Forever & Always

Stampin Up Forever & AlwaysToday is the last day of my Designer Series Paper posts.  If you have been following me you know that all my posts this week use a lot of DSP.  I am a hoarder and I have decided that I don’t want to have tons of retired paper in boxes all over the place so I am determined to use it. The hardest is always that first cut.  Once you do that, it becomes easier to use.

This time I decided to use the Designer Series Paper pack called Paper Blooms.  The best part of this pack is it was FREE!  Yes, it is Sale-a-bration time and Paper Blooms is one of the products you can get for FREE with a qualifying order!  In the past Sale-a-bration was always once a year.  Sometimes it was January & February.  Then a few years ago Stampin’ Up!® added March.  This year, 2021, they are celebrating it in January & February AND once again in July and August with totally different products!

To make these cards I first cut two pieces of the Paper Blooms DSP 3.75″ x 5″.  Then I cut it diagonally.  This gave me four triangles.  One side is Rococo Rose colors and the other is Night Of Navy so I was able to get two cards out of this.  I backed the Night of Navy side onto a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Night Of Navy Cardstock and the Rococo Rose side onto a the same sized piece of Rococo Rose cardstock.  Both of these were then adhered to a Basic White cardstock.

The I decided to use the Forever & Always Bundle that is in the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog.  This bundle includes the Forever & Always stamp set and the Always Dies.  If you purchase both of these in a Bundle you would save 10%.  Then if you purchased something else for $4.25 you would be able to get the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper (or many of the other products in the Sale-a-bration Catalog) for FREE!  I cut the inside sentiments (always and Love) using Basic White cardstock and layered them onto either Rococo Rose or Night of Navy cardstock.  Then I stamped the small word sentiments in Night Of Navy.  I layered the “Love” onto a piece of Basic White cardstock I had cut out using the Stitched Shapes dies.

I hope this week’s posts have helped you get over your DSP hoarding.  I know it has helped me.  I plan on making a lot of cards in the future using it.
