DSP for Him

 
 What a week...from earthquake to hurricane...all I can say is thank you Lord for your grace and blessings during these days! I made today's card for dear hubby. It features the The Open Sea stamp set #123030 $26.95 and coordinating Designer Series Paper Nautical Expedition #122343 $10.95 found in the Summer Mini catalog and available through August 31. The stamp set and paper are available in My Digital Studio downloads The Open Sea Brush Set #124112 $3.95 and Nautical Expedition DSP #124111 $4.95 for you digital creations.

Before this paper retires, I am going to take advantage of the August special and stock up. Speaking of paper. I was doing a little research this morning about SU's paper, here's what I found:
Acid Free-a paper that is "Acid Free" it simply means that the paper mixture has a pH above 7.0. This makes for a more stable paper that will not discolor or break down over time.
Lignin Free- lignin is a "glue" that binds the cells of the tree and creates its structure. Approximately one third of the tree is lignin. This material can cause paper to alter over time and become unstable. This product is removed in the kraft process.
Remember to store your paper in a cool dry place. Moisture overtime will make your paper curl.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Happy creating!
