Hello to my blogger friends! One of my recruits, Carolyn Gray, shared this cute sampler project with me. I loved it so much, I made another one, adding a layer of our Silver Glimmer Paper and Pool Party card stock, embossed the white squares with polka dots, and popped up the banner pieces to give it a little more BLING! I love how it turned out.
All of you know that I love tone-on-tone things, so I had to try my hand making this sampler in all Very Vanilla card stock. I also tried making it in all Sahara Sand card stock with Pink Pirouette flowers. They turned out beautifully! I offered the Very Vanilla sampler, along with a Very Vanilla card, at my Thursday Therapy yesterday. We had a wonderful time and everyone LOVED their samplers! Thank you, Carolyn, for such a splendid idea!
