“Spring” ahead?


Ok–Is it just me or is the whole world exhausted this morning??!!  This “spring” ahead thing is tough!  I would not describe what I am doing today as “springing”!!   In any case, they say spring is coming (“spring ahead”, after all) so it will be worth it…..just might need a nap or two before we get there!

Today’s post features the word set from the  STampin’ Up! SaleABration catalog, Vintage Verses.   And really–what is more perfect on a Monday morning than a card “just because”?!  The color combo from the card comes directly from the Print  Poetry DSP in the mini catalog.  When in doubt about color, just grab a piece of Designer Series Paper!   I particularly LOVE this designer paper for a few reasons:

It is smaller than standard DSP, measuring 4 1/2 x 6 1/2.  It works perfectly to cut down for a card front or to use full-sized to  frame a basic 4 x 6 photo when scrapbooking.  There are 4 sheets of each double sided design–enough to make several of whatever it is you are creating.   You get 48 sheets total in the pack!  It is inexpensive–only $6.95 for all these great patterns!   AND this particular pack contains all the new In Colors  (Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, and Summer Starfruit) so you can’t go wrong mixing and matching (think Garanimals!).    Be sure to check it out!

Butterfly from the Bloomin' Marvelous set.

The butterfly is also from a SaleABration stamp set called Bloomin’ Marvelous.  I stamped it off (“decaf”) for a lighter version of the “full strength” Midnight Muse.   I wanted to give it a softer look and this method is perfect for that.  Punching out the image (or cutting if you have the patience) and popping it up on a dimensional “pops” the butterfly.

   You still have time to get both of these sets—for a few more days anyhow!  Sale A Bration ends on March 22nd so plan your order accordingly!
