When I went to my local scrapbook store the other day they had Amy Butler’s Lotus paper right near the door — I’ve been a big Amy fan for ages, love her fabric — swoon! Such yummy colors — grey! yellow! red! lime! — + patterns. I wanted to snap up the whole display, but I restrained myself to just 8 sheets. Somehow. Kinda kicking myself now, might have to go back!
Anyhow, as one of my resolutions is to stop hoarding paper, I decided to dive right in and play with one of the sheets.
That’s a new heart from Hero Arts — I embossed it and added pearls
Made two of these cards — one as a thank you and one as an anniversary card for my SIL. Hi Jamie! Here’s the inside of the thank you one — love this message
Then I decided to use the woodgrain heart that’s in the set — you know how I *heart* woodgrain, ha ha!
There was a little scrap of paper from where I trimmed the first card, couldn’t let that go to waste! So I broke out another woodgrain stamp I’d been wanting to try
There’s still almost a half sheet left… must. not. hoard. it.
