taken to her board, To Die For – Die Cuts and Punches.


As usual, while working on my project, I had a song stuck in my head.    Sooooo, I thought I would share it with you.   Check out the Pipettes singing “Pull Shapes”.

Beautifull and inspiring card! The colors are my favorites, love all the oranges. It is very clean - But you can see how much work was done and how much attention to details, like the stitching around and the layred butterfly!

I also love the photo setting, with all the buttons around (: Orange is my favorite color..

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Catered Crop–Think Green Recipe Swap
