Here she is, Sweet and Sassy, and ain't she cute! Thanks to Tiets for taking time out to play with her and I am just loving this colour combo. Pearls are becoming big news and altho I don't think they will replace bling as one of my favourite embellishment they will sit nicely along side them on my craft table.
Trends in cardmaking?
Are there trend or is there just so much of everything that everything is then trendy?
I am very much influenced by the European crafter's in that there is far more detail in they way that they put a card together, more matting and lots of flowers and brads, where as in the UK we tend to have little of anything on the cards, not that we are tight with our stash but its something that is changing for the better, flat cards are out and busy cards are in. I think my "minimal" look comes for making cards as a business and costing everything out, where as making cards for pleasure is completely different.
SO my challenge to you is use up that mountain of stash and try a little more matting and use up those flowers too. USE up your stash, because I bet, you have more than you can every use!
Rule of thirds is for scrapbooking
in card making the rule of threes..............three patterned papers, three different embellishments and three of each. Give it a try and lets get busy.
