I just love number 4! Unique fold and awesome design!

Katie b from Florida

I love #7. You showed how to use a gorgeous pack of DSP efficiently and quickly to make beautiful cards. I also like #5 the cupcake, I had been resisting this stamp set because of the 3 stamps but it is on the list for my next order. Thanks for the recap (now I have a page to access all the projects of the month quickly) and all the inspiration,

Marjorie from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

I like them all, but #7 has to be my favourite. I love this recap and hope you make it a monthly feature.


The 7 is my favorite idea,

Mary Ann Ely

Good morning Patty,,,,, I can't pick a favorite. They are all gorgeous but I LOVE how you showed us on car #7 on how to use the DSP and make gorgeous cards because I would have never though of that. Thanks for sharing all your beautiful cards and I'm hopeing you do this every month.Have a great day.

Nancy Peters

So many great cards to choose from! TFS!! My favorite though, is the serene scenes notecards. I hope to host a class with these. Again, thank you!

carol U

Good morning Patty, My favorites would be 6 & 7. I looked over the little tiny treat boxes in the catalog. They will be on my list from now on for Christmas boxes, and # 7 is just over the hill for fantastic!!!
I look forward everyday to checking out your blog. Have a great day. :)

Ingrid Lyons

#9 is my favorite. I love your blog and ideas. Your are the best!

Jane Elliott

You always come up with such great projects but I especially like #4 the gatefold card. I like to switch it up from the standard card fold!

Debbie Wicklund

17 is my favorite. I love the jar & calming colors.


I love #13, but the link seems connected to #12. Not sure if it's my computer.

Cynthia G

Oh my I really love them all but if I have to vote I love what you did with #7. You really used all of the paper stack and I just love how they turned out. I will be making some just like them. Of course all of the projects you share are wonderful.

Sherry in MI

Can't pick just one, Patty! How about #3, #8, #17 and #18! They are all just lovely. Love Swirly Bird and can't wait for my Jar of Love to arrive this week. Thanks for sharing.

Mary Rodgers

#10, the Bunch of Blossoms Brick wall card was my favorite.....although I do enjoy seeing your projects each day!
Thanks for sharing your talents.

Angie Brewer

Number 7, I do agree with everyone is gorgeous, but my absolute favorite is number 10. There is just something about that brick wall that has my heart. Love them all and I so enjoy all of your ideas and videos. Keep the ideas coming. I need all the help I can get.


I like them all, if I have to pick I would probably pick 7, or 17. Love to see your cards and videos.

Ronda McJimsey - Gibson

I like all of your cards and ideas very much. Having to choose though, I'd pick #7.
I want to thank you for being so generous in sharing. I have used your card designs in my card clubs in the past and plan on using the card you did recently with the Everyday Jars set in my August Card club. Love your work :) Again, thank you!

Cindy Henry

Of course all your choices are FABULOUS, but I really liked the Serene Scenes DSP notecards you made!! So beautiful, yet so simple and quick to put together. I wasn't going to buy the DSP, but I put it on my next order list as soon as I saw your cards. I think it would be a great project for Stamp Club w/the Note Card Wallet *Ü*

Kathy Messer

Oooh, this was hard! But I love 4 and 17!

Kathy S.

#9 followed closely by #13! I love them all however and enjoy all your blog and Instagram posts and videos!

Saundra Huston

Number 7 was by fare my favorite. Love the video tutorial. The second big plus was being able to use everything in the paper stack.


Hi Patty, it's difficult to choose because I love all your cards... But I have a small preference for #1 and #7... Thank you so much for all your videos...I'm a French Stampin'up demonstrator and you are an inspiration for me!!!


13 or 18; love them both....

Love all the card designs so narrowing down to two was difficult.

Thanks for all of your ideas and suggestions!!!!

Beth K. Mills

Love lots of these, but... My favorite(s) are 7, 10 and 17. What an equation!
Thanks for sharing your beautiful creations!

