On Monday I posted about our Paper Adventures team retreat – click here to see that post. I loved all the cards I made (and had major card envy over the ones I didn’t!). One of the cards that I was lucky enough to make (designed by Mandy Depiazzi of My Paper Trail) had a layout that I just loved. I’ve been using it over the last month for so many cards. It has a repeated sentiment, a tag and a fun element that you can interchange depending on the theme.
This is my version of Mandy’s card using the Bonanza Buddies stamp set & Birthday Bonanza DSP.
And here’s 3 more variations I’ve made –
A soccer theme with For the Win stamp set
A hippo theme for a special birthday request (hippo from an online colouring page site printed on Whisper White and coloured with Stampin’ Blends)
And a dinosaur theme using Dino Days stamp set and Dinoroar DSP.
The tag for all the cards is from the Bonanza Dies. Mandy used the Starburst Punch in her original card. You can always count on some great purchase enabling at team retreat days, so guess which punch I added to my very next order? I can’t believe I’d overlooked it in the Annual Catalogue!
Now is the time to have another look through the current catalogues – the Annual Catalogue & the Jan-June mini catalogue. These both finish on 2nd June 2020 and once the retirement list is announced later this month, some items will sell out fast. Based on previous catalogues, items to sell out first are the retiring In Colors (especially ink refills).
It’s always best to get in early and make sure your favourites are in your craft room before stock becomes limited or unavailable! If you’re shopping in Australia, you can place an order via my online store. Click here to visit.
