Happy Thursday! It is a Pals Paper Art day and this week we are working with a fun sketch from fellow Pal Dawn Tidd. This is a super easy sketch yet fun sketch to work with so I encourage you to give it a try! I know….I know…. many of you are reluctant to post your work and “I get it” but how about trying it at home? I find that when I work from a challenge…it helps develop a style!

You all really do not need me today as this is super straight forward! I adore all of the papers in this paper stack…a true keeper and I just love the plaids that are in there! (I am a polka dot and plaid kinda girl) so this stack found its way to Randall Lane real quick!

Here is a great tip – when you have super yummy papers like this….USE THEM as your focal…it is a HUGE time saver and the end result will be a smile for not only YOU but for the lucky recipient! Remember that TIME THING we all have….just do it!

We all know that it is a mystery as what is carried over to the next catalog etc….but I truly hope that this Kraft Rope Trim is. I have used it for cards, for packaging, for tags – it is great as it is super easy to use.

Below you will see that I just did a simple knot on the ends and then took my piercing tool to pull the fibers of the treads to make it fun and festive!

Let’s have a chat about the sentiment! This came from the carried over stamp set called Snow Place! This set came out last year and YES, it does have matching framelits (a time saver) but today I just wanted the sentiment (I love the clean and classic font).

I did heat emboss it and the 2 best things that you can do when heat embossing is….to heat up your heat tool for about 30 seconds to get it good nad hot and then also to use a Embossing Buddy to remove any static etc…before you stamp with the versamark!

WASHI TAPE FUN!!! 🙂  I love when I use it and then hear back from you all….that was a great idea!!!! Yep, again…you have it – so USE IT! Adding a piece to the bottom of the envelope is a perfect and super quick touch!
