A Shortcut? Sign me up!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday! I am SOOO excited to share something UBER cool with you today!!

There She Goes is having an exciting week of samples showcasing the AWESOME producs from Shortcuts!!

Shortcuts, launched in June of 2008 & the sister site to SheetLoad of Cards, is dedicated making your papercrafting quicker and easier. Everybody likes a short cut every now and then!

The first Shortcuts product, available for purchase since July 1, 2008 was Gift Card Holder Folders, and that is what I used here today!

Let me tell you...it does NOT get any easier than this! The Gift Card Holder Folders come with handy directions (although it is SO easy you don't even really need them), and I was able to whip this up in no time at all!!!

For my Gift Card Holder Folder, I started by stamping this BEAUTIFUL flower from Bloom by There She Goes in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers. I framed my flower in Oval Nestabilities and sponged the edges with Old Olive ink to soften and define them.

I stamped the sentiment, "I appreciate your kindness", which is also from Bloom, in Memento Tuxedo Black directly onto my patterned paper, which is Lovely Flowers from SU! (A Level 3 Hostess Bundle).

I added paper piercing and finished off my card with a Whisper White Organdy Ribbon! I LOVE how this turned out and am no longer afraid of making gift card holders thanks to this AWESOME product!!

Shortcuts also has another FABULOUS new product that they offer, Clear and Frosted Card Blanks, which are the BOMB! They are also available in full sheets (8.5 X 11)! Check back Friday to see a project I made with this product!!

Their ready-to-assemble-and-decorate products will help you create stunning creations in minutes. Make sure to drop by their blog for lots of inspiration from their wonderful design team. Two (2) lucky winners this week will each receive a $10 ShortCuts Gift Certificate!!
