    More from the bits and pieces

    Believe it or not… Here is more cards from all those bits and pieces… However, I am getting down to the parts that do not want to go together.

No NO need for an intervention. I promise!! Similarly, did you notice the “ribbon stack” used for a background?? How?? VersaMark added to any color cardstock, picks up the color!

    Perennial Birthday Folder

    Here is the second project from Girls Night. Do you have a tough time keeping track of birthday?? I sure do. Yes, there are apps for that and yes there are calender’s for that … BUT.. This is just so much more FUN!! This PDF will be included with the Talented Tutorial Team bundle for all purchases made over $40. WoooHooo!! However, I will admit that the months are from a retired set. (yes, sadly, and I am sorry). In addition to the retired months, the “lined” paper is not cardstock. Wanting to be able to add to the backside. I love the front though. My favorites butterflies in Crumb…

    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…