Carla Schechner

While #7 offers lots of choices using the background papers, I like the wide versatility offered in #18!! Just think of all the colorations you can achieve starting with just 1 paper--1 color; rainbow tones, sherbet effects, etc etc. And then pair that with the coordinating die cuts!!!! Wonderful ideas Patty :0)


My favorite is #10! Thanks for sharing.

Micheline Lueken

I love the Swirly Bird bundle so my vote would be #12. So fun!

C. McKinnon

Love them all but especially #11. Hydrangeas are so pretty.

Stacy Forbes

#10 for sure. Going to case that one if you don't mind. LOVE IT!

Barbara Green

# 10 was my very favorite card for the whole month of July. Thank you for sharing.


Number 11 . And 17. Love the Thoughtful Branches set.and the jars. Will try to CASE both for sure.


Love them all. I would say my favorite is 17 and next is 10. Thank you for giving such complete details.


My favorite was number 18. I am in love with the paper that you can make any color you want and those framelits.

Susan mack

Floral phrases is my favorite. Had to have that set

Martha Henry         Oak Hills, California


All the post you share, are my favorite. It's so difficult to have to pick one. I truly love that you take the time to share all of your creative ideas with us. I do appreciate the dedication you provide. Thank you, and you are extremely appreciative to us all. I love giving you my business because I know you deserve it. Now, to answer your question I have come to enjoy making a ton of cards lately. But I truly enjoy learning the unique card folds. I feel like they personalize a card even more. I really found that when you introduced #13 the Z fold card to me, I had to try it. It's simple quick and unique. I really enjoyed this card, Thank you for introducing it to me and sharing the step by step method to making this card and all your cards.

Terri B

My fav is #14. The blue stamped on the colored cardstock is nicely unexpected. I like the way the focus is on the embossed image, which is not overwhelming to the rest of the card and not overdone.


I can't possibly pick a favorite, but I'll give you a top three...even that was difficult. I'd have to say 11, 12 and 18.

Cindy Otto

I love number 3. I can't get enough of Swirly Bird and according to Sara Douglas, it is SU's ,ost popular set! Thanks for all the inspiration!

Dianna Knapp

Number 13 is my all time favorite. Stunning! However I really like 7 & 10 also
I'm sooooo ready to get some stamp time! We've had a house guest for 2 months and he is staying in my stamp room .......... Well its supposed to be a Guest Room but I've taken over much of it with my stamping station and supplies. :)

Cheri Domago

no 3 love the swirly die and stamp set.

Nancy S.

They are all wonderful but my absolute favorite is 13. I would have to say 3 and 9 are tied for second. Thanks for sharing with us.

Rita Y

I love 9, 12, and 17,

Paige Grabau

It's so hard to choose just one as you do such beautiful work and inspiring projects. But I thought #7 was a genius idea!

Kathy Bolam

Hi Patty, it's between #13 and #17 but your designs are all fantastic!!

Rose Thygesen

Hard to choose but loved the Serene Scenery note cards. Such a wonderful way to use the paper stack.

Sherry Clark

Tough choices but I really loved the special effects of the 3D stamped frosting technique.

Marjie Browning

Patty - I love everything but my favorites #1 is your Number 7 with the Serene Scenery notes and #10 with the Bunches of Blossoms and brick wall. You do such fabulous work, we are so lucky to have you.

Debbie Magann

My favorite were 4, 5, & 13. I always enjoy seeing you ideas. Thanks for sharing.

Brenda Tucker

I really like #13, the blue dsp, is so beautiful! I always get so many good ideas from you. Thanks so much


#7 is my first choice, #1 is my second choice and #9 is my 3rd choice....for favorites. Love all your creations! TFS


I like #9' I'm in love with that set, paper p, and embossing folder.

Jenny R.

Lucky Number 7 is my favorite! AlthoughI really like all the ideas you post! Thanks for sharing.


