SPD June Release Day 1 - Meadow Motifs

Thanks for stopping by! It's Sweet Peek Week at Sugar Pea Designs! We've got a whole week of samples made with the new release to share with you! If you're hopping along you should have reached me from the amazing Amy Kolling's blog. If you'd like to start from the beginning and get all the details, you'll find them here at the Sugar Pea Designs Blog.
Today we're introducing Meadow Motifs, Everyday Sentiments, Sentiment Strip Dies, and the Spirograph Stencil.
I started my card with a distress ink background of Carved Pumpkin and Mustard Seed. I spread Golden Light Molding Paste over the Spirograph Stencil and then sprinkled it with glitter. I set it aside to dry and colored images from Meadow Motifs with Copic Markers. 
I fussy cut the florals and arranged them around a Zig Zag Circle Sugar Cut. The sentiments are from the new Everyday Sentiments (a sheet of so many sentiments!!) and die cut with the new Sentiment Strip Dies. 
Ready to see more garden inspired projects made with the beautiful Meadow Motifs? Your next stop is the talented Kelly Lunceford. Here's the entire list of designers sharing projects today!

Momenta Rainbow Flower Border

I hope you're having a great weekend! Did you know that today is Nature Photography Day? I hope the sun is shining and your feeling up for a walk in your favorite park or forest preserve so you can get some great photos on this Summer Day! 
If the weather in your part of the world isn't cooperating maybe you should play with your crafting supplies. I love to craft, especially in the winter when my garden is enjoying it's winter slumber. I can make a rainbow of colors that make my heart happy.
This card was created with a color block technique. I cut strips of colorful card stock in strips 5/8" wide. I trimmed them to fit the cover of my A2 card base and then topped it with the Momenta Flower Border die.
I die cut the "thank you" sentiment in a sheet of white card stock, and then cut it again with a circle die (you could also use a circle punch). I backed the die cut circle with a slightly larger solid blue circle so the color peeks through the openings.
You can find Momenta dies, stamps, stickers and more at your favorite local craft stores like Joann and Hobby Lobby. They can also be found on line at You'll love the designs and affordable pricing!

Pretty Little Studio - No Worries

Hello friends! I hope you're having a great day. Sometimes I get to thinking negative thoughts.. (stinkin' thinkin') worrying about the "what if's", and I suppose I'm not the only one who gets to feeling this way every now and then. This card is to remind me (and maybe you too) that everything is going to be ok. Let's focus on the now and try to enjoy it. We can deal with the "what if's" as they happen right? 
The Pretty Little Studio Bohemian Dreams Collection is perfect for setting your soul (and mind) free to focus on only light, love and positive energy! 
The focal point of my card is the 3x4" Groovy Journaling Card with the colorful feathers. I topped it with "OK" from the Dreamy die cut pack. 
I added Good Things Word Black sentiment stickers on and under the journaling card. The Star Gazer die cut pack has lots of great embellishments like the black arrow I ran across the feathers. The arrow is pointing to a half circle tab that says "no worries". Its from the Happiness cut aparts sheet. I love the cut aparts because they are very affordable at 99 cents a sheet, and they're easy to cut out with a 1" hole punch. 
Shake away your troubles - they'll be waiting for another day. Live in the now and enjoy today!
