Just a Little Note

Just a Little Note

When I first started card making I wasn’t sold on Patterned Paper.  I thought it was a waste of money and space, plus I could achieve the same look and “wow” with just stamps and ink. That was until I attended my first Stampin’ Up! Convention, where we created a make ‘n’ take project featuring Patterned Paper.  It wasn’t hard at all, in fact it turned my card from “meh’ to “wow, that was easy”.  I’ve never looked back and find myself now hoarding patterned paper instead of using it.

With Sale-a-bration coming to an end I thought I would share a project with you today, featuring the Botanical Butterfly DSP that you can earn free with a $90 purchase before 31 March 2019.
