Lisa Day created these beautiful everyday cards. Make a bunch of these and be ready for any occasion!


1. Kraft cardstock card base = 4.25” x 5.5”. Cut one sheet of patterned paper to 3.75” x 5.25” and adhere to the right of the card leaving a 1/8” border.
2. Cut a 1” x 5” piece of paper and add a border punch to the left side. Adhere to the left of the card overlapping the larger sheet of paper. Leave a 1/4” border on the top and bottom and a 1/8” border on the left.
3. Cut a longish strip of crape paper and fold in half. Pleat the crape over the seam of the two papers. Trim off any excess.
4. Draw an black stitched border along the edge of the papers.
5. Add 3 flowers to the top of the crape paper near the bottom. Using the tiny alphas add a quick sentiment.

Lily Bee supplies:
Picket Fence 6x6 Tiny Tablet
Happily Lost 6x6 Tiny Tablet

Petaloo supplies:

Virginia Tillery created this layout about her daughter and a teacher who's moving away. The whole layout is so sweet and soft.


1. Cut one long strip a little wider than all your pictures, and the length of your layout background. Use border punches to create a layered side border. 
2. Adhere photos, and embellish around the photo area with scattered flowers, in various sizes. Intersperse with stickers and hand cut paper leaves. 
3. Use stickers to create banners, and adhere title above. Use journaling spots to write journaling. 
4. For final touches, use a turquoise inkpad around edges of entire layout. Add doodling and outlines with a black pen. 

Lily Bee supplies: 
Happily Lost Patterned Paper- Amazing Views, Good Book
Picket Fence Patterned Paper- Fresh Air, Cottage Garden
Happily Lost Mixed Cardstock Stickers

Petaloo supplies:
Sweet Pea (all white)
Flora Doodles- Jeweled Florettes (all white)

Those are fantastic!!
Lisa's style always amazes me - I had the pleasure of working with her once and I am still very happy about that. Such a sweet, talented lady!
I HEART those cards!! Might lift them, Lisa - hope you don't mind! ♥

The LO Virginia made is super cute, too! It's so happy and playful.

GREAT job, all and all, ladies!! The previous posts have been amazing, as well - you sure have a great team here and I can see that you all had as much fun creating with Petaloo/Lily Bee as I did. :D

Katie May 11, 2011 at 1:22 PM  

I really love the projects today! You guys are making card design seem so simple with your pattered paper and Petaloo flowers. They really are fabulous cards. And this layout is beautiful! I love how you did the name mrs. Laura on the banners, it looks so good! I love all three paper collections but these two, happily lost and picket fence are probably my favorites! The chipboard elements look really good as well. And the flowers are lovely. Thank you for sharing!
