Welcome! This month’s blog hop is all about card collections that are retiring soon, so if you like what you see, grab these now while you can! I just recently ordered the Love Story card collection, and am so glad I ordered a few sets of them, since they are retiring this collection. The cards are absolutely gorgeous and I really think they can be used for many purposes besides romantic themes. I found a lot of uses for these cards when scrapbooking photos of my kids.
For the “bathtub” page above, I just stamped a small “so much fun” stamp from the “Happy Times” Stampin’ Up!- Project Life collection (also retiring) and stamped the month “January” on the calendar card. Super simple!
It’s tough finding Project Life cards with the color purple/perwinkle in them, like in my little one’s shirt in these photos…and black and white cards are a great option when you can’t find cards to match the colors in your photos. I really like the contrast of the black and white with the bright colors in her paint set.
These pages really came together very quickly. I love how easy it is to put something together with neutral colors like black and white and gray!
