DCWV's Garden Tea Party Stack

Several months ago when I got back into rubber stamping, I began looking in craft stores and online for some tea-themed scrapbooking papers. To my surprise, the offerings were pretty slim. One eBay seller was selling some pretty tea-themed single sheets for a few bucks each, and a little research revealed the sheets came from DCWV's new Garden Tea Party Stack of 48 papers, two each of 24 different designs. I looked online as well as at Michaels, Hobby Lobby and JoAnn and could not find this stack anywhere. In fact, I forgot about it and gave up—temporarily—on the search.

Friends, I am happy to report that it's time to pull out those 40 percent off Michaels coupons, for the Garden Tea Party Stack has now arrived at Michaels–or at least my local Michaels! Happily, I didn't even have to use my 40 percent off coupon on this because it was already on sale.

Now whether you're a stamper/scrapper or not, there is much to love about this stack. In addition to teapots, teacups, flowers and birds galore, some of the papers have tea "stains" on them, which gives them sort of an edgy/contemporary vibe.

There are also full sheets that would be perfect for scrapbooking as well as for invitations and signage for tea parties.

Another of my favorite pages in this stack is this page with lots of tea quotes.

I used one of them to make the very quick and simple card at left, and I used a teaspoon stamp my friend Lynn gave me to accent the card at right. This stacks retails for $19.99, but watch the sales or use a coupon and get it for just $12. I'm already thinking I may need to go back for another!

Thank you for letting us know about this! I really appreciate that Michael's lets you access their coupons via a smartphone app, because then I 'll always have a coupon ready if I just pop in! This pad would be lovely.

oops, that didn't come out right. Your cards are quite pretty. I would enjoy using the papers for cards, journal covers, as well as scrapbooking.
