A fun layout

I have recently added a TON of stamping blogs to my Google reader so I can actually keep up with them, instead of reading hit and miss, and then trying to remember where I saw some wonderful inspiration...

One of those blogs is Mama Dini's Stamperia. I found a super cute card on her blog, you can see it here. I knew right away that I had to case the card layout, because of it's simplicity and the fun way it shows off pattern paper. It is a basic A2 size card, but you just trim an inch off the right side of the top panel.

So here are a couple cards I created using that layout. The first card uses a Penny Black hedgehog stamp and double sided pattern paper from Bo Bunny. The sentiment is from the retired Stampin' Up set Small Sayings.

The second card uses the Sweeter Treaters set from Stampin' Up, which is also retired. I rarely make Halloween cards, but I happened to see a really cute card in Stamp It! cards magazine last summer, and I decided I had to have the set. I got a decent deal on ebay off season, so I figured I better put the set to use. I just picked this Halloween paper up at Hobby Lobby. The bat paper is from Frances Meyer, and the stripes and spooky words paper are both from KI Memories.

So there you have it! Two ideas for this fun layout. I know this is one I will definitely use again and again.

Have a great day, everyone!

Love the cards and layout idea. Is the pattern paper on the inside just a strip...or does it cover then entire inside?
