I hope you’re enjoying the celebration today! This little popcorn box will sparkle on my table today filled with …chocolates! I made this with the new Popcorn Box die in Pacific Point, Real Red, Whisper White and Silver Glimmer paper. This box is tiny – smaller than a pop can – but it’s HUGE on cute! Have a safe and fun day – Hugs, Fran
Another Love & Affection catalog case. I think these colors are beautiful together. And I love the sentiment! You can see the entire Affectionately Yours Suite on page 44-45 in the new catalog. Hugs, Fran
It’s almost new catalog time! This is a case of a card on page 44 of the catalog. Since I didn’t have the copper thread, I used burlap. The new copper embossing powder is gorgeous! You will love the look 🙂 Hugs, Fran
This is a case of a card on page 36 of the new catalog! Such pretty colors! I changed up the embossing folder and used the new Floral Affection folder. The doily is a gold doily – just flipped over to the white side. The colors are Wild Wasabi, Sweet Sugarplum, and Pool Party on a Crumb Cake base. Love these colors 🙂 Hugs, Fran
Pick a flower (card!) Both of these cards use Flower Shop and the same colors. One background is embossed with the Honeycomb embossing folder and the other
uses a stencil and Soft Sky ink to create the background. Which one do you like better?
In honor of Shannon West’s (from Stampin Up) campaign – I’m Bring Birthday’s back – this month’s Creative Circle Blog Hop is a darling, perpetual calendar!
The box has two cubes that can be rotated for the days of the month (remember that the 6 is also the 9), a flip top for the months, and a space int he back to hold your birthday cards so you can actually mail them out! (I am the worse!)
I used the Whisper White Heavy card stock and the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Pack to make mine. This paper stack has 48 sheets of double sided paper in it! My balloons on the front are from Balloon Celebration and are punched out with the matching Balloon Bouquet Punch.
This card uses the bow from the Cutie Pie Thinlit, more It’s My Party paper and the Elegant Dot embossing folder.
This card uses the Picture Perfect stamp set and Blushing Bride.
And last, but not least, this card uses the Bokeh technique. You can find it on Splitcoast here.
You can get the pattern here:

Fran Cassidy Sabad – You are here!
This simple card was made using the Stylish Stripes embossing folder on each end of the card stock so that there is an empty spot to decorate in the middle. It was inspired by one on Pinterest done by Kerry Bunting. She used a different EF and stamp set – but the idea is the same. For the Birds would make a cute set of cards using this technique.
I masked off the words, stamped the image and then stamped the words to the side and colored the image with Blendabilities. Hugs, Fran
The Designer Challenge for Karen Burniston continues with “white” – white as snow. I chose to use the Evergreen Pivot die and do a Triple Pivot Card Technique. The front of this card uses several different embossing folders, Karen’s Agatha Edges die and Stampin UP’s snowflakes found in the Frosted Sequins.
It’s so hard to see white on white in a photo!
The sentiment is from Beauty of the Season.

This card is for the Splitcoast September Creative Crew challenge to focus on the Typeset Designer Series paper. I embossed the Very Vanilla with the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake, On the Typeset panel I sponged and added my sentiment (heat embossed) and flowers from Flower Shop. Then I splattered Espresso ink on the card by tapping an aqua painter against my bone folder.
