Ladies Diary Heartbreak

Click Here for this month's challenge or use the challenge tab above.

Hello Everyone.  I am so frustrated at the moment, because I just discovered that the 8x8 paper pad from Graphics 45, A Ladies Diary is no longer available, and there are no plans to send this particular collection to print.

Can you believe this madness!  No one has the smaller pad and very few places have the 12x12 paper pack.  So far I have went through two of the 8x8 paper pads and now need at least two more.  Gosh darnit!!! Arghhhhhh!!

My scrapping BFF (Joyce) gave me her 8x8 paper pad (bless her heart) because I was delirious with frustration.  I still have 3 projects to complete and I need that paper.  Oh well since that just isn't going to happen, I guess I will have to find another collection to use...(crying softly).

Before I pass out from pure heartbreak allow me to share a tutorial on how to create a gift voucher card I found on the Graphic 45 blog.

The DP is all Graphic 45 "A Ladies Diary" and the card-stock is Stampin Up. The pearls are prima and I fussy cut both the lady and the flowers.  This was a very simple and easy card to make.

The inside I used paper from the same collection and then cut out a couple of the stamps from some scraps I had left.  There is a pouch on the right hand side where you can add a few vouchers/coupons for a spa treatment, or a gift card or even a simple tag with a sentiment.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:

Splendiferous Creations - Bloggers Challenge "A Feminine Touch" (5/9)
Annabelle Stamps Challenge - #162 Anything Goes (5/15)
Brown Sugar - Challenge #40 "Mother's Day"
Chocolate Coffee and Cards - Challenge #38 "Mother's Day/For Mum" (5/18)
Creative Corner - #17 - Flowers and/or Mothers Day
Inspire Me Fridays– Hosted on New Blog - 101 - Anything Goes! (5/8)

If you'd like to try this card for yourself just click the link below, and let me know if you post it on your blog so I can check it out.

That's it for tonight my crafty friends.  I'm going to sulk just a little bit more about the paper being unavailable, before I move on to another paper collection. I hear Graphic 45 has a new collection being released next month but in the meantime Prima has some really lovely paper collections.

Until next time hugs and smiles from me to you where-ever you are.
