Howdy peeps! Well, this week is coming to a close and I hope you’ve had a good one! I’m happy to be back to share another ScrapbookingStore DT inspiration project with you today, created with the amazing April 2023 Scrapbook Kit with Upgrades! I like to make my own backgrounds with cut strips of patterned paper, and the variety of papers in this month’s collection makes that really simple to do. I created a square panel of diagonal stripes which I cut into four pieces. I rotated a couple of them to come up with a unique pattern and then added a journaling card from the collection which I layered on a floral pattern and used as the focal element.
I cut a 5-1/4” square top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock. I cut strips from two coordinating papers in the collection and created a diagonal pattern which I cut into four pieces. I rotated two of them and adhered them to the card base. I trimmed a journaling card in the collection and layered it on a coordinating print, and used it as the focal element. I added one die cut heart from the upgrades and one heart sticker from the sticker sheet.
I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with two leftover patterned paper strips used on the front. I layered the panel on the same pattern used to layer the focal element on the front, and added two sentiment stickers from the sticker sheet.

I LOVE what you have done with the papers Leslie, that is so clever of you? I don’t think like that, must be my simple mind. LOVE, LOVE your clever and beautiful card.
