If you love pretty paper and want a fantastic variety of scrapbook and card-friendly designs, I highly recommend Stampin’ Up! Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper. You get 48 – 12 x 12 double sided sheets (4 each of 12 designs) of paper crafting heaven.
WHAT I LOVE ! Fresh Freesia is here to stay and looks crisp and cool with Basic Black on today’s card. Learn more about the new and returning Stampin’ Up! Colors here. The sentiment (Something Fancy Stamp Set) is framed with stitched circles from the Stampin’ Up! Stylish Shapes Die Collection – a must have for your card making essentials!
NEED SKETCH INSPIRATION? The layout of today’s thank you card was inspired by the newest addition to my Stampin’ Pretty Sketchbook, Sketch #66, which I shared on Tuesday!
