Magnolia Trio Set
Hello Friends! I know a lot of you really want to start creating cards, but it seems really hard. If that thought is crossing your mind, you could be overthinking a design.
Today I have a super simple set of cards, that can be created with just a few items
Magnoliatriocards1_Sept_latishayoast
This card set is using the new Magnolia Moments collection.  It has that Urban Farmhouse look that is so on trend right now.
Magnoliatriocards2_Sept_latishayoast
The base of the cards are all the same. White cardstock, with two different pattern papers adhered directly to the cardfront.

What makes each card different is the placement of the diecuts, which were adhered with foam adhesive.

My advice, is to start with a simple design. Then create a bunch of cards with that design until you are bored with it, and then repeat with another simple design.

I was so happy to get a family photo this year on the Fourth of July, and I knew Magnolia Moments was perfect to showcase this photo. There are so many perfect quotes featured in the Frames package and I found one that was exactly what I wanted.

Good Day Sunshine
Hey there Fancy Pants fans! Nicole here today to share a super summery page using the great On Our Way collection. I just LOVE the bright and vibrant colors in this line.

I created a watercolor like background on the center of my page and added a row of punched half circles to create a sun-like design. The golden yellow patterned paper is so perfect for some of those summer photos that I know you have been capturing lately!

Next, I added a large black diecut title to the center of my “sun” and added some thin strips of the rainbow striped patterned paper in the collection. I added more rainbow by stamping a rainbow of hearts along the bottom of my photo mats using the On My Way clear stamps and a variety of inks.

Hello Sunshine

Hello Sunshine!
Although the On Our Way collection is meant for travel/vacation photos, I think it is perfect for other projects as well. I couldn’t resist using some of the more feminine colors in this collection to create this project.
Hello Sunshine full
By die-cutting flowers on my digital die cutting machine from multiple papers in the On Our Way collection, I was able to layer together some pretty petals in soft pink, red and yellow around my photo. The die cut flowers create a focus back onto the single photo on the page.

The fun adhesive backed buttons in the On Our Way collection were perfect addition to the center of some of the smaller die cut flowers. So great that they come with foam adhesive already in tact!
