It’s almost time for a new YouTube Live! I hope you’re enjoying the YouTube Lives. I am having a great time sharing and interacting with you every Thursday afternoon. This week, I have 4 Flash Card 2.0 cards to share with you featuring a fun, new stamp set called Borders Around (page 55 of the Annual catalog). This set was designed by a dear Stampin’ Up demonstrator friend of mine who also reached her $1m in sales around the same time as me. Kim designed a super fun stamp set that focuses on borders and this set is PERFECT for Flash Card 2.0. Let’s have some fun creating cards with this stamp set together.
