My favorite project that I made for my presentation at OnStage in Hartford was my 12 x 12 sampler using a bit of everything from the entire suite. I guess you like it too as I have received so many emails and comments asking for close up pictures and a template to download. So here you go!! If you have any questions, please send me an email!
For the Eiffel Tower I stamped the image from Parisian Beauty on Champagne foil paper with VersaMark then thermal embossed with black embossing powder. I then used the coordinating die to cut it out. The base of this panel was Champagne foil and I added the Parisian Blossoms DSP on top. The paper it is Petal Pink and the script is in Champagne foil, so beautiful! I attached the image with mini dimensionals and stamped “Amour” in memento black on Whisper White and punched it out with my Classic Label punch, I mounted in on Champagne foil and trimmed. This was also attached with mini dimensionals.
This floral spray from Forever Blossoms was done the same way as the Eiffel Tower. I really love how the black contrasts with the shiny foil it really makes the image stand out. For the saying I stamped “Love” on Whisper White and used the Stitched Shapes to cut it out, then mounted it on a piece of Champagne foil cut from Layering Ovals. Both were attached using mini dimensionals.
On the center panel I stamped the flowers in Memento Black and colored with Dark & Light Pool Party and Old Olive Blends then cut them out with the matching dies. I used the Petal Pink Satin Ribbon with Champagne metallic edging behind the saying and added a few Champagne Rhinestones.
For the remaining panels I wanted to use as much of the gorgeous Designer Series Paper as I could, adding accents of the smaller flowers, rhinestones and ribbon. The new Label Me Lovely punch was used on two of the sayings. This punch is not part of the Suite but will be in the 2020 January – June Mini Catalog (available January 3, 2020).
I came up with the design by starting in the middle with a large square and then built off that. I wanted something a bit different from the usual squares and to show the beautiful suite and how all the products coordinate so beautifully together. Feel free to download the template below to use in your own projects.

This sampler was made with my son Michael and his fiance Jen in mind. They are getting married next October and it would make a perfect gift for a special couple. I hope this inspires you to make your own samplers to celebrate someone special to you!
