I tried out some simple cards using Stampin' Up! paper and a 'Thank you so much!" stamp. I made the paper flowers using pages from an old book.
The paper flowers were made in two ways.
Flower number one was super easy. I used a circle punch with scalloped edges. I roughed up the circles a little bit and smoothed them out to add some depth. Then, I stacked a few together, punched a circle in the center with a mini hole punch and added a brad.
Flower number two was a little more detailed. I used the circle punch to create a cardstock base and then used the same punch to create circles that would eventually become petals.
I think the flowers would also be cute embellishments on a gift or on a picture frame.

Thankful for a warmer day and a moment when both of us were home, we set out to get the studio back into shape. My dad was also in town to help with the repairs. We had some pipes that froze and broke and my dad's expertise was what we needed to be back in business.
While the guys worked on the plumbing repairs, I reworked the store. It was fun to finally sort through all of the signs my husband has been making. He has been trying out some new designs and color combinations and I have several favorites in the bunch.
We look forward to being open again soon to show off all of the latest creations and finds.
