We’ve been experiencing some really crazy weather here in Michigan with the temps being in the upper 90’s and 100’s. This brings on extreme thunder storms that have caused pretty widespread power outages. Luckily for me the shop has nice big windows to let in the light so I just stayed positive and kept on working : )
I’m still working with large coin envelopes that I created with craft paper and filled with scrap cardstock for sturdiness and weight. This time I added tons of layers of chipboard stickers and printed journal tags in endless fun combinations. What a great way to use up my stash of salvage and scrap items : )
I’ve also added die cuts and doily’s, buttons and bows.
I mixed and matched vintage with retro style for my own unique combinations.
This color scheme is a little unexpected…but certainly cheerful : )
I used a tiny printed sheet music from Graphic’s fairy for my background and add lot’s of dimension with layered chipboard stickers.
I found that by using 2 identical journal cards…one right side up and one upside down…I could make a nice large border for my background. The craft paper is a nice neutral..making a set of what might look like mismatched cards.
My original plan for these cuties was to bind them and add tags to create a book…however this is the 1st five cards of twelve that I created yesterday…so way to thick to make into a book. Maybe they will become journal covers to make holiday planners…or maybe strung together for a banner….or just individual cards with tags : ) I’ll share more tomorrow…hope you all have a wonderful day and find time to be creative : )
