Guest Star May Flaum!

I am a long time fan of Jenni Bowlin and her products – and the reason is simply that they work. I can mix and match with bits of fabric and vintage ephemera, it blends well with other brands, and it never goes out of style. I find myself using pieces that are five years old – and JBS stuff never gets thrown out! I’m absolutely loving this newest release (no big surprise there!) and I’ve crafted some new projects to share with you today.

This layout combines two of the new stamps along with just a bit of cardstock and felt and new JBS goodies too. I love those calendar journaling papers – so great to add a date onto a page in a decorative way. I just circled the date the photo was taken!

I love adding in stitching, fabrics, and doilies especially when I’m working with JBS products. I mixed in an older rub-on with some of the newer papers and goodies for this simple and fast layered thank you card. A little bit of white stitching and I’m ready to send off a lovely (heartfelt) thank you to someone special.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my projects!
