Hello fellow crafters!
Benny the Bigfoot is just adorable! I have been having fun making cards with him and his footprint. Here are a couple that I have come up with so far and I’m not even finished with all the goodies from this collection:
I am still playing with this collection so I’ll share the rest of the cards made with it on SFL’s Show and Share FaceBook Group. It’s a great place for inspiration and sharing what we’ve all been working on with our SFL purchased goodies.
Thank you so much for spending some time with me today here on the blog and I hope you’ll come back next Thursday and take a gander at more cards from another collection in the “Let’s Encourage One Another” Flavor of the Month card kit. If you haven’t already gotten your kit grab one here (ONLY 4 LEFT!!!), and if you want to be sure not to miss out on upcoming kits subscribe here.
Have a great day and keep on creating!
Hi, it’s Beth from Bourbon Creek Crafts on the SFL blog today! I used elements from the May 2020 Flavor of the Month kit to make this bright and cheery triple shaker card! The colors in the Weather Together collection just make me happy when I look at them! You can see a full process video on my card HERE.
I started out by using the Sunday Stamps sketch #56 for the basic layout of my card. It was a perfect layout to use the ribbon that came in the Weather Together collection of the kit. And, I decided to turn the 3 circle elements on the sketch into small shaker windows.
I chose the Blu Raspberry cardstock from the kit as my A2 size cardbase and the rainbow striped paper from the Weather Together collection (collection #3 in the kit) for my mat.
To make my shaker windows, I punched 1 inch circles from heavy duty white cardstock and then used a 1.5 inch scalloped circle punch to punch around the 1 inch circles to create my shaker frame. I repeated this 15 times (because I couldn’t seem to make foam work for these small frames🤦♀️)! I added the clear transparency circle (1.25 inch circle) under my top layer of the scalloped frame. Then I just used liquid glue to add the other 4 scalloped layers. This gave my frames some depth.
I wrapped one piece of the ribbon from the Weather Together collection around the bottom of my card mat and then the other down the left side so they overlapped. Then I adhered my card mat to the cardbase.
I punched 3 more of the scalloped circles to use as my shaker window base layer and adhered these on top of the vertical strip of ribbon. Then came the fun part of adding the sequins (and of course I added a few too many!).
I stamped the “You are awesome” sentiment from the Little Lady stamp set (from the Little Lady collection #4 from the kit), backed it with the turquoise side of one of the papers from the Weather Together collection. I decided to add it under the middle shaker window. Then I added some 1/2 inch punched circles from that same turquoise paper to the upper right hand corner of the card. I think it turned out very cheerful and would make a great encouragement or congratulations card!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed this bright and cheery project! If you have a tip for adding the dimension to tiny shaker frames, please let me know!!!!
Hello Cardmakers! I hope you are doing well this morning.
This month’s theme is all about encouragement.
How about taking one of the words in the acronym above and making it your word for the coming month? My word is going to be motivation! Motivation to send out at least 3 cards a week to encourage someone.
The design team and guest designers this month have created some absolutely fabulous designs with the card kit contents. Hop on through and take a look. One person I know who encourages people each and every day is Courtney Kreeber, she has helped design components of this month’s kit. Her group Handmade Happiness over on Facebook is all about encouraging each other.
Who have you encouraged today? Check out this wonderful card kit centered around encouragement over on the Scrapping for Less website. Also check out the SFL blog post and make sure to enter the Rafflecopter.

Hello, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up on the Scrapping for Less Blog today with two projects I made with products from Collection 4 of the soon to be released Flavor of the Month Card Kit.
First up I made a checkbook cover. I like to be able to customize my stuff so I thought this was a fun idea. You can get the clear checkbook covers on Amazon HERE.
Next I covered a notepad I had purchased at Dollar Tree. You can purchase the notepads HERE. The notepads measure 4″ x 6″.
If you’d like to make sure you reserve one of these kits in your name (last month they sold out right away) then you’ll want to sign up for a monthly subscription (plus it saves you extra money over the one time purchase price). This kit is absolutely adorable! I am so in love with the papers and stamp sets in this kit.

It’s Sneak Peek Week!! I’m super excited to share this card with you. I love how bright the pattern paper is and this is the sweetest Big Foot! I stamped out the image with Copic friendly ink and colored with warm gray markers. I added lots of sparkle with the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen. I used the Lemon Drop card stock for my card base and the mat my pattern paper so they wouldn’t blend together.
I chose to decorate the inside by adding a strip of pattern paper, the sentiment and stamped the image again with Memento London Fog Ink.
Stay tuned for more sneak peeks this week and the full reveal will be Saturday, May 30 at 12:00am!
