Today - I'm going to focus on a beautiful set of Designer Series Paper that we will be losing when the new catalog starts June 4. Petal Promenade on page 190 of our Annual catalog has been one of my favorits this catalog - and well used by me. Below are a few of the projects I've made with it. First I am showing a center pop up card - this is made with a strip of designer series paper folded and decorated. You can get two our of 1 piece of 12x12" DSP.
We made these in our Technique club - and they turned out beautifully using the coordinating Beautiful Promenade stamp set on page107 of the catalog -that fortunately is not being retired.
Here's a side view so you can see how the card looks when closed up.
I also made this traveling stamp kit filled with adhesives, etc., for my sister-in-law for her birthday. I lined one of our full size wide stamp cases with the paper, then decorated with her personalized label.
On the back I cut a strip of the ruler from the edge of our Paper Pumpkin crafting sheets, and attached it, so she can measure as she travels and crafts.
I have also been making these explosion boxes for my hostesses. The flower on top is made using the Blossom Builder punch from page 211 of our current catalog - and this punch is being retired with the new catalog June 4.
Then I decorated the rest of the box with the same paper -
and inside is a gift for them - a pretty matching candle.
Finally - here is another hostess gift I have made - it is a post-it note holder and pen to put on your desk or near your phone. This one uses the same DSP for the base.
It is a 5x7" acrylic frame - decorated and laying on it's side - so pretty.
Hope you enjoyed these projects and I encourage you to take another look at some of our current products that will soon be gone. ~Maureen
