Good Morning! I am so happy to share that I was invited to join the super talented design team for Michele R Designs! Michele Roos creates so many stunning design papers sure to fit any occasion or style! I feel like a kid in a candy store- I don’t know which collection to play with next. The collection I used on my card today is Cottage Garden. I used the 6×6 inch paper and the tags from the Elements papers which I cut down for my sentiment. The possibilities are endless…since a picture is worth a thousand words, let me just show you!
What you may or may not know about Michele’s paper collections is that they include a complete collection in digital format! Many collections feature 6×6 inch and 12×12 inch sizes and you can add on those coordinating extras such as her “Elements” sheets and Inserts! Wow, no longer am I struggling to find space for my paper pads and I never run out of my “favorite” sheets from each collection.
The inserts are so beautiful and they solve the problem of what to add to the inside of the card. They are beautifully decorated with a blank doily which allows you to add your own sentiment- by hand or merged from your favorite sentiment collections! Note: I used 65lb cardstock from Darice to print my papers on an Epson wide format inkjet printer- each package comes in 8.5×11 AND 12×12 format! It is available at Joanns online and in store as well as AC Moore and Amazon! Feels and works exactly like my paper pad design paper.
For my card, I decided to play with a youtube tutorial I saw awhile ago by Angela Holt. These papers yelled “shabby chic” and so I tried my hand at layering lace and doilies and snippets of organza roses (I cut them apart) among the cascade of flowers. I added some twine, pearls and butterflies (cut from the design paper using a MS butterfly punch) and the lovely sentiment is a rubber stamp by Quiet Fire Designs.
