Blooming Poppies, Sketchbook Imagine - and a New Look Book





Congrats to all of the Holiday Blitz prizewinners - enjoy your wonderful dies!  Jean Okimoto here today with some soft pretty colors - and a bit of sparkle for you.  I love the new Blooming Poppies Die - here's just a portion of it.  I'll use the other beautiful, delicate section on another card.

Memory Box Products

  • NEW Open Studio Pinpoint Rectangle Layers Die Set 30065

Imagine Crafts Product

  • Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz

Paint watercolor paper with overlapping shades of pink, blue, green, teal and yellow Peerless Watercolors.  Air-dry it.  Spritz it with Sheer Shimmer Spritz and air-dry it again.

Cut it with a Pinpoint Rectangle Layer.  Cut the left portion of the Blooming Poppies from Cherry Blossom - leave a ½" wide border at the bottom.  Trim the border with the scalloped Country Border die.

Cut "imagine" from Granny Smith - leave in it the die.  Attach ¼" wide Scor-Tape horizontally across the back of the diecut and cut it again to cut the adhesive.

Attach the pieces to a top-folded A-2 card of white cardstock.  Attach a clear mini-sequin over the first "i" in "imagine."  Attach pale pink sequins.  Coordinate the card with a matching Cherry Blossom Envelope. 

Spring seems to have come and gone so quickly this year...remember all of the great dies and stamps from the Spring Release in April?  They're featured - along with favorites from the January release - in the July Look Book.  I'm thrilled/happy/excited to share my just-released Look Book with you today!  I hope you like it - actually, I hope you love it.  




Thanks Dave - and everyone at Memory Box - for your great editing and photography - and for inviting me to share my ideas with everyone.   I love the cool, quirky titles you gave each card too.

Special thanks to everyone who took the Holidays with Memory Box Class at Impress last week  - I loved designing cards with the new release and hope you enjoyed the class!  I'll be teaching the class again at 1:30 on August 29, after the new Cool Winter Wishes class at 10:30 that day.


 Thanks for stopping by - see you again on Saturday!




Really beautiful.

Thank You Jan D. - hope you'll be inspired by the new Look Book!
