After making my own designer paper here with a potato, I was ready to move on to the next video from the Online Card Classes "Pattern Play." As it happens, the guest designer was one of my card heroines, Laura Bassen of Doublestick Heaven. If you don't have her in your subscriptions, you are missing out on a lot of bruises from falling out of your chair when you open her post emails.
Anywilly, I thought you might get a kick out of seeing the original old-fashioned magazine format! Even today, with a little modern updating, the prince apple is still a good one. You can, for instance, mask off areas (I think you might need to do some math, sorry) before you stamp your paper.
Okay, off you go to be inspired by this incredible windfall of creativity, but, please, take your time! There is so much pretty inspiration for everyone! I know we live in an insane time where you feel as though you are only allowed a half second per screen shot, but whoa, Nelly, not true here! Leave your hurry on the doorstep! Besides, I don't want your clicking arm to fall off. It will, you know.
I am working for the next week doing a vacation fill-in, so I will miss tomorrow's WOYWW hop. I still hope to continue in the evening catching up on my class and my homework, which I will share when I can.
Thank you so much for stopping by the Playhouse. Special thanks to you if you take the time to leave a comment or join as a follower.
