Hi there crafty peeps! It's time again for Papertrey Ink's Throwback Thursday! It's when the design team features older stamps and dies and gives them new ideas and flair!

Perfect to make 'artsy' cards and to make cool backgrounds. So many possibilities with this set! I decided to go with a rainbow theme for today - since all I've been posting is Christmas lately! I was ready for something a little different! I created a background of... Continue reading
