I've long considered myself a card making scrapper. :) I started making cards so I could play with all the lovely girlie paper and embellies that are available. Having 3 boys does not lend oneself to using a lot of flowers and pretty things. Card making lets me! Ah, sweet freedom! *laugh*
Here is a card I made just yesterday. Have any of you been following Paper Craft's Gallery Idol?
This is a lift of the lovely Shanna Vineyard's card that she made to get herself in the top 15. I absolutely loved it and wanted to make one. :) I change up the flower a bit, hand stitched a little and added that cute snail, but the overall design is hers.
As much as I enjoy card making, scrapping still brings me great joy! In the last year I have switched from the 12x12 format to 8.5x11 and have been much happier with my layouts. I still do the occasional 12x12, usually for a sketch challenge, but am much happier with the smaller format. Here is a layout I did for Kim's
Color Challenge at My Sketch World.
For those of you who live in Michigan, I am aware that I spelled Ocqueoc wrong, but I couldn't get the letters up once I stuck them on the paper so I'm choosing to overlook it. *laugh* I didn't have much new product with these colors so this was made with scraps! Love that.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Sunday, friends!
