There are heaps of lovely things you can do with designer paper and I've decided that from now on, I'll use 'Designer Paper' as a category in my index rather than listing the name of the paper range. I do hope you'll find it helpful resource in the future.
My card today shows one of my favourite ways of using designer paper - working with it! There's a big trend at the moment for combining strips of different papers in horizontal stripes. It's quite tricky to come up with the right combination of papers and patterns but there's a paper in the Patio Party range that cuts out all the hard work! Come and have a look:
I love this paper - there's no going to all the trouble of selecting papers, sticking together and cutting accurately - you just need to cut! With all the time I'd saved, I was able to focus on some detailing...
... these banners for example, were part of the paper design - I just drew attention to them by snipping round them.
To finish, I added two pretty, die-cut buttons, layered together and embellished with bakers twine, and a hand cut sentiment. The catalogue lists the colours used in each of the paper ranges, right next to the price, so it's really easy to add matching die-cut elements to your projects.

Has everyone seen episode 5 of Downton Abbey now? Oh my goodness, I think Julian Fellowes, the writer, must be in league with Kleenex - we're completely cleaned out of tissues in our house!
