PPA 241 - a sketch challenge



 Hello Friends!

Do you ever get stuck for ideas? Sketches help alleviate hours of frustration for me and prevent that creative road block trying to find the perfect placement of my card components. This week at Pals Paper Arts, we have a wonderful sketch created by the very talented Nicole Watt. I hope you enjoy it and play along with us!


  • Add beautiful blossoms to any project with the Petal Potpourri and Flower Medallion Punch Bundle and save 15%. Create a bouquet, a garden, or a single perfect bloom. These Two-Step stamps give you so many creative options--combine individual stamps to build the final image you want in the colors you want.

  • There's just something I love about black & white with a pop of red. Stacked with Love Designers Series Paper Stacks are the perfect size for card fronts and backgrounds and a total 48 (4-1/2" x 6-1/2") double-sided designs is a great value for $6.95.


Enjoy your day!

PPA 239 - a color challenge


Can you believe it's Thursday already and time for another color challenge at Pals Paper Arts. This week we are playing with Crumb Cake, Real Red and Soft Suede. I adore this color combination!

  • I think I'm going through a shabby-chic-vintage sort of phase and I have been obsessed with making flowers. The largest flower on today's project, I made using Stampin' Up!'s  new Fun Flower punch. 
  • I punched out three flowers in crumb cake, sponged the edges and used McGills Paper Blossom Tool Kit and Stampin' Pierce Mat to give the petals some dimension. For the center, I punched two flowers using the the Boho Blossom punch....quick and easy!


  • To add a little something-something under the spray of flowers, I took the new White Jute Ribbon and cut it into single strips. The ribbon is 1-1/4" wide and is so pretty and ties beautifully! I purchased a couple rolls so you'll be seeing it on a lot of future projects :)
Enjoy your day!
