Well, from looking at other peoples blogs and other card making websites, I have found some brilliant inspiration! Not only are there layouts for cards/scrapbook pages, but there are examples of them too.. so.. on a definate try to achieve my goal, I'm going to refer to these places quite often.
So here we go with my first ever card challenge..
BEATES WEEKEND SKETCH CHALLENGE #31
This card was based on a sketch from Beates blog, link on the right (not sure how to enclose it here!)
Using one of the paper pieced magnolias I stamped up last week, and a Pink Petticoat phrase, mounted up on pink c/s and using a A5 sheet from my Payper box.
HUGE 3/16 eyelets that I've had from a RAK and never used them!
DI HICKMAN CARD SKETCH JAN#4
This from another great site for sketches!!
I posted a comment on Jenny's blog (Stamping Moments) saying that my favourite colours atm are Chocolate brown and lime green, however, I can't remember using them in combination together very much, so I gave it a go!
The c/s again is from my Payper Box (still using this up ready for some new stock!) and the green papers are from a pack I bought at the craft club I go to, Dotty About Cards. The phrase is Pink Petticoat and the flower is from a pack I bought from Lakeland in the sales (Brown and pink embellishment box - another great colour combination!). The gem is a Dovecraft one, I'm always worried about them falling off, but it seems to have stayed stuck!
WELL, I hope that you enjoyed them! I enjoyed making them and shall be (hopefully) keeping up with the challenges.. and seeing what I can come up with.
Bye for now,
