Hi! Jeanne here today with the Thursday Tip! This time it's simple - mix it up! Don't worry about mixing and matching papers and different elements from different collections - just mix them up! Since they're all printed by Pretty Little Studio they'll match every time!
I used papers from the Birthday Cake and Silly Monkey Collections for my background. I always store my left over scraps in an envelope stored with the other papers from the collection. Small pieces are great for patchwork backgrounds, adding a simple border (like the black checked pattern on my card), making tabs or for die cutting words.The sentiment is from the Birthday Cake Surprise Paper Ribbons - they're die cut and ready to use. You can find them on clearance now for only 25 cents!! Notice how the red ribbon sentiment perfectly matches the red in the background and the red ribbon on Ellie Elephant!
I love the vintage images from Pretty Little Studio - they remind me of shaped cards from my childhood and in a way I feel like I'm passing on some of my memories to a new generation.
This one is sure to make a little in your life happy!
