WOW…it is here…FINALLY ~ the day that the new catalog goes live and I am sure that many of you are as excited as I am with it but we need to get down to Thursday business…a Pals Paper Art Challenge and this week we have a sketch to work with and this one is right up my alley, allowing my style and love of clean & simple to shine through!
Fellow PAL, Patti MacLeith provided us a super fun sketch that is in my mind, a keeper so if I were you….I would save this for future projects! I just love when you can add smaller stamps into an area – so clean and fun!
Here is a tip that will really, really help you! The white piece is 5″ X 3 3/4″…why” I like to make the vertical side an even number that I can easily divide (remember, I am Silly Susan) and trust me, it is easy to find 2 1/2″ and then use this as your start point to center the square. Then it is super easy to do the top and bottom!
I love the layering framelits. I admit, when they first came out I was not as excited because the old ones did the trick for me but I will now say that they are super easy to use and make frames, like I did below in the garden green ~ to me…it is a fun and easy finishing touch!
The DSP that I used today is a new kid on the block, Presents & Pinecones! It is fun and fresh and I have the colors listed below that coordinates with it. It is Cherry Cobbler, in the picture it looks rather like “coral” to me….This print is on the flip side of the little stars!
You know me…I could not resist…envelope love is one of my all time favorites and all it takes is just a couple of extra steps but it is WELL WORTH IT! I know that when I send a card to someone with a FUN envelope…they ALWAYS comment on it – it does make a difference. Look at it this way…
It is the little extra touches in life that make you smile…and a fun envelope makes me smile!
NOW TO THE CATALOG….WOOT – WOOT…
You can click right on it and start seeing and have fun! I will be back a bit later today with another post about the new catalog! I do hope that you POP over to the Pals Paper Site to see what the other super talented designers came up with! Talent galore!
See you in a bit with Post #2 for the day….have fun!
