Creative Inking Blog Hop — Love It Chop It - Designer Series Paper Love

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  I'm so excited to have you join me for the July Creative Inking Blog Hop!  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Colleen Vassos' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop.


With each new catalog comes along a variety of brand new beeee-u-tiful designer series paper packs.  Do you find yourself ordering these amazing papers, opening the pack, smelling the fresh smell of printed paper, then setting it aside because you are too afraid to CUT into any of those beautiful patterns?!!  Meeee toooooo!  Well, this month's blog hop is to help entice you to LOVE it — and — CHOP it!


That's right!  For starter's, when I first saw all of the beautiful floral patterns in the Perennial Essence pack, I thought "No waaaay" can I cut into those beautiful bouquets.  They are way too pretty to cut...they need to be framed all by themselves in a 12 x 12 picture frame and hung on the wall.  Well, you can do that, too, but I'm going to share with you how gorgeous they are made into a set of notecards.


I have been finding myself steering towards the Notecard and Envelope packs that are offered in the Annual catalog for quite a number of projects.  They are perfect for notecards, customer Thank You's, creating a bundle of all occasions and giving as a gift, and the list goes on.


The notecards measure 3-1/2" x 5", so it made it easy to cut each pattern of the Perennial Essence designer paper into 3" strips. Then, each strip gave me two 4-1/2" pieces, leaving me with a 3" x 3" square.  I decided to cut this in 1/2 so that I had two 1-1/2" x 3" strips that I would flip to show off the pattern on the back side.  There are so many coordinating colors that go with this paper making it easy to choose a coordinating matte layer of cardstock to go with the larger patterned pieces.  With one sheet of designer paper, you can get 8 notecards!  SCORE!!



I love the new Timeless Label Punch because of it's subtle rounded ends and the ability to coordinate it with one of the Layering Ovals dies.  The sentiment comes from the Welcome To The Team stamp set, but you can use a variety of sentiments from your collection of stamp sets to create a bundle of All Occasions cards...get well, sympathy, thinking of you, happy birthday, etc.  I left the remaining 5 notecards sentiment-less so that when needed, I can stamp an appropriate sentiment that goes with the occasion.  Pretty cool, huh?!!

Now, I hope you will run to your craft space and go CHOP your favorite designer series papers!  It's okay to LOVE them — but it's important that you use them, too — don't let the dusty bunnies take them over.  LOL!  You'll find the ingredients listed below, and I've set it up super easy for you to click on any of the images and add to your shopping cart in my online store.  I would be so very grateful to you and your support for shopping with me.  Check out my Dreamers Loyalty Reward Program...I love what I do and very much appreciation YOU.  So, I pay it back and reward my loyal customers with a FREE shopping spree. You fill my cup!


So with one click you can be on your way to soak in some more inspiration showcasing more Product Suites that are favorites of the rest of the group.  Your next stop on the hop will be with our very creative, Dena Rekow.  I know her projects will be fabulous...she'll have a gorgeous creation (or two) to share with everyone. Click on the 'Next' button and you'll be at your next stop.  Have fun filling your inspiration bucket...don't forget to come back real soon.  :)
