Paper Crafters May Sampler 2014- “Thrice in Design”


PCS May 2014 smal


The designers at Paper Crafters Sampler put together a fun, yet challenging, sampler this month that offers three times more flair than the previous issue. The May 2014 issue, “Thrice In Design”, features design projects with trio’s, three’s, and third’s in mind.  Each project simply had to contain “3” of something, be it images, layers or shapes. This month’s template is also designed with the trio concept in mind; the Pocketed Triptych.
Here is a sneak peek of my project…
Head on over to the Paper Crafters Sampler to see not only this month’s issue but all past issues available. You won’t be disappointed.


Paper Crafters Sampler Easter Cross Templates

 Need a little vignette for an Easter table or side buffet table? Melanie Schulenberg at Paper Crafters Sampler has just what you need. Here are a few projects I made quite easily.

SU Stippled Blossoms Both Crosses


I wanted to share this Free Standing Wedge Base Cross Easter Decoration- a project you can download over at the Paper Crafters Sampler website. Melanie Schulenburg has  done the work for us and created an easy printable template to create this free standing cross in no time at all. All I had to do was print it, cut it, score it, and decorate it. It is about 7.5″ tall by  6″ wide. I kept thinking how this would be a  great Girl Scout or Sunday School project.

SU Stippled Blossoms Standing Cross CLBD

I also made this  3.5″ by 5.5″ Cross Box with a template Melanie created. You can find this template with all the awesome projects created for that month for just $6.99.
