May club was lots of fun. We focused on the Designer Series Paper promotion that is going on this month. The deal is buy 3 get on free on any of our Designer Series Paper, Designer Prints Paper and Textured Card-stock. I love our DSP so I’m really excited about this promotion. It ends May 31st so there is still time for you to get in on this great promotion.
The paper that I chose to showcase is the the Walk in the Park from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I used the layout design from page 6 of the mini catalog as my inspiration. Because I was making a two page layout I actually split the design across the two pages. I wanted to use the Textured card-stock so I used it as the pieces that were punched. It adds a nice texture to the page. Both the large butterfly and the forever card-stock were cut out with the big shot.
I also created a card that matched the theme from the pages. Remember that when you are using DSPyou can use it as just an accent on your page or card. You don’t need to make the entire project out of it. One of my favorite parts is how fun the butterfly looks under the ribbon. You may have noticed the words in the oval. The original saying is thank you. We used the markers to color just the edge and the butterfly. Then we used “Friend” from Fundamental Phrases to add the word. This technique is great to make a variety of different cards with any saying that you want.
This last card was a design that I cased from a card we made at Amy’s meeting last month. I loved the layout and thought it would work great with the DSP. As you can see I’ve only used the DSP for the butterfly and the small background pieces behind it. Because the DSP is thin you can actually corner round all three of the small strips at the same time.
