Saturdays With LeAnn

Another fabulous weekend is here!  Once again, I thank you for sharing part of it with me.  I hope you are all having an awesome September so far.  Today I have another dose of creative planning fun for you and I hope you will take the time to enjoy and create some of the fabulous projects I have to share.  You are going to be so inspired by these wonderful and talented designers.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Never Give Up By Nathalie DeSousa

Fall is one of my favorite seasons of the year.  The colors are amazing and the holidays are right around the corner.  The earthy tones in this lovely layout are perfect for this time of the year.  You are going to love this adorable layout created by the fabulous designer Nathalie DeSousa.  Sometimes it may be hard to know how to get started or where to begin, and Nathalie shows us how to build from the foundation up.

This layout is a great way to use the new Tall Alpha die set along with some of your watercolors, stamps, and embossing powders to give it a unique and outstanding flare.  Today you can learn how Nathalie created her layout as you follow her step-by-step video.  Let’s pop on over to the Living An Inspired Life blog where you can see more details of Nathalie’s layout.  Step out of your comfort zone and see what you create.  Have fun, my friends!

Thank You By Caryn Davies

Pull out your inks and have some fun with your stamps!  My challenge for you today is to take your stamps and let your imagination run wild.  You can almost make your flowers come alive by the different watercolors or markers that you use.  I just love how Caryn die cut one of the rectangles from the Pierced Rectangle set and mounted it with the frame on to the base.  This simply charming card will put a smile on anyone’s face and brighten up their day.

For a complete supply list and to see many other beautiful designs by Caryn, click here and I will be happy to escort you on over to Avery Elle’s blog for a visit.  You will be so inspired by all of the creative designs.  Handmade cards are such a treasure to receive.  Who will you send this one to?
