Storybook Gnomes

Thanks for joining me on another Creativity Abounds Blog Hop, I have created a great card using the Storybook Gnomes.

I only received this in my order a couple of weeks ago and it is so much fun, I don’t know why I didn’t get it sooner. I have so many ideas running around my head and I just want to play…LOL!

You can find the Storybook Gnomes in the Stampin’® Up! July- December Mini Catalogue on pages 42 & 43. It is a suite Collection so you can order everything on one number – Storybook Gnomes 159630 or you can order by each product… REMEMBER order the Stamps and Dies as a Bundle and get the 10% discount Kindest Gnomes Bundle 159626

I have put together a PDF Tutorial on this card because I knew you would be asking me for it. All the measurements are listed in both Imperial and metric. You can just down load and use.
