Florence Paper Pack

My order didn't arrive in time so I borrowed some Florence scraps from a consultant friend at our Monthly Fun Day (12 hour cropping day for consultants only). *Note: Since the fun day I have received my order but loved my designed card so much I didn't think I needed another idea. 

My consultant buddy gave me her left overs and I found some scraps I wanted to use and make a card. I laid the scraps down onto a 5 1/2" × 4 1/4" Colonial White Cards & Envelopes, Value Pack card.

I stuck the strips on using Duck® Easy Stick™ AdhesiveI cut the edges off with my Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors.

Another fellow consultant Laura Beacham created a Thin Cuts display page to showcase all the NEW Thin Cuts and I decided to use her idea and create my own also at the Fun Day. I really love the glittery Close to My Heart papers. In the New Annual Inspirations Catalogue the glitter paper is available to purchase as single colour packs (instead of the old 3 different coloured papers in one pack). This is a very exciting change to the new catalogue because its easier to create projects with single colour packs of paper. Birthday or Wedding Invitations with ALL Gold Glitter Paper or Christmas cards with ALL Silver Glitter Paper or ALL Red Glitter Paper

When I cut one of each of the thin cuts I cut an extra set of Stars Thin Cuts—Stars in Gold Glitter Paper to add to my card. Then to stick with the theme of Gold Glitter Paper I cut out a thin cut "Thanks" from Thin Cuts—Hello & Thanks set. 

I adhered the thin cuts Stars and Thanks with Bonding Memories™ Glue Pen
and simple as that the card is complete. I really love the new thin cuts.

This month is also the LAST MONTH OF the Seasonal Expressions Catalogue. Go to mwebsite or your consultants website to see all the exciting products available BEFORE THEY'RE GONE FOREVER!! (yes I'm STILL being dramatic - I don't want anyone to miss out!!!). 

Thanks so much for dropping by to check out my latest project, I hope you get inspired. I'm really interested to hear what you think about it, so I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop on our Australasian Blog Hop which is Creating with Kara Davies.

  Come back to see me again soon.
