Hi Lexi! I LOVE your bluebonnets and all the special details you added in your design. I've never lived in Texas but remember when we lived in North Carolina how the wildflowers sprang up and came to life on the roads and highways. It was an amazing site and one I never forgot. Have a blast at Mardi Gras, sounds like so much fun!! :)
Hi Betsy! I LOVE your bouquet AND your jar! The special touch of writing "Ball" is a wonderful. Plus I love your flower design. So today's comment is a message of love. :) Thank you for the joy and inspiration you give us all.
Hey Betsy, I wanted to correct my earlier comment, so it would be correct. #1 favorite- Confetti and 2) inner frame to Berry Boughs. You used it in today's post. I had trouble with the detailed insert to Snowflakes and the outer frame of Berry Boughs, even with the metal shim. But I'm seriously considering the Gemini. Thx again!!!!
Hi Betsy! I'm the happy owner of 7 Mix & Match frames(so far) and sad to see the series come to an end. It's not only a constant go-to in my cardmaking but has also been a great help. It helps to frame my focal point by decreasing the canvas size, if that makes sense. I LOVE that they are interchangeable. My favorite so far, is the Confetti. Coming in second is the middle section to Snow (plz forgive me, I forget the name), but was released for Christmas. I did have an issue with the detailed insert to Scallops and outer die of Snow, even with the metal shim. I have a plan in the near future for my more detailed dies. But this has been a truly wonderful series, and I want to really thank you. Very Much!! Have a great day!!
Hi Laurie! Plz take care of you & your family. The flu strains this season are more vicious than normal. Some of our family has come down with it & were sick for weeks. And thx for the tips Laurie, especially the embossing! Beautiful, soft card!!

Hi Laurie! I'm very sincere when I say thank you for sharing the details, on how you created your cards. It's so helpful! I'm a big fan of your work, usually over at Papertrey. Your last wreath card is a fav (so hard to pick). I'm working on a flower watercolor as I write this and using the same technique. It's because of designers like you, that we all learn. And have SO much fun. Heartfelt thanks! :)

Hi Heather! What a pretty card! You bring such beauty to a Kraft card base. (Btw, I've been studying your watercoloring lately and tried my hand yesterday with the Fresh Bouquet stamp). Thank you sharing your talent Heather, and I hope you have a great day! :)

Hi Betsy! CONGRATULATIONS on your new stamps and dies. I really liked ALL your cards today and the different designs. You must have had fun with the white pencil on your chalkboard and the teacup steam is so clever! (The white flour too!) I can see using Life is What you Bake it from baked gifts to cheerful encouragement cards. Wonderful release Betsy! :)
Hi Betsy! What a pretty, pretty post. I've re-read your glitter and glue pad process several times and Wow, it's a WONDERFUL tip! I have some old colored glitters but they don't match my inks. This is fabulous and so are your designs! THX for the inspiration! :)
Hi Lexi! Good morning. I knew when I first saw your card this morning, something looked a little different than "stamped". I was right, because you added pieces of left over tissue. Lexi, I just can't wait to try my hand at your gorgeous design! Have a splendid day!

Hi Laurie! Goodness, how very pretty your designs are! (But then, I love everything you make!) I've felt unsure, ink blending with bright pinks, but your bird card is Lovely and I think will give me more confidence going forward. And I love your sequin placement on the fancy foliage. Your dogwood card is GORGEOUS! Window works is one of my favorite dies and the shading you created is wonderful. Fabulous post Laurie! :)

Good morning! How clever,to make the save-a-date in a special way! Using the "Lucky" in such pretty wedding colors. Thank you for your beautiful work and inspiration. (I kept this short, yah!)
Hi Lexi! I have SO enjoyed the release on your Fiesta flag Birthday. Each day brings a new and VERSATILE design. I love the special details you added, like the trim on the cake plate. I just love everything and your pretty (in) pink birthday card too!

Hi Heather! The Give Love stamp pairs perfectly with the Brushed Birds and your card is beautiful. I really like the colors you chose and I especially like your sentiment placement. Your dogwood design is lovely! Have you thought about framing them? You're amazing Heather, thx for everything! :)

Hi Betsy! Gosh, where do I begin? To spare you a long comment, I'll just say that all of your designs today are among my very favorite. I know we always say that, but I LOVE the brushed birds and new Psalm quote. And Betsy, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for all the time and effort you put into your stamps and designs. (Did I say this would be short?) Have a beautiful day. :)
Hi Lexi! Quite Groovy, yes!! I was so excited about your Fiesta Birthday, that I looked up papel picados on line yesterday. After reading your blog today, goodness Lexi- the time and thought you put into this design is Very Worthy of a Grand Big Thank you. THANK YOU!! I love how you made your supplies stretch from one project to the next. And so you don't feel alone, i like unusual color combos too. :) I LOVE this Lexi! :)

Hi Wanda! How is your New Year so far? I hope you have a great one!! I also wanted to stop by and tell you how much I love your cards. I'm in awe of your "Missing You" card. It may be an old techniques, but you make it fresh and BEAUTIFUL! Thank you for sharing your process!
Hi Heather! I'm sorry I haven't thanked you already, for taking the reins on the blog and doing a beautiful job. Thank you! I hope it's getting easier and you're feeling more comfortable. I'm sure I speak for MANY, we love you Heather! :) And wow, this Fiesta Birthday is AWESOME. I love Lexi's design & banner. The tissue paper is such a fun idea! Thx again for everything! :)

Hi Betsy! My words can't describe how much I love your cards. The bear is adorable and I MUST learn how to make a shaker card, where it's a smaller space. Like your puzzle piece. Your "lots of love" is stunning! Really stunning! The extra coloring, shading & dimension, you add to your work is something I've been working on myself- Thanks to you and the Papertrey team. (And I want to add, all of you have done a WONDERFUL job, carrying on the Papertrey legacy and I can't thank you enough.) :) :)
Good morning Heather! I truly LOVE this release and your cards will make everyone who is under the weather, feel better andcared for. I also want to thank you, for doing an outstanding job with the blog. You had big shoes to fill and and Heather, you're wonderful! Thank you, thank you for the great job you're doing. I'm very grateful. Have a blessed day! :)

Hi Laurie! Gosh, talk about bright and cheerful, your cards are so pretty! You're the best when it comes to adding ribbon Laurie and making "sweet" surprises. I love the colorful bandaids too! Thank you for sharing your inspiration. :)

Hi Betsy! I can't decide which card is my favorite, so I realized, ALL 3 ! On your techniques, I found sponging darker ink colors, can be a real challenge. Maybe I'm too fussy about the blending looking smooth. Your Congrats card, knocked my socks off! What a beauty! I also need to go back to this year's Stamp a Faire, and brush up on the gilding flakes, as I haven't tried that yet. And that's how you inspire me, in a thousand and one ways! Thank you Betsy! :)
