A few of my crafting friends and I went in together on a SU DSP share. We each bought three packs of DSP and then split the packs evenly. In total each of use got a 6x12 sheet of each design from 12, yes 12!, DSP packs. Well all the paper is really gorgeous and fun, it is all retiring at the end of May. This means that I want to try and use of this retiring paper to make room for the new designs. During my crafting open house at the end of April, I spent some time using the rest of the Gingham Garden DSP. I made 8 total cards from the rest of the paper.
The first card used some die cut flowers that another crafting had leftover from her card. I cut a few more flowers and added a cute Mother's Day banner. Love the bright colors on this one.
In the end, I have just a few card layering sheets and a few a larger pieces left. I used a tried and true card design and just cut three banners per card. Add a sentiment and I have a complete card. I love the pattern play on these cards, especially the pink one (second picture, right side).
These cards came from my desire to use my Floral Frames die cuts. I can't believe I bought them weeks ago, but have never really used them. I grabbed a few of the patterns and just started cutting. The only frame I didn't use was the biggest one (too big to fit on a standard card). I love how they tuned out. They look even better in person due to the 3D nature of the cards.
The last card is a replica of a card we made at April stamp club. While, i don't usually go super girly, I love the patterns and colors of the sample card much that I had to make another one.
When all was said and done, I have completely used up all the Gingham Garden DSP. Now I have room to buy a new pack in June.
