Holiday Mini Farewell

I have to say, I'm so sad to see the Holiday Mini expire. I feel like I only got to part of it and it's on it's way out already! I am excited though..... to see all the new things coming our way. :)

This month at Stampin'Up!, we are having a paper party baby! Buy three packages of Designer paper and get the the fourth for FREE. It's not too late to get in on this deal... better hurry though.

My customers know how much I love Designer Paper. LOVE that it's two sided. You are FOR SURE going to like one side... the only problem is, I usually love both and can't decide which to use most of the time! LOL.

This layout is based on a card I saw on by dpeterson (click on her username to see her awesbomb gallery!) who was inspired by another card by my very talented friend Val Stangle. Wow... look at the Stem Silhouettes gallery for this set. Don't miss out on your chance to get Stem Silhouettes... contact your demo today!

So.... I am hooked now on this layout. I wanted to show my customers how you can use the DS paper to quickly make very nice cards. Here is one with the set Season of Joy... another set from the mini you need to hurry and order if you don't want to miss out on!!

You can't see very well in the photo, but the real red piece is stamped with Versamark with the stamp that has all the words on it. A little Dazzling Diamonds and some paper piercing and you are done! That Dashing Designer paper is so much fun!! And, did you see I used River Rock? I am starting to warm up to that color. *big grin*

So, if you cut your designer paper 4x4 you can get nine cards out of one sheet of paper. How easy is that? This is the same layout, just turned on the side. This card uses yet another set that is leaving us from the Holiday Mini called Love & Joy. I got it because it will be nice to use for other occasions besides Christmas.
