April showers

Hi friends.  Today's card is based on the sketch at Retro sketches and Verve Stamps Challenge: Chevrons.

I used up some of my "hoarded" DSP from SU!  I am trying to widdle down my huge collection but it is taking forever to even dent my piles.  haha  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Speaking of Patterned Papers, does this sound familiar?
  • You have a ton of patterned paper and you can't bare to cut it apart, basically you are a paper hoarder!
  • You want to use patterned paper on your cards but you don't know how.
  • You want some fun ideas in your crafty toolbox on how to use patterned paper.

This week the Design Team is putting on a week-long mini class for StampNation members!  Each day a different DT member will post a new lesson, tutorial, idea on how to use patterned paper on cards.

Our "Pick-a-Pattern" online class is exclusive to StampNation members. 
Don't miss out...
Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
