Marvelous Marlene Monday

Hi, everyone!  Happy Monday!  Hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July weekend!  I have some fabulous projects to share with you today from my amazingly talented friend Marlene Caravello.  We recently swapped projects using products from the new catalog.  It's so much fun to open a box of goodies from Marlene -- literally like Christmas in July (or June! ;)  ).

Here's a gorgeous goodie bag Marlene created using the Treat Bag Thinlets:

She created a cute topper and tag as well:

Marlene made this beautiful goodie box with the new Gift Box Punch Board, English Garden Designer Series Paper, and Mint Macaron Dotted Lace Trim:

Don't you love the rich colors and bargello pattern Marlene created on this card using the new Bohemian Designer Series Paper?

Here's the inside, decorated perfectly using stamps from the Tin of Cards stamp set, and embossed on the left side with the new Boho Chic folder:

Marlene also used the Envelope Liners Framelits to jazz up the envelope for this card:

This card, Marlene CASED from Lana S. Horton (Marlene found Lana's card on Stampin' Connection, but I also discovered this blog post about it on Lana's blog here).  What a clever way to show off all the new In Colors on one card!

The bows were created with the Bow Builder punch, and the "birthday wishes" greeting is from
the Build a Birthday stamp set.

Speaking of the Build a Birthday set, here is a fun center stair step card Marlene created with that:

I think this is also a fun way to showcase the new In Colors, don't you?

And, here's the inside of the card:

And, a close up that also shows off the perfectly coordinating envelope Marlene created using the new In Color Envelope Paper (Mint Macaron, in this case) and the Envelope Punch Board:

Marlene also made a coordinating envelope with the In Color Envelope Paper (this time Watermelon Wonder) and Envelope Punch Board for this next card:

This is a corner flip card, using the You Got This stamp set, and was inspired by this card by Dawn Olchefske:

Marlene's card pairs Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Taupe card stock (with some Very Vanilla as well).  The beautiful lace is the Sahara Sand 7/8" Lace Trim.

Here's the inside of Marlene's card (beautifully finished, of course!):

Thanks again Marlene for sending these beauties to me!

And, thank you for visiting my blog!
