At first glance at the card I’m sharing today, you might think I’ve pasted a Memories & More card on the front of a card base and called it a day. I have to admit that it FEELS very Memories & More, but it’s not! Here’s the card I’m excited to share with you today:
I’ve been obsessed with this striped design from the Abstract Beauty 6″ x 4″ Specialty Designer Series Paper. There are five colors in this 6″ design – Magenta Madness, Crushed Curry, Balmy Blue, Night of Navy and Blushing Bride. I cropped off the 1″ piece of Blushing Bride (I had to choose between Magenta Madness and Blushing Bride). Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in this incredible pack of papers (you can click on the picture below to flip through the pages in my online store):
You can see my striped page (third from the end on the bottom row). It’s pretty invigorating, isn’t it? I was unsure about how to showcase this brilliant piece of paper UNTIL … I saw that the Playful Alphabet Dies (a handy friend over the past two years) is retiring and discounted.
Playful Alphabet Dies (#152706) –
If you’ve been checking out the Last Chance List, you might have noticed that several items that weren’t discounted when the sale kicked off are now discounted. What a bonus! I love that the remaining items are getting cheaper, but there’s no guarantee any of these products will be there for the next round of discounts.
I know you are going to pick up the Playful Alphabets Dies today (if you don’t already have them). While you are there, check out some of the other items for sale in the online store. Here’s a link:
