Creative Cards book…


Do you love having an idea book to look at while you’re having breakfast, coffee time or lunch? I do! *grin* Well, have you heard of Scrapbook and Cards Today’s NEW Creative Cards Volume One?

I have two cards in it! I’m so excited to share with you and I have one copy of the book to give away to a lucky winner in the USA that comments on this post! I’ll leave it open for a few days. The book is also available for purchase HERE.  There are a few other TE designers in the book this time, including Taylor!

The two cards in the book are from a set of four Christmas cards I made with non-traditional colors.




Here’s a peek at the two in the book…








I’m also sharing the two cards that didn’t get published and linking below to the supplies in the TE store.  It was so fun to use extraordinary colors…although, I love red, green, kraft and white!!!  : )


Pam Sparks TE Snowlfakes


I LOVE the Distress ink color Shaded Lilacs…here I combined it with Tumbled Glass, both colors on the embossing folder before I ran it through the Big Shot.


Pam Sparks TE 3 circles die


Some of the Little Bits dies…so cute!

Stop by the TE Blog because it’s release week!

Thanks for stopping by again today!  I’ll be back release day with three more cards from Taylored Expressions…

Supplies I used on the cards I’m sharing today…

  1. Really enjoyed all four of these cards. You come up with clever new ideas constantly.
    Always enjoy that you show us new items but then bring out old one to enjoy too.

  2. Congratulations, Pam!! Having your work published is so exciting! Your snowy Christmas Cheer card is the prettiest Christmas card I’ve seen so far! I do love looking at ideas in card making magazines. Sadly, it is getting much harder to find them now. ♡

  3. You are SO TALENTED!! If I owned a magazine, I’d publish every card you created!! You are a HUGE inspiration to me … I can’t wait to give a couple of these a try.

  4. Love the cards. Pick my name for the book !!! I know it is computer generated but can’t you “fix” it !!!! congrats on having 2 cards published.

  5. Well look at you!!! Congratulations!! That is awesome!! And the cards that are in the book, and the ones that aren’t are all amazing!!

  6. Congrats Pam, no surprise that you were published but they should have published all four! You are always an inspiration to me and I get a lot of ideas from your cards. LUV your work Pam!

  7. Always love getting your e-mails. I love the card From Our House to Yours. Congratulations on have your cards published in the Creative Cards Book! Love all your cards.

  8. Congratulations! I always love getting your e-mails. I love the card From Our House to Yours. It is great that the Creative Cards Book features two of your lovely Christmas Cards.

  9. How awesome for you to have not just one card but two featured in the book! I love looking at scrapbook pages and cards any time of the day so put me in for a chance for the book!

  10. You make such awesome cards! Congrats on having 2 cards published. The non published cards are great too. I always look forward to getting your posts.

  11. Wow…Pam that is so cool to have your cards in SCT. And what beautiful cards too! Those are really neat colors too. Way to go Girl. WaHoo!!! So very nicely done! Thanks for sharing!

  12. Congratulations on getting into the SCT book! I liked both of the blue cards you made which were selected. The two that didn’t get into the book are also great. I especially like the second one because of the color combination. It must take you a long time to make one card.

  13. You deserve a book of your own! Everything I’ve seen you create ought to be in a “breakfast book” of its very own for me to dream on…really!

  14. Congrats Pam!!!! I’m NOT surprised that they published two of your cards!! They are always so cute! I love the cards that did not get published….they are gorgeous! 🙂 Nancee

  15. Oh those are all so pretty! But the last two are my faves. Love the snow flakes in the window and really love the lilac and green card. Just beautiful! Congrats on being published!

  16. Congrats on being published….twice!!! How fun is that. I love the cards you created that did and didn’t get included in the book….the soft blue one with the lime green is so cheerful and appealing. While, like you, I think traditional colors are wonderful, it’s so much fun to think outside the traditional box and make something unexpected. Thanks for the inspiration today….

  17. Woo hoo! Congratulations to you, my friend! Your cards would ALL get published if you would submit them! Beautifully done, as always – loving the lime green for the holidays! Got back from Germany about midnight last night – hope to get back here on a more regular basis now!!! Hugs…

  18. Oh I love looking through these books, just get the creative juices flowing! Congrats on the cards that were published and two cute ones that didn’t, like the design on the circle one, great for those small stamps and dies!

  19. Congrats Pam! How exciting to have your amazing and beautiful cards in Creative Cards Magazine; but, then all of your cards are magazine quality. Going back to your very first blog card, your creative artistic style is what captured my attention. Especially the layout, colors, and die cut scenes. I look so forward to each card you share with all of us fans. Thank you Pam, for your generous offer for a chance to win a copy of Creative Cards Magazine featuring your beautiful cards.

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
