Using your Pattern Paper!

I recently started a new project - using up my Designer Series Papers (DSP) and boy do I have a lot of them!!  They are beautiful and I am always too busy thinking of ways to use them and then never do.  Sound familiar.  While you may or may not have DSP I am sure you have pattern paper that you purchased because it is just gorgeous - right?

So this post if for you.  CHOP IT UP!!!  I have found that if I cut my pattern papers down to fit a standard card front (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) then I can use it for almost anything on a card.  I do some 3D projects so I usually only cut half down and leave half for projects that take bigger sizes of paper.  These cards were made with the Picture Perfect Birthday 6 x 6 DSP paper from the recent Stampin Up Occasions Catalog that is now retired.  It may or may not appear again in the Clearance rack but I haven't seen it there yet.

For 6 x 6 papers I cut them into 3 pieces:

2  3 x 5 pieces

1  1 x 6 piece

A few of the sheets I cut into card fronts (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) which left me with a 1/34 x 5 1/2 piece and a 1/2 x 6 piece.  Those smaller pieces I have seen used in mosaic type cards where you put all your small scraps together.  Hopefully I will get time to make a sample in the near future!

I used Stampin Up and non-Stampin up supples for these cards. It doesn't matter what you use as long as you use up those supplies and don't leave them laying around!!! Plus this is a great way to use up all those scraps you have in a drawer or container some where!!!

You can make your cards a simple or as complex as you like.  This one took me less than 5 minutes to make!  The black ribbon wat left over from Halloween!!!

Now is a great time to pick up ribbon and embellishments from the Clearance Rack but it is clearing out fast!  You might want to head over to the store and take a look.  Click on the SHOP NOW or the Clearance Rack pictures on the right of this post!

Happy Stamping!

Everyone needs HUGS!!!


What a fun card this was to make! The Lovey Inside & Out stamp set is one I passed by for a long time but then I saw the potential for those big bold sentiments.... This stamp set is in the Annual Catalog which will be ending May 31st!

Color REVAMP!!!


Stampin Up has revamped the colors!!  There are 15 BRAND NEW colors!

There are 13 RETIRING Colors and the 5 2016-2018 Retiring InColors.

They have brought back some old retired colors and have reorganized the color collections!!!

I know you are thinking OMG - this is going to be expensive -  I know because I said the same thing....  I am still trying to make sense of it all.  

IF I have enough interest, I could do a COLOR SHARE.....

A COLOR SHARE is where I package up products and instead of you paying for an entire package of something, you get half or a fourth of the package instead to keep the cost down.....

I will only do this if I get interest in it...  Please send me an email and let me know you are interested and what products you are interested in:

Cardstock (letter size) - InColors & New Colors

Cardstock (12 x 12) - InColors & New Colors

Stampin Write Markers - InColors & New Colors

Stampin Blends (not available until late May early June) - InColors & New Colors

InColor Ink Pads & Reinkers

New Color Ink Pads & Reinkers

PLEASE be specific in your emails!!


Happy Stamping!
