Summer Card Camp

Thought I'd flex my design muscles and take an online card making course. It gives me a chance to use fresh colour ways and different papers. I love the work of both Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner and was thrilled when they announced the course. Week one has a really bright colour story - which is understandable given they are in the height of summer over there- still it warms up the depth of winter down here! Gave me a chance to play with Basic Grey's Sweet Threads collection!

Saturday Sketch June #1

I've been away for a while, with not much time for scrapbooking. It was exciting to get home on Sunday to find lots of little parcels from my favourite online stores. I thought I'd stretch my scrap muscles a bit last night and do a layout based on a Saturday Sketch from the Kaisercraft blog. Because I'm more of a card maker and a Beyond The Page project gal I find sketches really helpful in pushing me in new directions. It's great to be home!
Materials: Up Up and Away range - papers, chipboard and rub ons
