Quick & Simple is the name of the game today —

Today’s project is a part of an Instagram Hop (starts at 11AM Central) featuring spring projects from some fellow Scrapbook.com Affiliate Bloggers. As I was busy working on a number of other projects, I decided on something quick and simple.

There are so many possibilities from using different color combinations or patterns to filling each section with a different texture or using the die as a kind of mask…. I know this will be a staple die in my toolbox!

So, here’s the crazy thing – the die works either direction!

I created my version using various Lawn Fawn cardstock. Then I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair (Nocturne) using a Scrapbook.com exclusive stamp set – Sentiments for Every Day (50% off through today!)

So, do you think there is a right way?
