Kylie Bertucci is one of my all time favorite Stampin’ Up Demonstrators. If you do not follow her blog, you really should. She is from Australia somewhere. Her ever so cute and funny hubby, Bruno, is also a demonstrator. How cool is that!?!
Anyway – one of her favorite sayings is “If you love it, chop it!” This is referring to your favorite Designer Series Paper or DSP as we call it in the biz! Here’s the theory behind that… Why did you buy the paper in the first place? Because you thought it was going to make some most excellent projects. You say visions of wonderful works dancing around in your head. But, then you got the paper in your hand. It’s absolutely lovely. If you cut it and use it, there will be no more. After all, Stampin Up retires their DSP every year so that new and just as lovely papers can be introduced. So, I am here to encourage to buy and USE Designer Series Paper.
Two beautiful sets of DSP are getting ready to say goodbye forever. I encourage you to check them and out stock up on them! Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper and Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper. Hurry and get them before they are gone forever!!! 🙁
Here are two cards that we made at last week’s card class using these papers. I am so sad that that Sweet Sugarplum gingham is going away. I absolutely love it!
They are both super simple and super sweet. Don’t you think!?!
The “You’re Sweet” card was inspired by Lyssa Zwolanek. It uses the Tasty Treats DSP along with the Cool Treats stamp set.
The “Happy Birthday” card was inspired by Stacey Krats. It uses that lovely gingham from the Succulent Garden DSP. The stamp set Fresh Fruit… which is also retiring, so if you want it, you had better snatch it up!!!
Until next time… keep it simple, Stampers!
