It's a new month over at Gossamer Blue and the line up of kits is fantastic. Using mostly the Bits & Pieces Kit, I created a set of six mason jar themed gifts. I might have a little luncheon for some retired ladies or at the very least, I'll have some nice gifts ready in my stash.
I started out with some drawstring bags that I got at Michael's. I layered up all of the adorable mason jar tags and filled them with sequins and punched paper flowers.
Each jar was topped with a punch circle label with some Washi tape underneath.
Be sure to check out the Gossamer Blue Design Team galleries over at the website. The projects are just oozing with amazing-ness.

Hey everyone! The Gossamer Blue July Kits are now up in the shop. This month presented us with some amazing kits and all new projects from our brand new Design Team. Our own Peppermint Granberg took over illustrating my stamp concepts and she knocked it out of the ballpark. There were so many great comments on the stamps this month, thank you!
Today I'm sharing some journaling cards I created to have on hand to scrapbook my daughter's recent trip to Chicago. I love all the travel themed products in the kits this month so they came in very handy. I reached for the Life Pages Add-on #3 (now sold out, it was a good one) mostly. I love to just rip open a kit and sort out all the pieces and parts.
Life Pages Kit. That little camper turned out soooo dang cute. I just swoon over anything Peppermint does, right?

Today I'm sharing Week 7 of my 2015 Project Life. I used One Little Bird journaling cards that I downloaded and printed here at home. I love Peppermint's designs so much. Clean and simple and so easy to use. Here's the two page spread.

This Summer I have a made a bucket list of projects I'd like to make. I saw some flags on Pinterest and Instagram and they soon made it to the top of my list. My daughter's birthday is July 4th so it's always a big celebration around our house.
I started by collecting lots of vintage trims, ribbons and old table runners. That blue piece was perfect for my stars.
I laid out my design and started trimming yards and yards of vintage trims.
I stitched them all into place and just kept on creating since I had extra vintage materials on hand.
I added some details like these circles of old quilts I had in my stash.
Crocheted blue stars steal the show if you ask me.
We ended up with some pretty cool creations I call Freedom Flags. So perfect for showing your patriotic side and just in time for the July 4th celebrations.
HERE. They'll ship out quickly so you can decorate for the 4th. Hope you enjoy.

Hey all, I'm back and am happy to share a few projects I've been working on. It was a fun month at Gossamer Blue!
Today I'm sharing some sweet note cards I made using the June Gossamer Blue kits. The Bits & Pieces Kit (now sold out) came with an adorable set of note cards from Dear Lizzy. They were cute as they were but the kit also had some great coordinating chipboard stickers and a fun roller stamp from Amy Tangerine.
I added some chipboard stickers to each note card (2 of each style) and also some stamped images from the roller stamp. For the patterned paper that I added to the bottom of some cards, I used the 6 x 6 Pink Paislee paper pad from the Bits & Pieces Kit.
I loved this month's kits so much. The products are so colorful and cheery. I'm off to make some more cards because I am plum out of thank you cards. I'll be back soon to share more. Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi there. Today I'm sharing some embossed cards I made using the April Gossamer Blue kits. I started with the 6 x 6 paper pad and stamp from the Bits & Pieces Kit.
I trimmed down these small pieces to use on the card fronts.
Next I reached for my embossing powders. It's always fun to dig through your stash of supplies that you haven't used for a while.
I embossed "hello" on all the small pieces then layered them with green ledger paper and small, lined index cards. Paperclips and little top stitching added the finishing touches.
