First, you are probably wondering who is Donna?
Next you are probably wondering why I am blaming her.
Well, it all started on the PTI forum and Donna posted a question basically asking if she would regret cutting up all her 12"x12" patterned paper into 6"x6" squares for better storage. Since she only makes cards and doesn't do any scrapbooking she didn't think it would hurt.
After reading her post and realizing that I have five to eight 12"x12" patterned paper pads before I stopped buying them, that I should do the same thing. I'm just going to work on 1 pad a night so it doesn't become overwhelming.......but, I decided to do the same thing (since I also only make cards). Here's the link to the thread, if you are inclined to see everyone's responses:
The first patterned paper pad that I decided to cut is one of my favorites that I got this spring from DCWV called Green Tea Stack. It's a ton of lime green, blues, and aquas. Just gorgeous! I never thought that I would end up with THIS much, though:
While cutting it up, I ran across 2 sheets that had this huge beautiful foil flower. It was so, so pretty and I just had to use it. So, I did what any good crafter would do.......I stopped cutting up the paper and I started crafting with those flowers......lol I'm glad I did because look what came out of it.
|These were probably the most simple cards that I ever did make.........but they are one of my favorites, too!|
I am officially blaming Donna for these two cards!!!
I guess I better go start cutting paper pad #2 so I can find another gem! ;-)
