Patterned Paper Blog Hop With DeNami Design



Hello and welcome to your next stop on DeNami Design's Patterned Paper Blog Hop! If you're on track, you've arrived here from Greta's GORGEOUS blog!!! If not...no worries...just head on over to the DeNami Design Blog to start from the beginning!

I admit that I am totally addicted to patterned paper and have quite the collection in my studio!!! And patterned paper goes hand-in-hand with one of my FAVORITE stamping techniques...paper piecing!!! So, without further delay, here's my creation for today's hop:


I had so much fun paper piecing those flip flops that I just couldn't resist making a second card!!! I needed a 50th birthday card for my SIL. She loves summertime---hanging out by the pool, living in her flip flops. So, here's what I came up with:


...and I created a customized sentiment for the inside using Microsoft Word:


 I hope she gets a kick out it!!!

I would have bet money you were going to paper piece. You are a PRO at it! Love the flip flops, and what a fun saying to add to the inside of the card. Perfect!
