Sweet Summer Trio and a Safety Tip

Sweetsummertrio This was one of the make & take projects in my workshops in February.  We are practicing our watercoloring skills on this one. :-)  I made the card using three colors and the gals could choose which one they made.

The card is basic layering and I love that I can use my Patterns Designer Series Paper Stacks in the workshops.  The patterns are the same on all colors in the stack and you get 40 12x12 sheets for only $19.95. 

Speaking of Designer Series Papers, I am looking for a couple of people to do a Paper Share with my local gals.  You will get 217 6x6 sheets of all the Designer Series Paper we currently offer including the patterns used on these cards and the papers in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  The cost with mailing is $49.95, that is less than .25 cents per sheet, what a bargain!!!  Email me if you are interested.

Sweetsummer We used two sets from the Sale-a-bration brochure, Sweet Summer and So Happy For You.  You can choose either of these sets with a $50 purchase through March 31st.  The colors are Marina Mist, Rich Razzleberry and Wild Wasabi.  We used the Crop-a-dile to put a tiny snip in the folded edge so we could wrap our ribbon around Sohappyforyou and through the inside of the card.  We had a good laugh at all the parties as I explained how if you aren't careful, with this tool you can put a squeeze on more than your paper and yes you had to be there!!!  Let's just say that you need to be aware of where the ends of the handles are before you squeeze it, that is your safety tip of the day.
