Paper Dash!

Today's post is all about the paper.  I have lots of cards which I have made and just have not had time to show, but as there is the countdown to the new catalogue and the retired list contains some of my favourite papers which will be going I just had to post pictures of those paper creations!  You'll have to excuse my photography though - I have yet to find the perfect spot to perch my creations for the best light.

This cheerful collection is from a hostess party where I demonstrated the lovely little curved top bag and, of course, the Simply Scored Tool.  The papers are the 'Cheerful Treat' from the Hostess products.                                      I love the colours on these papers and the also the great selection of patterns - they work so well too with my first attempts at Pinwheels with the Simply Scored tool.  Just add some Rhinestone brads (which are not photographed so well) to give them that extra special finish.

As hostess products this is definitely your last chance to get these papers - there's still time to book a party in September though to earn your hostess pounds to purchase them!

My lovely summer-feel card with paper daisies was inspired by the sunshine which is staying with us!  I have highlighted the daisies with a Daffodil Delight marker pen and then the centres are made from the Blossoms punch and a small circle which I have folded in on the edges.  I have used the Little Leaves die for the Big Shot, but you can also use the branch from the Bird punch.

I just love this colour combination of Daffodil Delight and Certainly Celery.  The paper at the top is from the Domestic Goddess papers and the bottom paper is from the standard pattern DSP pack (Brights collection).

Last, just a little something I made from the Nursery Nest papers.  It is a perfect small gift idea - just a post-it note pad and some Stampin' Up! product and it is all ready to say a little 'thanks' to someone special.

Make sure you check out the retired list for these papers and other items you need to buy now before they are no longer available.  Some items have already gone out of stock, so don't delay if you have some favourites on your wish lists.
