    Sail Away with Well Said

    I am sure this has never happened to anyone else, but me… haha. Did you plan to use something, but then things change. This card has a new life as a masculine birthday card. What do you think?? Curious, where all the parts come from?? The two DSP (Designer Series Papers) are from the Come Sail Away DSP (149481), meaning the lighthouse pattern and the stripe. Both of the sentiments are from the Well Said stamp set (148796). However, did you know that that stamp set has 51 different stamps?? ALL the sentiments you would need in one year! Holy Cow!

    What DSP would you pick?? Do you have a favorite?? We have a saying if you love it, then CHOP IT. I have paper from years ago that I did not want to cut up.

At stamp camp the girls were asked to pick two sheets from their favorite paper pack and then, YUP!! Cut it up and use it. Here is how the cuts worked. Here is what we were able to come up with.. Making only 5 cards you will have plenty of left overs…

    Ohh one last swap

    Dang, here is the other organized swap that happened at OnStage last week. How I forgot I have not clue… This swap focused on DSP (designer series paper). The DSP used here is a favorite for me!! Share What you Love (146926) which will no longer be available come June. All DSP retires at the end of each annual catalog. The same patterns, for each card…. with just a different sentiment. The sentiment and die cuts come from the Well Said bundle (150609). As you know, with a bundle you can save 10% AND this bundle price goes away in June too. With this being Easter weekend, I want to…
