My other woe is Blogger .... all my scheduled posts are going to draft and not posting but I suspect it something I am doing not necessarily Blogger ... who knows!
The new challenge over at Polka Doodles is a birthday themed one and I decided to challenge myself this week. I love downloads and CD crafting because it allows you to just print the items you want to create your project but in the same breath, it can make you a tad wasteful. Sometimes, I have quite a lot of papers and embellies left over, which I never throw away because you never know when you might need them again. So for this challenge, I decided only to print 1 A4 design, 2 A5 designs, an A4 page of embellies from the Octavia CD/download(s) and also use up the scrabble tiles from my previous project. All the items I have printed were inspired by my card (found here) for the last Polka Doodles challenge. This is what I came up with ...
Yep, I managed to make 3 cards using up almost all of the items I printed. Here's the first design ...
Simple mat and layering but I have raised certain elements (with 3D foam) to add dimension. The sentiment is also from the Octavia CD/download(s).
My second design, again using the same colour palate and embellies. I have raised the frame and weaved the papers under the frame for interest.
My added extra was the lace flower placed behind the heart. The sentiment has been made using the scrabble tiles.
My final design was made using "what was left"to frame another sentiment.
Again, I have raised certain elements to give dimension.
I really enjoyed stretching myself and was amazed how quickly I made all these cards and will definitely challenge myself to doing this again.
Right, better catch with my other "non published posts" ...
