Sometimes you need to step outside your comfort zone and do something different. I usually work exclusively with Stampin’Up! product, but that doesn’t mean that is all I have. I have been know to purchase an odd pack of paper now and again, but I do try to refrain. This one was purchased for a daughters school project on Japan and ended up not being used. Lucky me.
I decided to use it for a special handout for a church lesson I had the opportunity to teach this last Sunday to some very special young women. The lesson turned out rather nice, tissues were used, mostly by me of course, but I was so impressed with their knowledge and ability to learn. When people talk about the youth today being lost, I don’t always agree.
Yes, this stamp is from last years Sale-a-bration. I loved it so much I couldn’t part with it. Remember, we buy creative products because they bring us and others joy. And when you purchase quality product, it is built to last. Stampin’Up! surely does that.
Each of these card handouts was made from a 6 x 12 sheet of cardstock. They were scored at 4 1/4 and 8 1/2″ to create the tri-fold. I wanted a bit more stability, because it was intended to be opened and closed as well as written on, so I inserted three panels of white card stock on each portion. It really made a difference and provided a great writing surface.
While I might not always start with the best attitude for my service opportunities, I can honestly say that I always end up with great feelings of joy and gratitude. Nothing better.
Have a creative day!
