I thought it would be fun to submit pages featuring products that are available RIGHT NOW. That way if someone gets inspired from a posted LO, they run right out & get that same paper, embellishment, etc. (Are we supposed to be in a recession?)
Anyway, I love this year's DCWV Summer Stack! (The regular paper, not the "bling" version.)
This year's stack has a great VARIETY of themed & patterned papers in it. Many of the pages are just bright, fun colors that could be used for any occasion, regardless of season. (And of course, I got it at Joann for 40% off, or around $12.)
I especially loved the Ferris Wheel paper in the stack & completed this LO at a crop this past weekend. It's actually 2 sheets of EXACTLY the same background paper, I just used some cardstock to cover up one of the ferris wheels so it would look more like 2 coordinating sheets . Pretty sneaky, huh? 😉
What do you think? I thought the paper was perfect for a summer visit to a theme park! I gave my 3rd sheet of the paper to a friend at the crop who was planning to use the paper for a recent visit to a carnival over off Hwy 92 near the old Hobby Lobby. She plans to just cover up the palm trees in the background or just cut-out the ferris wheel & use it as an embellishment since there are no palm trees of Hwy 92.
I look forward to seeing what projects you're working on!
