Change One Letter....

I've had a month of busy busy busy and not alot of time devoted to scrapping or art. But actually, I don't really mind because I still got things done and felt like I have achieved something. I've been working on this card (what feels like) FOREVER this month and found it darn challenging. I knew what I wanted, but I just couldn't make it happen. So I've had to settle for this.

I was inspired initially by the Archi-scraps May 2017 comp and was trying to do something with it I've always wanted to - have a kraft coloured background and have the flowers/items spring forth from it - but it didn't come off! Oh well.

It is a card not a scrapbooking page, and maybe that made the difference. One day I'll do that page I'm dreaming of.

See? Didn't quite work out. There's something missing and I can't work out what it is. I changed the background to a dark colour in the end to get some contrast which is a cheat and not the right thing to do. Maybe I'll come up with the solution and then post it in here!

The inspiration. How hard can it be?

Ingredients: when I get over my grrrrr with this layout I will put them in!!

Happy Birthday Dad Card 2017 digi

I've noticed that the birthday cards for my Dad are always quite detailed and rarely based on a digital scrapbooking page I've already created as mid year I usually have time to create something from scratch (whereas other family members are closer to Christmas). That said, this year I did actually use a page as a base - my 'Art Fix' page.

I was inspired by the Cardz 4 Guys challenge blog which required a card to be "brown", but missed out on that comp. Still, I ended up with a really good card, and one I feel my Dad would like. I put lots of wood in and only a tiny amount of flowers. I was really happy with it.

This is the scrapbooking page I created before the card which I used as a base :

Although this method is scraplifting my own work, it does help get a card out quicker and also gives me a chance to use my creativity to put a different spin on the card/2nd project.
