I saw the Picture Perfect Party designer series paper and wasn't sure if I would like it or not. Then I saw what others were making with it and I was crazy over it. I immediately ordered and used it on this weeks CASEing Tuesday card. It is so easy to make a card with this paper! This card took me no more that 10 minutes to make, if that. It is so easy, that I made 50 more of them! Yes, you read that correct. I am going to a retreat in February and this is going to be my swap card.
Here is the inspiration for this weeks card:
On this card I used the Peekaboo Peach cardstock, which I love, because it will be retiring in April. I start now telling all of my customers that if you really want something in the annual catalog now is the time to get it. Get the cardstock, designer series paper, ribbon, embellishments, ink and definitely refills for your ink pads. Trust me, I learned the hard way about not getting the reinker at the same time when I bought the ink pad. I won't do that again. The colors that for sure will be retiring are the Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum. I am going to miss these colors.
To make this project you will need the following products:
Peekaboo Peach Cardstock:
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
Bermuda Bay Cardstock #131197
- cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"
Whisper White Cardstock #100730
- cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper #145559
- 4" x 5 1/4"
This card is very easy to assemble. The first thing I did was to wrap the ribbon, Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon, around the center of your designer series paper. Adhere it to your card base with Snail adhesive. Next, stamp your image onto your white paper and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits. At the same time you can cut out the Bermuda Bay piece with the Layering Oval Framelits.
Adhere the white piece to the Bermuda Bay cardstock and use Stampin Dimensionals to adhere it to your card base. I added 3 rhinestones to give it a little bit of bling. That is it, you are done! Wasn't that easy!
I went to a Leadership Conference in Michigan the first weekend in February and learned so much. I have had my mind going crazy with ideas and trying to comprehend everything we learned. It was so much fun! I got to meet the number one demonstrator in the company, Robyn Cardon and the second demonstrator, Angie Juda. They were so nice and graciously taught us how to be a great leader. Ronda Wade, another fabulous demonstrator, put on the conference and did a fabulous job.
Here are some pictures from the weekend.

If you look at the bottom left picture, my very good friend, Cathy, is right next to me. We keep saying we need to get a picture of the two of us together and never do it. In April, that is the first thing we are going to do!
One thing that totally amazed me about this conference was how gracious everyone was. We all helped out each other, got along, had fun, laughed, stamped, learned and just have a good time with each other. I met some of the nicest people and know that I will be friends with them for a very long time. I can't wait to see them again.
Thank you for stopping in today! I hope you have a terrific day!
