So I have gone through some of my Cards and Scrapbook pages that I have made in the last 4 or so months and have decided to share them with you all. I am starting to get quite a collection together which is nice, it gives me some sense of achievement knowing where I had very first started from to now. Wow, I am not going to share my first few projects with you though they are very basic and how do I say it not straight, not cut properly, not stamped properly everything you get with a first time project... What I have done here is again an 8x8 layout and matching card. I like working with 8x8 because they tend not to overwhelm me, and if you do like to do 12x12 just mount on to some 12x12 card or paper and you have a great start to a page.
Tip: See how I have created the card to be very similar to the page well, you can use this trick if you are out of ideas or lacking inspiration. See on my card how I have the Close to Coco strip on the left hand side, look on the layout and you will see that the mounting is the same and also where the sentiment is, is where my photo is... get me. I'll try again, see how the basic layout is the same, Pixie Pink background, then Kraft and Close to Cocoa mounted up (both have it) then photo corner punch on the side with rhinestone brad also making an appearance on both... catching on now. You can use this tip for most of your work, start with a simple layout then add your colour, stamps and embellishments. So for the pictures, I hope you enjoy and I haven't confused you to much.
