Real Lemons… Not.

Sometimes, lemons aren’t really lemons, if ya’ know what I mean?

One of the dies in the Thankful Dies set looked like it could be a lemon… So, I figured what the heck, just DO IT! Oh, yes I did!!! *fist pump*  Yes, I did feel quite brilliant when I finished this!  *monkey clapping* So, although I only show one, I actually made a stack of  ’em to have on hand.

I layered the “Thanks a bunch” 3 deep to create a chipboard like thickness to it–with a heavier weight card stock, like Card Shoppe #100 by Bazzill, you can often get away with only 3 layers. :)

Oh, and, major miracle: I did a video for this and threw it up on YouTube… I should rename my channel, “The totally random video series by Julie”. The end.


Thanks for stopping by! :)


Designer note:  Washi tape is from my personal stash





You know what day it is, right?!  Yup! *head bobbing up and down vigorously*


So glad you’ve stopped by for the Essentials by Ellen Holiday 2015 Release Hop! I’ll be showcasing several of the new stamp sets and dies on my post today! *cheeky grin*

I did a video for the Got Candy design (matching dies are HERE)… You can watch it in HD on YouTube HERE. And, if you have a spare second, I could use a thumbs up–I appreciate that so much!


Sorry about the audio on this–I got a new mic for my laptop and haven’t quite got the hang of the best recording settings yet… argh!
