Flowers in February

We won’t be seeing flowers in our gardens for a bit yet, alas, but we can see them in our craft rooms right now! Thanks to Taylored Expressions Sketchbook Florals Stamps and Dies.

These cards were made by stamping the Sketchbook Florals on Northwoods Watercolor Paper, then colored using Tombow Dual Brush Pens and a waterbrush to get the soft, ethereal look of a watercolor painting.

The Sketchbook Florals set has useful sentiments in typewriter + script fonts, which work beautifully on their own; but also pair well with Taylored Expressions Field Notes Stamp Set, which contains the dotted grid and interlocking diamonds. Other items featured here include Taylored Expressions’ Gingham Check Background and Rough Draft graph, as well as Penny Black’s super-useful Antique Frame nested die set.

BYOB?

In this case, it stands for Bring Your Own Bag, and all shoppers who do so will be given an extra punch on their Frequent Shopper Card for helping us do our part to save the planet! ♥

Meanwhile, if you don’t have a re-useable bag to bring on your shopping excursions, we’re going to be re-stocking our Paper Anthology totebags; this new design will be version three! Shoppers who own an older Paper Anthology tote, or purchase a new one, will henceforth be known as Bag Ladies (or Bag Gentlemen, everyone is welcome!) and should keep an eye out for special savings on Bag Lady Days!
