Ladies in the Limelight – #22

Happy Thursday and welcome to another fun feature of the Limelight Papercrafts sketch and product challenge. This week we are focusing on PATTERNED PAPER!

Do you hoard your patterned paper? I know I do – guilty as charged! Recently I bought some gorgeous paper from Kaisercraft called Waterberry and it took me two months of looking at it longingly EVERY day before I finally decided I would cut into it. I don’t know why, but sometimes it is SO hard! I guess I’m afraid I’ll use it all up and won’t ever be able to find it again. More often then not I don’t replace my much loved paper once I finally do use it. There is always FRESH and NEW ones coming out all the time!

For example, this week I used some fabby fun patterned paper from the October Afternoon line, Cherry Hill. As soon as I saw it up for sale at Limelight Papercrafts, I scooped it up! LOVE this stuff!! I also used the very versatile sentiment kit from Unity called Simply Said. This was a fairly simple card as I wanted to really showcase the cute birds on the paper. I did add some Kaisercraft rhinestones in a couple of the corners for some added interest.

Seeing as this is the first card I have made in probably 2-3 weeks – I hope you like it!! :)

As always, we would love it if you would play along. This should be a fairly easy one to play along with; EVERYONE has patterned paper! :) Here are the details…

  1. Wow, so pretty! I’ve been eyeing that paper at LLPC… and I know exactly what you mean about the DP… I have a hard time cutting in to it too! I hope to be playing along again this week!


  2. Now this is an example of how to use paper!! I’m so like you and in that I hate to cut into some of my favourite papers and I’m really trying to change that. This is darling paper and it goes so well with the sketch.
