Protect yourself!

Before you go any further, prop some cushions or pillows all around you ... you are gonna want a soft landing when you fall over with shock!!! Why? Because after a break of about 6 months (and that was for a workshop), I have created a scrapbook page!!!!!!!!! Oops! there you go! are you OK? did the pillows break your fall? Phew! just as well I warned you!

Two things have prompted me to dust the cobwebs off my scrapbooking skills: (a) it is National Scrapbooking Month (and I couldn't take the guilt!) and (b) the totally GOJUS designer papers SU have this year. OK, three things - (c) the May special on designer papers!

In spite of the price increase from last year, these papers are still excellent value for money - for $17 you get 12 sheets of double sided paper, which works out at around $1.42 per sheet. And this month's special works out to be $1.06 per sheet! You will easily pay $2 or $2.50 per sheet in your LSS and they DON'T have colour co-ordinated cardstock, ink, ribbon, brads, buttons, etc. (Have I mentioned how much I LOVE SU?!)

Now, all of this espousing the virtues of the new DSP is going to seem a little strange when you see my layout, because the larger papers I've used are now retired! But there are two current ones in there, and rest assured there will be more pages to follow! So, drumroll please, in honour of this highly auspicious occasion - ta da!

Supplies used:

  • cardstock - basic black (textured), sahara sand
  • papers - Spring Showers (retired), Sweet Slumber speciality, Windsor Knot
  • punch - word window
  • other - chipboard hearts from On Board Essentials, dimensionals, sponge daubers, black journalling pen, black heart brad (stash), white gel pen

Thanks for dropping by. With all those pillows around you, you might as well leave the housework and just keep blog hopping ... much more fun!
