Do you have Design Paper that isn’t your style???

17 May

Come on my crafty friends…. we have all done this…. bought Design Paper that really isn’t your style and it ends up on the bottom of the pile because you can’t quite figure out what to do with it right????  I’ve got a TON of the stuff and I have been trying to figure out what to do with it because I just CAN NOT waste it!!!  That would be just WRONG!!!! lol!!!  Check this out…. Now this paper just seemed a bit on the wild side to me but once I started cutting out butterflies with it on my Cricut it totally changed my mind!!!!

This is another beautiful butterfly die cut Tony made for me for my Cricut using Sure Cuts Alot…. isn’t it fantastic????  I totally love this pretty easel card, and it is super quick and easy to put together!  I also need to draw your attention to the fantastic new ribbon Kim is stocking at The Cutting Garden… I love this pretty sheer ribbon with the silver trim… It is really lovely 🙂

Here’s a peek inside…

I added some stickles to the edges of the butterfles to give them some shimmer.  I love the look of this, it is very pretty.

I had some left overs from this paper and I have been sticking with my rule of using up a full sheet of design paper once I cut into it, I decided to make another card….

I used the same butterfly cut but made a standard tent fold card along with the Stampin’ Up Elegant Lines embossing folder.

Well I hope your visit today has inspired you to get crafting!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

    I absolutely LOVE this paper and this color palate! Combined with your creative flair this card looks beautiful! You could always send the paper my way! Actually, I have always wanted to start some sort of club or exchange or something where crafters could “regift” or simply donate dies, paper or stamps they’re tired of to crafters in areas where there are no craft stores! Beautiful designs! Keep inspiring us all!

    I know the feeling! I to have some paper that just never seem to end up on a project, although I have tried. You made something really wonderfull out of it, so in my opinion you passed the exams with the highest grade D:.
