Have you tried a Close to My Heart (CTMH) Workshop on the Go? Now that CTMH has upgraded their patterned paper to a two sided cardstock weight, I had to give their workshop kits a spin. While I did not follow the workshop guide to make a layout – the exclusive stamp set in the kit, the patterned paper and the techniques in the full color instruction were perfect for a 4th of July card. All I had to do was pull out a stamp set with the perfect sentiment and I was ready to stamp!
As always, I have a “lesson learned” from this crafting session – punch out circles of cardstock and then stamp the half scallops (or in my case the star scallops) onto the punched out circles. I tried to stamp first then punch – but could punch close enough to the edge.
