Challenge! Everyone can be a card maker!

Happy Sunday everyone!

I follow Vicki Boutin regularly and she is one of the hugest influencers in letting loose and just playing. She is real, honest and passionate about art, in all forms.

If any of you are like me this is challenging! I always want to know what the finish project will be so getting out of this comfort of "planning" is outside my comfort zone. But I am doing it and loving the new found freedom!

Lately I played with alcohol inks and Lavinia Stamps. I messed around with these for a full afternoon and in the end I didn't "love" any of them enough to use for cards. But my goodness I had fun and I learned about the products and substrates.

Yesterday I wanted to create by not really put much thought into it so I put on a movie, spotted the beautiful but somewhat out of control collection of Vicki Boutin embellishments (see photo below ;) 
and my tossed aside card fronts from the day of play.

Without any thought I started to pull pieces that matched the color palette on the card fronts, some dimensional tape and magic happened!

I now LOVE these cards! 

Start with play ( I know the kool-aid drinkers out there with several backgrounds that can be cut down to card size) and then pull in embellishment pieces- ANYONE can do this!

Check out the dimension on these cards with the layering!

As always I hope this inspires you to create!

Love doing Mini Albums! It is a way to use up reams of beautiful paper down to every last scrap!

The design for these projects was seen over at Younique Scrapbook facebook so the credit goes there!

Paper line and cut a parts used was Paper Phenomenon Flight 2715

These Mini Albums will hold 35+ photo's and other memorabilia. All three are themed for Travel.

Be Yourself

Since I took the pressure of myself to relax and just have fun with the paper I've really been enjoying the art of scrapbooking again.

Paper line: Carta Bella Flora no.2; sewing and enamel dots! I love layering with the paperline and some complimentary care stock!
