    Team Swaps – Inky Whisper I love Team Swaps – Inky Whisper Sister style. Here are my swaps from June. Our theme was your favorite DSP. That being said I kinda try and s-t-r-e-t-c-h the theme. Why because I know that not everyone has all the DSP. This was an attempt to maybe give a team member just a bit of this DSP to share if needed. This was fun way to share all the pretty patterns in the Simply Elegant DSP pack. None of the cards were the same. Well with the exception of the foil and twine. Yes, I know you have seen this layout before, I do…

They have several cards to make, I took down the list… Mooch – because he does not hiss at them. Penelope – because she smells so nice Mr. B because is really needs to like them. Logan because he is always nice and gives good pets. Cuddles because they were not big enough for Mother’s Day cards…

    From February’s Team Meeting – Make n Take

    From February’s Team Meeting This card from February’s Team meeting was inspired by the card in the middle. I do love butterflies, shocker. However, that middle card is from a bazillion years ago. Okay, maybe not but close, really!! All of that product is sadly retired. Here is a question for you, do you keep cards to “C.A.S.E.” at a later date? I be you are wondering what CASE means, Copy And Selectively Edit. This fold was fun to figure out the first time. The second time was a piece of cake. No, it did not matter that it had been a bazillion years. It was all about the measurements…

Just to help you out… You will want to just two slots each time. TIP: The two stamps that I used here are smaller. Meaning, that using a full sized ink pad gets kinda messy. You may just want to…
