I knew when I saw this set that it would get a lot of use. What I didn't count on was the designer paper being so useful on its own. Look at the above card. Cut out two houses from the paper, add a little dazzling diamonds to the roof for snow. Stamp a greeting and run the paper through the Big Shot and you have a simple and yet cheerful card.
While I anticipated using the gingerbread man a lot, I didn't think I would take to the reindeer as much as I did.
I like this card. So simple and cute. Maybe it is the red glitter paper for the bows. Maybe it is the designer paper with the candy cane hearts. The contrast of the colors. Whatever IT is, it makes me happy.
Another great card with tape, punched out designer paper and the mint candies stamped and punched.
Do you remember Aesop’s fable about the Grasshopper and the Ant? The industrious little ant worked all day, every day preparing for the days ahead of him. He was always prepared and never stressed. The grasshopper was a procrastinator. His motto was ‘Why work today when I can wait until I need it tomorrow.’ I try to be that ant and plan ahead, however, deep down inside, I'm a grasshopper. I keep revealing that about myself as I work on projects, have laundry to do or maybe even a lesson that needs to be prepared and I'm off having fun, procrastinating and putting off until I have to do it.
Today I am a grasshopper.
