Hello, April! Goodness, I have a busy month ahead, having said that I am looking
forward to pretty much all of the event coming. This coming week, Stampin’ Up!
has a demonstrator event Friday and Saturday all around the world. I am attending
the event at Luna Park in Syndey; I am SO looking forward to seeing some of
my team and friends who I only see at Stampin’ Up! Events, the relationships
I have made over the past Ten years are a huge part of I love about this amazing
company. One of the activities that I enjoy regularly (every second Sunday)
with part of my team is our INKspired blog hop; for new readers, I design a sketch
for the team to use as inspiration to create their own card. I design the sketches
months ahead of time and this weeks sketch was designed mid-2016. When I looked
at the sketch earlier in the week, I was like WHAT was I thinking shortly after
I was talking to my mum who is also a demonstrator, she told me quote
“that sketch is the worst sketch you have ever given us”
With that vote of confidence from mum/Barbara, I went to our Facebook
group to apologise to the girls. To my surprise, it seems only two of us
had a problem with the layout. Note: I love using GIF files to express myself
Here is the sketch in question, it is really hard to work with!
I have already had a sneak peek at Renee’s card and she rocked it.
And here is my creation with the worst sketch ever!
The advantage to being creatively challenged is that you step outside
your comfort zone, I like leaving “white space” in my card designs but
this card has much more than I would prefer, I found that adding
the pearls open the field of vision; one of them may also be covering
a little ink mark that I somehow got on the card as I was attaching
the linen thread. Pearls save the say again.
Now, it is hop over to the sweetest stamper in the world
who has created a card for a very fun event, our dear Renee Lynch
