Stampin' Dreams - "Step It Up" with Peaceful Cabin

 

Today I'm participating in the Stampin Dreams Blog Hop.  The theme is "Step It Up".  I decided to show 3 cards, each targeted towards a different audience - Beginner, Casual and Avid Crafters.  For each card, I've "stepped up" the card and added some additional details and products.  Whichever card you choose to make will be beautiful with the Stampin' Up!® Peaceful Cabin Product Suite.

Here's the 3 cards I created!  If you've been following my blog posts over the past week or so, you'll know that I absolutely love this product suite.
