The big bundles

Of course, we have all of the products bundled up for you. It’s the easiest way to get it all from this release. Or, you can shop each of the products individually from the rlease product page.

5-minute creativity

As usual, I’ll focus on one project today, and then show you a few more projects that I’ll revisit in more detail in the coming weeks.

Today’s project is a 5-minute card! I came back to this idea at the beginning of the month with the Build-a-Flower Begonia because, let’s face it, everyone needs to have some quick card projects on hand! This one would be fantastic to make in a variety of colors that you could give as a gift pack, or just keep on hand for a few different occasions!

As someone who usually works in multiple layers, I like how these 5-minute cards stretch my creativity in making a beautiful 1-layer creation.