#7 if just picking one great idea with awesome DSP. Thank you for all of your posts

Judy Ford

I actually have two favorites - 7. Serene Scenery note cards and 13. Floral Phrases Z-fold card. The first gave me ideas for using the Serene Scenery DSP and I love creative fold cards; I use them all the time. Thank you, Patty, for all of your wonderful card inspirations.

Doris D.

They were all great, love your morning posts. I do like # 12. Can't wait to get my Swirly Birds set to make the cute sailboat.

Debbie Coleby

#3 then #7 are my favs

Laura H

#10 and #17, I just couldn't pick one! You are so very talented! Thank you for sharing your creations!

Bridget Constant


Vicki Riester

Thanks for sharing all your beautiful creations, Patty. #10 speaks to me, beauty blooming from a brick wall! Love it.

Sarah Biswabic

I like #10 the brick wall card.

Randee S

It is hard to pick just one because I love so many of them. I guess #9 would be my first choice. TFS

patti moffett

#8 I like the color combination

Darlene K

I love all of your ideas but I am thoroughly loving the #3 with the swirly bird stamps and thinlits. They are my favorite from the new catalog (so far)!!

Michele Uke

Thank you for the project monthly recap. I had a hard time choosing, but number 7 and 10 are my favorites. I really appreciate the DSP video. I'll have to buy the background stamp so I can try the brick wall. It is unique and lovely.

Cathy Zaramba

I love them all but 7 is definitely my favorite.

Debbie from Indiana

I saved quite a few of your videos but # 7 was my favorite! I fell so deeply in love with the simplicity and style. I also felt incredibly stupid because I could not see beyond the box I had assigned to each item. so simple. Thank you for bringing me outside of the box.

Sylvia De Jong-Simpson

My favorite card was #10 with the Brick Wall TIEF and the Watercolor background stamp, giving the brick wall a weathered look. It inspired me to order those two items, which I did not have. Excited to make a card with them! All of your posts are inspiring! Thank you for sharing!

Michelle Gray

Hi Patty, Like many others said, it's a very difficult choice. I love the card in 10 because you took inspiration from Pinterest, made it your own and ended up with a much nicer end result. I also like the actual post and card in 11 because you explained how the opening in the card front was done (SU! didnt when they showed a similar design in a video). But I love nearly all of the cards as much. (You know I'm not into cute.) BTW, really appreciate your video re: the Scenic DSP cards. I ordered the note card packs (already had the DSP) so I could make those card.
Interested to see what you end up doing with the info you gather.

Stacie Bianchi

I love them all but would have to say number 17 first then 4 then 13. Your cards are amazing as well as your videos. Thanks for taking the time to share with the rest of us.

Linda K

Oh me, oh my, Patty, what a task to pick 1 favourite out of so many!!! Well I deliberated, cogitated and disciplined myself and I've done it. It took me a full day but I settled on number 17 - Thoughtful Branches / Jar of Love. Beautiful, beautiful card Patty. Thank you for all your inspiration. Take good care.

R Hill

My absolute favorite without a doubt is #10. So clever to use the background stamp with the embossing folder. Just gorgeous! My 2nd favorite is #17. Anything with a jar! Thank you so much for your great posts and idea sharing.

Cheryl Spears

I love #10!


I love 12! oh, 17 is my, it's 14. 7, yes, 7 would be my favorite!
all of them are lovely, Patty!
Thank you for sharing your lovely creations.

They are all so nice it is hard to make a choice. I like the Z Fold idea so I am picking #13!

Lin Hense

Love them all but #7 would be my favorite followed by 2 and 17 tied. I love seeing them all together and hope you do this each month.


I was going to say 13 because I love that die set, but I love #9 too.


hard to pick but i got it down to four, numbers 1,4,6,17. thanks for sharing

Marilyn Budovec

Boy that is a hard choice! Think I like #1 because of the way it pops out at you. Colors are very vibrant. Thanks for all the samples and how quick you attend to your customers needs. ☺️
