DSP gift bag

Today I'm showing you another way on how to use up designer series paper... use 2 sheets to make a bag!

On this one I didn't keep the top open and didn't add handles... but you could! I stapled it shut because there is actually a gift in there for my husband .... I had to be sneaky as today is our 25th wedding anniversary and we're celebrating at the beach...

I will try and make a little video next week gor you guys so you can use up dome of your papers too

Share what you love Bundle

Today I am going to share a card that I finally finished yesterday after I had the supplies ahem... 2 weeks. My upline Dena held an online meeting and showed us a card for which she had sent us supplies so we could make it after the meeting. You can see her original card here!

I decided to change mine up a little bit just to show that you can always make things your own even with pre-selected supplies... I only added one extra layer of Very Vanilla cardstock:

This bundle is gorgeous! If you haven't checked it out yet, you can see the details here!

Paper Pumpkin and Boating

Yesterday we took our boat out for the first time after a very long time, and just wanted to do a little test ride. But of course I didn't just want to sit out there and do nothing... what fun would that be? So I brought the latest paper pumpkin kit along, which coincidentally is a nautical theme.

Here are the pictures that I took of the cards

So you can see ... you can take Paper Pumpkin anywhere and make the cute

Lovely Floral

Today I have a really quick card to share with you guys

I used the dynamic textured impressions embossing folder called Lovely Floral which will be in the new catalog... then I used some sponge daubers and added inks in some of our new in-colors over the raised image... nothing popped up... can you believe it? LOL!

Special Fold Card

The other day a stamp club member asked me about Graduation cards so I showed some from the past and came across a special fold card. Then another stamp club member wanted to know how it was made... So I pulled up my old instructions and made a new version. Please be sure to scroll down for link to instructions and the how to video...

Here is my new card:
