Wreath Project


One of the Designer Series Papers in the annual catalog is the very colorful SEE A SILHOUETTE DSP on page 166.  It includes the colors of ~ Blackberry Bliss, Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Mango Melody, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White!!!!!  On August 29 I posted a picture of a project from the Stampin' Up! website ~ a fabulous wreath!  A week ago Rosie (my creative sister-in-law) and I got together to make our own wreaths.  Rosie found the actual twig wreaths at a thrift store and then we got busy with the Big Shot and the leaf dies from the SEASONAL LAYERS DIES (page 195 AC ~ coordinates with the stamp set COLORFUL SEASONS on page 56 AC).  The Designer Series Paper is perfect for this project (and it is on sale all this month!!!) ~
