Slim Slayings Tutorial …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m ready to shake off the old and kick off this new year with positivity and creativity! I hope you’ll join me in the challenge of sharing more joy this year. The new January-2-June Mini Catalog is packed with just what you need to kick start your creative projects. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, you’ll want to make a point to see some of the exciting new goodies.

I’m so giddy about the new Slim Sayings Bundle, that I just had to use it for this month’s tutorial. I think you’ll love this fresh card style, too!

This tutorial features the Slim Sayings Bundle (#157966) and the Sweet Talk 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper (#157616) to make a sweet card for a fabulous friend!
