Convention was a great time and I came home with some really good ideas to spur on my creativity (and hopefully yours!) and my business. I will wrap up with my (non-winning) contest projects tomorrow, and my Artisan Projects as part of the 2012 Artisan Design Team will wrap up by the last day of July. Look for some new twists to my blog beginning in August.
I am blessed to have a very handy daughter who set up a cool station for me to video in my craft room. She hung a frame that can stay up all the time for my camera and lighting. Making it easier means I can make videos more often. Being home and having a vision - my idea of a happy day!
Here's a memory from another fun day.
First of all, I am absolutely crazy about this photo. The eyes say it all to me! So I made sure my elements would draw your eye right to the youngest girl's face by composing a triangle of the butterfly, the HI, and her eyes.
Whenever I see that a craft is hybrid, I want to know which supplies are digital and which are actual. So I'll spell it out for you. On my page, the 12 x 12 background, dotted and striped patterned papers, both flags, the sequin, and text were sent to Stampin' Up! for printing. After receiving the printed part of the page, I layered the arrow patterned paper, doilies, tag, rhinestones and ribbon on top. The HI circle, heart and butterfly, and papers are elements from the April Showers Designer Kit for My Digital Studio. This kit is just my style and the coordination of the elements makes it so easy to complete a page.
The next 12 x 12 page has no digital elements. It's a simple layout that reflects the joy of my son and his beautiful bride on their wedding day. Karen dressed in fabulous flirty vintage style, even down to her purple shoes. Made me smile all day long.
In keeping with the classic clean look, I fashioned white flowers using the Fun Flower Die and scalloped circle punches. Sprinkled them across the page--and who doesn't love just a little lace?
I'll be back tomorrow with the first and the last of the projects that I made. See you then!
