This Designer Series Paper (DSP) didn’t look as brilliant in the catalogue as it does in real life – the lesson here is to buy it if the thumbnails even slightly intrigue you. Not once has any of the products I have bought this way failed me. I’m sure you’ll agree by watching my video below, this paper is absolutely gorgeous!
I love the contrast of the bright colours against the black background, and I also love that the papers (and the stamp set) are one of the many options you can earn for FREE until the 28th February. The selection this year is one of the the best I have seen in my time as a demo! I’m not sure what the project I made is considered a box or a bag, but I love it nonetheless. They can store flat too, so for those who may mass produce them for sending treats or products, they can make them in advance and store them with minimal space required.
And don’t get me started about how good this stamp set is – I find myself reaching for it all the time. Just like the paper it is one of the choices available for FREE during Sale-a-Bration.
Have you chosen either of these as part of your freebies?
I’ve said it before and I will say it again, Product Medleys are amazing. The Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue offers one of my favourite ones in Boho Indigo, not only do you get everything you well need except ink and glue in a single product, but you can buy refill kits to continue making more and more and never run out. With stamps, dies, designer series paper (DSP), embossed card, ribbon & pop outs, there is lots for you to work with and make a variety of projects.
It features one of my favourite colours, Misty Moonlight and pairs it up with Very Vanilla (which isn’t featured enough in my opinion), with gold and green accents in the popups and ribbon.
So, aside from adding a couple of ink pads and picking an adhesive, you receive everything to get you going on your craft journey – perfect for beginners. If you search my website using the tag #bohoindigo you will be able to see exactly what I have made with the set!
Are you a beginner crafter that isn’t sure how to start making cards? Let me know..
You know when you sit down at your craft table with a project in mind, but then something just doesn’t go quite right so you end up with something completely different? Well that’s what happened here, a misjudged measurement meant the project took a very different turn and ended in something else, equally beautiful.
The project gave me the opportunity to use the pierced blooms dies again, which now I have them, I cannot stop using. They’re the perfect addition to any project and coincidentally co-ordinate with the FREE Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP) that I chose.
Also I’ll let you into a little secret, I personally prefer the version I made in the video, especially because I manage to tie a gorgeous bow on camera!
Have you ever had a project that went wrong, but then you preferred the end result?
How amazing is the new Hydrangea Hill Mercury Acetate? I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a pack of it – not only because it contains purple either! The pack contains two different colours, Highland Heather & Rococo Rose, both equally beautiful. My box is made from Highland Heather and during my Facebook Live, I made one using Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Snail Mail suite.
The box is a prism slider, where the acetate or DSP acts as a ‘wrap’ around the inner card box. It’s a good size and will hold a varying amount of sweet treats or jewellery – perhaps even stationary. Because of the acetate and how stunning it looks, I didn’t need to add much more to get a gorgeous finish to the project.
A quick bow using the Gorgeous Grape sheer ribbon, a couple of flowers from the Hydrangea dies and a sentiment from the ‘You are Amazing’ stamp set. Quick and easy project which showcases the suite perfectly.
Which way did you prefer – acetate or Designer Series Paper?
