When I got my copy of Seasonal Expressions 2 the first thing I did was ooh and aah over the new papers, then I looked at the stamps, then I made my list of must haves and then I sat back and admired the artwork. I feel that Close to My Heart really hit it out of the ballpark with this catalog supplement.
I was recently told “there is nothing in this catalog for a card maker”. Seriously? I am a card maker first and a scrapbooker second. It really made me go back and look at the papers, accessories and stamps. When I was first introduced to D.O.T.S back in 1992 it was a card makers paradise and then memory keeping came along, but the one thing I have always appreciated is there really is an equal balance.
Today I’m bringing you a card that I was inspired to make from SE2 – mine is not an exact match, but the first person who comments with the correct page number and the set used in the catalog will win a package of Magical sequins!
Ready, set, here’s my card!
I loved the simplicity of this card. I used our scallop border punch and a simple gold sequin along with some twine (like the kind you used to fly a kite with) that was sitting on my desk.
Before you make a quick judgment on a catalog or what a company offers take a couple of looks at the catalog. Now can you find which card inspired me!
Thanks for stopping by…I hope you’ll come back and visit soon!
