Believe it or not, this is MORE free paper! I am feeling super thrifty these days! The Peaceful Prints paper pack is one of the 12x12 choices you can earn with any $50 order during Stampin' Up's Sale-A-Bration this month and next. It's the perfect time to order some basics and treat yourself to paper patterns you will love!
I used the Garden Green and black and white plaid patterned tree paper along with black and Granite Gray mats and gold foil accents, and it turned out stunning! I was amazed at how the papers, which feel a little bit country, turned into something really elegant when it all came together. The snowflakes are all from the AMAZING So Many Snowflakes die set, which has all the snowflake sizes you could ever want, and goes with all your holiday stamp sets.
Once again a stamp set (Inspired Thoughts) provided the perfect headline and accents for a layout. I love using my stamps in scrapbooking! It's kind of funny how that doesn't occur to some people. Pages are just a slightly larger canvas than a card base, after all. Are you a scrapper-only? Or strictly a cardmaker? If you've got the stuff to do one, you've got everything you need to do the other. Give it a try!
I can't believe how close we are to the finish line--whoo hoo! And if you're a cardmaker waiting impatiently for a return to my regular programming--sit tight! We'll start September 1st with Christmas cards and the very first project made in my brand new studio. I can't wait!
See you back here tomorrow for Day 28!
