Monday Montage Week #174

Hello! Thank you for hopping with us today! I am a little behind on posting about an important event in our family! My daughter graduated from high school this year! And this was a very unique year! Graduation was very different, but my hat is off to the people in charge of planning and carrying out the many graduations ceremonies that took place. My daughter's high school graduation committee out did themselves! They were creative and made graduation memorable.

I wanted to make a card for my daughter that symbolizes all of the hope for a bright future despite the pandemic, the virus and all of the craziness in the world right now. The Beautiful World Bundle was perfect for this!

This amazing bundle makes wonderful masculine cards, but it can also be soft and feminine. Here is a close-up! First, I water colored the globe using Water Color Paper and a Water Painter. Next I embossed some Thick Whisper White Cardstock with the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. Then I added ink to my embossed background with the a Water Painter to give the card a soft pastel look. I finished off the card by coloring the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon with Stampin' Blends in the same colors! The Blends add perfect color to the ribbon! You can color it to match any project!!

Paper Pumpkin-palooza


I hope you are all doing well and that life is somewhat normal for you! I think right now the saying is the "new normal" but I am not sure exactly what that is yet! But one thing I am sure of... I am so super excited for this month's Paper Pumpkin! I mean, come on! It's all about Halloween and Fall! I love making cards and decorations for this fun season. And the coolest part about this kit is how versatile it will be! Here are the details from Stampin' Up!:

As the autumn season approaches, prepare to celebrate with the September Paper Pumpkin Kit! There’s so much to love about fall—some love the haunts of Halloween, many love the time to give thanks, and others love the changing colors and cooler temperatures. Whatever you love most about fall, September’s kit has everything you need to celebrate the season your way! Between a multi-occasion stamp set and enough supplies to design 20 cracker box treat packages, you can create custom fall crafts to celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving, pumpkins, and leaves. Whether you make them all the same or mix ‘n’ match your crafts, there’s something for everyone in this kit!  
  • This kit contains enough supplies to create 20 cracker box treat packages.
  • Each cracker box treat package can be customized to celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving, the autumn season, or all three!
  • Coordinating Colors: Bumblebee, Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Cinnamon Cider, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, white
There are so many ways you can use this kit!! So, versatile, right? And while I do love treat packaging this time of year, I am thinking the sky is the limit on this kit! Maybe a banner? Definitely some adorable cards!
So, since we still aren't sure where everything stands with the virus, I am planning a virtual Paper Pumpkin-palooza! You are all invited! All you need to do is make sure you sign up for the September Paper Pumpkin Kit by September 10th so you will have a lot of the supplies we will use for this virtual class. To sign up, click this link (Remember to subscribe by Sept. 10, 2020):

I will probably add to the kit contents with other product, but I will let you know what I am using before the class. I am not sure what I will make yet, and I can't show you a photo of the projects, because I don't know what is in the kit yet, but I have a feeling that this kit is going to be amazing!

The date for the Virtual Class will be Tuesday, September 29, 2020 at 10am. I will send the technical details out before that date so you can join in the class!
I am super excited about this and I think this is a fun way to do a class at this crazy time!
