Hi there! It’s Suzanne here today! Just when I think I’ve seen all the combinations of the A Way With Words, another one comes to mind. Here is one…..
And here is how you can make it.
It’s Suzanne here today with a completely unexpected gift idea! Do you know someone suffering from spring allergies? I do! Here is a little surprise for that sniffling special someone. Scour the secondhand stores for vintage cotton or linen handkerchiefs and tuck one inside the sweet envelope you’re going to make. “But Suzanne,” you’re thinking, “You don’t have a die that says ‘Bless’!” True. But I do have a die that says ‘Blessings’ and with a couple of cuts you’ve got just what you need. Here’s how…
It’s Suzanne here today with a sweet and easy project for your home or workspace. There are many kinds of blessings and many ways to remind yourself of the those blessings you are fortunate to have. For this project I have chosen shabby but elegant styling. To make your own version, combine patterned papers in colours of your choosing to create just the right mood and to coordinate with your space.
Here is how you can make this eyecatching reminder…..
Calendar Makeover by Judi Kauffman
My friends love knowing that I will turn their old calendars into something brand new! It’s a January ritual that extends throughout the year. Here it is March and I’m still having fun slicing and dicing the pages…
I cut some of the pages and fold them into envelopes. I cut other pages into small pieces for layering onto card fronts and gift tags! If the paper is heavy enough, I’ll even die cut some sentiments.
When I’m done, I give some of the cards and envelope to the friends who donated the calendars! I get to have the fun of repurposing would have otherwise gone into the recycling bin, they get to enjoy the calendar again in its second incarnation.
