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!).
This was the last thing I created from this collection because I was down to scraps. As I was looking at the pieces I had left and thought about how to use them I spotted the Lawn Fawn die and knew this would be perfect.
There are quite a few elements here from a few different stamp sets. All the images are from Sunny Studio Stamps. The cowgirl and cowboy of course are from April’s kit. The cow peeking his head out and the horse are from Barnyard Buddies and were the perfect additions to this card. I wanted the background papers to really pop which is why I chose black as the cover and finally I embossed the sentiments with white embossing powder.
Here are the bookmarks! The dies are from MFT and I have had them for over a year, this was the first time I used them. They came out so cute that I am itching to make more.
I could NOT get enough of the paper from this collection! (I immediately got my hand on a full paper pad because so many ideas hit me when I saw it.)
The card on the left gave me a chance to do something new to me. The large doily type circle was in my scrap folder (thank you past self) but needed something more. I was crafting with my gal pals virtually (like we do now) and someone said it needs ribbon, well I had twine so I “sewed” it through the holes and voila!

Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde with this week’s fourth sneak peek for January’s Flavor of the Month card kit. This month is “All About the Boys” and if buffalo plaid isn’t a great fit for masculine cards I don’t know what is! I am excited to share today’s card with you and also tell a quick story of some confusion I had and maybe clear it up for you all too in case you have the same question I did. So here is my card which I created using collection two “Buffaloed”.
When I got my kit in the mail and opened and was pouring over all the collections I came to this collection and read the sentiments and thought “What in the world does Buffaloed mean?” I’m getting accustomed to not knowing new songs, new slang, and new actors/actresses. I thought I had new slang to learn but nope turns out it’s just a word I wasn’t familiar with. It means to be intimidated, so the way I used it on this card is saying “Don’t get buffaloed (intimidated). Stand your ground! Have a wild birthday!” Perfect for someone who may be facing a milestone birthday I think.
That’s it for this sneak peek I hope you find some inspiration and maybe a new vocabulary word 😉 . Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to check out this card. Don’t forget it’s sneak peek week so check out the other peeks from previous days and come back tomorrow for the last one before the big reveal!

Katie here from 2CraftyKaties to share a sneak from the June 2019 Flavor of the Month kit!
I used the stamps and paper from collection 3.
When I saw the otters and then the sentiment I instantly thought of Yin and Yang! So, I VERY carefully stamped them together and used my scan and cut to get this image! I used the following copic markers on the otters and in the space between them (I didn’t want the white space to be a focal point); BG23, E11, E25, E33, E35.
