Ric rac, zig zag… chevron… whatever ya' wanna call it. :)  It's a classic pattern I've always loved and so fun that it's so "in" right now… I never get tired of it–such a versatile pattern!

I'm using it here as grass for my flowers, springling down from the watering can.

I'm also crazy nuts for this color of ink, lately–Adirondack Mountain Rose by Ranger. It's like a soft, washed out red–not pink, not red, not coral exactly… LOVE!

Had to accent the little flowers with some Buttercup Liquid Pearls–so sweet!

I precut and scored a whole bunch of 4 bar note cards (3.5 x 5") the other day, so I could bust out some 5MQs–so totally worth doing that!

June 1st already… How the heck did that happen?!

Today's the first day of Washi Workshop over at Studio Calico–can't wait to see what the other contributors have done!





  1. I just found your blog ,and wow I love your cards! Beautiful style you have! I follow your blog via e-mail now :)

  2. Oh, bless her heart! Give her a hug for me! :)

  3. My daughter and I were just looking at your blog and she screamed when she saw this card, “That one! That one is cute!” I agree. :) Love how you cut apart the sentiment.

  4. GAH! Love this card Julie! The little flowers coming out of the watering can kill me!!! And you know I love me some chevrons! :)

  5. Hey, Mary~ 4 bar refers to the card size, which is 3.5×5″. 5MQ is the abbreviation for five minute quickie because… See this post for why I tend to abbreviate it: http://papertrufflez.com/2012/05/5mq-good-times.html
