Hi, Stampers!

Since this year is behind us, it’s an excellent time to look back and see what went well. So, I am joining the 2022 Year In Review Blog Hop. The best part of this blog hop is that YOU can join in, too! You have till January 5th to pick your very own favorites and join in the fun. Once you have created your blog post, simply click on the link at the bottom of this post to enter.

Picking my favorites is always difficult but as I was going through my gallery, there were definitely ones that I felt really good about. Because I was out of commission from my crazy move from Michigan to Chicago for a few months, my picks aren’t in month order but rather in loose rank order. I’ve included a link to the original post for each creation, so if you’d like to find out more about each card, simply click that link.

This collection of cards shows my new love of fun fold cards (the easy ones). And it shows my love of nature and flowers! So, which ones do you like? Please let me know in a comment and you might win my blog candy offer (see below)!

This card came together so nicely and the coloring on the flowers and leaves came out pretty much exactly how I wanted. Love the background die, which made the designer paper even prettier!

Caroling Mice Bendy Gatefold Card

How fun is this holiday card! I just loved this sweet host stamp set and the designer paper really elevated the card. The inside is just a sweet, I think, due to its bendy fun fold!

In The Moment Fun Fold Card by Secrets To Stamping

In The Moment Triangle Trifold Card

I love this card because the image reminds me so much of my beautiful daughter, Sarah. She really loved this card and appreciated the green shirt! LOL Even the fun fold is great, and used a citrus designer paper that she really loved as well.

Cottage Rose Fun Fold Birthday Card by Secrets To Stamping

Cottage Rose Fun Fold Card

This card is a great fun fold to have a few layers for more sentiments and pretty pastel papers (my favorite!). The Cottage Rose flowers were stamped, colored and paper pieced together for dimension. Love it!

True Beauty All Occasion Card by Secrets To Stamping

True Beauty All Occasion Card

What I just love about this card is not only the pretty flowers that were cropped out from designer paper but the pretty background die that shows them off. I popped up the middle section to mimic the same pattern and added just a touch of bling.

Nature's Harvest Fun Fold Card by Secrets To Stamping

Nature’s Harvest Angled Gatefold Card

Firstly, this fun fold design was huge this year, so I had to give it a go. It was lots of fun to create and I have tips to help anyone make it in my post. Obviously, I love this beautiful flower because it’s the only one that is on this favorites post twice!

Color & Contour Suspended Book Fold Card

This book fun fold really intrigued me and wanted to make it the star of the card by using neutrals with just a pop of Petal Pink. I just love how it stands up for display.

Paradise Palms Fun Fold Birthday Card by Secrets To Stamping

Paradise Palms Side Step Card

Because my husband is obsessed with the ocean, I have to make nautical themed cards for him. These palm trees remind me of our years of living in Florida, which DH misses (but I sure don’t!) – and coloring the gems to look like coconuts makes me smile every time.

Easter Friends Pocket Front Card

Wow, another fun fold made my list but it’s the adorable duckling and coloring the same grass pieces in different colors that I really love about this card.
