Yesterday was a great day. Megan came home from England!! We were waiting for her in Chicago with balloons. It's not everyday she comes home from Europe on her 21st birthday. She walked in the door and immediately grabbed her cat. I think she missed him more than me. Oh well. She's home and not going anywhere for a while.
Here's a new kind of card for you. I usually don't make my own patterned paper, but let's step out of that box. Everything is Rosy stamp set was perfect to make four different patterened paper. And of course, I had to use 4 different In-Colors that will be retiring.
Stamp the images on Whisper White and then adhere those strips to a piece of neutral paper. On the back, mark an inch on the short ends, on opposite sides. Cut between the hash marks and you now have pieces for two cards! I have a picture in the card recipe on how to cut the diagonal.
How awesome is it that you now have the main part done for two cards?! Great way to multi task.
Don't forget these colors will be retiring June 3rd. They will be replaced with 5 new In-Colors that we will soon fall in love with. I'm so very confident of that. I will miss Lemon Lime Twist the most.
Just the other day, I received my pre-order. I ordered some of the Magnolia Suite. With Megan coming home, I haven't had time to play yet, but I'm really anxious to get my hands this set. The paper alone is enough to drool over. Hopefully tomorrow night.
