Holiday Border, School House & Happy Mail

Happy Sunday, all! Here are a couple of tags and a card that I made using stamps from Purple Onion Designs.

First up is a tag that I made using one of the cute borders from Holiday Border Trio by Heidi Grace from here Heidi Grace Kress collections for POD.


Although this is a holiday stamp, you don't have to use it for just holiday projects. I love the versatility of it! The sentiment is from Holiday Greetings set also designed by Heidi Grace.


My second tag is made using School House set from Stephanie Ackerman's Hometown Collection. I love this collection from Stephanie, and she came up with a new Little Church set that was just released.


Last but not least is a card made using the new Happy Mail set from Paislee Press.


I swear that it took me twice as long to make a CAS card than my "usual" style card! It's so difficult to come up with a simple and balanced design. For that, I bow to all you CAS girls. =)

That's all I have. Don't forget to check the fun new releases over at Purple Onion Designs!



Have a happy day and thanks for stopping by!
