SF-2022 August Blog Hop - All About the Paper!

Be sure to hop through all the blogs on the list near the bottom for tons of wonderful inspiration as we create projects that are all about the paper!

This month our projects are focusing on the amazing papers Stampin' Up! has to offer you - I wanted to make something fun - that featured a few DSP paper designs - so look at this cute set -

I love the new Texture Chic DSP - it is beautiful colors and patterns and splashes of gold.  
Texture Chic DSP #158808  $15.00*
So I decided to showcase it by using the patterns in fun ways.  The card is made of 1 1/4" squares places in a fun diagonal pattern.

Then added a great sentiment, gilded and gemmed dragonfly - and even a few squares to my envelope. 

Then for my 3D project I started with a cute little notebook from the Dollar store (they come in a pack of three).

I wrapped a piece of Vanilla cardstock on the front, top and down a 1/4" on the back - using extra sticky Tear and Tape to hold it.

Then finished decorating the front with similar layers and 1" x 2 3/4" strip of the Designer Series paper and added my initial inside a diamond shape, using the Alphabest Stamp Set.  
Alphabest Set #158884 $22.00*

I just love how it turned out, and who can resist another notepad - right?!?

Hope you enjoyed these fun projects that for sure made the Designer Series Paper the star of the show.

I don't know the dimensions as I gave the notebook away. I just measured the notebook and went down lol.
