Today, I'm featuring the Destination Paris and Heart Pattern Bold Prints:


I'm so excited to see that Paris (and London!) have been added to the Destination Collection!

I made a shaker card, the confetti/sequins are iridescent hearts!  The Destination Paris has been heat embossed in copper <-- love that stuff!


Do you see the Heart Pattern Bold Prints in the background?  It has been heat embossed in white.

  129. Hi, I love you too. The copper is really pretty. Paris is one of my favorite cities in the world not that I have visited every city ... but of the ones I've been to Paris just lights up my heart. That you will be thrilled to find out that you get a lot of value for your dollar. There are wonderful boutique hotels under the umbrella of best Western that are privately owned and located all over the city. They are charming and lovely and priced from $80 to $170 a night and almost always include breakfast...try and do that in NYC! Or here in NC! Email me if you want ideas or maybe you can give some to me... ldyjs@outlook.com
