Paper Hoarders Beware

Hands up if you are a paper hoarder like me.

Yesterday I thought it was about time that I started to sort out all my retiring (and retired) Designer Series Paper (DSP) to make way for the new DSP and card stock coming our way 2 July. Oh boy, it's just as well that my husband didn't come to check on me. Let's just say I didn't know just how much I have!

I have a few unopened packs that will find their way to new homes later this year but I also have quite a few that have been opened. I've decided that I really do need to use up some of the open packs so here's a card I made using Patio Party Designer Series Paper.

 A view of the front.

A view of the inside. I opted to decorate the inside because the Midnight Muse card stock is too dark to write on, but the Whisper White card stock looked too stark. So, I solved the problem by stamping an image using the Make a Cake stamp set. I had to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure that I had the top layer of the cake on straight.

Stampin' Up! supplies used:

Stamp set : Teeny Tiny Sentiments and Make a Cake
Ink: Midnight Muse and Perfect Primrose
Card Stock : Whisper White and Midnight Muse
Designer Series Paper : Patio Party
Accessories : Scallop Oval and Extra Large Oval punches, Stamp-a-ma-jig and Dimensionals

I'll have another project to share tomorrow so check back to see what I've been up to.

  1. We must have been on the same wavelength yesterday as I was doing exactly the same thing and like you have a huge pile of opened and part used papers. I didn't make anything though - just put them in another drawer!
