Here's another travel layout that I made using the Hope & Kindness collection.4x6 Photo Sketch Blog. Her design that I copied is way better than what I had envisioned in my planning stage!

Hope & Kindness Layout
It's always fun to challenge myself to use our collections in (somewhat) unexpected ways. I thought the colors of the new Hope & Kindness special collection would match well with photos from our trip out West, and I have to say that I was right!

Cake Day Fab @ 50 Layout Share
My family and friends helped me celebrate a big birthday in a big way earlier this year! I thought that Wildberry ended up being a great addition to the black & gold color scheme of the layout I made to commemorate the celebration.

May Stamp of the Month with Hope & Kindness
Hope & Kindness is a beautiful collection available this month only. I paired it with a sentiment from the May stamp of the Month, You Can Do Anything, to create this simple card.
I inked up the sentiment in Desert Rose and Harbour and added a gold glitter gems to finish off this pretty (if I do say so myself) card.
You can view all of this month's special offers HERE before they're gone!

May Stamp of the Month, You Can Do Anything, Mountain Card
The mountain scene in the May stamp of the month, You Can Do Anything, is so peaceful that I thought it would make a nice retirement card.
After stamping the image (and a few clouds) on a 3.75"x5" panel of White Daisy cardstock, I colored the image with watercolor pencils. I chose greens and blues to mimic our Appalachian mountains and lake living. I blended everything with a paint brush and water, then added some Lemonade shimmer brush to the sun. I wonder how it might look with some sun rays but was afraid to go too over the top. I finished it off with a Postage Frames Thin Cut in Sapphire.

Fresh Paint Card
Our daughter flew to Paris on Tuesday to study abroad this summer, and I snuck this card into her suitcase to wish her bon voyage!
I used the Fresh Paint collection (paper, scrapbooking stamp set, and acrylic shapes) and sketch from Make It From Your Heart.
I am happy to report that she made it safely and loved her card.
