See A Silhouette Mix and Match

At OnStage Live in April, Sara Douglass, CEO of Stampin’ Up! showed us her idea for a class.  She is a very vibrant, spunky woman, quite clean-and-contemporary in her taste (very different from her mom’s soft, vintage, shabby-chic taste; yes, her mom is Shelli Gardner, co-founder and Chair of the Board at SU!).

Her plan is to give each attendee ¼ of a package of the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper (½ sheet of each of 6 sheets) and have them punch the entire stack with the Tailored Tag Punch, then adhere the punched pieces to Notecards and add sentiments.  Here’s what some of her projects looked like (in a quick photo of the giant video screen):


Pretty cool, right?  So I decided to make my own version during my Facebook Live broadcast last Wednesday.  You can watch the replay on Facebook or YouTube, and even set up reminders on each for when I go live, or when I post a replay.  I made a few during that broadcast, and showed them with various sentiments.  I will be gifting the complete set of 15 notecards, and have attached Dimensionals to the back of the sentiments but not to the cards themselves.  This will allow the recipient to choose the appropriate sentiment and card to send out.

It’s like quilt piecing!  So much fun colour and pattern to play with!

​Here are all 15 notecards:







Here’s what’s needed to make these cards…add whatever sentiments you have on hand, or use the suggested sentiment sets I’ve listed below (including Here’s to Strong Women, the set used by Sara):
