The Wacky Watercooler August Blog Hop.

Welcome  to another Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop! Our Hop Runs in a circle so you can hop from anywhere on our loop and view all of the blogs. You may have hopped here from my  friend Marsha's blog.  I'm sure you enjoyed all of her projects.

My first project is a Dream Catcher.

Stamps: Four Feathers
Ink: Soft Suede & Pool Party
Paper: Pool Party & Sahara Sands CS
Misc: 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon, Twine, Pony Beads & Ring & Feather Framelits

Next is a Christmas Card using old and new stamp sets.

Stamps: Holiday Home, Lovely as a Tree & Good Greetings
Ink: Stazon, Island Indigo, Pool Party, So Saffron, Cajun Craze, Soft Suede, Smoky Slate, Mossy Meadow and Real Red
Paper: Whisper White, Mossy Meadow & Real Red CS & Watercolor Paper.
Misc: Aqua Painter & Dazzling Details

Almost 5 years ago I made a wedding card with a tuxedo heart and a craze began. It was fun the first few times I saw them with credit given to me. So many people have now made them and added twists of their own.
Stamps: Petite Pairs
Ink: Blackberry Bliss
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Blushing Bride, Blackberry Bliss & Mossy Meadow
Misc: Heart Collection Framelits, Sweetheart Punch, Zig Zag Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Rhinestone Jewels(colored with Stazon), Dimensionals & Envelope Punch Board(Corner rounding)

I hope you enjoyed my projects, now hop on over to Deborah's blog


  1. Great work! I'm excited to see the dreamcatcher, that was my first idea with the feathers, and I haven't gotten around to it yet.

  2. I like the dream catcher... what a good idea!!!

  3. Great projects! And I never knew you were the instigator of the heart tuxedo. Love the watercolour of the Holiday Home set.

  4. Thanks for starting the tuxedo heart craze, Kath! I'm one of the 'repeaters' - never knew your were the originator :) Love the sparkle on your Christmas trees - so pretty!

  5. I never thought of Lovely as a Tree with the Holiday Home--great idea! Love your card!

  6. Thanks so much, Kath, for continuing to be part of our Blog Hop. I LOVE the Dream Catcher! What a great idea, now that we have those feathers and matching framelits! This idea will be CASEd, I warn you. You've made a beautiful scene reminiscent of the Grandma Moses art---love the combination of Lovely as a Tree and Holiday Home. Great idea! I can see why the craze for that simple wedding card began, Kath. For such a simple card, it has a lot of impact---great design. I'll put this idea aside until I need another wedding card (with credit to you, of course). TFS

  7. Kath, such beautiful project. I love the little house set, but did not get it. The wedding card idea is spectacular.

  8. hi kath, what great projects! your christmas card is absolutely beautiful & i love the dream catcher. tfs ~ smiles, karen ;-)

  9. Great projects, Kath. Cool dream catcher. My favorite is the Holiday Home. I love how you combined it with Lovely As a Tree.

  10. Your creative take on each of these continues to be an inspiration, Kath! I'm pretty sure I have your original tuxedo heart creation pinned, and now I have three more ideas to pin & try - thanks for sharing your ideas so generously!

  11. Hi Kath. Wow you've been busy. The dreamcatcher is very lovely. What a great idea! The combination of old and new stamps for your wonderful christmas card is amazing. Everything goes and you've created quite the scene. A big thank you for the hearts card. I never knew who the originator was but have seen many versions, so take a bow, you started an awesome trend.

  12. The Christmas card is beautiful. Especially the sleigh going across the moon.

  13. These are all amazing projects, Kath! I love the dream catcher, and the Christmas card is absolutely gorgeous. The wedding card is very creative, too. As always - love them all!
