Bring On The Sunshine

It feels like we've skipped Spring and jumped head first into Summer here. With temperatures in the upper 80's-90's, we're seeing lot's of bees and flowers already.

I took this opportunity to pull out The Birds & The Bees and A Pocketful and paired them with some bright primary colors, red and yellow with green. I stamped the flower pocket fillers from A Pocketful across the bottom of my focal panel, and added my bee, sentiment and trail, all from The Birds & The Bees just above them.

For something a little different, I divided my ribbon banners and let the focal panel run between. This creates the illusion that the ribbons are running behind the panel, but uses less ribbon.

While I'm here...if you're reading this through a feed reader, you may not have noticed that the blog has been treated to a much needed makeover. Yay! No more embarrassing looking blog! Well, it's still quite simple, but at least now it matches the website.

Speaking of the website, I wanted to let you know that we've also enabled "Quick Views" at the store.

Now, when you hover over the middle of a product image when browsing categories, a "Quick View" button will appear. Click this and the product details will be displayed in an overlay window. You can "add to cart" or choose to view the full details page from here.

This means faster browsing for you and no waiting on page loads. I hope that you all find this helpful and that it improves your online experience at the store!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a fantastic day!


  1. Your card is sooo beautiful! LOVE it!

  2. This card is adorable, especially the lace trim and beautiful stitching! Thanks so much for always looking to improve the customer experience while shopping--the quick view will be a big help! Now I just have to wait for my stamping budget to catch up with my wish list. *sigh*

  3. Love the new look of your blog, and that card has the most beautiful, rich saturated tones - love it!

  4. I love your card - you have such a great eye for color. And can I just tell you that even without the quick view, your website is just the best? I love that I can start typing something in the search box and an entire preview comes up. And I've noticed that it now suggests coordinating dies for sets. Cuz' I am lazy like that and can use all the help I can get!

  5. Beautiful card Dawn!!!Like the New blog look .Quick view is a great help!

  6. Super duper ADORABLE, Dawn! LOVE those bold, bright, happy colors and all your fantastic trims! Yea for ease of the website, too! Oh, I just got a fabulous, little pkg. in the mail today. Woohoo!
