Favorites from 2013 - Projects and Products

Hello friends!  On this last day of 2013, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite projects and products from the year.  
This is one of my favorite cards from 2013.  This sentiment and arrow embellishments as well as the speech bubble negative stamp come from Avery Elle Oh Yeah.  The stripes are from Avery Elle Texture Tiles Be Cool.  
I also love the addition of the sequins, I use Avery Elle sequins.    
Enamel dot love with a great sentiment stamp.   I have an enamel dot obsession this year… I just can't get enough of them!

And again, here…  Glitter & Enamel Dots - be still my heart!  I love the font on this stamp set so much.  

There are so many things I love about this card, I'm not sure quite where to start…  First, the stamps, sigh - Lawn Fawn - the cuteness kills me!   I used a journaling card by My Favorite Things, they have some incredible notebook/journaling card dies that I use all the time! 
Lawn Fawn twine is my absolute favorite.  21 yards of fun in a roll and I have used all 21 yards in my red and yellow in less than a year.   It's so nice and thick - it ties the perfect bow!

And then there's Paper Smooches…  Paper Smooches will always be my first love and it just gets better and better with every release.  This card I made for a dear friend on her birthday so it's a favorite already.  I love this cat - it cracks me up.  I love the witty sentiments in all of the Paper Smooches stamp sets and Kim's handwriting is my favorite.  
See that polaroid stamp?  It's from Lawn Fawn.  It's a stamp and die I could not live without.  

This is my favorite Christmas card that I made in 2013.   Sigh.  The birds and trees makes me happy. 
Again, the red twine.   I'm telling you - 21 yards of fun.  (It says that on the packaging!) 

This card is one of my favorites because it's simple, elegant but has so many little details that keep it from being boring.  The flowers are two-tone, a trend that I love!
The stitching along the periphery of the card is from a Lil' Inker die set.  I use it all of the time. 

In fact, I used that same die here on this card.  I simply just trimmed my rectangle to be wonky!  Eek, the Paper Smooches cuteness too! 

Ok, I'll be back very soon with a new card to share…  I hope you've enjoyed my favorite projects and products from 2013!

A bit of enabling…

See you soon! XOXO!
