New Release Sneak Peek Day 1 Crocus Craving


The new release is Thursday, October 11th!

We have four new sets we can't wait to introduce you to. It's only four days away.

In the mean time, check out these ideas for the first set, Crocus Craving! The images for Crocus Craving were drawn by Nebraska artist Sundri McGreggor.

The first sneak peek card was made by one of the SumMore Fun owners, Sabrina Sumsion.

The background was created after doing an project with Unicorn Spit. With the plastic pull method of creating, many times, there is spit that drips over the side of the mixed media project (like with acrylic pours). After doing a project, Sabrina swiped some white card stock through the puddles and let them dry. A purple crocus project was the perfect time to pull out this paper from her stash.

She matted the flower with a matching purple card stock. The coloring was done with colored pencils. She used the sentiments from Crocus Craving to add the message. She finished it off with drops of pastel yellow Pearl Pen in the corners.



The next card was made by our design team member Amy. She has all the details for this card on her blog A Tiger's Haven.


Jessica is no longer on the design team, but she's doing guest designs for us when she has time. She made a fabulous tag for this new release!Check out all the steps on her blog Polka Dot Orchard!



Our final card was created by a guest designer who is new to us. Introducing Courtney! Didn't she do a fabulous job? She has a fabulous site packed full of brilliant card ideas. You can find all the details about how she made this card on her blog, Courtney's Paper Crafting.


We have three blogs for you to visit and check out the pretties! 

What fun would this be without prizes?
 None, that's what -and we can't have that!

If you watched our unboxing video, you saw that we ordered a bunch of 6x6 paper packs to play with. We're looking for designs to start monthly kits, but we can't order just one paper pack at a time. We have at least 2 of every design! Want to get one mailed to you for free? 







All you have to do to enter is comment here and on each of our design team member's posts. We'll give away a pack each day of the sneak peeks so come back every day this week! Winners of all prizes will be announced on Monday, October 15th, so you have plenty of time to enter.

If you're international and win, we still want it to be fun! You'll have the option of paying for shipping or receiving a digital prize instead. (Tomorrow, you find out what the digital prize is!)

    1. Nebraska is wavering between bitter cold and a summer that doesn’t want to leave. I try to make the best of winter, but I always want spring to get back ASAP!
