August Card Kit...

These are from the Simon Says Stamp monthly card kit for August. Yes, I know it's September but I am not the quickest draw in the west. I only made two types of cards from the kit of possibilities because I couldn't find the corresponding videos on the website. That's not because they aren't there. It's because I am the WORST navigator of the web!! BUT... I still loved making these cards!

What is really great about these kits (this was my first btw) is that it gives you an opportunity to use products you might normally walk on by. That would be the case with these flowers. They are velvet and are made by Maya Road. I wouldn't have given them a second look in the store but they really work on this layout. Also in the kit was some rick-rack. That was SO FUN to work with and I loved the effect. I've made a dozen cards and counting so far... woo hoo!! The kit also includes a set of acrylic stamps that I can continue to use on other projects. So, for the money, it is a great resource for stepping out of your comfort zone and trying new things...


  1. Thank you for posting these! I love the layouts and using the border stamp is something I want to try. Every card is beautiful. I have some paper pads that I could use this way and try my hand outside my comfort zone as well.

  2. Great cards. They may have been out of your comfort zone but you did fantastic. TFS
