Sometimes it is a good thing to try something new when it comes to anything including crafting. I look at my stamp sets and love all of them (I try to buy only sets I love) but sometimes something catches my eye that I didn’t expect to. I already wrote about how I am trying to get stamp sets that my grandchildren would like and I love all the ones I already purchased. Lately, I have been trying to look at sets that are a little different. The All Squared Away bundle is one of those sets. It caught my eye the first time I saw it but it was different so I wasn’t sure I would love it. Turns out I do!
The All Squared Away bundle includes the stamp set of the same name and the Floral Squares Dies (and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a bundle). The dies cut out the squares with the flowers in the middle as well as some of the flower shapes. The stamps have backgrounds you can use to put behind the squares and a bunch of sentiments.
To make this card I first cut out the four squares in Basic White card stock. Then I cut out the various flowers using the coordinating dies in Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo and Mango Melody card stock and adhered them to the squares using Multipurpose Glue. I cut out four squares out of the Host Pattern Party Designer Series Paper pack and glued them to the back of the squares. I decided to use DSP just to make it a bit quicker. I attached them to a Coastal Cabana card base. Then I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink and added the little flower on the side.
Next time a stamp set or bundle catches your eye, pay attention to it. Your eyes caught it for a reason!
