We regret that we are unable to advise the reader of a source of supply for the materials used in the projects on the Card Making Inspirations web site.
The layouts and techniques used in these projects are timeless. However, products such as stamps, stickers and patterned papers are quickly discontinued to be replaced by new items. When this happens we suggest that there is a lot of satisfaction in finding an alternative product that suits the design.
