Ally Oop, Oop…Dinosaurs!

Hello Friends!

I had some Dinosaur DSP I needed to use, but I didn’t

purchase the Stamp Set! Soooo…I strolled to Hobby Lobby,

I found these cute Dinosaur puffy stickers to use, instead!

Here are the Cards!

100_7066

Aren’t they Cute?

 

Here are the backs of the Cards!

100_7065

Card #3

100_7062

Terracotta Tile Cardstock!

 

Card #4

100_7063

Pretty Peacock Cardstock!

HERE ARE THE STOCK AND MEASURES:

CARDSTOCK:

All Card bases, 4.25″ x 8″ score @ 1.25″, 2.5″, 5.5″, and 5.75″

I took a 5.5″ x 8.5″ piece of cardstock (normal A2 size) I cut down to 4.25″ x 8″

Now score all the scores on the 8″ side (landscape)

The piece cut from the 8″ side, cut down to 5.5″ (this is the bridge piece)

Cut DSP- 4 pcs. 1″ x 4″ (or just 2 pcs and use Neutral cardstock for the 2 inside panels.)

Cut 1 piece of cardstock 1″ x 5.25″ (for the bridge piece)

Cut 2 panels, 2.75″ x 4″ (center panels for front and back of card.)

100_7066

I still have a few pieces of DSP left over from the pack,

I will have to go buy more dinosaurs!

I probably will make regular A2 Cards

from the scraps and leftover 6″ x 6″ pcs.

 

 

ON THE SAME PAGE!

When a new Catalog or Mini Catalog is ready to come out, being Demonstrators, we get to pre-order DSP, ribbon, and elements ahead of time. I  usually do not buy what I am not sure of…so other demonstrators have “shares” they offer for a price. I usually order the ‘DSP’ only shares to see, in person, the DSP, before I buy. It also will dictate wether I buy more items from the ‘Suite’. The Dinosaur DSP and stamp set, just wasn’t on my to get list.

I did buy the share, and the Dinosaur DSP was in it. I get a pack of 2 pcs., 6″ x 6″ of each page of the DSP. I had to figure out how to use this up! I do have some young nephews now, so I will now be using these up too! BTW, girls like dinosaurs too!

I did make 2 each of these Cards for a total of 16 cards! I’m set for awhile!

Use the bridge Card measurements to make other kinds of cards! It is a real different fold and it does fit into out Medium size envelopes too! Just the same size as an A2 card! Have Fun! Experiment! You’ll be Glad you DID!!!!!

 

Until the next Post…Blessings and Dinosaur Roawr’s to you ALL!

Ready for Warmer Weather?

Hello All!

Are you ready for warmer weather? I am!

We were teased with balmy weather that ended about a week ago.

It has been so cold. My energy level is on a big halt!

I know it is cold every where, but truth be told…so spoiled with

the great weather we had…I told Mr Hubster that we should have moved further South.

But from what I understand…Florida is cold too! Oh well.

I will be getting back on here starting tomorrow. I have finished with

all rescheduled Dr.’s Office visits (annual checkups and stuff).

Still have a mammogram for next month!

The new shelf unit is in the craft room and I have rearranged the room!

Oh my, I was dead on with all the measurements!

The unit fits, snugly, but it fits!

Chat later!

I woke up yesterday with ANOTHER COLD!

I feel miserable! I just got over a cold, just before Christmas!

I told Mr. Hubster that I am going to wear a mask the next time I go to the Dr.’s Office.

The last one kicked my butt, this is bothering me now!

Oh well, it is what it is! This too, shall pass!

Until the next Post…Blessings and Health to you ALL!
