Petals & Paisley Card Organiser

25Feb09

I have a lot of catching up to do so here is one of my projects.  This is from my Sale-A-Bration Spectacular that I had a few weeks ago.

I first came across this idea from Steph.  Check out her site for other designs

Petals & Paisley Card Organiser

dsc05647

This card organiser is a cute way to organiser your cards for birthdays and special occasions.  There is one page for each month and each page has a small calendar to write all the events on and a pocket to keep all your cards in.  You’ll never forget a birthday again!

For my card organiser I have used the petals & paisley designer series paper.  Old Olive, Pretty in Pink and Taken with Teal inks and cardstock.  The ribbons are Certainly Celery and Whisper White.  The butterfly and ladybug are from the Garden Whimsy stamp set and for the designs on the inside pages I have used the polka dots & paisley stamp set. 

I have only recently bought the polks dots & paisley stamp set.  I always wanted to buy it but never had the occosion to do so.  Now that I have used it I absolutely love it.  It is fantastic to make your own background paper and just as great for adding that little something extra to your projects. 

This stamp set is one of 10 that have been selected by Stampin’ Up! to be part of their Bush Fire Appeal campaign.  If you purchase any of the selected sets from now until 31 March 2009 Stampin’ Up! will donate 50% of the sales to the Australia Red Cross Victorian Bushfires 2009 Appeal.  These are the selected sets

*These sets will appear on the upcoming list of retiring products, so they will only be available for the Bushfire Appeal–while supplies last.

**In the Summer Mini Catalogue.

You’ll also note that the Polka Dots and Paisley Stamp set will be one of the stamp sets that will be “retired” from the Stampin’ Up! range.  This means that it will only be available until the 31st March as the new stock will be available from 1st April.  If you’ve ever wanted to purchase any of the above 10 stamp sets then now is the time.  You can help the victims of the bushfires in Victoria as well as grab the stamp set you want before it’s gone for good.

This card organiser project was a great hit but unfortunately it took up a lot of time (as everyone wanted to make one) and our guests didn’t get much of a chance to make anything else.  Due to this time hogging project Jennis and I would love to hold another class in March to allow you the opportunity to make the cards that were available that day (and hopefully use them to fill your card organisers).  If you are interested please email me at amy.waters@bigpond.com

PS. Sorry for the long message 🙂
