Saturdays With LeAnn

Mini Envelope Card


Happy Saturday, my crafty friends! I hope this Saturday brings a ray of sunshine to your day! We are approaching a new week, and with a new week comes a chance to start over and try new things. I hope today’s inspirations will certainly give you some inspiring ideas!

Good Heart Layout created by Renee Zwirek

Sometimes your beautiful creations should be displayed in your home for not only you to enjoy, but also your family and friends. This layout is certainly one you could frame and hang on your wall. The beautiful white and gold flowers are made from the We R Memory Keepers Flower Punch Board. Some gold glitter heat embossed patterns were added to a few of the flower petals and leaves.

Mini Envelope Card Created by Michelle Woerner

This amazing card features the new mini envelope die set from Spellbinders. I find this to be such a creative way to give a gift card, money, or even a special note to a dear friend or family member. This is a three die set, so you can change out the top of your envelope.

Spellbinders offers you, the card maker, the ability to customize your card and create your own embellishments. Michelle Woemer has such a talent when it comes to designing her projects. If you get some time, visit her blog Stop & Stamp the Roses. You will be so glad you took the time to do so.

Accents With Studio Glaze created by Clare Horner

With Mother’s Day coming up on us so quickly, I couldn’t help but think of what mother wouldn’t love a handmade gift, and especially for the home. What a treasure to sit out or even display in her china cabinet! (This is a great way for her to brag about you). Today you will be so surprised to see how easy this is to create using StazOn Studio Glaze.
