I'm am in such need of some 'retail therapy' right now! This penny pinching is torture!!! ;) So why not live vicariously through a bella, eh? This was the Pretties March bella, Savyshopabella....do you see the resemblance? We're like twins, I tell ya! *lol*
I just adore this fun flower paper with bright pinks & greens, it's from DCWV summer stack. Almost everywhere you turn there is something about score lines or embossing the edges of images. I've been doing that for years using a brass template and embossing tool. Just run it across the edges of your paper and make a fun embossed border! I stamped my bella in Adirondack pitch black ink, this is by far the BEST ink when working with Copics. The skinny oval shape is from the Sassy Circles set, which is perfect for grounding your bellas. I've been stalking every website and local scrap store in search of the Swiss Dots embossing folder and I finally got my hands on it...love it! Now I know why Joanne uses it so much, it's just perfect for any card!
I know the Pretties subscribers will miss their monthly boxes since they end this month but now you can sign up for the Stamp of the Month club and get exclusive Paper Pretties stamps before anyone else! Plus now they even have gift certificates...you can get ribbon, stamps, brads, paper, and if you're stumped for what to get me for a house warming, just add a gift certificate to your basket! ;) Have a fabulous Friday folks, I have a long weekend of packing ahead of me. xoxo
