In Good Taste DSP Paired with Hand-Penned Petals

You can find the Hand-Penned Petals bundle, the stamp set and dies used to create this card, in the Annual Catalogue on page 105 along with other items from the Hand-Penned Suite. While I do like the coordinating Hand-Penned designer series paper, I wanted to share that you can choose which designer series paper (DSP) you want to pair with any stamp set. Using DSP that is designed to work with a stamp set or bundle is an easy way to recreate project seen in the catalogue or create your own designs. But sometimes the DSP is either not in our favourite colours, design or perhaps there is already some DSP stashed in your crafting supplies? No, that last one cannot be the case! shhh, I won't tell. I have lots that I haven't used too!
The In Good Taste Designer Series Paper is one of my favourite packs of designer series paper. Not only for the wood style sheets but that it has 24 sheets (normally the packs have 12 sheets). The neutral and natural designs are great addition to cards, scrapbook layouts (like my July Paper Pumpkin layout) and 3 dimensional projects.

Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop - The Adventure Begins

Hello and welcome to July's Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop!
The Adventure Begins Paper Pumpkin kit is gorgeous and I'm loving the outdoorsy designs! The cards in this kit are a three fold design. You can use them as designed or trim off one of the folded pieces to use with some additional cardstock.
The card on the right side was created using the kit as designed and the card on the left I cut off one of the panels then added some Garden Green and Granny Apple Green cardstock. Watch the video below to learn how you can create these two cards.

After creating those cards I thought of camping at Charleston Lake Provincial Park because of the trees and camper images. A good excuse to stretch the kit to create a scrapbook layout! I searched through my pile of photos and found these from our 1996 fall trip. Thanksgiving long weekend camping was one of my favourite things to do with my family growing up. Autumn is the best time of year with cooler temps and colourful leaves. 
Here is a close up of the layout showing the stamping.

Stop by and say hello to the other blog hop participants listed below:

Perfectly Plaid with Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper

Inside the Annual Catalogue you can find the Holidays Section starting on page 88. The Tidings of Christmas suite uses the traditional colours I like to use for Christmas: greens and red. There is a coordinating stamp set & die bundle that is designed to work with the Tidings of Christmas designer series paper. But you could use any Christmas or Holiday themed stamp set with it. I've used the Season's Blessing stamp set and now the Perfectly Plaid stamp set.
The Perfectly Plaid stamp set is a carry-over set and has a matching punch. Purchasing the punch with the stamp set will help you create lovely holiday themed cards and projects. Do you own this set yet?
