I know you’ve heard it before. It seems to be almost a norm in our society. Marriages come and go. Divorce is common place and we accept it. I used to feel that if you were once in love you can work hard to get that feeling back again. But in this case I’m done! I’VE HAD IT! I went looking for a new love and I found it! Stampin’ Up! LOVE that is….
What?! you thought I would throw away the last 28years of training I have done with Chuck….Nah he’s totally a keeper!
Every year we say goodbye to some old and HELLLLL-OH! to some NEW Stampin' "Stuff"! This is my new favorite paper that I have been playing with. It’s called Floral District Designers Series Paper! Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!
Don’t you love those yummy colors. Mmmmm! It even helps that it matches my favorite double walled cappuccino mug. How Conveeeenient! The Coffee looks and tastes even better after it sits on this beautiful coaster I made!
This paper was part of my preorder from the new Catalog which will go live on June 1st. I sent a copy to many of you but if you didn’t receive one yet email me and we will talk about getting one coming your way, right away.
I even added a stamped image with some fun distressing in the middle of the coaster as a focal point. But they are cute even without. So much fun! These coasters are so inexpensive but how darling to give a set of 4 of these to all those friends who have you over for summer BBQ’s! The tiles were .13¢ each at the local home improvement store and I can get nine 4 x 4 pieces of Designer series paper out of one 12 x 12 sheet of paper. Takes only a few minutes to complete. Lay down a thin coat of decoupage medium to adhere the paper then when dry brush on a thin layer of Crystal Effects with a foam brush. Voila’ you are done! (well after it drys, which only takes about 30 minutes) Tie 4 coordinating tiles together with some beautiful ribbon and everyone will be inviting you to their house for a picnic this summer!
