Hello! Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde joining you today with some more inspiration from April’s Flavor of the Month Card Kit. I am in awe of just how much I was able to get out of this collection!
I typically only make cards but this time I wanted to branch out and do a little something different…bookmarks! As a kid and even into adulthood I love bookmarks although I don’t have as much of a need for them with my Kindle and Kindle App on my phone but the need is still there (mostly to save my place in a book of card sketches!).
April’s Flavor of the Month card kit is sold out but do not be discouraged! We are about to enter a week of sneak peeks for May’s Flavor of the Month kit and you don’t want to miss it!!! Keep in mind if you want to ensure that you will get your own kit sign up for a subscription. If you want to wait and see what is coming I totally get that just make sure to be quick about buying your one time kit when it releases which will be May 30th at midnight EST. (Which most of us think of being Friday night, I do anyway.)
Thank you for taking a gander at my creations from the Howdy Partner collection! I’m much obliged.
Keep on crafting,
Hello, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a non-Card project.
I was looking at this paper that has wood boards on it and it made me think of paneling in my old trailer house. It screamed at me “Make me into a sign!”, so I had to do what I was told. LoL
I used a daisy die from MFT to make the flowers, also from papers in the collection.
The letters are made from the Lawn Fawn “Quinn’s ABC” stamp and die set with Stazon Ink also on papers from the same collection.
Twine bows and enamel dots from the collection finished it off nicely. The pearls were from my stash.
I made a set of gift tags with the leftover scraps.
I hope you’ve been enjoying all of the inspiration products the Design Team has had for you this whole month. I can’t wait to see what YOU make!!

Hello Everyone! Today I finished up Collection 3 from the April Flavor of the Month Card Kit! For 2 of these cards I was inspired by fellow design team member Stacy!
I cut down the yellow pattern paper for my main panel and grabbed 2 scraps to line on the bottom. I stamped the image out and die cut with a circle die. I saw that Stacy had use Distress Ink for this image on one of her cards and I LOVED the look so I did that here. I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I then gathered the twine and tried to tie int he center for a messy bow and used Range Multi Matte Medium to adhere it to my card. As the card sat on my desk, I kept thinking I needed a little something more so I added the 3 enamel dots to the upper, right corner of the card.
This card is VERY similar to card one. I didn’t have a long enough scrap for the bottom of the card so I used a stitched sentient die with a fishtail end. I popped the image up on foam adhesive and brought in more enamel dots .
This card it nothing like how I imaged it would be when I started. I used a larger “scrap” to die cut the Camera with flowers die that was found in the banana split portion of the kit. I added that piece to some yellow pattern paper from the collection with liquid glue – and what a mess I made!! There was so much glue I either had to scrap the piece or figure out how to cover it up. I decided to press on and cover it up. I used Nuvo drops to basically “color” the piece. I used Nuvo Glitter Drops in Yellow Bird for the flower pieces, Nuvo Crystal Drops in Woodland Green for the leaves and the Camera piece I used Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard.
This is the last card I made from this collection. I decided to try coloring the image with Copic Markers (these types of images are a little intimidating for me because I tend to be too heavy handed and my colors bleed so I tried to approach the coloring of this image by not trying so hard – and I think it worked.) I used up most of the left over pieces of pattern paper and also added the last 2 enamel dots I received in this collection.
The process video can be found HERE at the the SFL YouTube Channel.
The April 2020 Flavor of the Month Card Kit is sold out however the paper pads from the kit are available for individual sale (or if you just NEED MORE!?)
Hello! It’s Beth today from Bourbon Creek Crafts and I’m sharing a simple but beautiful Z-fold card I made using paper from the Bloom Wildly collection (which has become one of my favorite collections!). You can watch the full process in my video HERE.
To start, I cut a normal A2 size white card base (8.5 by 5.5 inches). I folded the card base in half and then took that top half of the card and folded it in half backwards towards the center.
Next, I added my patterned paper to my card base. For the inside of the card, I used the small peach floral pattern from the Bloom Wildly collection from SFL and cut it to be 4 1/8 by 5 3/8 inches. I also cut two pieces of patterned paper for the z-fold panels on the card. I used the floral woodgrain pattern also from the Bloom Wildly Collection and then the brown suede pattern from the Country Roads collection. I cut both of these pieces to be 2 by 5 3/8 inches.
I used a stitched rounded rectangle die to create two cardstock layers, one out of a seafoam green and a larger one in white. I also used the Hello die from Catherine Pooler Designs to cut my sentiment out of the green cardstock. I layered these on that front fold section. I also adhered a piece of white card stock on the inside of my card base that was 3 3/4 by 5 inches. This is the area where I can write my message. Then I finished the card off with some SFL peach sequins.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my Hello card!
Have a crafty day!

Hi there! It’s Beth back as a guest designer on the Scrapping for Less blog today. And today I’m sharing with you how I used up the rest of the March Flavor of the Month kit. This kit was one of my absolute favorites, so I was excited to use the rest of the kit goodies for more cards!!
I started with collection #1 and made good use of those cute little ephemera pieces! I was able to get an additional 9 cards out of the rest of this collection! The bunnies and pastel pinks and purples in this collection were so cute together.
I had used up all of collection #2 on my photo card that I made during the blog hop video, so I skipped to collection #3. The florals in this collection were stunning! I loved the combination of the aqua, peach and brown. I made another 8 cards using the pretty papers, stamps and sequins.
And, finally collection #4. I love daisies!! They are just so cheerful! I kept most of these cards clean and simple because I wanted that daisy paper to be the star. I love how it paired with the tan patterns on the backs of some of the papers. I made another 9 cards with this collection.
You can see the full process and more details on these cards in my video HERE.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed seeing how I used up the rest of this awesome kit and that you were able to find some inspiration to use your kit!
