This card layout I have called Floating Embelishments (from the Floating Flowers card I did a few years ago), because really you can 'float' any embellishment you want on the strips of window sheet that float between the cardstock.

Please contact me if you would like the PDF instructions (cost $3)

These are all the cards I made during my World Cardmaking Day - 12 hour Marathon.  A great day and night spent crafting with some great ladies.  Some did the 1/2 Marathon (6 hours), and others were able to commit to the full 12 hour Marathon.  We had lots of fun and made over 80 cards between us all.

Rip N Flip Technique

This fabulous technique was demonstrated at our Stampin' Up! Hawaii Incentive Trip.
The DSP that was used was English Garden and made a selection of very pretty cards.
So I took the idea and made it into collection of six different Christmas Cards.  I packaged them up with a cute belly band for a gift.  The full photos can be found on Pree Designs Pinterest or, under the "Ideas" heading, then under the Christmas 2015 label.

Butterfly & Bold Butterfly Thinlits Compliment each other

I designed this card to show off how beautifully both the Butterfly thinlits and the new Bold Butterfly thinlits compliment each other.
Both sets have a small and medium delicate cut out butterfly and an outline butterfly the same size, so the delicate cutout can sit perfectly over the top, or in this case, cut out the perfect shape to show off the delicate design.
The card from in also embossed using the Butterfly embossing folder.  I also coloured the Whisper White Stitched Satin ribbon using the Mint Macaron ink pad and a Dauber.
The greeting is from the Stake Your Claim stamp set and cut out using the Handpicked framelits.

Here are the products I used to create this card.  Simply click on any product to shop online.

Welcome 2015

Happy New Year !!! 

We welcomed in the new year with the launch of our Occasions and Sale-a-brations Catalogues.  These are both full of fabulous new products to Inspire you to create your own Cards, Scrapbook pages, Photo Books or Project Life pages.

This year I hope to learn how to make my blog more interactive with my Stampin' Up! website, Pintrest site and Facebook (I need some technical help to guide me thru the processes)

So for now here are some tempters to get you interested.  For more inspiration, please visit and click on Ideas to view all the projects I have created.  I also have a Pintrest site, google Pree Designs.

Here is the card I created for Marianne's friends to make at a party last night.
 I was then left with this as leftover from the beautiful Butterfly....  so set out to create something using this as a template........
Here is what I came up with.
Very happy with my creation...  I sponged the butterfly as the base on the card front.
