peaceful pinecones

Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting in person two of the wonderful girls from the Papertrey Ink forum, Natasha and JiIlian.  Jillian started a thread on the forum about wanting to get together and make cards for those living in the Toronto area.  Natasha graciously offered her fabulous place (thanks Natasha!) so the date was set.  It must have been fate as I rarely (as in once-in-a-blue-moon rarely) go to the Off Topic section of the forum.  But as luck would have it, the day I visited that section was the day Jillian's post was on top of the list.

During our get together, Jillian made a card using the Peaceful Pinecone set. I am so in love with this set!  This is my favourite of the holiday sets released by Papertrey this year. I was inspired by her colour combination so I created this card as soon as I got home (I would have never put dark chocolate and pure poppy together for a Christmas card!). 

 And the set...

  Thanks for stopping by.  Come back tomorrow as we share the exciting things that happened during our first craft show. 


  1. well this is just beautiful!love the dark chocolate bitty dot - just perfect with the PP. i love that Peaceful Pinecones set - another one for the wishlist.

  2. Hi Irma :) it was SUCH a pleasure meeting you. I too am so glad we did it and hope we can get together again soon:)
    I did not have this set on my wish list at all but after seeing you and Jillian using it.... I want it! He,he!
    I love your card set, it's just gorgeous!

  3. The colours actually look very classy and rich together. Lovely Irma.

  4. Irma, I have to agree with you that I think Peaceful Pinecones is now my favorite. Didn't buy it, however, but it's moved up on my wish list because it can be used for other than holiday cards. Yours is simply stunning though!

  5. This is so lovely!! I really like that it doesn't have traditional xmas designs or colors on it. It makes it extra special and unique. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Love the colour combo and the simplicity of the pinecones with the polka dot border. Looking forward to hearing about the craft show!

  7. This is lovely, Irma!
    How fun that you got to get together with some PTI forum friends! I'm glad you had such a great time!

  8. What gorgeous cards. I love it and have been looking for some cards to inspire me with this set. Thanks for doing so.
