Flip Flop Color Wheel Card

For the last two weeks, I have been struggling with the billing department of my dentist (note: As of Friday, the struggle appears to have been resolved in my favor. I am a skeptic, so, time will tell!). One day last week, one of the phone calls sent me over the edge…I needed RETAIL THERAPY on a budget! I ended up at Newton’s Nook…and I am am thrilled with the products I selected, the shipping cost, and the shipping time

I knew what I wanted to do with the flip flops before I even got the package open.

I used my handmade wreath building tool (inspired by GinaK Designs Wreath Builder Templates ) to position the flip flops perfectly.

You Are Strong (with Basic Grey Romani) Card

This is a scrap of my favorite Basic Grey Romani line of paper from more than 10 years ago. My stash is down to one half sheet. SIGH. And Basic Grey went out of business.

I paired the delicate floral with “You are strong”, and I am sending it off to someone who could use a reminder of just that.

Supplies: Stamp – Essentials by Ellen, paper – Basic Grey Romani, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Sour Apple, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, die – My Favorite Things, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, twine – MarkerPop.

Supplies: Stamp – Papertrey Ink, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Paper Pizazz – Blue stars, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, twine – MarkerPOP.
