Stampin' Friends No Rules Blog Hop.

Welcome to the March Stampin' Friends Blog Hop! Thanks for hopping with us today. No rules, no theme, no color combo, no sketch! I don't know what to do! Give me guidelines, give me boundaries!  I have a really hard time deciding what to do when I have no given direction. But, I landed on a concept I have been working on for a while! I have too much paper! (Insert horror face, did she really say that, Gasp). I really do. I love Designer Series Paper and I buy a lot of it. So my plan is to cut it up and use it! I've been making list of all the ways I can use Stampin' Up's awesome double sided and specialty papers.I have just a couple to show you today but more in the works. Here's all the projects I made for today. There are two cards with double layered DSP, 2 matching envelopes, 1 made with the envelope punch board and one lined with DSP, a gift card holder and a wood mount stamp case lined with DSP to hold it all.














I really like this cute Bubble and Fizz paper from the Sale A Bration flyer this year. Here is a close up of the 2 cards I made.
By double layering the DSP I used more than I usual and love the outcome.
For my project, I used the DSP to line Stampin' Up's wood mount cases.
The total dimensions for the liner is 7" x 11 1/4". I cut my DSP 6" x 11 1/4", then added a  coordinating 3/4" strip to the top and bottom. I covered the seam with a strip of washi tape. Added a saying and it's done! The gift card holder is just a piece of  DSP 6" x 5 1/4". Add a belly band and embellish!
 Here is a picture of the inside with the cards inside. And I have more to add, but that's for another day! Hope you enjoyed this projects. There were fun to make.  I think this might be a great gift idea for my family members for their birthday's. We have 16 grown niece's and nephew's!











THIS IS IMPORTANT!
