Blended Bloom

I struggled creating a card using this stamp set.  The image does not have leaves and the cards I have seen online are "missing" leaves.  I decided to offset the image, like I did on THIS posting.  After I colored the image I didn't care for the white space and a stamped sentiment made the card 'meh.  I am happy with the final card even though it took an hour to fill in the white space.

Auburn Football Fans

Found this paper for a steal and couldn't pass it up.  I started with a blank canvas, the color very similar to Stampin' Up!'s Brilliant Blue (now retired).  I wanted something cheerful and selected Pumpkin Pie as my "pop" of color.  The beautiful colors of Auburn University in Alabama.

I don't color well.  I mean, my coloring is ALWAYS lousy.  That is until Stampin' Blendabilities came on the market.  There are so many great YouTube videos that show you how, step, by step.  My FAVORITE how to is not on YouTube; I discovered a handy guide created by Kaitlyn.  Click HERE for the link to that guide.

NEW Crafts by Beth CPP

What is Crafts by Beth CPP?  It stands for Click, Print and Punch.  I have made Adobe Files that can be used in place of hand-stamped sentiments.  The new change now includes sentiments using the Word Window punch.



Please click HERE for various ways I have used Crafts by Beth's CPP.


These are my Sentiment CPP files:

  1. Best Wishes Word Window All Occasions
  2. Congratulations Word Window All Occasions
  3. Deepest Sympathy Word Window All Occasions
  4. Get Well Soon Circle, entire sheet & Word Window All Occasions
  5. Happy Birthday Circle and Word Window, entire sheet
  6. Just for You - Circle and Word Window All Occasions
  7. Praying for You - Circle and Word Window All Occasions
  8. Thank You Circle, entire sheet & Word Window All Occasions
  9. Thinking of You Circle, entire sheet & Word Window All Occasions
  10. With Sympathy - Word Window All Occasions
These are my  Gratitude and Prayer Journal CPP files

  1. Gratitude Journal Circle, entire sheet
  2. Prayer Journal - Circle, entire sheet

    If the notation says Circle, entire sheet, that means you will get 42 of the same sentiment on one sheet.  If the notation says  Word Window, entire sheet, that means you will get 68 of the same sentiment. If the notation says All Occasions, the number of punches of each sentiment vary.

    If you would like to purchase my Adobe File Sentiments and Journal files, they are available now for only $3.49.  Buy Now through PayPal. You will receive by email the Adobe file(s) within 48 hours.


    Upon special request, I can make you a personalized CPP monogrammed with your initial(s).  I can only create a personalized monogrammed file using the 1/4" circle punch.  A one-time set up fee is $3.49.  Please email me HERE.



    Upon special request, I will print sheets using Stampin' Up! Whisper White and/or Very Vanilla cardstock. They will be mailed FLAT and you will have to punch them using your own hand punches.  The initial cost is $1.99 plus $1.00 for each printed sheet.  Shipping is not included.  For more information, please email me HERE.
