Okay girls, bear with me while I shout from the rooftops exactly how much I love today’s steal! Not only are they beautiful, cute, simple, stunning and colorful, but today’s steal the Sassafras Stitch Blossoms are the perfect addition to so many different projects. I had such a great time using them on today’s card sketch that I couldn’t stop at making one card but had to make five!

The first card I made, became the inspiration for the remaning cards. I loved the flow of the design of the paper and recreated it with my remaining cards.

Now here’s a little fun tidbit — when I was creating cards I quite literally reached blindly into my paper kit collections and pulled out random paper kits to work with. The Stitch Blossoms are so amazing — in the fact that they come in such a variety of colors that I found flowers to match with every collection that I randomly picked to work with.

If that isn’t the sign of a perfect embellishment to add to your collection then I certainly don’t know what is.  :)

Don’t forget to have this week’s card sketch posted to our Facebook fan page or your own personal blog by
August 5th at 11:59 pm in order to be eligible for the July random drawing.

For those of you that participated in the second card swap, I can’t even begin to tell you how fantastic they are. They will be heading out to each of you in the next week so be on the lookout for some happy mail.

If you missed out on the most recent card swap, don’t fear! I can’t help myself and want to organize another swap right away! Here are the details.

  • Create 10 cards. They can all be the same or each can be different.
  • All cards must include an envelope.
  • Cards must be received to the ScrapbookSteals warehouse by August 31st. (ScrapbookSteals, Attn: Card Swap, 2181 California, #400, SLC, UT  84104
  • Once your cards have been sent in the mail, please send me an email to kristy@stealnetwork.com, to let me know that I need to be on the lookout for your amazing creations. I will then randomly re-distribute the cards and mail back 10 different cards to each participant.

Don’t forget the ongoing challenge to send out joy! I know I need to get busy and get writing some cards myself. I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
