Say hello to the Lovely Little Wreath! This adorable accent is the perfect addition to your springtime décor and makes a great gift for special occasions like Mother’s Day.

Usually we show three extra ideas for the kit, but this time our artist had so much fun that she came up with FIVE projects! So, what do a cactus, dinosaur, and Christmas have in common? Let’s find out.


It’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas, right? It’s easy to turn the Lovely Little Wreath into a holiday décor item. Simply swap out the yellow flowers for holly berries and use a holiday stamp on the chalkboard sign.


Next, with Mother’s Day right around the corner, add some festive foliage to create a glamorous gift box for Mom. Use the chalkboard tags and Very Vanilla Craft Stampin’ Spot from the kit. 


Raise your hand if you’ve picked up on the cactus trend. They’re everywhere, right? Create some eye-catching cacti with beautiful desert blooms with the extra flowers and leaves from your kit.


The bent leaves on the branches pop right off this prehistoric card. And, might we say . . . the end result is dino-mite!


Finally, keep it simple with a smaller version of the wreath to create a stunning centerpiece for a card front.

It’s always amazing to see what you can do with your Paper Pumpkin kit. Whether you want to change it up completely, or just use up the extra parts and pieces, the end result is always fun! If you’ve fallen in love with the Lovely Little Wreath, be sure to stock up on refills, while supplies last.

The REMARKABLE STAMPERS BLOG TOUR this month features great ideas for SPRING and the OCCASIONS catalog.  I am featuring the NICE CUPPA stamp set and thinlits that coordinate. We made these cards on our girls getaway weekend.  I'll have more to show you in the coming week.  Lots of great samples and ideas.
This is a shaped framelit card.  You die cut the folded cardstock but leave part of the fold inside while die cutting so that you don't cut the card into two pieces.  I used all coordinating products from this product suite.
The tea cup and the heart and the adorable tea bag are die cut.  LOVE THIS product!

 I know the colors are bright but that is what we need this time of the year as we head into spring and all of the lovely daffodils and tulips are coming up.
I always stamp my envelopes.  This card below was sent off to my mother. The sentiment on the envelope - WORLD's BEST MOTHER - suits my mother to "a tea!"

Some of the outside sentiments have SU! crystal effects on them.  This really highlights the card and gives it an extra "wow!" when you see it up close.
Do you like how the tea bag seems to be hanging out from the back of the envelope?  So cute!
Next on the Remarkables Blog Tour is Michelle Reynolds- Click HERE or on the graphic below.
