Botanical Garden...Because you're Awesome

2016 01 08 07.32.18 1

The Botanical Gardens Bundle is one of my favorites in the catalog!. I made this card for a card swap. I love all the layers and dimensions it offers.

Perfectly Artisitic Sky is the Limit

2016 01 08 07.33.01 1

This is such a wonderful stamp set! It can be used for graduations, commendation, encouragement! Now that I discovered how much fun it is to stamp on the beautiful designer series papers, The Sky is the Limit! Get it before it is gone on February 15, 2016!

Soft Sky Rose Wonder Extravegant

2016 01 29 20.40.20 1

This beautiful card was inspired by Jenny Moore of the UK. The layering of color cardstock under the Rose Garden dies really makes it pop. The Clear Wink of Stella brushed all over the flowers and leaves makes it look so elegant. The Thank you and label are also part of the set! Love this set! It is a must have!

Cutting Cardstock

Here is a chart that every Paper crafter needs! 

 All the sizes for cutting CARDSTOCK!! 
Tuck this away in a save place.  Print it out and post it near your crafting area!
Keep this!

Take your 8 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock and cut in 1/2 at 5 1/2" on the 11" side for a standard card.

Take your 8 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock and cut it in 1/2 at the 4-1/4" on the 8-1/2" side for a long card.

Then use the chart above to make the layers you want!
