Design Team Tips With Lizzie Jones

Join Lizzie Jones today as she shares how to recreate the look of boxed notes you often find in stationery stores.

“I love trying to recreate the look of boxed notes that I see in fancy stationery stores. There’s no reason to buy that expensive stationery when I can make something very similar with the supplies I already own! In today’s post I’m sharing a few tips to create that upscale look with the stamps and dies you probably have in your own collection. I hope you’ll hop on over and join me!”

    A SUPER POST, Lizzie! My mind has been on making these “classic” Thank You cards for sometime, as gifts (Valentines maybe?) ! LOVE that you used the Edgers Dies with them too! 😉 QUITE CLASSIC & they NEVER go “out of style!”

    Been stuck on my Christmas thank yous, and your red gingham stood out to me, could add just a winter greenery beside the sentiment and I would be good to go for mass production! Thanks for the ideas!
