I absolutely LOVE the Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Stack in the Occasions Mini Catalog – you can find it on pg 33 and it is a stack of 48 double sided papers that perfectly co-ordinate with one another and it is a steal of a deal at $24.95 – this makes each sheet just 51c which is an amazing price for quality scrapbooking paper…

The Sweet Pea stack features lots of beautiful patterns and some sheets feature the most adorable flowers and birds that are perfect on their own to create the most amazing scrapbook pages…I also love to cut or punch those flowers and birds out to feature them on cards – the card below is just one of my ways to do this…

I chose papers from the stack that had the colors Old Olive, Bashful Blue and So Saffron in them – I punched out squares from various patterns using my 1″ Square Punch and arranged them into the order I wanted – I adhered them to a piece of Old Olive cardstock and tied around a piece of 5/8″ Old Olive Grosgrain – I then matted this onto a piece of So Saffron cardstock.

I took a 1 1/2″ Metal Edged Tag (pg 181) and punched out a piece of DSP featuring another cute bird – I stamped my sentiment onto it from the set Teeny Tiny Wishes and adhered it to the tag.  I punched a hole through the top and tied it to the ribbon using a piece of Linen Thread and used Dimensionals to secure it to the card base…and there you have a very easy but co-ordinated card to use for any occasion by simply changing the sentiment…

Want to try this paper without buying the full pack?  I still have a couple of spots available in a paper share and satin ribbon share from the Occasions Mini – please click HERE for more details…

    Hi Sarah! I am one of Stella’s followers 🙂 I love the Bloomin’ Beautiful card you sent with her Stellar Coffee (what a cute gift).
    Thanks for sharing the idea posted here. I have a whole stash of these metal edged tags and never know what to do with them. Your bird card is precious!
