Thinking of you....

April Papertrey!

I can hardly believe it's April already, although outside it's definitely feeling more springy.  I blew off more things than I probably should have today, just to play outside with the girls.  We played in the backyard, worked on our training-wheel-free bike riding and ate supper out on the deck.  Definitely more fun than what I should have actually been doing.  :-D 

SO...on to some April Papertrey goodness.  I love, love, LOVE the new Tea for Two set.  I can think of a thousand fun things to do with this set.  I've mentioned before that my mom runs a little tea room and I'm going to have to make up some fun packaging items and cards to sell in her shop.  I just need more hours in the day!!!

I chose to make a tea party setting including an invitation, napkin ring and place card with a pocket for a tea bag.


Stamps: Tea for Two, Polka Dot Basics, Simple Alphabet
Ink: Hibiscus, New Leaf, Aqua Mist, Vintage Cream
Cardstock: Vintage Cream, New Leaf, Hibiscus
Other: Aqua Mist stitched ribbon, gems, scallope diecut (Cricut Storybook), polka dot brad (Bazzill), tea bag

And next is a little more teapot goodness mixed in with some Spots and Dots goodness...


Inside the card is just a bit of ribbon to hold a tea bag in place.

Stamps: Background Basics: Spots and Dots, Tea for Two
Ink: Pure Poppy
Cardstock: Lemon Tart, Vintage Cream
Patterned paper: Bitty Dot Basics
Other: Lemon Tart Ribbon, White/Cream button, Making Memories felt clip, brads, teabag

And lastly, a card using my favorite sentiment from the new Scattered Showers set.  This sentiment just makes me think of Dawn and makes me happy!  Cheer Up Buttercup....doesn't get any sweeter than that, does it? 

Stamps: Scattered Showers, Beyond Basic Borders
Ink: Hibiscus, Aqua Mist, Summer Sunrise, Vintage Cream, New Leaf
Cardstock: Hibiscus, New Leaf, Lemon Tart, Vintage Cream
Patterned paper: Cosmo Cricket (stripe), Bella Blvd (raindrops)
Other: Butterfly punch, oval punches, Summer Sunrise ribbon, Fiskars Apron Lace border punch, Aqua Mist buttons

What another fun, fun release from everyone at Papertrey.  I'm just not sure how the stamp designers keep coming up with this stuff!!  :-) 

I'm off to bed...after sluffing today I NEED to be productive tomorrow!  'night!
