TSG meets ShortCuts

I am so excited to finally share with you guys something that has been in the works for quite a while now. There She Goes is proud to be teaming up with ShortCuts this week and I (along with some of the other Trendsetters!) will be sharing projects all week using some fabulous products from ShortCuts.

ShortCuts launched in June of 2008, the sister site to SheetLoad of Cards, is dedicated making your papercrafting quicker and easier. Everybody likes a short cut every now and then!

The first ShortCuts product, available for purchase since July 1, 2008, was Gift Card Holder Folders (GCHF).

The latest ShortCuts product, Clear & Frosted Card Blanks, will help you to make fabulous clear and frosted cards. Each of the stocks is made of a thick vinyl material. Think clear/frosted cardstock – none of that flimsy transparency material. Best of all the clear cards are fingerprint resistant. No more wearing white gloves while making your clear cards. You can also purchase the Clear & Frosted material in Full Sheets (8.5” x 11”).

Their ready-to-assemble-and-decorate products will help you create stunning creations in minutes. Make sure to drop by their blog for lots of inspiration from their wonderful design team.

Two (2) lucky winners this week will each receive a $10 ShortCuts Gift Certificate!! Just add your name to the Mr. Linky at the end of this post and 2 winners will be chosen next Monday July 27th.

Want to try ShortCuts for yourself, while saving money at the same time?!?! Just visit their Online Store and enter the discount code “TSG15” during checkout and receive 15% off your order!! *15% will be taken off package price(s) only, not S/H charges. Orders must contain at least $5.00 in product, and be placed before September 1, 2009.

The first ShortCuts project I have to share with you uses the fabulous Frosted Card Blanks. I have to tell you that these things are amazingly sturdy! I have never worked with a product like it and I am in love :)

This first picture is of the card together. I needed to put it in a clear envie to get it to stay together since the card base is so sturdy! Did I mention love??
Card front- How pretty does that frosted card base look?
And here is the inside of the card. I used the new set Bloom and colored it using colored pencils. I then cut it out and added it to the main layer with dimensionals. (The background was first stamped with sahara sand)
I hope that you all enjoyed today's project! Make sure you add your name to the Mr. Linky at the end of this post for your chance to win one of two $10 gift certificates!! I look forward to sharing more projects with you during the week :)
