I followed the pamphlet that was sent along in the kit. Created these 4 cards, that came with all the cut pieces to create my cards (the first shown above is my favorite), and they even came with 4 envelopes. Here is the stamp set that came in August's Bloom Box Kit:

Sunflower Owl

Good Day Little C's Fans!!!!  I pray and hope your long weekend was a blessed one. I am sorry if you are in places that have crazy storms and crazy fires going on. I am praying for each and every one of you. I pray that the rains will come for places that have fires, and that the storm will be calmed for those that are facing hurricanes that are approaching quickly. I pray for safety and for protection, over each of your household and your families. I pray for strength and health during this time.  I pray all these things in the name of Jesus!!!!

Now to share with you today's project... I created these 2 cards using the digital file called "Sunflower Owl" from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. I love that she is making a combo of digital and cut files together, because I like to use BOTH types of files. The neat thing is that she also has a pdf file of the cut pieces, so for those of you that don't have a cutting machine, you're able to hand cut them!! You could also create digital layouts, or print out and use in your planner. Gosh! SO MANY WAYS to use!!! The huge plus is that the images are always so adorable.

Anyways, here are my cards....


Additional supplies used:

  • Cardstock: Summer Days, Cocoa Powder and Whip Cream from FSJ
  • Journey Twine Natural from FSJ
  • Journey Circle Die Cuts from FSJ
  • Sentiment & "Prayers" Die Cut from Taylored Expressions
For FSJ products, you can find them all here at my website:

Have a blessed week!!!
