I thought everyone spoke in Stampin’ Up! code, I really did. And then, when I started using abbreviations in my camp instructions, I found out I was wrong. DSP? Designer Series Paper, or patterned paper to the non-SU! world.
I’ve always loved making my own DSP. It’s got just the colors I want and just the images I want. In fact, if I really want some inky happiness, I make a whole 8½” x 11″ sheet of pattern, called a master board, then cut it up for as many different cards as I can make. We’ve done that in camps called One Sheet Wonders. Maybe I need to revive those.
This panel came from design work on projects for June camps and workshops using the floral stamps from Everything Eleanor, a set I got (as did hundreds of other demos) at Leadership in January. I had all three stamps affixed to one clear block to make stamping easier and quicker, although creating these master boards is a leisurely, relaxing activity for me.
Do you like the lacy border? My head was so turned by those wonderful Sale-A-Bration notecards with their pre-cut edges that I didn’t grasp how small these Edgelits are. I really like both this one and the little sawtooth edge. However, there is an issue that I’ll cover in my Tuesday Tip next week.
And the sentiment? As DH would say, “Now, who would you send this to?” Certainly not to him. Doing nothing? Doesn’t happen. He is not one to “eat the bread of idleness.” Unless eyes are closed and breathing is heavy, of course.
