Making myself feel really brilliant today, while I was working on figuring out the layout of this sketch and trying to get the measurements correct for cutting, all of a sudden I realized that the correct measurements are actually written on the sketch. I sware I spend so much time looking at the shapes on a sketch that I just didn’t notice that there were numbers, Well that made things easier. Geezes, Gina!
Every since I got this months kit I have been thinking about how to use these leaves and when I saw this sketch this seemed like a good fit. I like how they are thin enough to not overwhelm the card, but they are large enough that you don’t have to use a lot of them to cover the area. I don’t know that they are something that I would buy on my own, and yet I am so happy to get to play with them, that is what I love about the monthly kits!
Sometimes I know a general idea of what I want to do for a challenge, and most of the cards I make are inspired by challenges (well it is a whole complex thing but we will just go with that for now), but I don’t know how I am going to pull it off until I find a sketch that works. That was the case with this card. Occasionally I can just put a card together without a sketch, but most of the time I do better with at least the idea of one to work with. read more
When I got distracted by the pumpkin sprite the other day this is the turkey sprite that I was originally after. Totally cute right? I just really have a soft spot for pumpkins, what can I say? I am so glad that I remembered that it was the turkey I wanted and went back and got it. read more
Even when I try so very hard not to use the same stamp set on a challenge! At least it wasn’t the main image this time. It was accidental even, I was making this a congratulations card and the stamp at hand just happened to be in the set I was trying so hard to stay away from using. Isn’t that just the way it works? read more
