What Do Windows and Sheets Have in Common?

Well, not much in the card world, except that they're not really windows but they do come in sheets? Confused? So am I. I never was good at being clever, so let me just cut to the chase.

SU! has a new product called Clearly Thanks Printed Window Sheets. They are 8.5"x11" sheets of acetate with designs printed on them in white. These can be quartered to create 4 card fronts for quick, easy cards. Today's post highlights two of the four designs. These are available as part of the current Occasions Mini Catalog, and I don't know if they'll be carried after the catalog sales period ends next month. So, if you like these, either shop online by clicking on the shop 24/7 button in the upper right corner of my blog, or go directly to the link provided and choose me, Jenn Nahrstadt, as your demonstrator and have them delivered to your door!

This card highlights why the set of sheets (there are 2 sheets to a pack for $5.95) is called Clearly Thanks. What a quick way to get a thank you card made and mailed! This one starts with a base of Baja Breeze and has a mat of striped Kraft from the Taste of Textiles paper pack. It's 10 sheets of 12"x12" square heavyweight patterned and textured card stock. The butterfly is from Great Friend, another Occasions Mini offering. The button is from a package of a variety of sizes of corduroy buttons in Baja Breeze. These too are an Occasions Mini offering. Can you tell there's a lot of great stuff in this catalog? The ribbon is 5/8" BB striped ribbon. The button is actually a brad, so I attached it through the acetate and the Kraft layer, then mounted the whole thing with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Here's another card using the Clearly Thanks Window Sheets. This image of dandelions so speaks "summer", and I embellished these with small BB corduroy brad buttons. I used the butterfly again, as well as the sentiment and label image from Great Friend, since these cards are two for this month's Stamp-A-Stack tomorrow.

There's still plenty of time to order from the Occasions Mini. You can even host a class at your house or mine or some neutral (i.e. no one has to clean!) location and see other products from this fabulous catalog. Leave me a comment if you're interested in setting something up!
