Lily Tag

Hi Everyone! It’s Tina here today for Susan’s Garden Club.  My DH works with flowers, before I met him I honestly didn’t know much about flowers except roses and tulips.  This tag is inspired by him for the beauty he showed me and bestows on me week after week.  Lilies have become one of my top 5 flowers.  Here are the steps to recreate this Lily tag.


Tag measures 2 1/4″ x 4 1/4″

  • Die cut patterned paper with Tags & More 5 – Sunburst, cut to length 4 1/4″.
  • Die cut patterned paper with Stitched Ovals 1113, adhere with pop ups to base of tag.
  • Die cut colored cardstock with Garden Notes – Lily 995.  (For the stem base use clear double sided adhesive, this will make it easier to attach to the tag). Here is a wonderful tutorial by Susan’s Garden to help you with the assembly of the Lily.  Shape with Susan’s Garden  Tools.  Once assembled and dry, adhere to Stitched Oval.
  • Stamp or print sentiment of your choice and adhere to tag.
  • Tie a piece of white mesh around the tag toward the bottom.
  • Tie a ribbon through the hole at the top of the tag.

I hope you enjoyed this simple but elegant tag. It can be attached to a gift, a card, or simply use it as is. It is quite versatile.

Pinwheel Glittered Card


Hi everyone,

It’s Frances here and it is my turn to post a tutorial. Elizabeth Craft Designs recently released 21 new colors of Silk Microfine Glitter which are now added to my collection. 

One of the things I remember Els telling me when I first met her about 2 1/2 years ago was to keep the protective backing with the adhesive sheets when you use them as these pieces can come in handy when doing some glitter techniques. My project today shows how to make use of these saved up pieces from adhesive sheets and uses a couple of the new glitter colors.

Pop it Ups Rainbow and Balloon Card

Card Inside Front

Mary here with a Pop it Ups rainbow balloon card. Since the inside of this card is so colorful and has the pop up surprise, I wanted the front to be fairly simple. I chose a a small dot pattern in two colors for decoration. The inside is bursting with a full rainbow of color (literally!). The sentiment works perfectly, especially with the added color to each of the letters. Continue reading

Jasmine Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone. Annette Green here today from the Susan’s Garden Club Team with a sweet little gift card holder adorned with flowers made using Susan’s beautiful Jasmine Garden Notes die set. Sometimes gift cards seem a little impersonal, so placing them inside a decorative handmade envelope gives it that extra special personal touch. Let me share how easy the jasmine flowers are to make as I show the steps to making your own gift card holder.

Shimmer Sheetz Summer Seashells

By Judi Kauffman

Hello, everyone. I’m glad to be back as today’s guest designer.

If it weren’t for seashells and how the sun looks over water at dawn and dusk, I’d probably never set foot on a beach! There. I’ve said it. I don’t venture onto the sand unless it’s my preferred time of day or a season other than summer. During the hours that others are baking themselves and cavorting in the water I’m happily indoors, listening to a book on tape and making cards. Continue reading

A Way With Words – Autumn


Hello Everyone!!!  I hope this post finds you well!!  It’s Wanda here today.  We are in the midst of summer with some pretty hot days and then a couple cool ones thrown in over the holiday weekend earlier this month.  Cool enough that it made you think of Autumn.  It’s not often here in southern Iowa that you’d need a jacket on a July day!!!  So I took that cool weather motivation and created an Autumn piece that will look beautiful sitting on the counter in my kitchen when Autumn really gets here.

Boat on a Glittering Sea Greeting Card

Boat Card Front

Mary here today with a fairly simple yet fun card. This little boat is so adorable, I just had to make it with dimensional sails on an ocean scene. I used Transparent Glitter Dots stickers to give the water and portholes some sparkle. Since they are transparent, they take on whatever color is behind them. Continue reading
